Port Angeles Light Opera Association will hold a workshop before auditions for its summer production of "Oklahoma!" The workshop is from 7-9:30 p.m. Friday, March 12, at the PALOA Center, 522 Mount Pleasant Road, Port Angeles.

It costs $10 and covers essentials for a successful musical theater audition: instruction from director Richard Stephens and conductor Kristin Quigley Brye followed by a practical audition experience much like the actual PALOA auditions.

Auditions for "Oklahoma!" are from 7-9 p.m. Friday, March 19, and 9 a.m.-noon Saturday, March 20, with callbacks at 1 p.m., also at the PALOA Center.

Auditioners should be prepared to sing a musical selection and can bring sheet music. A pianist will be on site. Actors should perform a prepared monologue and be ready to read scenes from the show.

A detailed list of roles, musical ranges and a plot synopsis is at www.paloa.org. Scripts are at the Port Angeles, Sequim and Peninsula College libraries. For details call 457-5630 or visit www.paloa.org.
