Thanks!

There are few nobler inventions than the pocket knife. It has hundreds of uses. Depending on the situation and the moment, any one of the tools on it may save the day or save your life. The blade may seem like the most important component… until you need the can opener or the screwdriver or the scissors. It just depends on that moment. They are all essential to creating that invention. And it’s not a pocket knife without all of them.

What’s vital to remember is that they are all made of the same steel.

In 25 years at Webb, this is the result of what I think is the most thorough, considered, and discussed casting process I have ever been a part of. I thank everyone for their humor and patience and optimism. Remember that a cast list is one guess at one point in time. This could have gone a dozen different ways and been just as interesting, and I am really grateful to everyone who is involved.

By the way, I’m not entirely sure what the Non-musical is going to be although it is narrowed down to a few candidates. However, unless you hear otherwise, auditions will be on the Monday and Tuesday before Thanksgiving.
