posted April 17, 2019 in Auditions, Jobs, News

Nantucket, the MusACKal is holding auditions for their musical this summer in Bennett Hall. If you saw the show last year and wanted to get involved, now is your chance! Sign up for an audition time slot here

DAY 1 AUDITION DATE/TIME: May 2 from 6pm - 8pm

DAY 2 AUDITION DATE/TIME: May 4 from 12pm - 2pm

LOCATION: Bennett Hall, 62 Centre St. 

DIRECTOR: Graydon Gund

REHEARSAL DATES: June 11 – July 2

SHOW DATES: July 3 – September 1



This fun-for-all show has an original, contemporary score that provides first-time tourists and year-rounders alike with a comprehensive and comical telling of Nantucket’s history in a tight 70-minutes, packed with a laugh every second (which is approximately 4200 laughs per show, so bring your inhaler, just in case.)

From Maria Mitchell to Madaket Millie, the distinct characters of Nantucket’s past are brought to life by the sassy and salacious spirit of Nantucket: “Lady Grey” herself. She’s on a mission to educate two aspiring writers who have been tasked with writing (you guessed it) a MUSICAL about the island… on a very tight deadline!

With songs like “The Oldest/Newest House”, “It’s Cool to be a Quaker”, and “Ladies Run the Nation of Nantucket”, the show spans the island’s history from Native American lore to the progressive idealists of the mid-1800s, straight on up to the absurdly long line outside of “The Juice Bar” this very afternoon…!


ENSEMBLE – Lady Grey’s magical minions!  Playing an assortment characters from (or inspired by) the island’s past ranging from a boat load of whalers to Maria Mitchell and Frederick Douglas and even some kick a** Quaker bi**hes.
