Please prepare a briefup-tempo pop song that shows personality. Have 16 bars of a mid-tempo pop song ready as well, if asked. Bring sheet music in the correct key; an accompanist will be provided, but may not transpose. Please bring a photo and resume, stapled back-to-back.

Original, four-person, feel-good show for men and women about three divine but disillusioned women who unleash their inner cougar by dating younger men (played by one very sexy actor) and in the process, find self-love and empowerment. The multi-talented cast sing and dance their way through songs ranging from grinding blues to doo-wop, to pop to “Julio”, a romantic ballad sung to a vibrator. Hilarious, soulful andheartwarming, the showis a madcap ride from Cougar Bar to nail salon to boudoir and back as the women learn to sayyesto getting older,yesto trust and friendship andyesto empowering their lives, proving that love is ageless.
