Special to The PREVIEW
Curtains Up Pagosa! enjoyed a record turnout of more than 70 people who showed up for auditions for the upcoming production of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.”
The musical, scheduled for Dec. 12-15 at the Pagosa Springs High School auditorium, brought out aspiring actors, young and old alike, who sought to be a part of this delightful fairytale production.
“We are absolutely thrilled at the number of new faces at this year’s auditions,” said the director, Dale Johnson. “It was an overwhelming response, and we were delighted to discover once again the huge amount of talent among us in Pagosa Springs. Of course, it made it much harder to select the small cast, but we hope that all of these folks will return to audition in the future for other productions. This large participation not only gives us a larger pool of actors to choose from, but brings fresh talent to our stage.”
