American Psycho, The Musical
November 9-23
Rehearsals will begin soon and will be determined based on cast availability.
Please bring all known conflicts to the auditions.
There is a stipend for all cast.

A high octane nightclub musical
The sexy, ruthless and daring new musical from Duncan Sheik (Spring Awakening) and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Riverdale). Based on the electrifying novel by Bret Easton Ellis, the musical tells the story of Patrick Bateman, a young and handsome Wall Street banker with impeccable taste and unquenchable desires. Patrick and his elite group of friends spend their days in chic restaurants, exclusive clubs and designer labels. But at night, Patrick takes part in a darker indulgence, and his mask of sanity is starting to slip. Even MORE exciting? The Stray Cat production will star local superstar Toby Yatso as Patrick Bateman.

"American Psycho slays onstage! Wonderful! Graphic sex acts, torturing, stabbing, slashing, axe-wielding, snorting coke off toilets and a marvelous score" - The Associated Press
