Ascendio is VERY excited to be hosting the premiere of a new fan-written Harry Potter musical!
On Friday, July 13, a new Harry Potter inspired musical will be put on on the Ascendio main stage! Mischief Managed is a fan-written musical by Jessica Milne, which sees the Next Generation discovering James Potters journals, and learning all about the Marauder’s story — all set to original music written by Jessica!
Mischief Managed is currently a one-act musical (but may expand if there’s interest and a big enough cast!), so while it will involve some rehearsals at Ascendio, the time commitment is not huge. So if you’re an aspiring singer, and plan on attending Ascendio, auditions are open as of NOW!
All auditions and almost all rehearsals will be held entirely online! Through Youtube and Skype, anyone from anywhere can take part in Mischief Managed. The only “locational requirement” is that you be a registered attendee of Ascendio (ie: you’re coming to the con!). MMtM is casting all sorts of people and voices, so even if you don’t see your dream character on the list, audition! Characters and parts may be added in the coming weeks (such as Scorpius, Lucius, Regulus, Albus Severus, etc.), and some roles may be cast with the opposite gender (ie: a girl may play a male part, and vice versa).
