Auditions are Sunday, June 1 at 3 p.m. and Monday, June 2 at 6 p.m. Ages 16 and up are needed for this show.

If auditioning for a singing role, you will be expected to sing at auditions. 1980s music is encouraged. You can sing with accompaniment or a cappella.

Those auditioning for a dance role will need to learn and execute simple choreography taught at auditions.

If auditioning for a non-singing role, you will be expected to read a scene or perform a prepared monologue.

The four planned show dates are Friday, Aug. 1-Monday, Aug. 4.

Last year, Canebrake put on “Return to the Forbidden Planet,” which is a sci-fi version of William Shakespeare’s “The Tempest.” In 2012, they staged Lionel Bart’s classic “Oliver!”
