Book by Brian Crawley, Music by Jeanine Tesori, Lyrics by Brian Crawley

Directed by Sarah Scott Blakey


With a ticket, a suitcase and a heart full of expectations, Violet Karl waits for a Greyhound Bus in Spruce Pine, North Carolina.  It is September 4, 1964.  For a moment she sees herself as a young girl, carefree, before her face was horribly disfigured in an accident.  A local’s nosy question prompts her to look forward to the healing she expects to receive from a televangelist in Tulsa that will help her transcend her provincial little town and the eventual discovery of  the true meaning of beauty.  Nominated for four Tony Awards in 2014.

Music is Bluegrass, Memphis Blues and Gospel.

(1001 W. 7th St., Little Rock, AR 72201. On the corner of 7th and Chester) You only have to attend one of the times. Auditioners should prepare 16 to 32 bars of music; bring sheet music; an accompanist will be provided. If you don’t have a prepared song, feel free to sing “Happy Birthday” since the directors need to hear your voice and range. There will be cold readings from the provided script.


We are a theater which features plays of social significance, and we strive to treat each other with kindness, empathy and respect. Auditioning with us is designed to be a sharing and learning experience, not a competitive trauma, so please come join our Weekend Theater family!
