AUDITIONS for a workshop production of MIRACLE OF THE WHITE LEAVES: THE MUSICAL on September 8 & 9 at 6:30pm in the Amelia Center Theatre Lab at Gulf Coast State College.

Actors should prepare a 90 second monologue, 16 bars of a song and be prepared for a brief physical improvisation. Bring sheet music, an accompaniment track or your own instrument. Non-students and actors from the community are encouraged to audition.

Rehearsals begin September 29 and will be held Monday-Friday evenings from 6:30pm to 9:30pm. This workshop production will be held October 30 at The Marina Civic Center for a select audience in preparation for the world premiere in April 2015. There will be separate auditions for the April production in early 2015. This new musical was created during the 2014 GCSC Summer Theatre Project and is based on the novel, Miracle of the White Leaves by Stephen W. Dunnivant and Gina Dunnivant.
