The Scene for April 30, 2010

Well, the April that opened with The Twelve on April Fools' day leaves us at the threshold of a May that starts with a lot of stuff for kids.  From Family Fun Day in Fort Lauderdale to the National Children's Theatre Festival in Coral Gables, plays for children will be playing all over South Florida.  And we won't see any reviews of any of them in any of our region's newspapers.

Registration info is up at the Florida Professional Theatres Association website.  This year's FPTA mass auditions are scheduled for May 23-24 at the Riverside Theatre in Vero Beach.  Registration forms and workshop schedules are available HERE.  This is a great chance to be seen by theatres across the entire state, and it's an excellent networking opportunity.
