Angie, this is an odd way to bump this thread and promote auditions for your show, but I applaud you for thinking outside of the box.

Thanks Dennis,

I'm in Hawaii right now. Tom is sleeping off the luau from last night so I am playing around on the computer till he comes alive again.

We are really excited about this show, it is going to be our most challenging to date. Largest cast, Largest budget, Dealing with youth performers, plus our space is smaller than this show would normally be done in.

BUT I have an amazing design team signed on who have some fantastic ideas on how to make it really work, so I am uber excited.

And my director (Missy Styles of the Babes with Blades, & Factory Theater fame) is fantastic. Her last show she directed was Cheaper by the Dozen so she has a lot of experience with kids (and stage combat not that there is a ton but just enough to tickle your fancy)

So yes very excited for this one.

Auditions are filled up right now but we ALWAYS have folks drop out last second so PLEASE (especially if you know a youth performer ages 8-11) come by as a walk in.
