Local Children's Auditions

We held local auditions today for boys and girls who want to be in Bye Bye Birdie, Fiddler on the Roof, and A Christmas Carol.
Thirty some showed up from surrounding cities and towns including Nappanee, of course, Wakarusa, Elkhart, Culver, Plymouth, Bremen, Syracuse, Goshen, and Argos. As usual, they and their parents (a few fathers) were very loud and chaotic in the lobby awaiting their turn on stage. When called they become meek as church mice and mostly sing in tiny voices. The stage is a frightening place. All actors start somewhere sometime, so who knows if we saw a budding Broadway star today. Just like sports there is such a fine line between stage mothers who maintain balance and those who don't. It is our job to pick the best kids for the appropriate roles, which often has less to do with talent than being right for a part. Tough lessons start early.
