Louisburg College Announces Open Auditions for April Production of Once Upon A Mattress, February 12-13

Norris Theatre

Louisburg College announces open auditions for its spring musical Once Upon A Mattress at the Norris Theatre on the campus of Louisburg College on Friday, February 12, and Saturday, February 13. Auditions will begin at 4:30 p.m., on Friday and 2 p.m., on Saturday. Louisburg College students, staff, and faculty, as well as community members, are invited to audition. All roles are open.

If you thought you knew the story of 'The Princess and The Pea,' you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken's love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn't the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again!

Norris Theatre Director Wally Hurst will direct the production, which will be presented on April 14, 15, 16, 22, 23, and 24, 2016. Hurst is looking for actors 16 years or age or older who can sing and dance. Bring a song to sing and be prepared to learn a dance when you come. You may also be required to read from the script. Rehearsals will begin immediately after the show is cast.

Please join us for auditions! If you need further information, please call Wally Hurst at 919-497-3429.
