This was the first audition I did on ACX. The description seemed so perfect! How could I miss this one? Well, I was correct, and this book was a whole lot of fun. As a musical theatre parody, I had to make up several melodies and sing in many different voices as well. There are also lots of fun little “discoveries” for true musical theatre fans. This is a funny romp, and I hope you enjoy it!

When Bertram Wiggly leaves his job as an appliance actuary – calculating the life expectancy of major appliances so their warranties expire precisely one day before they implode – he thinks he’s found the perfect place to retire in Medville, with its town square, circled by brick-cobbled streets and quaint shops with bright red and white awnings. But then the town rezones itself for musicals. At any moment an invisible orchestra is apt to strike up a melody and the otherwise sane townsfolk of Medville burst into song. And not just song, either. Dance. Against his will, Bertram finds himself in the midst of a musical comedy in which he has been cast as the comic curmudgeon. Can Bertram defy Sam, the mysterious orchestra leader, and thwart the destiny laid out for him?
