We are excited to announce auditions for our spring show… “Once Upon A Mattress”

Dates: January 11 and 15, 2018
Time: 6:30pm – 9:00pm
Location: Marysville Christian Church
Address: 17000 Waldo Rd., Marysville


Come prepared with 16-32 bar vocal solo. This can be acapella, with a backing track or with sheet music (piano accompanist will be available).  You will also do some cold-reading.

Also be sure to fill out our Audition Form and bring to the auditions.


If you thought you knew the story of “The Princess and The Pea,” you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken’s love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn’t the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you’ll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.

    1. Aly, it is open auditions. You just need to show up between 6:30pm am 9pm ready with a song and your audition form.

  1. My son is a Freshman at Fairbanks High School and is interested in trying out. He was a part of the Musical last year as an extra, however he did not have to try out. Can you tell me what type of song he would be preparing for the audition?

    1. Hello Jennifer! Really any type of song that would showcase his voice (not beyond his range). A good tip is to find something that is close to the style of the show that is being done. I hope that makes sense. You can find all sorts of Karaoke backing tracks that he could sing along with as well online. If you have more questions please let us know!

  2. We want to let you all know that we are going to proceed with auditions tonight as planned. If by chance, we end up having a level 2 snow emergency (or worse) we will re-schedule our auditions for Thursday night.

    We also understand that some of you may not feel safe about driving tonight and we want to offer to you the opportunity to audition, by special arrangement, on Thursday night at 6:30. Please contact us to make these arrangements.
