Auditions for Tom Sawyer in North Tonawanda

NORTH TONAWANDA – Auditions will continue Tuesday for the world–premiere adaptation of “Tom Sawyer,” by local playwright L. Don Swartz from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Ghostlight Theatre, 170 Schenek St.

The play is based on Mark Twain’s classic, “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer,” and the central characters, Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn and Becky Thatcher are 14 to 15 years old. Children must be at least 10 years old to audition. The play focuses on the adventure aspects of the novel and is not a children’s theater version.

Total open parts are for four women, six men, four boys and two girls, plus people to play the citizens of St. Petersburg.

Candidates must give a cold reading in a group setting.

The show dates are Feb. 11 to 21. Rehearsals start immediately, three nights a week.
