Launch a song-and-dance career (Feb. 21 and 22)

February 17, 2009

Today’s post isn’t exactly an event, in that it’s not open for public viewing, but it is an opportunity for kids of all ages and experience levels to have a little fun, courtesy of The Muny. This weekend the beloved St. Louis summertime institution is holding its open auditions for “Muny Kids,” children between 7 and 18 who perform with professionals in the company’s shows.

On Saturday (Feb. 21), kids between 7 and 13 can audition for roles in Annie and The Music Man. On Sunday (Feb. 22), teens 14 to 18 can try out for 42nd Street, Godspell and Hairspray. All auditions are at Saint Louis University High, with free (validated) parking at the Saint Louis Science Center lot.  I’ve heard recently that the Science Center’s been jam-packed on weekends and holidays, so arrive early to get a spot.  And stay late to check out the new exhibits (what the heck, you’re already blowing off Mardi Gras for your kids’ sake, right?)

There are many details, including age-appropriate arrival times, on The Muny’s homepage. Be sure to call 314.361.1900 in advance, as posted times are subject to change. You’d hate to miss your young star’s change to be a Muny Kid!
