Auditions for Ace of Hearts the musical are open! The show will be premiering at MC Showroom as part of the Midsumma Festival.
Welcome to 2018 – the age of sexual liberation. But a world of freedom brings new expectations. Kiera couldn’t follow the rules, and was cast aside.
Now, with new friends to lead the way, Kiera is determined to play the game. She still feels no desire to kiss the most beautiful men or women, let alone take one of them to bed. However, she is willing to sacrifice anything to avoid being outcast again.
Written by Natasha Pearson & Hayden Dun. Directed by Mudit Dhami.
