Auditions set for 'Pirates of Penzance'

Lamplighter Community Theatre will hold auditions for Gilbert and Sullivan's light, comic opera "Pirates of Penzance" Monday through Thursday, May 24-27, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at Centennial Auditorium in Staples.

"This is one of Gilbert and Sullivan's most famous operas, full of pirates, sword fights, Keystone cops, lovely daughters and, of course, memorable music," said Brenda Halvorson, member of the LCT board. High schoolers through adults can audition for primary parts and chorus parts. Everyone must prepare a piece of music for the auditions.

Anyone who cannot make the audition times can contact Pam Quance Harris to set an appointment. She'll also answer questions about the auditions and the production. Call her at (218) 316-7224 or e-mail

Performances are tentatively set for mid to late July.
