Auditions for Theatre in the Park’s 2008 summer season of musicals have been set for early March. All of this year’s auditions will take place at the Leawood Middle School, 2410 W. 123rd St., Leawood.
Auditions for ages seven through adult will take place on a first-come, first served basis from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 1 and Sunday, March 2. The production teams will break for approximately an hour each day for lunch.

More information on auditions, including specific requirements for vocal and dance auditions, is also available on the website.
