AUDITION ANNOUNCEMENT: https://laspositascollege.edu/theater/auditions.php

When the locals in a small Russian hamlet learn that an undercover government inspector is coming for a surprise visit, an unfortunate case of mistaken identity sends the whole village spiraling into a world of panic and greed. Witty, smart and wildly satirical, this timely and spirited adaptation of Nikolai Gogol’s classic play exposes the corruption of a provincial town with biting hilarity, lampooning people while guiding them with a warm heart and open mind.

"…a comedy of galumphing, harrumphing hilarity. One part farce, one part slapstick, with a dash of musical theater, this naughty, frothy play is wholly entertaining…[A] clever, fearless script…[The] characters feel contemporary in a show where official ignorance and incompetence are compounded by corruption and hubris.” —Star Tribune (Minneapolis, MN).

Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people while guiding them with a warm heart and open mind.

Open to anyone over the age of 15 - We strongly believe that diversity of all kinds contributes to a broader theatrical perspective and we warmly encourage applicants from the many diverse communities to audition!

“Footloose is an exuberant entertainment, bursting to life with music, romance and dance.” – L.A. Movie Gazette

"As we rehearse, I’m realizing how so many elements come together to create the magic that Xanadu is. Roller skating in itself is exhilarating for me, but singing on skates is something I’ve never known till now and it’s truly wondrous, as much as a challenge it can be sometimes. I’m learning a lot through this process, especially with the support of the artistic team and cast, and I’m so excited to share what it means to be in Xanadu." - Madi Charles (Kira)
