The production, "Fractured Fairy Tales – Three tales with a twist," will be performed April 12-14.

Prof. Deborah Choszczyk, director of LSSU's dance program, said there are roles for male and female dancers, some with minimal dancing experience, actors, as well as tech support for hair, make-up, scene design and construction, lighting, music composition, costuming, and props. Musicians and a stage manager are needed, also.

"If you are interested in the production, please attend the audition," Choszczyk said.

Auditions will be held as follows:

For dancers: ballet barre and center floor work in modern. Dancers will be asked to present characters through dance and improv mime.

For dancers with minimal dance experience: Audition includes movement/dance combinations center floor with character emphasis – choreographed and improv.

Audition for actors: Actors will be asked to present characters through movement.

All dancers and actors will be asked to complete an availability schedule. Rehearsals will be determined from that. On-stage rehearsals are set for March 25-28 and tech/dress rehearsals are April 1-4 and 8-11.
