Q: Does Rose of Athens Theatre, Inc. do musicals?
A: We commission composers who create music and perform for almost all of our  productions.  (For instance, Marty Winkler composed all the music for Alice in Wonderland). We integrate  live music and dance/movement into many of our productions, so we like to know how you move and if you can carry a tune. Also, if you play an instrument, bring it to the audition and show us!
