Auditions! - She Loves Me Not

Music and Book by Milo Graamans

Milo Graamans' Original Musical

Porthole Players is pleased to announce auditions for their summer 2019 production of She Loves Me Not, a musical comedy written and directed by Milo Graamans, with William Webster assistant directing. In 2014, director Carl Miller presented the world premiere of Milo's original work as a reader's theater musical at the Newport Performing Arts Center. The simple format allowed the production to take the show on the road, performing in Lincoln City, Yachats, and Florence. It was a smash success, and no doubt a memorable experience for the 700+ people who attended the four-show run. Now, we are preparing for a full stage production with a whole new cast. Auditions will be held February 16, 2019 at 3 pm at the Newport Performing Arts Center. Rehearsals will begin mid-June, and the production will run August 9-25, 2019.

The script features warm and witty dialogue, approachable and honest characters, and the music is filled with catchy melodies, harmonies and some surprises along the way too! Several roles have been pre-cast and others are OPEN as indicated below. There are no chorus/ensemble roles in this show. Auditioners should come prepared by perusing in advance the audition sides on this page (listed at right). If you would like to be considered but cannot attend auditions, or if you would like more information, please contact Milo directly via email or call 541-961-4478.
