Leavenworth and Wenatchee; appointment required
The Student Prince is a classic Broadway musical featuring great songs, clever comedy, and bittersweet romance. As this show borders on operetta, we will be seeking both musical theatre performers and aspiring opera singers. There are also several enticing roles for non-singers, both comic and dramatic. This production will be presented in-the-round in a delightful German beer garden setting created inside Icicle Creek Center for the Art’s Snowy Owl Theater.
Rehearsals will be held in late August and September in Leavenworth. We feature a unique scheduling process which minimizes your car trips and rehearsal time.
