Synopsis: When ancient Greek muses appear in 1980 Venice Beach, plucky Clio disguises herself as a roller skating Aussie named Kira to inspire street artist Sonny Malone. Delightfully self aware redo of the original movie with references to Clash of the Titans, this show has plenty of heart but does not take itself too seriously!
This Tony Award-nominated, hilarious, roller skating, musical adventure about following your dreams despite the limitations others set for you, rolls along to the original hit score composed by pop-rock legends, Jeff Lynne and John Farrar.
Xanadu is the rare musical with a big heart, an even bigger funny bone, and a tongue stuck firmly in its cheek.
Note: We are planning to use roller skates but not being able to roller skate will not disqualify you. So if you do roller skate, let us know, but don't avoid auditioning because you cannot skate. That said, Clio (Kira) spends most of the show in skates, so being able to skate will matter for that role.
Clio (Kira) (20-30s female, any ethnicity) - enthusiastic and perky, Clio is the youngest muse but is nevertheless their leader. She has the wisdom of millennia and yet love takes her by surprise. Kira also doubles as Kitty, an Andrews sisters type singer. Strong singing, acting, skating.
Sonny Malone (20-30s male any ethnicity) - pretty but not too bright, Sonny genuinely wants to make an impact. He loves building things and while he struggles with despair, he also happily embraces big ideas and big jobs. Strong acting and singing required.
Danny Maguire (60s-70s male any ethnicity) - once a bright eyed dreamer, Danny has become a bitter and cranky man due to losing his inspiration and consequently his artistic dreams many years ago. But maybe his dreams have not died just yet... Strong singer and actor.
Melpomene - (30s- 40s female, any ethnicity) - frustrated by her youngest sister’s leadership of the muses and seeming effortless success, she has decided to try a curse. Great comic timing is needed for this role.
Calliope - (30s- 40s female, any ethnicity) - enthusiastic but less likely to plot than her sister Melpomene, she is nevertheless perfectly ready to help. Great comic timing is needed for this role.
4 Muses - (20s-30s 2 male and 2 female, any ethnicity) - playing multiple characters and dancing up a storm, the muses perform with sass and panache.
4 Movers/backup singers (any age, any gender, and any ethnicity) - providing support for some of the physical and vocal needs for the show. Versatile and dynamic. Partnering experience is a plus.
