Show Synopsis

“In an effort to escape the craziness and pressures of Hollywood, Myra Marlowe rents a house in the tiny town of Beaver Haven, Vermont. She is ready to settle down, grow tomatoes, write her biography and live among normal people. She is not prepared to deal with the nosy and ever present neighbors. To scare them away, she invents a crazy, homicidal sister, really Myra in a fright wig… then the fun begins.”

    1. Aly, it is open auditions. You just need to show up between 6:30pm am 9pm ready with a song and your audition form.

  1. My son is a Freshman at Fairbanks High School and is interested in trying out. He was a part of the Musical last year as an extra, however he did not have to try out. Can you tell me what type of song he would be preparing for the audition?

    1. Hello Jennifer! Really any type of song that would showcase his voice (not beyond his range). A good tip is to find something that is close to the style of the show that is being done. I hope that makes sense. You can find all sorts of Karaoke backing tracks that he could sing along with as well online. If you have more questions please let us know!

  2. We want to let you all know that we are going to proceed with auditions tonight as planned. If by chance, we end up having a level 2 snow emergency (or worse) we will re-schedule our auditions for Thursday night.

    We also understand that some of you may not feel safe about driving tonight and we want to offer to you the opportunity to audition, by special arrangement, on Thursday night at 6:30. Please contact us to make these arrangements.
