Work with Broadway Talent!

Midland Center for the Arts is searching for the top talent in the Great Lakes Bay Region that is interested in gaining professional-level experience and training from a Broadway Creative Team for a summer production of GREASE. This newest initiative is designed for Rising Stars, current High School students ages 16 and up, who will work through an intensive rehearsal process and star in this 1950s rock and roll musical hit. Rehearsals will include a professional-level schedule and daily small group collaboration in a safe, healthy, outdoor environment (Indoor rehearsal in the case of inclement weather).

The Broadway Creative Team brings decades of professional experience from the Great White Way, starring and working on productions like The Phantom of the Opera, Hello Dolly, Frozen, CATS, Beautiful: The Carole King Musical, Spiderman and much more.

Performances will run June 25-27, 2021. Performer Tuition $200 for those who are cast. Payment due after casting no later than 6/1/21

We are no longer accepting auditions for this production, and those that auditioned will be contacted by the Creative Team about casting.
