---- — Mosaic sets auditions for holiday show

MANKATO — Mankato Mosaic Theatre Company will have auditions 4-6 p.m. Sunday and 7-8 p.m. Monday at Twin Rivers Council for the Arts.

Auditions are for Mosaic's upcoming "Blues B4 The Holidays" family show.

There are parts for six women and four men for the short plays: "Squishy's Christmas," "Mock Duck" and "A Tale of Two Ornaments." There are also parts for people who want to be in skits or in a dance routine.

Auditions are done in a group setting, and are open to those with no acting experience as well as veteran actors. Because this is a family show, high school students are also encouraged to audition.

Performances will be Nov. 16 and Nov. 21-23, including a Parents' Night Out show on Nov. 23 with free child care for kids 6 months to 5 years old at the YMCA.
