Little Radical Theatrics, Inc. (LRT) will be hosting OPEN AUDITIONS for its Spring 2013 production, the Outer Critics Circle and Drama Desk Award-winning "riotous 90 minutes of belly laughs", XANADU: THE MUSICAL!

*Open to ages 18+ and all ethnicities strongly encouraged to audition* 

"HEAVEN ON WHEELS, AND IN LEG WARMERS!" 
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!
