Six students stuck in summer school get more excitement than they bargained for when wax figures come to life and they embark on a treasure hunt with characters such as Cleopatra, King Henry VIII, Butch Cassidy and Lizzie Borden.
Auditions are scheduled for tonight from 7 to 8, Sunday from 4 to 5 p.m. and next Thursday from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Laurel Grange, 21 Garden St., West Newbury. Performances are April 3-6.
Those interested are asked to bring a list of shows they have been in and a head shot, as well as to be prepared to perform a short song and a very short scene or monologue. People will also be required to read/act in groups.
