SHOW SYNOPSIS: 

The plot is simple: a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant devise a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history, bilking their backers (all "little old ladies") out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show (the gloriously offensive "Springtime for Hitler"), hiring a director, and raising the money in efforts to pull off the perfect con. At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends!

*** Please note that this is an absurd comedy, and actors can expect adult language and themes, sexual innuendo, LGBTQ+ characters, flamboyant nazis, and ribald humor that may be offensive to some.

AUDITION WILL INCLUDE

MUSIC: Please prepare 32 bars (approximately 30 seconds to 1 minute) of a musical theater song in the style of the show. You may audition with a song from the show. A pianist and Bluetooth speaker will be provided. Please bring music in the correct key with cuts clearly marked and no tracks with backing/guided vocals or acapella auditions. If your selection exceeds the time limit, the production team may cut you off due to time constraints.

MONOLOGUE: Either prepare a 30-second comedic monologue of your choice OR read one of the monologues provided. These resources can be found by clicking here. 

DANCE: Dancing will be done at the callbacks on Saturday, April 13, by invitation only. If you have any skills like tumbling, partnering, or pointe, please be prepared to showcase these abilities at the dance call. Please bring character and tap shoes if you have them.
