Producer Jo Schuman Silver has announced auditions for male performers for Steve Silver’s Beach Blanket Babylon, the world’s longest running musical revue. Auditions will be held Saturday, February 8, 2014 at 2 p.m. at Club Fugazi (678 Beach Blanket Babylon Boulevard) in San Francisco. No appointment is necessary.
All auditioners should be prepared to sing one ballad and one up-tempo number (preferably rock or pop). An accompanist will be provided, but auditioners must bring their own sheet music (in their key) along with a current résumé and photo. Dance shoes are optional.

Beach Blanket Babylon offers competitive salary, full medical benefits (health) as well as paid vacations and sick leave.
