‘Tom Sawyer’ Auditions Saturday

Hawaii Education of the ARTS is looking for a few kids to whitewash a fence. Auditions for its July production of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday at Kailua Church of the Nazarene, 536 Oneawa St.

Principal and ensemble roles for actors and singers age 9 and older are available. Wear comfortable, dance-appropriate clothes and be prepared to perform a Broadway song to accompaniment (bring sheet music) or a cappella.

Actors performing in Tom Sawyer also must enroll in HEARTS Summer Program (dates to be announced), which will require weekday rehearsals from 1 to 4 p.m., a weekend musical theatre camp and participation in the July 4 Kailua parade.

Megan DeBoard will direct the play, with performances set for July 17-18 and 23-25 at Paliku Theatre.
