Auditions

Gemini Theater Company is holding auditions for it’s Classic Children’s Season holiday production “Beauty & the Beast Holiday.” This is an original, interactive musical written by Dennis Palko and Lani Cerveris-Cataldi featuring original music by Lani Cerveris-Cataldi.

Actors should prepare 1 – 2 minutes of song to sing a capella, or audio equipment will be available to play music from a digital or CD source. Cold readings from the script will follow. All roles are high-energy, character roles and this musical is a comedy.
