STRANGE, a Tony award-winning musical, is a genre-bending exploration of an artist’s journey to find life’s truths. The story follows Youth, a young
Black man raised in the idyllic hills of California, as he passes through

the people he meets because of it. Throughout his journey for “the real,”
he gains so much, but is what he gives up too much? Will the ends justify
the means? Will everything be alright?

This audition will be broken into 3 segments, singing, dancing and acting,
each taking place on separate days. In order to be cast, you will need to
prepare for and perform each one of the parts, requiring you to be present
for a portion of all 3 days. Please note, you must sign up for each day’s
activity.

If you are unable to attend one of these sessions, we ask that you sign up
