The First Presbyterian Church Choir School will conduct auditions for children in grades 3 to 7 for roles in the upcoming musical production "Rescue in the Night."

Auditions will take place 5 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 22, at the church, 178 Oenoke Ridge, New Canaan. Children interested in auditioning should pick up a script in advance and be prepared to sing a brief solo.

The musical, written by Allen Pote with a book by Tom Long, tells the biblical story through song and dance of Daniel in the Lion's Den. It blends comedy, music and drama to teach children to always stand up for what is right. Allison Gray is stage director and choreographer for the production.

"Rescue in the Night" will be presented as part of the morning worship service at 10 a.m. Sunday, June 1.

Rehearsals begin Wednesday, Jan. 29, and continue each Wednesday, except during schools' vacation weeks.

For more information, Sean McCarthy, the church's musical director and minister of music, at 203-966-0002 or Cathy Newman, producer, at 203-972-1312.
