NEW! Sign up for an audition slot online, using signupgenius.
Jeff and Hunter, two self-confessed nobodies in New York, make a pact: They will write an original musical and submit it to a festival. The only catch? The deadline is in three weeks! They gather their two actress friends, Susan and Heidi, and their accompanist and music director, Larry, on the keys. With the full team assembled, Jeff and Hunter hit another roadblock-- what should they write about? Jeff and Hunter decide to follow the old adage, “write what you know,” and set off on a unique musical adventure: writing a musical about writing a musical. As the deadline looms, insecurities creep in and jealousies flare. Will the team succeed with their musical? Could it even win a Tony?! In this intelligent, playful, lovable new musical, the audience is treated to an inside look at the tough work of being a creative artist. Frequently hilarious, occasionally heartbreaking, and thoroughly inspiring, [title of show] is a love story celebrating individuality and creativity.
Audition dates are Tuesday, March 26 and Wednesday, March 27 from 7-10pm. Callbacks and Dance call will be on Thursday, March 28, with time TBA. Auditioners should prepare two contrasting musical selections, one of which must be from a contemporary stage musical. Actors are expected to bring sheet music or recorded accompaniment (no vocals) on their device, which can connect through bluetooth or aux cord.
Performances are May 31-June 16, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm at the Red Curtain Arts Center at 9315 State Ave, Suite J in Marysville, in the Goodwill shopping center (entrance in back).

Red Curtain encourages non-traditional casting in all of our shows, and supports color-conscious and gender blind casting where appropriate and permitted by the publisher/playwright. All roles are available, and ages listed reflect the ages of the characters, not the ages of the actors.
*Jeff: Jeff is the show's composer, a Broadway enthusiast who especially likes obscure musicals and collects Playbills from shows that ran 50 shows or less. Vocal Range: G below middle C - top B. Baritonish.
Hunter writes the book for the musical; dreams about making it to Broadway and one day winning a Tony Award. Vocal Range: G below middle C - top B. Also baritonish.
Heidi is an actress, and out of the four friends has the most Broadway experience (featured in a number of ensembles and understudying lead roles); the ‘new girl’ of the group, having only worked with Jeff previously. Vocal Range: F below middle C - top G (above stave). A soprano with a bit of belt.
Susan is quirky and kooky; a ‘Down Town’ artist who portrays the reality for many in the performing arts industry, maintaining a day job to support her artistic endeavors; has some doubts about her singing ability and is at first reluctant about being friends with the new girl, Heidi. Vocal Range: F below middle C - top G (above stave). A mezzo with a belt.
All characters should appear to be in the same general age range, somewhere between 25 and 40.
