THE WINTER’S TALE

A sad tale’s best for winter…

In a world where a mad king reigns supreme, one steadfast woman authors a plan to restore elemental harmony to her world.

THE FULL MONTY’s message goes much deeper than shedding ones clothes. It is a beautiful, heartwarming story about human vulnerability and the power to rise above. It is about love and tenacious spirit. It is about the fear of full disclosure and the ability to conquer that fear. These men, who have lost their jobs, their loves and for one, nearly his life, bond together and realize their importance and full potential as human beings. 

Director Wendy Mirto, Musical Director Denise Wisneski, Asst. Musical Director Clem Mirto, Choreographer Renee Schulz, and Producer Cathy Stratoti are looking for a talented cast of 21 performers for this very popular rock musical.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script, vocal audition-16 bars of music provided by the person auditioning, and dance/movement. Be sure to wear comfortable clothes and PLEASE keep them on for auditions! Also, please do not audition for this rock musical with a Rogers and Hammerstein piece.
