OPEN AUDITIONS

NON-DISCRIMINATORY CASTING 

ALL ETHNICITIES, ABILITIES, AND EXPERIENCE LEVELS WELCOME!!

This sunny and funny tale of a woman and her past unfolds on a Greek island paradise to the classic hits of ABBA. On the eve of her wedding, a daughter's quest to discover the identity of her father brings three men from her mother's past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago. It's a trip down the aisle you'll never forget!
 

Please prepare a short vocal selection (sheet music, please), come dressed to move, and be ready to read sides and do some short improv exercises!  (Résumés and headshots are welcome but not required.)

We look forward to seeing you there!!
