Producing theatre requires the talent and hard work of many dedicated people on stage and behind the scenes. We can't mount our shows without performers, stage managers, directors, lighting designers, choreographers, and more! Consider joining us at Big Noise Theatre! Opportunities for performers and production staff are listed below.
9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL
February 12 and 14, 7pm-10pm; Callbacks February 17
Big Noise Theatre announces auditions for 9 TO 5 THE MUSICAL! Three unlikely friends take control of their office and learn there is nothing they can't do, even in a man's world. Set in the late 1970s, this hilarious story of friendship and revenge in the Rolodex era is outrageous, thought-provoking and even a little romantic.
Pushed to the boiling point, three female coworkers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. In a hilarious turn of events, Violet, Judy and Doralee live out their wildest fantasy – giving their boss the boot! While Hart remains "otherwise engaged," the women give their workplace a dream makeover, taking control of the company that had always kept them down. Hey, a girl can scheme, can't she?
