Normally, there would be a little more accompanying this posting, but we are caught between pre-Christmas craziness and a reasonable desire to know what the cast is as soon as possible.

There will be more details to come, and more casting to happen. But that will probably happen at readthrough’s, etc. Please use the materials you already have to try to get off book by the time we return to school. Do your best. I’m proud of the work everyone did at the auditions, and I think this is going to be an extremely strong show, top to bottom. Almost everyone is going to be playing MANY more characters than are listed here.

Because we still have people yet to read for the play, and because there were a number of people who seemed to want to read further, callbacks are a little academic at this point. Which is appropriate, because we are a school. Be that as it may, and I doubt that it was, if anyone feels as if they want to read further for something, please come do so. I have a lot of interesting decisions to make, and they are interesting because everyone read so well. If I absolutely, positively need to hear someone read for something after today, I will contact them. So, if you have not read, or if you are looking forward to reading something else, I will see you shortly.
