Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams brought romance and drama to 2004’s “The Notebook” -- the only thing missing was possibly someone bursting into song. But soon, that will all change when another couple gets the chance to bring the drama to life – this time as a stage musical.
“One Tree Hill” star Bethany Joy Galeotti and music producer Ron Aniello are mounting a musical workshop based on the beloved Nicholas Sparks novel.
According to the producing duo’s Web site, the workshop, which will take place in Wilmington, N.C., “is a preliminary step toward an eventual opening in New York.”
There is no pay for the actors involved in the workshop but the duo noted, “this is a great opportunity to be a part of the beginning stages of an original theatre piece headed for Broadway.”
Auditions will start on Aug. 1 in Wilmington and the performances are slated for the first two weekends in October.
