The Broadway Hit Musical of Xanadu "Heaven on Wheels, and in Leg Warmers!" is scheduled to open in January 2018.
Auditions will begin at 5:00 pm on Saturday, July 15 at Act II Entertainment.
A musical spoof of the cult classic movie of the same name, XANADU: THE MUSICAL 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 create the greatest artistic achievement of all time: a roller-disco. 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 romp about following your dreams despite the limitations others set for you, rolls along to the original hit score composed by pop-rock legends Jeff Lynne and John Farrar, interwoven by a moving, electrifying book of endless fun penned by one of Broadway's master storytellers, Douglas Carter Beane. You'll want to keep the music in your head, and Xanadu in your heart, forever!
