Description:

Auditions for 2022-23 season - video submissions. Seeking Equity actors. ONLY LOCAL TALENT WILL BE CONSIDERED. Please see the breakdown below. About the project: "The Night Before": Hit holiday show returns with an updated romp for 2022. There’s no place like home for the holidays. It’s snowing in sunny Florida when a group of friends and a surly house cat named Stephen Sondheim gather around the piano for a night of fun, music and games. Alternately hilarious and heartwarming, The Night Before is delightfully reminiscent of classic holiday TV specials, yet refreshingly modern in its depiction of one fabulous night with the family you choose. "Blues in the Night": The soul of the blues wails out full and strong in Blues in the Night, a scorching, Tony-nominated musical. Set in 1948 in a Chicago hotel that has seen better days, the interwoven stories of Blues in the Night evoke the struggle and humor of life, love and the dogged determination to do more than just survive. The drama reveals itself through glorious songs by Bessie Smith, Duke Ellington, Johnny Mercer, Alberta Hunter, Harold Arlen, Jimmy Cox, Ida Cox and more. "Ken Ludwig's Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery": Get your deerstalker cap on — the play’s afoot! Comedic genius Ken Ludwig transforms Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic The Hound of the Baskervilles into a murderously funny adventure. Sherlock Holmes is on the case. The male heirs of the Baskerville line are being dispatched one by one. To find their ingenious killer, Holmes and Watson must brave the desolate moors before a family curse dooms its newest heir. Join the fun and see how far from elementary the truth can be. "Oz": Preempted from our 19/20 season, this much-anticipated world-premiere musical by Theatre ’s artistic director and music director finally takes its turn as they close their 22/23 season. This original musical explores the genius of L. Frank Baum and his complicated relationship with his most famous creation, the Land of Oz. This is the story of a dreamer at the dawn of a new age who reinvented the fairy tale in a distinctly American way, painting an idealized and magical vision of a world where witches might be good, and what you’re seeking is already inside you.
