This is the original version of Ring of Fire.   From the songbook of Johnny Cash comes a celebration of his life in this musical that tells a fascinating story of love and faith, struggle and success, rowdiness and redemption, and home and family.  With more than two dozen classic Cash hits – “I Walk the Line,” “A Boy Named Sue,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Ring of Fire” and many more, creates a unique portrait of an American music legend.  Though never impersonated, Cash’s remarkable story is told in an exhilarating and moving stage production.

Cast Requirements
The cast consists of 4 male and 4 female performers.

Please prepare one verse of a song in country or gospel style.  Please bring sheet music.  An accompanist will be available.  If you’d prefer to sing with an accompaniment you bring on a device, a speaker will be available.

While no one impersonates Johnny Cash in the show, his story is told through song.  Singers do not have to play instruments in this production, but if you do, it’s a plus.  If you play guitar, upright bass, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, or piano, prepare a short piece to show your ability.  A keyboard will be available.  If you do play an instrument, you don’t have to accompany yourself on your song, but you may.  Otherwise, please prepare a short piece to show your ability.

You do not need to prepare a monologue but may be asked to read from the script.

Please use the sign-up genius link below to reserve your audition slot.

Rehearsals will begin around mid-February with a possible read-through in late January.

Please bring known conflicts. Headshots and resumes are appreciated but not required.

For additional information, please contact the director at or the producer, Valeria Amburgey at
