Little Theatre brings back favorite: ‘Beehive’ auditions set next week

Little Theatre doesn’t bring many shows back for a revival, and when they do, it’s because the show was a huge hit or there are a lot of requests to see it again.  And that’s exactly the case with “BEEHIVE:  The 60’s Rock Musical!”  It’s coming back, and auditions are just around the corner.  Monday and Tuesday, Jan. 13 and 14, auditions will be held at The Prizery at 6:30.
