Bountiful Elementary School and Spotlight Children's Theater are preparing for auditions for the upcoming school production of "Annie Jr."
Students in grades 3-6 are invited to register and participate, although only students in 5th and 6th grades will audition for lead character roles. There are plenty of parts for boys and girls of all ages. Students in 3-4th grades or those in 5-6th grades not wanting a lead role can register without an audition on Feb. 26th.
A parents Q&A meeting will be held after school on Wednesday, Feb. 25th at 3:30 for those parents who would like to meet the director or ask questions before auditions begin on Thursday.
