A full-scale musical, from auditions to opening night, in one week? Can it be done? We think so, and we think it will knock your socks off, just as our popular 24-Hour Play Project has done in the past. The One-Week Musical Project, a special summer production by The Colonial Players, will begin with auditions at 10 a.m. on Saturday, July 9 at the Colonial Players Annex and end the following weekend with two performances at the theater--one Saturday evening and one Sunday afternoon. What musical will it be? Well, that’s half the fun of it; no one except the director and musical director will know what show it will be until after the auditions! Herewith, the details:

A play by Eric Bogosian
Directed by Paul Valleau
Presented by VVVC Productions
Three shows only! July 22, 23, and 24, 2016 at Colonial Players Theater, 108 East Street, Annapolis, MD 21401.
VVVC Productions, in cooperation with the Colonial Players, presents Eric Bogosian’s Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll, an intimate, gritty and often hilarious bombardment of commentary on a true American syndrome: self knowledge and how it does not prevent us from behaving badly. It is a rich and often profane medley of monologues that engages the perspective of 12 strangers you might encounter daily. Strangers you notice, or pretend not to notice. Each invites you to their corner of the room to witness their chase of the American Dream, constantly arriving, while always departing... Maybe we aren’t so different from one another..
Featuring Ben Carr, Kristi Valleau, Mary MacLeod, Erin Hill, Tim Sayles, Pat Reynolds, Ben Wolff, Steve Bissett, Josh Visnapuu, and Jeff Sprague.
Suggested donation: $10.00, cash or check to The Colonial Players.
