SILENCE! The Musical
Cloud 9 Theatricals, in association with Lang Entertainment Group and Ray of Light Theatre, announces auditions for SILENCE! The Musical, opening February 3rd at San Francisco’s historic Victoria Theatre. The production will be directed by Jason Hoover, music directed by Ben Prince and choreographed by Alex Rodriguez.
SILENCE! The Musical is a hilarious, “unauthorized” parody based on the Academy Award winning film The Silence of the Lambs.

Clarice faces her own demons while racing the clock to unlock Lecter’s clues before another innocent girl is killed and skinned.
