2019-2020 Season Auditions
Welcome! Venice Theatre is always looking for volunteer actors, singers and dancers.
The longest-running American Musical in Broadway history finally comes to Venice! CHICAGO has everything that makes Broadway musicals great: a universal tale of fame, fortune and all that jazz; one show-stopping song after another; and the sexiest, most astonishing Bob Fosse-inspired dancing you’ll ever see.
One person’s junk is another one’s treasure! This original musical comedy about a break up, a yard sale and … a mermaid caught our attention when it won awards at a recent national festival. Trust us, this show is as funny as its title!
A magical Venice Theatre tradition celebrating its 20th year! Our original musical adaptation of Dickens’ classic story follows Ebenezer Scrooge (played by Brad Wages) as he reflects on his past, present and possible future.
The final play in Arlene Hutton’s “Nibroc Trilogy.” In 1953, Raleigh and May continue their journey with a cross-country move to Siesta Key, FL. Not long after arriving, their dream house shrinks as relatives descend, further testing the couple’s love as they make difficult decisions in a changing world.
Four women at a lingerie sale have nothing in common but a black lace bra AND memory loss, hot flashes, night sweats, sexual hangups and more! This musical parody set to classic tunes from the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s will have you dancing in the aisles!
Una and Ray had a relationship 15 years ago and haven’t set eyes on each other since. She’s found him again and is seeking answers about the past. Guilt, rage, and raw emotions run high in what The Telegraph calls, “an extraordinary, no-holds-barred drama."
Matilda is an extraordinary girl with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind. But her talents are constantly belittled by her cruel parents and headmistress. Dreaming of a better life, she stands up against those who would oppress her, taking her destiny into her own hands.

Arts environments require risk, courage, vulnerability, and investment of our physical, emotional and intellectual selves.
Venice Theatre seeks to nurture spaces with strong safety nets that support that ethos without compromising a visceral and authentic experience for artists and audiences.
We believe that even in the absence of high-risk material, having pathways for response to unsafe conditions and harassment help to maintain the integrity of the work, its participants, and the organization.
