Children, Like Miniature Do-Overs

After a certain age, chances are you will never be a singing sensation, but that's why God invented children. You might never have your name in bright lights on Broadway or be the next Judy Garland or Liza Minnelli, but that doesn't mean your kids can't. Drag your little future starlet, age 11 to 18, over to the Fort Lauderdale Children's Theatre (FLCT) at the Galleria Mall (2542B E. Sunrise Blvd., Fort Lauderdale) on Sunday to audition for the FLCT's Glee Show Choir Auditions. In addition to male and female singers, they are looking for aspiring pianists, drummers, and guitar and bass players. Relive your childhood dream vicariously through them when the kids perform numerous times from November to January. If they make the cut, they also get to perform at Walt Disney World!

For the auditions, the little hopefuls should have a one-minute song prepared that fully demonstrates their vocal abilities. They'll also be asked to sing and dance to provided numbers. The audition is free. But there are class fees; visit FLCT.org or call 954-763-6882 for more information about that. The classes are from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesdays and 5 to 8 p.m. Sundays from October 2 to January 29.

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
