KCP will present “Closer Than Ever” in May 2018, directed by Mel Hinch. If you are interested in auditioning, please read the CHARACTER INFORMATION & complete THE AUDITION FORM.

CLOSER THAN EVER: This is a brilliant musical revue that explores the challenges of modern day love. It requires four very strong singers/actors: 2 women and 2 men. You must be able to “sell” a song, hold a harmony, and do minimal dancing.
