The Geyer Performing Arts Center said auditions for its February musical, “Disney's My Son Pinocchio,” will be held Dec. 9 from 2 to 4 p.m. and Dec. 10 from 6 to 8 p.m. Auditioners should come prepared to sing, from memory, 32 measures of a contemporary musical theater piece. Please bring sheet music in the correct key; no a cappella auditions, please. There will be a movement component to every audition and some auditioners will be asked to do a cold reading from the script. Rehearsals will begin in January, with a read through and cast list posted before Christmas. A large age-appropriate, multi-talented cast is being sought. Children of all ages are especially encouraged to audition. The show is Feb. 7-10.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
