For our concert presentation of this show we are seeking strong rock and choral singers. Ability to read music is a plus. The show will be cast based on ability to portray characters through vocal qualities. We are not restricted to traditional gender specific casting. We are dedicated to diversity representation and encourage singer/actors of color to audition. Should it be deemed necessary, the department will engage a professional actor to support the diversity mission of the department.

NOTES: This is a fundraiser to increase the ability for the department to cover future production costs, upgrade equipment, and facilitate guest designers/artists in our productions. 

Actors will be asked to use their own clothing for performances.
