The Board of Directors of Vermillion Community Theatre (VCT) has scheduled two events for the summer of 2012.
There will be a summer children's workshop June 11-15 for 50 young actors K-5 with a few openings for older assistant directors. Registration will be $30 through Vermillion Parks and Recreation on May 2. There are a limited number of scholarships available.
The workshop is held in cooperation with Dakota Players and runs 1-5 every afternoon at the Vermillion High School Performing Arts Center culminating in a performance of "Image Nation" on Friday, June 15 at 7 p.m.
The performance will be a hot dog dinner theatre for actors and the audience, but show tickets may be purchased separately.
The VCT Main Stage production will be the popular Broadway musical, "Annie." Performances will be July 20-23 at the Vermillion High School Performing Arts Center. The show will be directed by Jen Dickenson with musical direction by Anthony Burbach.
Last year had separate shows for adult and young actors, but "Annie" has parts for all ages. Auditions will be May 20 from 4-6 p.m. and May 21 from 6-8 p.m.
In addition to actors, assistance is needed with costumes, sets and running crew. A dog trainer has already been found, but if dog owners think they have the perfect "Sandy," they may contact the board.
Volunteers can check the Web site or contact Sandy Dickenson at (605) 624-6670.
