Backstage help also needed.

Ages 16 and older are welcome to audition or volunteer.

There will be musical interludes called "olios" where there can be a variety of music opportunities from country western to opera.

Auditions will be held at Canton's Unitarian Universalist Church Saturday, Dec. 9, at 2 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 10 at 5:30 p.m.

For more information, call Carole Berard at the Canton library at 315-386-3712.
