Retired Dunckel Middle School music teacher Kathy Seret says she's looking forward to musical directing the City of Farmington Hills youth theater program production of Tarzan the Stage Musical.
"This was right up my alley, this is my passion," said Seret, who also musical directs Farmington High School productions. "And of course, it's a Disney story, so it's magic for the kids."
For the first time this weekend, the city will hold drop-in auditions at the Costick Center, open to both beginning and seasoned actors in grades 1-12, as well as adults. Residents and non-residents may drop in at any time between 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday and 12 p.m.-5 p.m. on Sunday.
Many parts will be available in two large casts, and that's just fine with Seret.
"I love big numbers, it makes the kids feel more comfortable," she said.
Auditions are easy and friendly, and no preparation is necessary. Student participants are asked to bring a recent school photo; all other materials are supplied. Some preliminary materials for review are available at fhgov.com/YouthTheatre.
Performance dates will be spread over two weekends, including two casts performing at various times on November 15, 17, 22, 23 and 24.
