Character Breakdown

Though not "musicals," the shows will prominently feature live original music and several songs. The director hopes to cast several actors who have basic singing skills and/or instrumental skills. The music piece of the audition is not about how well you sing or play, but how willing you are to celebrate life with music.

There are 4 Equity Actor contracts available per show for 2 shows, to be cast among all the available roles.
