If you are between the ages of 8 and 18 and enjoy acting, come out to Antelope Valley Indian Museum State Historic Park and audition for our annual outdoor play based on a traditional California Indian story. Rehearsals will be every Tuesday afternoon from 4 to 5 p.m. starting Tuesday, Feb. 19. Auditions will be on the first day of rehearsal. The performance will be the evening of Saturday, May 4.

The history of theater at the museum dates back to 1932. Museum founder H. A. Edwards wrote an Indian pageant, which was performed outdoors near the museum, annually from 1932 to 1935. Edwards' drama students from Lincoln High School played the main roles, and local friends and neighbors played the secondary roles. Edwards named his outdoor stage Theatre of the Standing Rocks.
