Currently in the works is our upcoming review
Musical Masters: 2017 Classic Hollywood Edition
with performances in February and rehearsals beginning in early November
We are looking for the following:
(please see the links below for audition numbers.  You may need to cut and paste them into your browser)

2-4 people who could sing one or more solos.  These people would be primarily singers and would not be required to do any choreography or real acting, but would be expected to "sell a song" so to speak.  These people would not need to come to too many rehearsals until we get down to the week of the show in February.

6-7 people who can act and move while singing for more elaborately choreographed numbers.  These people would need to rehearse usually twice a week--or perhaps some only once a week.

3 children (ages 7-10) for a few numbers.  They should be able to sing strongly but need not have trained voices.  They would have to do a bit of acting/movement, and would have to rehearse once a week.


We might also wish to produce Eugene O'Neil's drama Long Days Journey Into Night
later this season or next if we can find suitable actors.  We are particularly interested in meeting you if you see yourself in the role of Jamie the elder son.

And we are also considering a comedy-drama titled The Red-Headed Stepchild
for later for this season or next.

 This play requires 3 middle-aged women, 5 young women (age 16-25), 1 middle-aged man, 1 older man, and 2 young men ages (16-25)
