AUBURN – Community Little Theatre will hold auditions for its production of “Miss Saigon” at 10 a.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday, May 16-17, at Great Falls Performing Arts Center.
“Miss Saigon” is a classic love story brought up to date in a theatrical spectacle. In the turmoil of the Vietnam War, an American soldier and a Vietnamese girl fall in love, only to be separated during the fall of Saigon. Their struggle to find each other over the ensuing years ends in tragedy for her and a fighting chance for the child he never knew he had.
The show is directed by Richard Martin, with musical direction by Beth Barefoot and choreography by Lacey Moyse. The show’s producer is Karen Mayo.
