The Bigfork Playhouse Children’s Theater invites students in grades 2 through 6 to audition, Tuesday January 7, for the cast of “THE WILD WILD WILDEST WEST”,  – a Western style ‘meler-drama’ full of heroes, villains and damsels in distress.

Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’, keep the patrons rollin’…  in the aisles with laughter, that is!  Yup, pardners, here’s a hilarious musical spoof of many of the old Hollywood Westerns. Slick and wealthy Richard Coldheart (‘Oh, that’s Rich!’) must marry Polly Wanda Cracker to control the Cracker property.  However, it’s Polly’s homely sister, Prunella, who wants to marry him!  Meanwhile, our hero, Sheriff Wayne John, has his hands full surviving the hilarious antics of well-meaning but not-too-bright Deputy Doowrong.  When a bundle of villains, including Snydley Dastardly, Kid Kid and Calamity Jan, attempts to take over Low Humidity Chasm (Aren’t you sick and tired of Westerns taking place in Dry Gulch Canyon?).  This wild and wooly Western is not to be missed!

Auditions will be held at the Bigfork Playhouse Children’s Theatre afterschool Center on (on 833 Grand) on Tuesday, January 7th, from 4:30-5:30 PM for 2nd and 3rd grades, and 5:30-7:30 PM for 4th through 6th grades.  (Performances January 30 and Feb 1, 7, & 8 at 7:30 and February 9 at 2:00)

This production calls for a large cast of around 40.  It costs nothing to audition and only $50 to be a part of the show if cast.  Please prepare a 30 second Monologue or short selection from another play, poem or book, (we have several at the audition if you can’t find one) and plan to learn and sing something for us at the audition.  Don’t worry if you don’t have experience, we’ll have materials at the theatre for you. Wear comfortable shoes that you can move in, as we will be moving around the stage.  (Please do NOT SING your audition, we’ll teach you a song when you’re there)

Not interested in stage work but would like to be involved? Give us a call! We need help with the technical parts – building sets, props, costumes, lights and sound.  Parental and student assistance is welcome.  To sign-up and for more information, call 837-4886 or email bpct@bigforksummerplayhouse.com or check our website at www.bigforksummerplayhouse.com
