Seeking Men for 4 major roles

This summer Lube is the word as we tell the story of what happens to the Grease gang 20 years later. Come be a part of this 20 year high school reunion where things didn’t turn out the way anyone would have expected. The show takes the idea of Grease and localizes it – creating characters that are even bigger and bolder than the originals – and it’s set in the South Shore for even more comic fodder! Set in the late 70’s, the music is a blend of 50’s doo-wap, disco and funk. The book is broad comedy with a story line about finding your true self, overcoming heartbreak, and finding joy in moving on. We are seeking men and women to be a part of this original cast for the world premiere of Lube. If you are funny and can sing, we’d love to see you. We are in particular need of men.

Please forward this notice to anyone who might be interested.
