Audition Description

When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world's very first musical. But amidst the scandalous excitement of opening night, the Bottom Brothers realize that reaching the top means being true to thine own self, and all that jazz.

Within 2 weeks if signing up I GOT A ROLE IN AN UPCOMING INDEPENDENT FILM!!!
