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: The two scene cuttings provided from the show and one of the two songs provided from the show that best fits your musical range.
