She does encourage those who audi- tion to bring a schedule of possible rehearsal con- flicts beginning February 7 through the performance dates. "The structure of this show will allow a differ- ent type of rehearsal sched- ule," said Peterson, "with the main characters needed most of the time, but the majority of the cast having a shorter and more condensed rehearsal schedule until the last,fe/:weeks ..... / "This will be a great show for those who always wanted to be in a show but couldn't commit to a stren- uous schedule," she added. In addition to actors, sing- ers and dancers needed to fill the onstage roles, many volunteers will be needed to assist with building, paint- ing and moving sets, sewing or gluing costumes, and rounding up props. Anyone who has time to share in these backstage roles is invited to come and sign up during auditions or contact Stage Manager Shelley Lange at 831-1070. Peterson is looking for Toto too!
