By: Desert Foothills Theater
The "Honk! Jr." audition workshop for ages 8 to 18 will be held on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 23, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with auditions on Dec. 7. Based on Hans Christian Andersen's The Ugly Duckling, "Honk! Jr." tells the story of an odd looking baby duck, Ugly, and his quest to find his mother. Soon after Ugly is born, he is seduced away by a wily Cat who wants to eat Ugly for dinner.
Performances of "Honk! Jr." are Fridays and Saturdays, Feb. 14-15 and Feb. 21-22 at 7 p.m. and Sundays, Feb. 16 and 23, 2 p.m. in the DFT's Blackbox Theater, 33606 N. 60th St., Scottsdale, 85266.
Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None" is opening Jan. 17. Christie published the world's best-selling mystery novel in 1939. "And Then There Were None" tells the story of ten people who were lured onto Indian Island by a man named U. N. Owen. Once all ten people were in the house on the island, the story picks up when someone is poisoned. Will they discover who it is or will everybody die before they can figure it out?
"And Then There Were None" plays Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m. on Jan. 17-18 and Jan. 24-25, and on Sundays at 2 p.m. on Jan. 19 and 26. Performances will be held in the DFT Blackbox Theater and tickets are $25.
"We are grateful to Phyllis and Peter Strupp, our season sponsors" says Vicki Chamoff, interim managing director of the Desert Foothills Theater.
