In 2010, more than 52,000 Miami-Dade Students were invited to the Adrienne Arsht Center to see Rock Odyssey, the Broadway-style rock musical version of Homer’s Odyssey complete with sword fighting, dancing, period costumes, and the unforgettable nine-foot Cyclops puppet. It was a huge success with its young audiences, who gave it rave reviews, saying things like “It was awesome!” “I loved it!” and “I would give Rock Odyssey an A+” The show returns this September to thrill and inspire a whole new class of fifth graders, many of whom will experience live theater for the first time.
Auditions for local actors will be held at the Adrienne Arsht Center on May 2, 3, and 4th. Equity and non-Equity actors are invited to audition for world renowned television producer and stage director, Douglas Love, and musical director, Eric Alsford, both of whom will return to remount the production. This is a unique and exciting opportunity for Miami actors to work with this acclaimed team of theater professionals and to make their mark on thousands of young people.

This year’s production will run from September 19th through September 30th in the John S. and James L. Knight Concert Hall.
