It’s back, and it’s better than ever. We’re looking for a large cast of all ages to come be a part of this hilarious original musical!

WHAT TO PREPARE
- 16-32 bars of a musical theatre piece, and bring a backtrack (CD, MP3 Player or Phone) as there will NOT be an accompanist present.
- A brief comedic monologue.
- Afterwards, you will be put with a block of people for a dance audition as well, so be prepared to move!
Callbacks will be held Sunday, October 30th, from 12:00PM until they’re finished.
Rehearsals will begin in November, and be on the evenings of Sunday, Monday, Thursday and Friday. Not every cast member will be called at every rehearsal. A projected schedule will be available at auditions.
True Villains is a typical tale of good versus evil set in a fantastical world. The difference – we get to see evil’s point of view. Follow the adventures of Sebastian, a hero-turned-villain, and a whole cast of colorful bad guys to fall in love with.
