In this much loved musical that inspired the movie, "The Birdcage," we peer into the living quarters of a famed and lavish drag nightclub, La Cage Aux Folles. Two men partnered in love as well as show-biz, Georges and Albin have their self-worth challenged after twenty years of un-wedded bliss when Georges' son announces his impending marriage to the daughter of a conservative, right-wing politician. Georges reluctantly agrees to masquerade as "normal" to meet the family of the bride-to-be, but Albin has other plans, which escalate with hilarious results! In this charming and incredibly funny musical, we learn that families come in all forms, and that it is alright to be as you are!

Please bring sheet music in your key and be prepared to present a character and to act with your song. Also be prepared to dance. Bring tap shoes if you have them if auditioning for a Cagelle.
