Hale Centre Theatre will hold auditions for No, No, Nanette, playing February 15, 2018 – March 31, 2018.

Performances are Wednesday through Saturday nights, with 3:00 PM Friday and Saturday matinees. All ethnicities are encouraged to audition.
No, No Nanette is a lighthearted romp showcasing the charming music of Vincent Youmans. The wacky story involves three couples sharing a cottage in Atlantic City in the midst of a blackmail scheme, with plenty of deception, romantic mishaps, and comical misunderstandings.
