Wheat Ridge Theatre Company 

Announces Auditions for TRIUMPH OF LOVE

Book: James Magruder | Lyrics: Susan Birkenhead | Music: Jeffrey Stock

Directed by Alex Romberg

Choreography by Lauren Russell


A farcical, gender-bending romp of a musical in which a princess falls in love with the man that is arranged to assassinate her to reclaim the throne for his family. To win his heart, she disguises herself and her lady’s maid as men, and along the way she ends up seducing his philosophizing uncle…and his philosophizing aunt. It’s up to her and the help of her maid, a harlequin and a gardener to untangle the mess to help find everyone’s happily ever after.
