We are delighted to offer you the opportunity to audition for our upcoming show, The Musical of Musicals: The Musical!
The Musical of Musicals (The Musical!) is a musical about musicals! In this hilarious satire of musical theatre, one story becomes five delightful musicals, each written in the distinctive style of a different master of the form, from Rodgers and Hammerstein to Stephen Sondheim.
The basic plot: June is an ingenue who can’t pay the rent and is threatened by her evil landlord. Will the handsome leading man come to the rescue?
The variations are: a Rodgers & Hammerstein version, set in Kansas in August, complete with a dream ballet; a Sondheim version, featuring the landlord as a tortured artistic genius who slashes the throats of his tenants in revenge for not appreciating his work; a Jerry Herman version, as a splashy star vehicle; an Andrew Lloyd Webber version, a rock musical with themes borrowed from Puccini; and a Kander & Ebb version, set in a speakeasy in Chicago.
We are currently on the hunt for the perfect performers to play the following roles:
The villain, “Jitter” – Male, the landlord figure of each musical who demands the rent be paid or another form of recompense offered.
The hero, “Billy” – Male, the leading man and romantic interest who, in the end, valiantly offers to pay the rent, whether he can or not.
The ingenue, “June” – Female, the leading lady who cannot pay her rent.
The matron, “Abby” – Female, the older woman to whom June turns for advice, always with the words “Thank you Abby, that was so helpful”.
