Got the acting bug? There is no shortage of opportunities to flex your acting muscles in South Texas. I noticed just the other day that the Gonzales theatre group held auditions for "The Wizard Of Oz". I understand they are still trying to fill some roles. But I digress.

Now the Shiner Gaslight Theatre will hold two days of auditions for "Treasure Island."  Auditions will be at 3 p.m on Sunday, May 6, and at 7 p.m. Monday, May 7, according to the Victoria Advocate.  The theater is located at the corner of Seventh Street and Avenue D in Shiner.

This is a play about piracy, treachery and mayhem on the tropical seas.  Eleven parts will be cast from ages seventh grade to adults. Lights, sound people, stage manager and backstage crew are also needed. For more information, visit
