Main Cast Program

Overview


The summer production is an original rock musical written by Janinne Chadwick. We cast 70 children ages 8 through 14 (jr. high age, no high schoolers). See Admissions Policy. The cast-members act, sing, dance, and even help build props and scenery (when time allows).

Casting

Children are cast by musical ability (pitch, range, and harmony), improv and acting skills, dancing skills, and attendance. We also sometimes consider the “look” needed for a certain character, as well as the on-stage chemistry between characters. Group requests are honored whenever possible. All children get a chance to shine! Every actor has a minimum of 2 lines.

Staff

All staff members have had extensive experience working in theater, in music, and with youngsters. Child-to-adult ratio is usually about 12 to 1. Staff bios can be found here.
