You better hold on tight, spider monkeys!
Dusk, a musical parody of the hit Twilight Saga film franchise, is heading to Edinburgh Fringe, and they want you in their coven.
The musical, which quickly gained attention on social media after clips of a Pennsylvania workshop production were uploaded online, will play the international arts festival this summer, following additional revisions. The musical has already racked up more than 3 million likes on TikTok alone.
Co-written by Morgan Kennedy and Daniel Ruffing, the parody reimagines Edward and Bella as Edwin and Bia, with beloved characters from the cult franchise coming to life through a series of inside-baseball references, in addition to more open parody and satire.
The production, which was previously staged last month at Gannon University in Erie, Pennsylvania, has opened auditions for interested parties to join the existing cast when they cross the pond. Information on their open audition process, as well as behind the scenes information on their development process, is available here.
