Cast sought for yule opera

DRAPER — Auditions for the Draper Arts Council's production of Gian Carlo Menotti's hourlong Christmas opera "Amahl and the Night Visitors" will be held Tuesday, Oct. 16, and Thursday, Oct. 18, from 7-8:30 p.m. (or by appointment) in the Little Theatre at Juan Diego Catholic High School, 11800 S. 300 East.

A prepared musical solo is recommended but not required. A pianist will be provided, though auditioners may bring their own accompanist or a CD.

Needed are four adult soloists (bass, bass/baritone, tenor and soprano) and one child soprano (a girl or boy able to play a boy 9-12 years old), shepherds and a chorus of all ages. Dancers are also needed for the shepherds' dance.

Rehearsals will begin in late October with performance dates on Dec. 14 and 15 at 7:30 p.m. at Juan Diego Catholic High School.

To schedule an audition, contact Brian Manternach at 801-984-7630 or brianmanternach@jdchs.org.
