Project Synopsis
Bound Musical Theatre Society will be holding auditions for In Concert performances of Bound! The Musical. The In Concert performances will have songs memorized and scenes on book, with limited choreography, simple costumes and props, lighting, but no sets. The performances will be November 19-20 at Metro Theatre in Vancouver. Bound! is an uplifting comedy musical featuring fresh and catchy pop-rock style songs and an ensemble cast of 10 relatable, well-developed, and diverse characters, in their early-mid 20s. After their small-town transforms into a new country, and all the dominoes fall, can they conquer both external chaos and their inner demons through courage, love, and personal transformation? Of course!
