Audition Preparation

The story of this musical is an interwoven telling of two parallel lifetimes–where the same characters appear in both storylines, with only subtle and nuanced differences. It is also a very ‘real-life’ story, not a sugar-coated rendition of one. We are looking for actor-singers that bring a genuine honesty and vulnerability to their acting and singing.

All races and ethnicities are encouraged to audition. The Director is committed to equity, diversity and inclusion in the casting and therefore encourages actors of diverse backgrounds and underrepresented groups to audition.

Please prepare: One minute dramatic contemporary monologue and sixteen bars of a musical theatre piece. An accompanist will be provided.

Please bring resume with headshot and sheet music.

Callbacks will be readings from the script, songs from the score, and a dance call.

IMPORTANT: Please fill out our standard audition form here, print and bring to the audition.
