Fauquier Community Theatre (FCT) will host auditions for its spring youth musical, Into the Woods, Jr., for males and females age 8 to 18.

This cockeyed fairytale will come to life in the adaptation of this groundbreaking, Tony Award-winning musical. Into the Woods, Jr. features Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk), the Witch (and more favorite characters) in this lyrically rich retelling of classic Brothers Grimm fables. With unforgettable roles, Into the Woods, Jr. showcases a medium-sized ensemble of talented singers and actors. The sophisticated score has been adapted to make it more accessible to young performers.

Auditions will be held on Friday, Feb. 23 from 6:00 p. m. to 9:00 p. m. and Saturday, Feb. 24, from 12:00 p. m. to 3:00 p. m. Callbacks, by invitation only, are Sunday, Feb. 25,  from 2:00 p. m. to 4:00 p. m.
