Masquers Playhouse is pleased to announce auditions for its upcoming production of:
WHAT WOMEN WANT
Music by Evan Alparone
Book and lyrics by Victoria Siegel
Directed by Kim Bromley
Summary: The Canterbury Tales and the legend of Camelot intertwine with today’s internet culture in this post-pandemic story-within-a-story telling of the marriage of Sir Gawain. All these stories culminate in an acknowledgment of what women most desire. One of Geoffrey Chaucer’s most beloved characters, The Wife of Bath narrates this tale both in dialogue and song, aided by an ensemble of various modern-day students, the pilgrims of The Canterbury Tales, and the knights and ladies of the Round Table.
Roles: 12 -15 characters – All ages, genders, and ethnicities. Non-AEA
Auditions: Prepare a 1-minute story; read from a fairytale or children’s book or tell a story of your own with a “Once upon a time…” vibe. Also, prepare a song: 34 bars, something upbeat and fun.
