"The beloved musical will play two weekends at the Carson City Community Center May 7-16. Rehearsals begin in February.

Roles to be cast include 17 principal and secondary roles, including seven children, as well as an ensemble.

Auditioners should come prepared to sing a song under one minute long. They should bring a taped accompaniment or provide the accompanist with a musical score – a capella auditions are not advised. Solo auditions are recommended.

Callbacks for some performers will follow on Friday evening.
