Synopsis: A young, selfish boy named Nate wakes up to find that he is stranded on a deserted island. He has only one item with him in addition to the clothes on his back…. his father’s guitar. He quickly discovers the guitar is enchanted. When playing the guitar (depending on which song he chooses) a significant person or people from his life is summoned to the island for a period of one hour. Each person or group of people he summons spends the hour with him differently but each help him discover a new clue about the value of selflessness and love that lead to his eventual escape from the island.
Those wishing to audition should bring a musical theater selection to sing (we will have an accompanist available) and they should also be prepared to read a few lines of dialogue from a script which will be provided.
