OPEN AUDITIONS WELCOME RECEPTION
DREAM DOLLS SILENT AUCTION
MEET THE LIVE AUCTION ARTISTS

An empty stage~~~A darkened theater~~~ The actors waiting in the wings for their moment to take the stage and give it their all. Who will make it? Who will be the lead? Who will be in the chorus?

Who will be Broadway's next star?

The answer is everyone! This Open Audition is unlike any other. Here everyone is a star like the Barbie® doll. So put on your brightest smile and comfy shoes and trod those boards to the OPEN AUDITIONS WELCOME RECEPTION. All you GUYS AND DOLLS, life is a CABARET when Barbie® doll friends get together at the GRAND HOTEL!

It's NEVER TOO LATE to come, but you will want to be there on time to check out the silent auction items. And we AIN'T MISBEHAVIN' when we say you don't want to miss meeting THE PRODUCERS of those fabulous DREAMGIRLS we will be bidding on at the Live Auction.

This is not a host/hostess event.

Barbie® doll got the part! Barbie® doll and her cast mates have been rehearsing for weeks. The scenery is painted and stored in the wings, and the costumes are all sewn and hanging in the dressing rooms. Today is the Dress Rehearsal. Everything has to be perfect, or there may not be an opening night.

Join A CHORUS LINE to the luncheon. MAMA MIA! We're on PINS AND NEEDLES to see what Mattel has in store for us, so tell Barbie® doll we're CRAZY FOR YOU at the DRESS REHEARSAL LUNCHEON!

GALA CAST PARTY
CONVENTION DOLL PRESENTATION

It's been a WICKED good week. Now whether you are BAREFOOT IN THE PARK or wearing KINKY BOOTS, do up your HAIR (use plenty of HAIRSPRAY) and slip into your fanciest costume because before we're MOVIN' OUT, we are taking over the PLAZA SUITE for the GALA CAST PARTY. Bring your cameras and autograph books. You won't want to forget this night!

In a little while the lights will go out and the curtain will fall. But even though we will miss all the fun, we won't be LES MISERABLES. We will make PROMISES, PROMISES to old and new friends to meet SAME TIME, NEXT YEAR.

We will have more than wonderful memories to take home with us...we will be singing ME AND MY GIRL when the big announcement comes to pass out the Convention Dolls! What a fabulous way to end a spectacular run!

This is a host/hostess event.
