Sunday, October 26, 2014 at 2:00–5:00 and 7:00–9:00

Please prepare a musical number not from the show, but in the vein of the show (contemporary musical theatre).
Please pick a song that will show off your acting ability as you sing. You may be asked to sing a second, contrasting song.

Ordinary Days is a contemporary musical written in "contemporary narrative" style (e.g. Scott Alan, Kerrigan & Lowdermilk, Goldrick & Heisler). Interlaced with humor and romance, the story follows four young adults in New York City who are searching for connection and purpose. Each one finds his/her own path – some neurotically funny and others deeply touching — but they all find ways to let go of what holds them back and embrace the beauty of each “ordinary day.”

Callbacks if necessary will be held on November 2, 2014. You will be asked to sing something from the show.
