Auditions will be held next week in Coquitlam for Theatrix's first production of its 25th year.
Kids aged six to 13 can try out to be part of The Little Princess, a touring school production that happens in May in Tri-City schools; the call is at the Dogwood Pavilion (1655 Winslow Ave.) at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 16.
The original musical adaptation, based on the story by author Frances Hodgson Brunett, was written by Theatrix artistic director Deborah Solberg with songs from Peter Abando.
It tells the tale of Sara Crewe who is sent to boarding school by her soldier father. When he goes missing in action, the headmistress forces Sara to become a servant.
Rehearsals for the show are Saturdays from 10 to 10:30 a.m. at Dogwood, with more added after spring break. No previous acting or singing experience is necessary.
Meanwhile, Theatrix will hold drama classes for kids aged four to 13 starting later this month at Dogwood: Tiny Troupers (4 to 6 years) at 9 a.m. and Acting Mania (9 to 13 years) at 10:30 a.m.
