Among the largest pre professional musical productions for young people in the country, the Muse Machine Musical features up to 170 students as on stage performers (actor/singer/dancers), musicians and behind the scenes as production assistants. Auditions are open to current Muse members in grades 8-12 and may be open to younger students, depending on the opportunities of each particular show. Detailed audition and interview information is posted online and provided through Muse Machine advisors at the beginning of the school year.
Auditions begin during the last week of September. Rehearsals begin in mid October. Most of our performers are also in shows at their schools, other orchestras, play sports, etc, and we make every effort to be flexible around students’ other school commitments and to be a complementary experience. Tickets go on sale to the public in mid November through Ticket Center Stage and the musical opens in early January.
The next summer concert at the Victoria Theatre will occur in 2018 and will be announced the preceding spring. A Song For Suzy, a concert to open the new Suzy Bassani Theater Off Third is scheduled for August 4, 2017.

Bravo to the young cast, orchestra and production assistants on their joyous production of Hairspray. And thank you to the audiences and sponsors for cheering and supporting so incredibly.
“You can’t stop the joy… Hairspray is a glorious hit all over again thanks to the Muse Machine’s truly delightful, impressively cast and genuinely crowd-pleasing production…” (from the Dayton Most Metro review by Russell Florence, Jr., see link on the Hairspray Musical Archive for full review). Photos and production info are available in the Musical Archive as well!
