Auditions for Regional Premier of Fix Me, Jesus

Playhouse Announces Open Auditions for Regional Premier of Fix Me, Jesus

The Dayton Playhouse will hold open auditions for Fix Me, Jesus on Monday and Tuesday, January 26 & 27, at 7 p.m. both evenings. Auditions will be held at the Dayton Playhouse, 1301 E. Siebenthaler Ave, Dayton, Ohio 45414. Production dates are March 13-22, 2015. Director for this production is Brian Sharp.

Fix Me, Jesus was written by Helen Sneed, who is well known to Dayton Playhouse audiences as a favorite visiting adjudicator for FutureFest, a summer festival of new plays, now in its 25th year. The Dayton Playhouse is proud to present this regional premier of Fix Me, Jesus.

In a Neiman Marcus changing room in Dallas, on the most important day of her life, Annabell Armstrong frantically searches for the perfect dress. A rising star in the Texas Democratic Party, Annabell is trapped in the Reagan eighties. Her political career, love affair, finances, and family relations are in crisis; and strong-minded characters from her past begin to appear from behind the changing room mirror. FIX ME, JESUS is a dark comedy—the hilarious, timely, and poignant story of a woman who finds herself at the epicenter of history and politics, struggling for personal independence and social justice against the lifelong theft of her own power. “FIX ME, JESUS is a brilliant emotional roller coaster ride…There’s humor, love, laughter, and high fashion…not to be missed.” —

COMING SOON: The Fantasticks!

January 23 – February 8, 2015
Opening initially off-Broadway in 1960 this delightful show is billed as the world’s longest running musical, having logged 17,162 performances when it closed in 2002. The Fantasticks is a funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl, two fathers and a wall. The narrator asks the audience to use their imagination and follow him into a world of moonlight and magic. “The show hasn’t lost its appeal; it feels like a game of make-believe. The Fantasticks is just like the kind of teen-age love it depicts: nectar-sweet, exempt from time, and not nearly as simple as you may remember.” The New Yorker. “The famous score, which includes Try to Remember, They Were You and Soon It’s Gonna Rain, is as timeless as the story itself.” New York Post.
