KIDSTAGE Announces auditions for our spring musical productions

Teen Program - Grades 6-10 Auditions January 13, 14 (6-8 pm)

Geek. Poser. Jock. Beauty Queen. Wannabe … These are the labels that can last a lifetime. Following his parents divorce, Evan Goldman is plucked from his fast paced New York City life and plopped into a sleepy Indiana town. He needs to establish his place in the popularity pecking order. Can he situate himself on a comfortable link of the food chain, or will he dangle at the end? With an unforgettable rock score, 13 is a musical about fitting in and standing out!


Youth Program – Grades 1-5 Auditions January 13, 14 (4-6 pm)

Take a nostalgic trip back to the 50’s … The local high school is in trouble! Central High is unable to make the mortgage payments so the kids decide to put on a talent show to raise funds. Just when they think they’ve saved the day, the money goes missing. What are they to do? Why throw a sock hop with one of the biggest stars in show business, of course! Popular songs included in the score are favorites like: At the Hop, Blue Suede Shoes, Only You, and Rock and Roll is Here to Stay. This blast from the past is sure to be a hit!

AUDITIONS Held at Congregation Beth Shalom 3343 Walters Ave. Northbrook

REHEARSALS North Suburban YMCA 2705 Techny Rd. Northbrook

PERFORMANCES Gorton Community Center in April/May 400 East Illinois Rd. Lake Forest
