Audition Notice
The Garage Theatre Presents:

Roadhouse Live!!!

A Parody

Adapted for the stage and Directed by Cat Elrod


“The Double Deuce is the meanest, loudest and rowdiest bar south of the Mason-Dixon Line, and Dalton has been hired to clean it up. He might not look like much, but the Ph.D.-educated bouncer proves he's more than capable -- busting the heads of troublemakers and turning the roadhouse into a jumping hot-spot. But Dalton's romance with the gorgeous Dr. Clay puts him on the bad side of cutthroat local big shot Brad Wesley.”

In this parody production we’ll transform The Garage Theatre into the rough tough roadhouse bar, The Double Deuce. Complete with brawling cowboys, real working bar and live roadhouse band!!
