TheatreWorks Schedules Auditions for Petey and the Big Dog

Auditions are scheduled June 8 between 11 AM and 2 PM and June 9 between 2 and 4 PM for the first TheatreWorks production of the 2013 season - the world premiere of a new musical entitled Petey and the Big Dog, with music and book by local talents Tom Berry, Will Zimmer, and Scott Derks.

Plot Synopsis: according to a centuries old custom, the young, clueless heir to the village fortune must shoot the wolf to win a bride. But teenage love refuses to cooperate, and when you throw in a femme fatale, a golddigger, a know-it-all cat and a washed up wolf pack, what do you get?  A folk tale about a bunch of fakes, flakes, frauds and friends who make a hilarious mess of tainted tradition and misplaced love.  In the tradition of musical folk tale farces, Petey and the Big Dog assumes that cats talk, wolves sing ballads and everyone in the audience wants to attend a wedding.
