Last Sunday more than 90 Kansas City Ballet School students auditioned for roles in Devon Carney’s The Sleeping Beauty. There are roles for young boys and girls as pages for kings, queens and fairies, and roles for older girls in the garland waltz— a total of 30 to 40 student roles per performance.
Those selected will be notified Tuesday evening via email and will jump in with both feet, as rehearsals begin Wednesday. The Sleeping Beauty will be performed March 31-April 9 at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts.
