Audition: Jack and the Beanstalk, Zeus Entertainment

You are cordially invited to audition for Zeus Entertainment’s 3rd Christmas family musical comedy Jack and the Beanstalk.  The script is a completely new re-imagining of the classic tale and is written in true British pantomime style.  Lots of silliness and tomfoolery, cross-dressing and twists on popular songs.  Auditions are on September 10 and 11, 2014.  Here’s a brief overview of what you need to know.
