Anyone who is interested is welcome to audition, Girton said. "Nothing needs to be prepared for the audition. We'll teach them what they need to know -- dancing, singing and reading."

'Funny Money,' a comedy by Ray Cooney about a mild-mannered CPA who accidentally gets the wrong briefcase -- one full of money -- will be directed by David Dahlquist and begins July 10.

'Tintypes,' a comedy directed by Joyce Matthies, will have music from the turn of the century when living was easy, times began changing and life began to bustle. It premieres at 7:30 p.m. on July 24.
