Before a standing-room-only crowd at Whidbey Children’s Theater on Saturday afternoon, Whidbey Children’s Theater Artistic Director Rose Woods announced the 2012-2013 production slate, the “Season of Magic and Enchantment.”

“All of our productions across the age groups this year celebrate the enthralling worlds of fantasy and sorcery,” Woods said in a press release. “In addition, each of our shows reveals the special heart, soul and spirit of the very real people at the core of each of these magic tales and enchanted worlds.”

The announcement was made as the centerpiece of “Raise the Curtain,” an old-fashioned ice cream social, where more than 200 local families, friends and supporters of the venerable WCT gathered in the theater lobby of the Porter Building on Anthes Avenue in Langley.

“Disney’s Sleeping Beauty” runs Oct. 19 through 28. Auditions for the elementary level production directed by Rose Woods are Sept. 11.

“Willy Wonka” runs Dec. 7 through 22. Auditions for the middle school level production directed by Ken Martinez are Oct. 23.

“Disney’s Aladdin” runs March 1 through 10. Auditions for the elementary level production directed by Ken Martinez are Jan. 8.

“The Little Prince” runs April 26 through May 5. Auditions for the middle school level production directed by Ahna Dunn-Wilder are March 12.
