Auditions for "Nevermore" The Musical
May 4th & May 5th 2020 at 6PM-10PM . Auditions will be held at Stiipointe Theatre at 1915 Maryland Ave.
Take a dark and mysterious journey into the life of Edgar Allan Poe. This imaginative musical uses Poe’s poetry and short stories as its base and his shifting obsession with the women in his life as its catalyst. With hauntingly beautiful melodies, Nevermore breathes new life into Poe’s work and explores a twisted true-life tale that is as bizarre as his classic stories of the macabre.
