New Musical by Catherine Frid & Frank Horvat
We are seeking the help of experienced singers/actors to help us record demo songs to further develop a great new musical!
SKI Club is a light-hearted musical about four seniors who plot to escape their retirement home and regain control of their finances. This musical had its first reading at the Big Ideas Festival in May 2015 and we are looking to forward the development with the help of these demo recordings. You will be given an honorarium for your participation in the recording session(s).
For these recordings we are looking to cast talented musical theatre professionals (i.e., strong singers and actors) in the following role types:
three women: 60s-70s
