Auditions for the Chattanooga Theatre Centre's Youth Theatre production of Raggedy Ann & Andy will be held Monday and Tuesday, at 4:30 p.m. at the CTC. Young actors in fourth through twelfth grades are encouraged to audition. Lizzie Chazen will direct the production.
Raggedy Ann & Andy will be performed Nov. 8-17 on the MainStage of the CTC. The play, by Patricia Thackeray, is based on the Bobs-Merrill Book.
Raggedy Ann, America's most endearing and enduring folk doll, comes to life in this production that captures the imagination of audiences of all ages, especially those in kindergarten through third grades. This free-wheeling romp combines simple, inventive staging with an action-packed plot and lively audience participation. Through it all shines the gentle, loving spirit of Raggedy Ann. The story unfolds in a special playroom where wonderful, magical events transpire. A newcomer has arrived in the playroom – a fancy French doll named Babette. But that very evening, a certain prince Leonard-the-Looney-Hearted comes riding by on his hobbyhorse and whisks her away to Looney-land. Raggedy Ann knows what she must do! She and Andy climb out the window into the "deep, deep woods" to fetch Babette back home.
