AUDITIONS FOR SOMEWHERE BETWEEN
VASHON REPERTORY THEATER
About the project and the company
Vashon Repertory Theatre seeks union and non-union actors for the Summer 2022 world premiere production of Somewhere Between, a new musical.
Self-tape audition is due by Wednesday, March 9 at 5:00pm.
Benjamin is coming of age—ten years late! While the small town dreamer tinkers on a motorbike and a vague plan to see the world, his long-time sweetheart urges him towards marriage, and his influential father lines him up a dream job. Ben struggles to decide which way to go, while worried his biggest decisions are being impacted by his cyclothymic mood swings. Pressure mounts when a charismatic stranger appears, and his dad’s political ambitions expose old resentments and new financial strains. SOMEWHERE BETWEEN is about blazing your own trail in life, while dodging the path your loved ones want to put you on.
The world of SOMEWHERE BETWEEN should reflect the racial diversity of present day United States. Actors of all races and ethnicities are encouraged to audition for all roles. See breakdown later in this posting.
