* AUDITION INFO * – First Date – CTG/WYO Co-Production

The WYO Theater and Civic Theatre Guild are excited to announce the 21-22 CTG/WYO Co-Production, First Date, a Musical Comedy by Austin Winsberg.  Directed by Kelly Miller-Smart with music direction by Amanda Patterson the show will be presented in the Mars Theater at the WYO Performing Arts & Education Center and will run April 1-3 and 7-10, 2022.

First Date is the hilarious musical comedy about that ominous “First Date” and the unexpected turns it can take.  When blind date newbie Aaron is set up with serial-dater Casey, a casual drink at a busy New York restaurant turns into a hilarious high-stakes dinner.  As the date unfolds, the couple quickly realize they are not alone on this unpredictable evening with Casey and Aaron’s inner critics taking on a life of their own as other restaurant patrons transform into supportive best friends, manipulative exes and protective parents singing and dancing them through ice-breakers, appetizers and potential conversational land mines.  Can this couple turn what could be a dating disaster into something special before the check arrives?
