In preparation for its first summer dinner theatre, LSU Alexandria is holding auditions June 10-12 for 'The Apple Tree.' This delightful musical will run July 23-25 and July 29-Aug 1 in the Black Box Theatre in the Kress Building. Auditions are open to the public and will include both singing and general auditions. All auditions will be held in the Physical Education Building, Room 205 on the campus.

Singing auditions will be held on Thursday, June 10 from 6 until 8:30 p.m. Participants should bring sheet music or taped accompaniment. For singers not able to attend auditions on June 10th, you may bring taped accompaniment to one of the general auditions.

General auditions to include cold reading from the script, dance and improvisation will be held Friday, June 11 from 1-3 p.m. and Saturday, June 12 from 10 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. The play will include chorus roles for singers and dancers.

'The Apple Tree,' a collection of three short musicals, was written by the creators of the Broadway classic 'Fiddler of the Roof,' Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick. The LSU Alexandria production will include two bites out of the musical: 'The Diary of Adam and Eve' (based on Mark Twain's hilarious and touching retelling of the Garden of Eden story) and 'Passionella' (a modern Cinderella tale from humorist Jules Feiffer.)
