Auditions for Rumpelstiltskin set for March 7 at the Grand Gallery Theatre


“Rumpelstiltskin,” a play loved by audiences both young and old, will be performed here March 12, using talent from local schools, produced by the Missoula Children’s Theater.

Auditioning for the various roles will be held Monday, March 7, at the Grand Gallery Theatre in Grand Coulee, from 4-6 p.m.

The play is locally sponsored by the Grand Coulee Dam PTA.

“Rumpelstiltskin” is a fairy tale that originated in Germany and was part of the collection gathered by the Brothers Grimm and published in their collection of “Children’s and Household Tales.”

Among the roles to be cast on March 7, are Rumpelstiltskin, Queen Beatrice, Clara a jester, King Whatsat, villagers, gnomes, wizards, knights, and bees.

The play will feature youngsters from kindergarten through children up to the 12th grade.

Assistant directors will also be cast to assist in rehearsals throughout the week.

Missoula Children’s Theatre provides costumes, scenery, props and makeup.

Researchers have determined that the story of Rumpelstiltskin originated some 4,000 years ago.

Presentations will be made at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m., Saturday, March 12, at the gallery on Grand Coulee’s Main Street.

Price of admission is $10 for adults, $7 for seniors and $5 for students.
