The Frog Princess will be presented Aug. at the Valley City Audi Aug. 26, said Jenni Lou Russi, director theater at Valley City State University.
The musical play is being put on by Jason Smith, a Valley City High School graduate who runs mini theater camps for children in Chicago, said his sister-in-law, Karen Kringlie.
Tuition for the camp will be $80, and should be paid to Valley City Parks and Recreation.
The show will take place at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., with an audition planned for 1 p.m. Aug. 20.
Rehearsals are scheduled to take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. from Aug. 21 through Aug. 25.
Tickets for the show will be $5 each.
Students should prepare a simple song and a monologue for the audition. The Frog Princess will include roles for non-singers and non-dancers as well as for those who want to sing and dance. The show will be crafted specifically for students who audition, and we take great care to make sure we have a place for all. Each child’s individual talents are used to create a production uniquely theirs.
Join Sally, her animal friends, and the school of Olympus Academy as they navigate the ups and downs of fitting in. Classes are open to young people in grades 1 to eight. Kringlie said “if people are unable to pay, contact us, and something can be worked out,” Kringlie said.
Auditions are the first day of class, and each child’s individual talents are used to create a production that is uniquely theirs. Children must commit to the full session. “The Frog Princess” is directed by Jason Paul Smith.
