Calling all those longing for the stage

Humming “My Favorite Things” in the shower and that closet love you have for the musical story of the Von Trapp family could finally pay off.
The Ennis High School’s Theatre Department is holding open auditions for everyone in the community to take a crack at gaining fame on the local stage.
For the school’s first program of the year and its introductory show in the facility’s new theatre auditorium local children, EHS students and adults will all have the opportunity to show off their singing and acting skills to earn a part in “The Sound of Music.” Tonya Harper, of the Ennis High School Theatre Department, said she hopes this is the beginning of an annual event allowing everyone in the community to perform on stage together.
The Ennis Daily News is elated to hear there is enough interest in the community to allow for two theatres in town to put on shows with local actors in the cast. With the Ennis Public Theatre constantly finding its talent among local thespians and now the school district allowing for one play each year to include actors outside of the high school theatre, it is nice to know the performing arts aren’t a dying craft in Ennis.
We hope the Ennis Theatre Department is successful in finding the necessary performers to put on a community-wide production each year. It could become an event many in this area anticipate whether it is for the opportunity to perform on stage or to be an audience member enjoying a family member or friend’s performance.
