McLaughlin Theatre Company will hold auditions for young actors for their summer musical production “Smile,” during the first week of April.

Auditions are open to any child age six and older, teen, or adult looking to add some fun to their summer or experience to their resume.  Actors will perform one minute of a Broadway song that they have prepared beforehand, bringing along either a CD or sheet music.  There is no monolog preparation required.

“Smile” is a touching and satiric musical by the creators of "Little Shop of Horrors," "A Chorus Line" and "They're Playing Our Song." It follows the intrigue and exploits on stage and behind-the-scenes as a town plays host to the Young American Miss Pageant. 

Characters range from Gina Minelli, a laid back and drama-free surfer girl who is a contestant, to Heidi Anderson, a contestant from Anaheim who is obsessed with Disneyland, and brags about all the movie stars she lives near.
