Ever thought about pursuing the stage? If not you, maybe you know someone who has 'auditioning for a role' on their list of life aspirations. Either way, one has to start somewhere. Luckily, we have quite a few opportunities to "break a leg" here in East Texas.

Now, I understand if you're thinking "I've never done anything like that before. I don't know the first thing about an audition." Well my friend, there's a first time for everything. Whether or not you are cast, the experience of auditioning is itself enriching and it'll make you braver. Trust me, I speak from experience. If you are cast in a role, you'll have plenty of rehearsals to get ready for the shows.

The Tyler Civic Theatre is holding auditions for actors, dancers, and singers on May 20 and May 21, at 7 p.m., for the upcoming musical show "Newsies." From what we hear, this is a big cast and they need quite a few people to fill the roles. Show dates will be Thursday thru Sunday on the weekends of July 28, Aug 1, and Aug 8.
