JCC Youth Theatre plans Jan. 11 auditions for spring show lineup

The J New Jewish Theatre’s Youth Theatre program will begin the spring session with auditions for its upcoming shows from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 11 at the Marilyn Fox Building, 16801 Baxter Road in Chesterfield. The Youth Theatre program offers live performances of popular musicals and stage plays for children from kindergarten through ninth grade.

The spring 2015 lineup includes “Seussical Jr.,” for grades 6-9 (final performances April 30 and May 3) and  “How to Eat Like a Child” for grades 3-5 (final performances May 7 and 10). These two older groups require auditions, although all those who try out for the productions are cast. 

Younger children in Kindergarten through second grade will be performing “Anansi and the Moss Covered Rock.” No audition is necessary for the younger age group.

To schedule an audition time or for information on registering a younger child for “Anansi and the Moss Covered Rock,” contact Youth Theatre Coordinator Laura Enstall at [email protected] or 314-442-3239.
