Got a young thespian at home? Oakland’s Children’s Fairyland, the nation’s oldest storybook theme park, is holding auditions this weekend for its year-round theater program. They’re looking for 30 enthusiastic kids, ages 8-10, for a gig that includes 50 hours of free professional training — acting, singing, creative movement, and ethnic music and dance — plus performances at Fairyland’s new theater, Aesop’s Playhouse, and other events. The deadline to sign up for auditions is TODAY at 5 p.m. Grab a phone and call 510-452-2259 or 510-238-6878, ext 3., to reserve a spot. The auditions themselves are Jan. 26 and 27 from 1 to 3 p.m. at Beacon Day School, 2000 Dennison Street in Oakland. (Note new address)
