This Tony Award nominated, hilarious musical adventure about following your dreams despite the limitations others set for you, is based on the 1980 cult classic film starring Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly.

Greek muse, Kira, descends from Mount Olympus to Venice Beach, California in 1980 to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first ROLLER DISCO! When Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation, and chaos abounds.

Please prepare one monologue and one musical selection.

·       The monologue must be no longer than 90 seconds. Be prepared to receive one or two redirects on the material.

·        A musical selection of your choice, no more than 32 bars. Xanadu is a classic pop show.  Consider singing a piece that resembles that style.

When you fill in your audition form online, you will be asked to provide a full list of conflicts. Be as complete as you can, especially around any holiday long weekends.  If there are changes in conflicts during the audition process, please inform the producer, or bring an updated conflict list to the audition and/or call backs.

The call-backs and rehearsal schedule will take into consideration the conflicts identified at time of audition. Adding more conflicts after casting may result in removal from the show.

There will be a group dance call at the auditions. Each role is looking for different movement abilities so all levels are welcome.

Also, there is roller skating in the show.  If you can roller skate, we encourage you to bring your roller skates to the audition so we can see you move a bit in them (any tricks, stability, etc). If you don’t roller skate, that’s ok too, but some roles do require it (Kira, Sonny) so we hope you will be willing to learn how to roller skate.



Individuals called back will be given a schedule specific to the characters for which they are being considered; this schedule will be communicated to each performer via email. People auditioning should inform the producers, at the time of their first audition, if there is any time on the callback days during which they are unavailable.

Please note – though we will try, we may not be able to accommodate all conflicts for call-backs.

If called back for a role (or roles), actors will be asked to prepare specific scenes and musical selections from the show. These will be sent along with callback notifications and will be available for preview online ahead of time.
