Auditions Announced!

We are just a few weeks away from auditions for our upcoming show, which opens on March 15, 2018. MisMatch.com is a brand new musical comedy about the perils of dating at a certain age… in South Florida. Even with all those online dating sites out there, finding the right someone at that certain sometime in your life is not as easy as it seems. Join girlfriends Phyllis, Rhonda, Miranda, and Dixie as they pursue a common goal: to find (male) companions to share their lives with.

DIXIE  Sweet but tough southern gal. Cross between Dolly Parton and Delta Burke. High end Real Estate Agent from Texas.
