Twinderella. Tennessee Valley Theatre in Spring City will hold auditions for Twinderella,
the Musical on Monday and Tuesday March 11 and 12, from 3 to 6pm.
Performance dates are May 20-23.
Did you know that Cinderella has a long lost twin brother named Bob living in the same kingdom, with his own wicked stepfamily? Separated since birth, the two have enlisted the services of the Fairy Godmother, “The Godfather”, and two enchanted gerbils to help them as Cinderella plots to attend the ball, and Bob sets his sights on the all-kingdom baseball game. When the two strangers disappear at midnight after Cinderella hits a game-winning homerun, the search is on to find the feet that fit the glass slipper and the muddy cleat! This hilarious musical send-up of “Cinderella” will delight actors and audiences alike.
Roles are available for male and female actors from age 10 years old and up, including adults. (Not all roles require solo-level singing ability.) For further information call, or text, director Karen Slikker at 423-834-2499 or e-mail at ArtWorks@volstate.net. http://ow.ly/i/1AyFC

The Story of Jack and John Tennessee Valley Theatre in Spring City will present the premier of The Story of Jack and John on February 22-24. Cost is $10. Performances are Friday and Saturday at 7:30 PM and Sunday at 2 PM. Reservations can be made by calling (423) 365-PLAY or online at ww.tennesseevalleytheatre.com.
As Jack and John tell the story of John and Jack on a quest to save their grandmother they discover they may not be in control of their own story. During this family friendly journey Jack and John (or is it John and Jack?) cross paths
with a host of quintessential story land characters that prove to be a little atypical. Somewhere amidst the swirl of being tricked by a fool, swindled by royalty, and haggled by dwarves Jack and John lose their way. Storytelling has become their lives, literally. Now everything from their beginning, which they can’t quite remember, to their ending, which they can’t quite reach, to saving their grandmother, teeters on the smallest of things.
The two-man play was written by and features Quentin McCuiston and Aaron Gaines. McCuiston is a Rhea County native currently based in New York City. Gaines is an actor/playwright living in New York City.
