ASCAP/GROW A SHOW NEW MUSICAL THEATRE WORKSHOP AUDITIONS AT LIED CENTER FOR PERFORMING ARTS
For release 8.7.19
The Lied Center for Performing Arts in Lincoln, Nebraska, in partnership with Blixt Locally Grown, is holding auditions for the fourth biennial ASCAP/Grow A Show New Musical Theatre Workshop, happening September 10th - 12th, 2019 on location at the Lied. The audition date is Monday, August 19th in the Lied Center’s Johnny Carson Theater, UNL City Campus, from 6 to 10 pm.
We currently seek actors/actresses and singers for multiple roles for the workshop. This is an exciting opportunity for those with a passion for musical theatre who are looking for the opportunity to be a part of a nationally recognized event. The nature of this workshop allows for a condensed rehearsal process, so it’s also a wonderful opportunity for singers and actors who cannot usually commit to long-term rehearsals.
Those who wish to audition should prepare 18 bars of music and a brief monologue - or auditionees can read from sides which will be provided. An accompanist will be available at the audition. There are multiple roles available (some of which are outlined in the breakdown below) and we strongly embrace diversity in our casting.

ABOUT THE ASCAP/GROW A SHOW NEW MUSICAL THEATRE WORKSHOP
The ASCAP/Grow A Show New Musical Theatre Workshop is a prestigious event that puts national focus on local talent, and places directors and casts together with emerging musical theatre writing teams to create a staged reading of an existing, pre-selected new work. A 50 minute staged reading of the new musical is then performed in front of a panel of Broadway and industry professionals for constructive feedback. The reading and feedback session occurs in front of a live audience and is the cornerstone of the three-day workshop, which focuses on supporting national and international musical theatre writing teams in a nurturing environment. This year’s panelists are Scott Frankel and Michael Korie, the renowned writing team behind Broadway successes Grey Gardens, War Paint, and Far From Heaven.
