MARYSVILLE – Red Curtain opens its stage to two groups of young actors.

Auditions for Springboard, for ages 9-15, are set for May 7-8. All registered students are guaranteed to be cast in this year’s production of the musical fantasy “The Locket.” Monday through Thursday classes/rehearsals begin May 20, with three public performances scheduled for June 28-29. In late June, Summer Stars debuts, designed for those ages 15-19. Auditions are June 17-18. To prepare for a fully staged production of “Cabaret,” students will rehearse five evenings each week beginning June 23, with public performances Aug. 9-11.
