In the PCA Cabaret

by Michael Grady

An angel of the Lord appears to Leonard Tchernik and tells the retired father of three that God wants an enormous Holiday lights display on his roof. By building it, Len will win divine favor and capture the true spirit of Christmas. But first, he must work a different miracle: getting along with his family.

In the Studio Theater

by Neil Simon

This classis play, written in 1971, by one of the world’s most celebrated, and widely performed playwrights, still resonates today. Mel Edison has definitely had better days. The summer heat is unbearable, the air-con is on the blink, the noisy neighbors are driving him crazy, his high-stress job is about to vanish, and the television news is getting weirder by the second. Luckily Edna, his loving and supportive wife, is a beacon of hope and sanity. But not for long…! "The Prisoner of Second Avenue" is a comedy that also shows how a husband and wife can weather any storm as long they have each other’s love, support and a very big shovel.

Audition: Other Desert Cities

Directed by Parker Anderson

December 14 & 15
6:00-8:00 PM



The show depicts the Wyeth family, haunted by the suicide of their son Henry, who had been involved in violent anti-war protests during the Vietnam conflict.  Lyman and Polly Wyeth's daughter Brooke returns home in the early 21st century, after writing a memoir of her life, but before she publishes, she has a cathartic need to have her parents admit what terrible human beings they are.


Lyman Wyeth, AGE: 60-70s, the father

Polly Wyeth, AGE: 60s-70s, the mother

Brooke Wyeth, AGE: 30s-40s, the daughter

Trip Wyeth, AGE: 30s-40s, the son

Silda Grauman, AGE: 60s-70s, Polly's sister


Brooke Wyeth returns home to Palm Springs after a six-year absence to celebrate Christmas with her parents, her brother, and her aunt. Brooke announces that she is about to publish a memoir dredging up a pivotal and tragic event in the family’s history—a wound they don’t want reopened. In effect, she draws a line in the sand and dares them all to cross it. “Astutely drawn…juicy and surprising.” —NY Daily News. “Power, passion, and superbly crafted palaver stippled with blow darts of wit—this is what Baitz does best.” —NY Magazine.

This show contains content and language which may not be suitable for all ages.

Audition: The Last Five Years

Directed by Michelle Grubert

December 11 & 12, Callbacks December 13th
6:30 - 8:30 PM



The production will feature the two leads (double cast) as well as a small (acting only) ensemble. The lead roles require very experienced and dynamic singers with healthy technique and strong stamina as well as a versatile acting range. These roles are true character studies and call for actors with mature emotional awareness and willingness to do the work of building complex characters and relationships.

Once your audition form is submitted, the director will send audition materials via email.

There will be some flexible rehearsing in December (with time off for the holidays), and more intensive rehearsal will begin after the first of the year.  The show runs March 7-17.


Cathy Hiatt
Lead. Female. 20-35

Character arcs from an ambitious, fresh-faced girl in a new relationship to a woman stunned by a betrayal and a divorce that she is only beginning to understand. 

Vocal Range: F3-D#5.

Audition Songs: “Still Hurting” measures 5-57

              “A Summer in Ohio” measures 106-end

Vocal range A2-Bb4.

Audition Songs: “Movin’ Too Fast” measures 1-24

            “Nobody Needs To Know” measures 65-105


4 Actors, ages 20-35

Auditions: Improvisational


An emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of five years, the show's unconventional structure consists of Cathy, the woman, telling her story backwards while Jamie, the man, tells his story chronologically; the two characters only meet once, at their wedding in the middle of the show.

A Drama Desk winner, The Last Five Years, has been translated into a handful of languages and was named one of TIME Magazine's ten best shows of 2001. A testament to the show's longevity, and spurred by the show's regional popularity, The Last Five Years enjoyed an Off-Broadway revival at Second Stage in 2013.

This show contains content and language which may not be suitable for all ages.


7:30pm   |   Thursday, Friday, Saturday evenings   |   March 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16
