Phylloxera Productions is pleased to announce auditions for Hemingway’s Wife, an original musical by Erin Murray Quinlan, to be held at The Players’ Ring in Portsmouth.

The director is also looking for at least 1 female dancer.
Singers are asked to bring two contrasting pieces of music, each no more than 16 bars in length. If you are not interested in the singing roles, you may wish to audition on the day of the callbacks, to have more time to read.
