Darien resident Carole Claps will direct the new one-act musical "Victoria and Sir Rabbit" at the St. Mary's Theatre in Stamford.
For more than two decades, Claps was a member of the Darien Arts Center, and directed the last two "Darien's Got Talent" shows, as well as other musicals for the DAC including "The Man of LaMancha," "Mack and Mable" and "Follies."
Auditions for "Victoria and Sir Rabbit," a show for the entire family, will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. Monday, March 10, in St. Mary's Hayes Hall, 566 Elm St., Stamford. Actors, singers and dancers of all ages are needed.
Leading roles include Victoria, a feisty and independent-minded women who considers Sir Rabbit her best friend and mentor; Sir Rabbit, a kind-hearted benefactor to all those in need; Mr. Kilometer, an extremely health-conscious individual who is training to win the big race; and Mr. Find, with his map always on hand, he is the one to ask for directions.
Other characters include Mr. Tree, Brown Bag, several angels (that could be played by children) who sing and dance, and Ms. Busy Body, the town gossip. The producers also are looking for people who would like to be a part of the backstage production team.
Toni DeCarlo is the choreographer and John Masi is the music director.
Show dates are May 9, 10, and 11 and are a benefit for the parish.
