ABOUT THE SHOW: Sondheim’s Tony Award-winning musical comedy is a story of shenanigans, hijinks, and tomfoolery as a lowly servant endeavors to scheme his way to freedom in this antic romp through Rome with desperate lovers, scheming neighbors, and scandalous secrets behind every toga. The plot twists and turns with cases of mistaken identity, slamming doors and a showgirl or two. This big Roman musical will have you dancing in the aisles with the infectious energy of classic vaudeville!

 

REHEARSALS: Music rehearsals will begin on June 29. The process will carry throughout May leading up to the June opening. Rehearsals generally take place from 6:30 pm-10:00 pm Monday-Friday and some Sundays. TADA is extremely organized and will get the cast a calendar ahead of time so that actors know which dates and times they are called for at rehearsal. Your time is valuable to us! If you have conflicts during the rehearsal period, please list them on your email to casting. We can work around several however the closer to opening the more essential attendance will be. The fewer conflicts overall increases your chances of being cast.
