Musical auditions for AGAIN

Rate of Pay: 
$0.00

Join Theater Mu's world premiere of Again. This new musical by Katie Ka Vang and Melissa Li looks at how to thrive with cancer from a Hmong American perspective. Mai See and Quest are at different points in their cancer journeys, but their unlikely friendship helps Mai See better understand her relationship with her sister, Shia, and herself as she decides whether or not to restart chemotherapy. A fourth character plays ensemble roles such as Mai See's doctor and coworker. Songs range from rock to pop to ballads in this heartfelt, irreverent story. These are paid roles, but offer rates vary.
