The Huron Country Playhouse is pleased to announce children’s chorus auditions for its upcoming summer productions. Young performers will have the opportunity to audition for Anne of Green Gables and Snow White: The Panto. Auditions will take place on Sunday, April 19th at the Huron Country Playhouse. Advance registration is required.
Aspiring young performers, ages 9 to 15, are encouraged to attend the auditions. Dance, theatre, and singing experience are an asset and preferred. Those who plan to attend the auditions should sign up in advance and be prepared to learn the popular song “Come On Get Happy” as well as learn a short dance combination, led by our creative team.
To accommodate the demands of these grand-scale productions, and to provide opportunities for as many youth as possible, the chosen performers will be divided into teams and will perform in the children’s chorus on rotating schedules with professional actors in the lead roles.
Rehearsals for Anne of Green Gables are scheduled to begin late May and run through the beginning of June. Performances run from June 11th through June 27th.
Rehearsals for Snow White: The Panto are scheduled to begin the middle of July and run until late July. Performances run from July 29th through August 29th.

Based on the famous Canadian novel, Anne of Green Gables tells the story of Anne Shirley, a spirited red-haired orphan who manages to charm her way into the hearts of her adoptive family, Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert in Avonlea, Prince Edward Island. Featuring memorable music and a beloved story, this popular Canadian musical is a family classic you won’t want to miss. The Creative Team includes Director Max Reimer, Choreographer Lisa Stevens, and Music Director Steve Thomas. Anne of Green Gables will play at the Huron Country Playhouse from June 11th through June 27th.
Following in the footsteps of last year’s sold-out production of Peter Pan: The Panto, the classic fairy-tale of Snow White is reimagined in the Panto tradition at the Huron Country Playhouse II. Cast out by her jealous stepmother and tricked into eating a poisoned apple, the beautiful Snow White must defeat the wicked queen and find her way back to the palace – with the help of seven new friends and a handsome prince. Snow White: The Panto is filled with entertaining musical numbers, slapstick comedy, outrageous costumes, and audience participation. The Creative Team includes Director David Connolly, Choreographer Gino Berti, and Music Director Scott Christian. Snow White: The Panto will play at the Huron Country Playhouse II from July 29th through August 29th.
