AUDITIONS: IT'S ONLY A PLAY
It’s opening night of Peter Austin’s new play as he anxiously awaits to see if his show is a hit. With his career on the line, he shares his big First Night with his “best” friend, a television star, his novice producer, his doped-up diva, his genius director, a lethal drama critic, and a fresh-off-the-bus coat check attendant on his first night in Manhattan.
It’s alternately raucous, ridiculous and tender—and proves that sometimes the biggest laughs happen offstage.
Auditions & callbacks will be held on both:
Thursday, October 17 from 7:00pm – 10:00pm (Rehearsal Hall)
Saturday, October 19, from 1:00pm – 5:00pm (Stage)
Additional callbacks will be held on Sunday, October 20 from 6:00pm – 10:00pm, as needed.

Sides will be provided.
All auditions, and any necessary callbacks, will be held at the Morgan-Wixson Theatre.
Street parking available.
Venice Family Clinic’s parking lot is available on weekends and on weekdays after 6 p.m. Do not park at our neighbors AAMCO/Viking Motors or SGI or you will be towed.
Please prepare two contrasting songs (16-32 bars each) from standard musical theater repertoire. Do not sing a pop/rock song. You may only be asked to sing one song, so do the “best one” first. An accompanist will be provided; bring sheet music in the key you will be singing.
You may bring pre-recorded accompaniment on CD or iPhone/Android equivalent although we would prefer that you sing with the accompanist. Be prepared to dance at the initial audition.
