Not Your Mom’s Musical Theater is back for 2014 with auditions for its ground-breaking concert series! The series kicks off with Something Wonderful I Missed: The Musicals of 1964, which will feature selections from the 1964 musical theater season, fifty years ago. Strong singers and emcees are sought to join the concert cast for this season. Concerts are emceed by actors and comedians who illustrate the often ridiculous and always interesting history of the songs.
The series chronicles lesser-known songs and musicals in a funny and engaging way, and concerts will be held on Feb. 16, May 25, July 13, September 28 and November 2. All are Sundays at 4 p.m. at the historic Derry Opera House in Derry.
Auditionees should prepare two memorized, contrasting selections from musical theater (32 bars max each) that show the variety of styles they are capable of, and should bring a resume and sheet music if possible. If performers are unable to attend auditions on January 6th or 7th, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a letter of interest and resume. No appointment necessary. Auditionees can audition for 1 or as many as all 5 concerts.

Due to a lower than expected turnout of zombie candidates, NYMMT was forced to cancel tonight’s Zombie Pageant. We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience.
We hope to see you at our concert next Sunday, the 8th (Something Wonderful I Missed: The Musicals of 1993), and to see you for Zombie Prom, opening September 27th.
Thank you and enjoy your weekend!
