SUZY:  SUZY (SIMPSON) STEVENS: Suzy is happy-go-lucky, a little giddy, a little silly, and just a little pregnant. She’s always willing to go along with anyone and anything, and she seems to giggle at just about anything. She finds great pleasure in everything she does; the sillier it is, the more fun she finds it.
(Mezzo Alto with big belt.)


Winter Wonderettes: The New 60s Christmas Musical by Roger Bean
Director: Ric Rose. 1st rehearsal: Nov. 7  Run: Nov. 28-Dec. 21

When Santa vanishes from the Harper’s Hardware Holiday Party, the Wonderettes spring into action and save the day by putting on a Christmas show. With tinsel-like shimmer and the voices of angels, this hilarious celebration of 60’s girl-groups includes dozens of holiday pop standards including "Winter Wonderland," "Jingle Bell Rock" and "Santa Clause is Coming to Town."


General Audition Information

Outside of any required EPAs (Equity Principal Auditions), we cast our season on a show-by-show (as needed) basis. We hire union (Actors' Equity Association) and non-union actors. You may submit your headshot, resume and cover letter at any time in the season. It is helpful to know what show(s) for which you'd like to be considered (refer to our current season link for show information).
