by Kathleen McCoy  |   

Male and female adult and young adult performers are being sought for a total of 10 roles. Bring one "fun" monologue and wear clothing you can move about in.

The Theatre for Young People presents "Ashlad and the Good Helpers," a Norwegian folk tale directed by Yngvil Vatn Guttu.

2-4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 24, Wendy Williamson Auditorium
6-8 p.m. Monday, Feb. 25, Wendy Williamson Auditorium

"Ashlad and the Good Helpers" is the story about a King who wants a ship that can sail "on land, on sea and in the air as well." Many try to build this supernatural ship, but only one will succeed; for it takes courage, a pure heart and a little touch of magic.

"Ashlad and the Good Helpers" is a visually stunning production with quirky characters, puppetry, and special effects, original music and a message that is true for us all.

Rehearsals begin March 2, 2008. Performances will be held at the Wendy Williamson Auditorium, April 17-27, 2008. The Ashlad story can be downloaded from: http://tfyp.uaa.alaska.edu. Design by Sheila Wyne. Large-scale puppetry by Buzzoplex. Please address any audition questions to the director, Yngvil Vatn Guttu, by contacting (907) 786-6872 or anyv@uaa.alaska.edu.
