Broadway Nights Returns and Auditions are Open

It has been about one year and four months (but who is counting – patiently waiting) since director Thomas Farmer with Star Inc. brought his vision of Broadway Nights to the Fair Theatre stage in Somerville, Tennessee and literally wowed the audience with the production. Thomas’ desire was for the “audience to leave with a smile on their faces” and for the production to “go above and beyond expectations”. He managed to accomplish both as the performance dates were extended at the audience’s request. Farmer returns this season with open auditions for the next production in the series with Broadway Nights: Summer Lovin’.

The cast for this production will include actors ages 12 years old and up at the time of the audition, which is by Sunday, March 17, 2024, as video submissions only are being accepted. It is never a surprise to see several homeschoolers in the productions, on the stage and behind the scenes, that are presented by the Star Inc. theatre company. In the first Broadway Nights production, Thomas, a homeschool graduate himself, had a cast that included several homeschool students, current and graduates.

The auditions are open to all wanting to be a part of what is expected to be another fantastic production. The directors are Thomas and Halle Farmer, and assistant director Jade Lindsey. Note, you do not have to be a homeschool student to audition for Broadway Nights: Summer Lovin’.
