All should plan to stay to the end of the hour to attend the dance/movement call.


Please prepare 32 bars of a song in the style of the show with sheet music in the correct key. No recordings, please. An accompanist will be provided. Bring a headshot, resume, conflict calendar through October 19, and clothes and shoes comfortable to move in. All will be expected to attend the dance/movement call at the end of each hour.

Please note:

This is a heavy tap show and the ensemble needs to be proficient in tap as well as classical musical theatre styles. Every character taps at some point. Please bring your tap shoes to the audition.

Auditions will be held at 761 Mabury Rd, Suite 20 in San Jose.

Callbacks by invitation only will be held on Wednesday, June 5.

The rehearsal calendar is compact and fast-paced. Therefore, conflict calendars will be a primary consideration for casting. Only minor conflict schedules will be considered, if any. No conflicts during tech week accepted.


No, No, Nanette is a lighthearted romp showcasing the charming music of Vincent Youmans. Set among the well-to-do during the heyday of the Roaring Twenties, the wacky story involves three couples sharing a cottage in Atlantic City in the midst of a blackmail scheme, with plenty of deception, romantic mishaps, comical misunderstandings, and lots of dancing! 

Even though it was written and first performed 100 years ago, it brought us a couple of songs about happiness that remain popular today: “Tea for Two” and “I Want to Be Happy” – as well as “I’ve Confessed to the Breeze,” “You Can Dance With Any Girl,” and “Take a Little One-Step.”

SBMT Casting Commitment

South Bay Musical Theatre is actively re-shaping our company to be reflective of the community it serves. We practice non-traditional and identity-conscious casting in all our productions. We are seeking and highly encouraging all actors to submit, regardless of race/ethnicity/caste, disability, body type, age, orientation, or gender/gender identity.  All cast are volunteers with a performance per diem equal to $250 total.
