SHERBURNE – The Sherburne Music Theater Society (SMTS) is excited to announce an open house at 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 26 in the Sherburne-Earlville High School auditorium and lobby. The open house will last for an hour and will have fun memorabilia on display to provide visitors with an understanding of SMTS' history. Society members will be present so visitors can better conceptualize technical theater, stage makeup, costumes and the art of performance. Visitors will also be given a tour of the S-E stage.
Following the open house is an open audition for the musical production, 'Free to Be... You and Me.’ The audition will be open from 4 to 6 p.m. on April 26 and another audition will be held from 3 to 4 p.m. on Monday, April 28.
Rick Thormahlen is Director of the musical and has taught English and theater at Sherburne-Earlville. His combined experience of directing the S-E Drama Club and work with SMTS has resulted in approximately 50 productions to his name.
“We're looking forward to it (the musical),” he said. “We've been talking about doing it for four years.”
