Audition Description

Winner of 8 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Book and Best Score, this rollicking river adventure is based on Mark Twain’s timeless 1884 novel. The irrepressible, rebellious young Huck resists polite society and his abusive father and takes off on a raft with runaway slave Jim, encountering wild extremes of greed, bigotry, kindness and love along the way. Twain’s memorable characters are brought to vivid life – from the Widow Douglas and her stern sister to two uproariously funny con men; from Huck’s partner in crime Tom Sawyer and their rowdy gang of pals to the lovely Mary Jane Wilkes and her trusting family. Propelled by a soul-stirring score of country, pop, gospel and bluegrass music created by Roger Miller, this jaunty journey is a brilliantly theatrical celebration of pure Americana and a powerful coming-of-age story.

I was suspicious at first, you know the saying "too good to be true", but within a week I got a job for America's Hottest Mom as a judge which will air in the spring-not to mention the countless auditions that I have gone on. Recently I have done a tv spot for Dog the Bounty Hunter which will air on A&E. Thanks again, you have made my dream a reality. Thank you Explore Talent!
