Two Thousand Miles is about four estranged friends who find themselves working on a musical together in New York City 6 years after high school graduation. Each character is facing a crossroads in their life that lead them to audition for this musical.
Ava Lopez – A personified triple threat of Puerto-Rican and Cuban descent. She’s a very passionate person with a no bullshit personality. She’s very generous with her time when it comes to her fans that she establishes, but when it comes to the business side of things she exudes a diva quality. She was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at 7 years old, and her doctors told her she would never be able to dance. Instead she was persistent and proved them wrong. After high school she opted to not get an education, and moved to New York to focus on her talents. She struggled for a few years and became so broke that she had to move back to her parent’s house in California. She then lands a lead on a hit TV show but realizes she still isn’t happy. (Late 20s-early 30s)
Williams Theatricals is also seeking singers and dancers for their upcoming fundraiser RISE: A BENEFIT FOR THE ARTHRITIS FOUNDATION held at The Davenport Theatre on Monday, March 26th.

Our event will also feature special guest Broadway performers that will be announced at a later date. Auditions will take place on Monday, February 26th at Ripley-Grier Studios. Please send your headshot and resume to Alyssa at firstname.lastname@example.org for an audition time and for what to prepare.
