    Who wants to be Nadya Suleman?

    Los Angeles -- Finally there's a way to become octo-mom Nadya Suleman without having to give birth or getting mixed up in a Charlie Kaufman movie.

    "Octomom the Musical" scheduled auditions for Tuesday at Bang Comedy Studio. The casting session runs from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at 457 N. Fairfax Ave. (map).

    The "fast-paced musical pastiche ripped from the headlines" is an "epic for our strange times," according to its website. The 10-week run will begin June 19, with performances every Friday and Saturday at 9:30 p.m.

    Producers released a description of what it takes to play Suleman:

    [OCTO AND VARIOUS]Female, Mid 20’s - mid 30’s. Funny, whimsical, but not too charactery. She should be able to command authority, play broad range of facial expressions plus physical comedy. Sketch and improv experience a plus. Likable, energetic and at the same time able to be emotionally expressive and believable. Can handle musical theatre and pop styles a plus. Actress who can move.

    Can't make Tuesday's audition? Don't worry, octo-hopefuls. According to the show's creator, Chris Voltaire, more try-outs will be held next week. Be sure to check octomomthemusical.com for more information. Also, the show is accepting electronic applications at octomusicalcasting@gmail.com.
