A heartwarming Cinderella story about a witty and winsome young woman and her mysterious benefactor, based on the treasured novel that inspired the classic 1955 film. Based on the classic novel, which inspired the 1955 movie starring Fred Astaire, Daddy Long Legs is a beloved tale in the spirit of Jane Austen, The Brontë Sisters and "Downton Abbey." Jerusha Abbott is the "Oldest Orphan in the John Grier Home" until a mysterious benefactor decides to send her to college to be educated as a writer. Required to write him a letter once a month, she is never to know the benefactor's identity – so she invents one for him: Daddy Long Legs. Although she knows that he will never respond to her letters, she grows more and more fond of this elusive and kindly "old" gentleman. But another relationship soon begins to develop in Jerusha's life. Jervis Pendleton is the well-do-do, "youngish" uncle of one of Jerusha's roommates, who introduces her to a world of literature, travel and adventure. Through her correspondence with Daddy Long Legs and her growing intimacy with Jervis, Jerusha's letters chronicle her emergence as a delightfully independent "New American Woman." Yet, there is one startling fact that Jerusha has yet to uncover – a fact that will change her life forever.

Audition Information

Those auditioning should bring a musical theatre song (or any song they are comfortable with), 16-32 bars or one minute in length. Bring an accompaniment with CD or iPod to sing with. You may also sing acapella if needed.

Please note:
We are casting four actors for this show, two females and two males. We are looking to double cast the roles with teens ages 16-19 and adults ages 20 and up. The adult female role of Jerusha has already been cast and we are looking for an adult male to play Jervis (ages 20 and up), as well as a teen Jerusha and teen Jervis. If you are between the ages of 16-18, we also recommend that you audition for Music Man Jr. since there are just two teen roles available for Daddy Long Legs. Please direct any questions to Jessica Kishbaugh, Stage Manager at mtajessy@gmail.com

There's trouble in River City when a fast-talking salesman gets his heart stolen by the town librarian in this adaptation of the Tony Award-winning Broadway classic. Based on Meredith Willson's six-time-Tony-Award-winning musical comedy, The Music Man JR. is a story filled with wit, warmth and good old-fashioned romance.

Master showman Harold Hill is in town and he's got "seventy-six trombones" in tow. Can upright, uptight Marian, the town librarian, resist his powerful allure? The story follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys' band he vows to organize. The catch? He doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, whose belief in Harold's power just might help him succeed in the end in spite of himself.
