Director Jason Tucker and musical director Justin Havard are looking for a diverse group of smart, energetic, and adventurous young people to fill these roles. We’ve expanded the age ranges a little, but in general we’re looking for actors who credibly appear school-age (excepting the two Adult characters). This show addresses adult themes, employs profanity, and includes sexual situations. There will be no nudity. Anyone under the age of 18 will need signed consent from a parent or guardian.
