Open auditions will be held Wednesday at 4 p.m. in the auditorium at Downey High School and Nov. 10 at 10 a.m. in the auditorium at Johansen High School.
No experience or preparation is necessary. All audition materials are provided.
Sponsored by the Stanislaus County Office of Education and Education Foundation of Stanislaus County, "HONK Jr." is the young performers' version of the Broadway show that follows the colorful characters of Hans Christian Andersen's "The Ugly Duckling."
Follow Ugly, the most unusual hatchling the duck-yard has ever seen, as he ventures away from home in search of friends and his true identity.
Production commitment includes weekends, Jan. 10 through Feb. 10. A tuition of $150 per student is in place to help defer production costs; scholarships are available.
