SHORT SYNOPSIS
Four eccentric Broadway stars are in desperate need of a new stage. So when they hear that trouble is brewing around a small-town prom, they know that it’s time to put a spotlight on the issue…and themselves. The town’s parents want to keep the high school dance on the straight and narrow—but when one student just wants to bring her girlfriend to prom, the entire town has a date with destiny. On a mission to transform lives, Broadway’s brassiest join forces with a courageous girl and the town’s citizens and the result is love that brings them all together.

 

WHAT TO PREPARE:
• Please bring a copy of your head shot and resume
• Auditions will consist of a 16-32 bar cutting from a musical theater song.
• Please bring a karaoke style track to your audition.
• Please choose a piece in the same style of the show.
