audition notice - MISS MINNIE'S MELODRAMODEON! - Fountain Hills Theater - April 4, 5 & 10
Casting ages 8 - 19
Poor Miss Minnie! She has been forced to become the reluctant manager of her old father’s melodrama theater, ‘The Melodramodean’ since he has suddenly and mysteriously taken ill (He thinks he’s a chicken!) right before the judging of the grand melodrama competition! Throw in a devious and insincere leading man, a deceitful developer and a large cast of misfits and ne’er-do-wells, and poor Minnie faces her biggest challenges ever.
