SHOWTUNES concert productions involve a short and intense rehearsal and performance timeframe, and strong singers/actors are required. Actors must be available for all rehearsals and performances. Light in The Piazza is extremely musically intricate. The show is an operatic musical in nature, which means we are looking for excellent, classically-trained musicians.

SHOWTUNES is based in Seattle, WA and casts locally. Showtunes looks to cast without boundaries that normal productions have. We encourage you to think outside your traditional casting type and make bold choices!

THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA takes place in Italy in the summer of 1953. Margaret Johnson, the wife of an American businessman, is touring the Tuscan countryside with her daughter, Clara. While sightseeing, Clara-a beautiful, surprisingly childish young woman-loses her hat in a sudden gust. As if guided by an unseen hand, the hat lands at the feet of Fabrizio Naccarelli, a handsome Florentine, who returns it to Clara. This brief episode, charged with coincidence and fate, sparks an immediate and intense romance between Clara and Fabrizio. Margaret, extremely protective of her daughter, attempts to keep Clara and Fabrizio apart. As THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA unfolds, a secret is revealed: in addition to the cultural differences between the young lovers, Clara is not quite all that she appears. Unable to suppress the truth about her daughter, Margaret is forced to reconsider not only Clara's future, but her own hopes as well.
