ACO will be holding auditions for our 2018 summer musical, Smile, directed by Jeremiah Albers. Auditions will be held April 2 & 3 with callbacks April 7. Times are subject to change. More information coming soon.
Smile is a hilarious satire about the values and phoniness behind the beauty pageant circuit. With book and lyrics by Howard Ashman (Little Shop of Horrors, Disney’s Little Mermaid, and Aladdin), and music by Marvin Hamlisch (A Chorus Line, They’re Playing Our Song), the musical explores the funny and heartwarming goings-on behind the scenes of the 1985 California Young American Miss Pageant.
