Thanks for waiting, my friends. I made the mistake of taking my computer with me on the dance team trip without a power cord. Needless to say, no computing was accomplished! My apologies for the extra day of suffering.
I was able to cast everyone. However, I hope that many of you will be willing to serve as understudies for additional roles. This is an amazing learning experience and a great skill to master. As many of you know, understudying was how I broke into the world of Equity (professional actor’s union) acting. I will discuss the understudy cast (and create a list of those interested) more thoroughly at rehearsal.
