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, North Carolina “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 August 1 in Wilmington and the performances are slated for the first two weekends in October.
