A MUSICAL is set to hit the Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre stage in November, but first the cast needs to be filled.

Auditions for the Chrysalides Musical for high school-aged people will be held on Sunday and May 18.

The scene is set at a high school, where chaos, drama and comedy takes place.

Sarah Janson ad Jenny Jarman have filled two of the spaces within the cast - and the musically talented pair cannot wait to be on stage.

Sarah plays Petin, a lovely, shy girl.

"I have been in a few musicals in high schools," she said. "I just love to perform and act on stage."

Jenny's role is the quirky Miss Griggs.

"I'm hoping she's a fun character - she's a little goofy," she said.

The musical production is a first for producer and writer Michael Lunan, who is an engineer.

"Five years ago I had a lot of personal issues, I wrote a lot of stuff down, and I decided to write a musical," Mr Lunan said.

Two years later he found a musical arranger, Frank Collimore.

Mr Lunan was astounded by the amount of talent he and Mr Collimore have found so far, but the search continues.

"We have lots of young, girl drama queens, but no kings," he said.

Auditions will be held at 1.30pm on Sunday, May 4 and 18 at the St Stephen's Lutheran College Hall.
