Theater Auditions in Bridgewater, MA for Stage Play “Halley’s Comet”

Stage Reading of New Musical – HALLEY’S COMET

Location: East Bridgewater, MA

Audition / Call Type: Theater

We are excited to announce auditions for the staged reading of HALLEY’S COMET written by Cam Torres with Music by Eli Bigelow and Lyrics by Eli Bigelow and Michael C. O’Malley and directed by Gary Bigelow.


The year is 1986 and Halley’s Comet is about to pass over the town of Huntersville. The town has pulled out all the stops for this spectacular wonder. As the town prepares, a young girl spends her night reuniting her parents, a teen scrambles to keep friendships intact, and an elderly couple gets lost in the past. Through the mysticism of the comet, the park, and the night itself, moments from the past meet with the present and guide towards the future as the town embarks on a night that is truly once in a lifetime.
