Silence! The Musical

Auditions: Silence! The Musical

Metropolitan Atlanta Theater Awards & OnStage Atlanta

Details

The MAT Awards is proud to announce our upcoming fundraiser production and auditions!! As many of you know, we are a tax exempt, non-profit organization that operates solely on donations and trying to keep the money we spend each year for the ceremonies to be a “wash”. These fundraising productions help us get a little ahead so we don’t have to worry about money. That being said, here is the official announcement:

OSA & The MATs are holding Non-Equity OPEN AUDITIONS for their upcoming production of SILENCE! The Musical, music & lyrics by Jon & Al Kaplan and book by Hunter BellDirected by Zip Rampy
Music Directed by Nick Silvestri
Choreographed by Zac PhelpsInfo on show and production:
This will be the regional premiere of Silence!
This musical is a parody of the book and film “The Silence of the Lambs”. This show in no way takes itself or the original content seriously. It is a dark comedy which does not shy away from anything. A great deal of adult language and content makes this show R-rated.

No stipend will be paid as this is a fundraiser.

PERFORMANCE DATES:

January 5th – 21st, 2018.  Performances Fridays & Saturdays at 8 pm and Sundays at 7 pm.

There will be one special late night show on Saturday January 13 at 11:00pm.
All performances are at OnStage Atlanta
