The Frenzie Performance Factory is announcing auditions for its upcoming production of XANADU: THE MUSICAL!

Based on the Universal Pictures Screenplay by Richard Danus & Marc Rubel

SYNOPSIS ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

XANADU follows the journey of a magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, who descends from the heavens of Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach, California in 1980 on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first ROLLER DISCO! (Hey, it’s 1980!) But, when Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation and chaos abounds.
This hilarious, roller skating adventure (based on the Universal Pictures cult classic starring Olivia Newton John and Gene Kelly) rolls along to the original hit score which includes “Magic”, “All Over The World”, “Suddenly”, “I’m Alive”, “Evil Woman”, “Have You Never Been Mellow”, “Xanadu”, and many more.
It’s Heaven on Wheels! (Literally.)
