Auditions, vampires and beasts

  Disney is the NutraSweet of Broadway — and apparently, Las Vegas community theater. Two beauties and two beasts in four months? Brace for more Mouse House sugar when “Beauty and the Beast” — already performed in June at Spring Mountain Ranch State Park — is revived as the same production, with the same director, in October. Phil Shelburne, who guided the first one by his PS Productions troupe, is also helming the fall version by Signature Productions in Summerlin.
  If you missed performing in the first one, here’s another opportunity to play a teapot or a torch. “B&B” auditions are set for this Saturday and Monday, by appointment only. Interested thespians should send a headshot and resume to artistic director Leslie Fotheringham at leslie_fotheringham@yahoo.com.
  Also on the audition circuit, the College of Southern Nevada is holding open tryouts for the musical “Shenandoah” at 7 p.m. Aug. 26-27, with callbacks — including cold readings from the script — on Aug. 28 at the campus at 3200 E. Cheyenne Ave. For more info, call Doug Baker at 682-4894.
  CSN also announced a two-day run for a “staged reading concert” of “Dracula” Oct. 18-19 as a benefit for the college’s Performing Arts Center and Family Promise of Las Vegas. The piece was composed by Richard Oberacker, conductor of “Ka,” and features a 15-piece orchestra and 25 performers, all of them from shows on the Strip. Tix are 30 and 50 bucks and you can order them through the box office at 651-5483 or www.FamilyPromiseLVTickets.com.
  That’s “Dracula,” folks. Not to be confused with the Onyx Theatre’s upcoming “Dragula.”  One’s a vampire. The other’s just vamping.
