Audition Preparation

  • Please prepare a comedic or satirical song or an upbeat (preferably comedic) Broadway show tune. You are encouraged to sing a Tom Lehrer song if you know one.
  • Please provide sheet music in the proper key. An accompanist will be provided.
  • Please be prepared to move/dance (wear appropriate clothing).
  • Please be ready to do cold readings (monologue or dialogue) from the script.
  • Please bring your resume and a current headshot, and be prepared to fill out our conflict schedule for ALL dates (not just the ones that are currently planned for rehearsals and perforrmances) between June 15 and August 31, 2018.


The show consists of 5-6 performers (3 men and 2-3 women) who sing the songs and also participate in the inter-song monologues and dialogue. There is no "book" to speak of, but there are many lines, and each actor will be expected to take on a persona which will inform most of the performance.

Rehearsals (tentative)
We are still working out the rehearsal schedule which may be arranged around the schedules of the actors chosen. Our general expectation is that we will rehearse significantly on weekends (at least 5-6 hours each of those days) and have several weeknight 3 hour rehearsals as well. We will not rehearse on weekdays (before 7 PM) or Friday/Saturday nights. Principal rehearsals will be held at the Shelton Theater. Some rehearsals may be held elsewhere in San Francisco (TBD)

July 21 - August 24 at the Shelton Theater
Thursdays at 7 PM/Fridays at Midnight/Saturdays and Sundays at 3 PM
We may ask you to hold Friday and Saturday nights from 6 PM to Midnight until we open for possible additional performances.
