Crawlspace: A True Crime Musical 

Book and Lyrics by Jason Spraggins 

Music by Matt Glickstein

Auditions:   Monday,  August 29 and Tuesday, August 30 from  6 to 10pm.

The Story:
Crawlspace is based on the story of a convicted serial killer. Although inspired by his words and the public record of his life and crimes, this is a work of historical fiction. Certain names and identifying details have been changed to protect individuals' privacy, and liberties have been taken that differentiate this work from true-life events. Crawlspace is a theatrical re-imagining of the story and repercussions of the tragic crimes. 

Auditions will consist of cold-readings from the script.
Plus: Interested performers are encouraged to prepare a short singing selection.

Roles available for 17 actors, 12 main roles and 5 supporting roles:
5- women, 10-11 men.
Casting is open to all interested people. Minority performers are strongly encouraged to audition.
Directed by Mark Harry Creter.
Produced by the Tennessee Tech English Department
