Check out a first look at the cast in action below!

First Date is a Musical Comedy with a Book by AUSTIN WINSBERG, Music & Lyrics by ALAN ZACHARY
and MICHAEL WEINER, Choreographed by LEE MARTINO.

The Southern California Premiere! When blind date newbie Aaron is set up with serial-dater Casey, a casual drink at a busy New York restaurant turns into a hilarious high-stakes dinner. As the date unfold in real time, the couple quickly finds that they are not alone in this unpredictable evening. In a delightful and unexpected twist, Casey and Aaron's inner critics take on a life of their own when other restaurant patrons transform into supportive best friends, manipulative exes and protective parents, who sing and dance them through ice-breakers, appetizers and potential conversational land mines. Can this couple turn what could be a dating disaster into something special before the check arrives?
