Auditions are in secret. And then the cast becomes top secret information...even to each other! Cast members rehearse one-on-one with our team then at the show, actors arrive and “sit” in the audience until their first line gets them out of their seat and on stage where we see the story unfold literally for the first time.This innovative one night only show is something you don't want to miss!
