This pilot production is open to performers ages 8-18!


The ghost-with-the-most comes to the stage in this edgy and irreverent musical comedy based on Tim Burton’s dearly beloved film. Beetlejuice tells the story of Lydia Deetz, a strange and unusual teenager obsessed with the whole “being dead thing.” Lucky for Lydia, her new house is haunted by a recently deceased couple and Beetlejuice, a delightful demon with a real zest for life. When Lydia calls on Beetlejuice to scare away anyone with a pulse, this double-crossing specter shows his true stripes, unleashing a (Nether)world of pandemonium, and the biggest sandworm Broadway has ever seen. 


This pilot production will allow performers to originate roles and be a part of the development process for a brand-new adaptation! Read more about a pilot below!


All rehearsals and performances will be held at Millburn High School
462 Millburn Ave, Millburn NJ


This production will meet from 9am-3pm Monday-Friday from July 31-Aug. 11.


Performances will be held August 11-13.


Any/all conflicts must be approved prior to casting but we are ideally looking for performers with full availability given the brevity of the process.

Participation Fee: $595

(includes 60+ hours of instruction, professional production photos, and a chance to be a part of a fully staged, fully designed new musical)

All roles are open to performers of all backgrounds and identities. We aim to cultivate a diverse and inclusive community both onstage and off.


What is a pilot production?

We are working with Music Theatre International and iTheatrics to help them to develop this new adaptation. This means that we will be one of the first companies in the country to produce this show and it means our actors will be some of the first to play these roles! The show itself may be changed/adjusted throughout the process and our production will help inform the final licensed version. The show (either in its live form or through our archival video) will be viewed by MTI/iTheatrics executives as well as the rights holders.
