The Davis Musical Theatre Company’s Storybook Theatre has announced auditions for “Madeline’s Christmas,” directed by Jeni Price, with musical direction by Jenny Reuter and choreography by Jocelyn Price.

“In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines lived twelve little girls in two straight lines.” So begins the delightful story of “Madeline’s Christmas.” Audience members will join Miss Clavel, the ever-resilient Madeline, her 11 classmates and their new pet mouse as they experience the magic of Christmas.

Auditions will take place at 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 28, at the DMTC Performing Arts Center, 607 Peña Drive, with callbacks on Saturday, Oct. 29. Auditions require singing, acting and dancing at the director’s discretion, so auditioners should arrive with appropriate shoes, as well as sheet music of a song they are prepared to sing (16 to 32 bars). Do not use a song from the show.

A piano accompanist will be provided; no recorded music or a cappella singing, please. The adult roles for this production are pre-cast, and all child roles will be double-cast.

Actors ages 7 through late teens may participate. No experience is required, but selection is by audition. For those cast in the production, a $75 participation fee plus costuming costs are required as well as 25 parent volunteer hours. Scholarships are available.

Storybook Theatre rehearsals will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, starting Nov. 4. Some Saturday rehearsals are planned as well. Performances are Dec. 9-24, plus two school outreach performances on Friday, Dec. 16, and matinees the week before Christmas.
