Kinky Boots

Book by
Harvey Fierstein

Music and Lyrics by
Cyndi Lauper

Original Broadway Production Directed and Choreographed by Jerry Mitchell

Based on the Miramax motion picture Kinky Boots
Written by Geoff Deane and Tim Firth

Kinky Boots is the big-hearted musical extravaganza that won six Tonys including Best Musical, the Grammy for Best Musical Theatre album and London’s Olivier Award for Best Musical. Kinky Boots features a joyous, Tony-winning score by pop icon Cyndi Lauper, and a hilarious, uplifting book by four-time Tony winner, Harvey Fierstein. Billy Porter won a Best Actor Tony Award for his portrayal of Lola.

Charlie Price has reluctantly inherited his father’s shoe factory, which is on the verge of bankruptcy. Trying to live up to his father’s legacy and save his family business, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola, a fabulous entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos. As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair find that they have more in common than they realized… and discover that when you change your mind, you can change your whole world.

Kinky Boots
is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).

We are seeking a very diverse cast representative of our community – with a wide range of ages, types and ethnicities. A full character breakdown from the script is available below. Additional information about the show’s plot and a character breakdown is available on our Audition page.

Those wishing to audition should prepare a vocal selection no longer than one minute. Please bring sheet music for the pianist as accompaniment will be provided. For these auditions, you will also be asked to sing selections from the show (we will teach them to you, of course). Callbacks will be by invitation only on May 16 – where we will also ask you to learn a dance routine and give out scene sides to read.

So, ladies and gentlemen (and those who have yet to make up their minds), we look forward to seeing you either May 14 or 15 at 7:00pm. Bring a friend or three – and go ahead and feel free to fill out and print our audition form in advance.

Announcing our 2017-2018 Season!

A Christmas Story, The Musical
December 1-3 and 8-10, 2017 at Theatre Tallahassee

New Stage Theatreworks presents the Tallahassee premiere of an exciting new dimension to the movie classic that runs round-the-clock on television every Christmas. From the musical team of Pasek and Paul (Edges, James and the Giant Peach, Dogfight), this Tony-nominated musical will excite those who have seen the movie and will certainly stand on its own for those who haven’t. Set in the 1940s in the fictional town of Hohman, Indiana, we follow 9-year-old Ralphie Parker and his quest for the Holy Grail of Christmas gifts – an Official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot Range Model air rifle. Rebuffed at every turn with a similar echoing response, Ralphie plots numerous schemes to achieve his dream gift. All the iconic scenes from the movie are here: tongues stuck to flagpoles; Randy in his snowsuit; bullies Farkus and Dill; the leg lamp award; the bunny suit; the Chinese restaurant; Christmas dinner; and many others. You’ll want to shoot your eye out if you miss this show!

Book by Joseph Robinette. Music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. Based on the motion picture A Christmas Story distributed by Warner Bros., written by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown and Bob Clark, and upon In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash written by Jean Shepherd. Produced with permission of Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures and Dalfie Entertainment.

Originally Produced on Broadway by Gerald Goehring, Roy Miller, Michael F. Mitri, Pat Flicker Aldiss, Peter Billingsley, Timothy Laczynski, Mariano Tolentino, Jr., Louise Beard, Michael Filerman, Scott Hart, Alison Eckert, Bob Bartner, Michael Jenkins, Angela Milonas, and Bradford W. Smith.

Produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois.


Green Day’s American Idiot
July 13 – 15 and 20 – 22, 2018 at Theatre Tallahassee
Music by Green Day. Lyrics by Billie Joe Armstrong. Book by Billie Joe Armstrong and Michael Mayer

From a BB gun to “21 Guns”, New Stage Theatreworks presents the Tallahassee premiere of the two-time Tony Award-winning electric-rock musical of youthful disillusion. Johnny, Tunny and Will struggle to find meaning in a post-9/11 world. When the three disgruntled men flee the constraints of their hometown for the thrills of city life, their paths are quickly estranged when Tunny enters the armed forces, Will is called back home to attend to familial responsibilities, and Johnny’s attention becomes divided by a seductive love interest and a hazardous new friendship. This high-octane show includes every song from Green Day’s album, American Idiot, as well as several songs from its follow-up release, 21st Century Breakdown. Get ready to whip out your guy-liner, leathers and pent-up angst for what Charles Isherwood of The New York Times declared “thrilling, emotionally charged, and as moving as any Broadway musical I’ve seen this year!”

Green Day’s American Idiot is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI, 421 West 54th Street, New York NY 10019 Tel,:(212) 541-4684 Fax: (212) 397-4684
