THATCHER, AZ — Auditions for Eastern Arizona College’s Children’s Theatre will be held on Thursday, November 1 and Friday, November 2 from 4:30-5:30 p.m. in the Gherald L. Hoopes Jr. Activities Center-Lee Little Theatre. The production will be Babes in Toyland.

All children between the ages of 4 and 10 are encouraged to audition. Students should come to auditions prepared to sing either a cappella or bring their own accompanist. A piano will be available. Everyone who auditions will receive a part.

“This Christmas-time classic has entertained generations of children since its creation in 1903,” says the play’s director, Penny Whetten. “The show brings Little Boy Blue, Simple Simon and a host of other fairytale and nursery rhyme characters to life in the magical world of Toyland.”

There is a $15 fee for all children involved. Questions about Babes in Toyland can be directed to Whetten at 428-7922.
