Oct. 17-18, 19-20 — RUTLAND — Rutland Youth Theatre presents “Stuart Little” on Oct. 17 and 18. Produced by Saskia Hagen Groom and guest directed by Nancy Manney, it is the endearing classic about a mouse named Stuart Little who is born into an ordinary New York family. The many adventures—both big and small—of Stuart Little are brought vividly to life in this story theatre presentation. The acting ensemble plays many human and animal roles in a series of delightful scenes that make up the marvelous maneuverings of a mild-mannered mouse trying to survive in a “real people’s world.” Show times are Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. and Oct. 18 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at Rutland Intermediate School Theatre in Rutland. Tickets are $6 children/seniors $8 for adults.
On Oct. 19 and 20, Rutland Youth Theatre will hold open auditions for “Shrek – The Musical,” the full Broadway show with live orchestra. Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, “Shrek” is an irreverently fun show for the whole family. Audition times are Oct. 19 from 3-6 p.m. and Oct. 20 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at Courcelle Building, 16 North Street Extension, Rutland. Show times are Dec. 19 and 20 at the Paramount Theatre in Rutland. Grades K-12 may audition; choose one audition only.
