Auditions Held For Local Youth Play

Many people want at least fifteen minutes of fame, and if you're an actor between the ages of 12 and 22, then the timing is just right for you.

The Walter Anderson Players are holding auditions at the Ocean Springs Library for its youth production of "The Somewhat True Tale of Robin Hood."

This play is the classic Robin Hood tale, but it adds a few comedic twists - like fighting with mixing spoons rather than bow and arrows.

WLOX asked a few of the actors what roles they are vying for.

"I'm hoping I get Prince John because I've always felt that the villains of movies and TV shows and all that stuff have more personality than the heroes," 17-year-old Oliver Kuttner said.

"I'd like basically any large female role. Any role that I can do well. Marion probably but her lady in waiting would be fine," 16-year old Katherine Jarvis said.

"I would like to be both Robin Hood and Marion because then I could have a kissing scene with myself. I think that would be really great and it would challenge me as an actor," said 15-year old Kyle Bellinger.

Auditions will also be held Monday, June 2 at 6:30 p.m.

You can see whether these and other folks got the parts they wanted August 1 through 3 at the Jackson County Community Center.
