Kids, adults can be 'Los Broadway'-bound by auditioning for musical by Fifth Wall

A Hollister-based theater company has plans for a Broadway-like musical in Los Banos.

Fifth Wall Theater Project, with an assist from the Los Banos Arts Council, will hold an audition workshop for all ages at 5 p.m. June 26 at the Ted Falasco Arts Center, 1105 Fifth St. There is no fee.

" 'Los Broadway' is not like any old show, it has parts for actors, dancers, singers, musicians and more," said Robert Pagan, Fifth Wall artistic director. "The theme is Broadway and what (could) be better than show-stopping dance numbers and huge Broadway songs?"

The show has parts for both children and adults, and will be a fundraiser to benefit the Los Banos branch of the company.

Plans for more

The theater will also open a second location in Los Banos, according to a news release.

Pagan said his company has been successful in Hollister, so he's looking to branch out on the Westside of Merced County.

"Growing up, theater was very important to me and community theaters serve the community in a way many professionals theaters cannot," he said. "In community theater, dreams are started and old dreams come back."

Pagan and Fifth Wall brought "Wonderland: The Alice story" to Marks Elementary School in Dos Palos in March.
