Thanks to the 67 students who auditioned for our production, who, as Mr. Canavese put it "bravely stared down stage fright and shared their talents." As the Newsies song goes, "Courage cannot erase our fear. Courage is when we face our fear." Mr. Canavese noted "These decision are always complicated and difficult—I wish I could have rewarded all of the talent on display. Finding the right mix of ability, age, experience, and suitability for parts is a subjective and mysterious process. If you're able, please try out for a future production, or for OneActors (November 16 in the Black Box Theatre, 1:30-4:00 pm) or Sanguine Humours."

First cast meeting/rehearsal will be Monday, November 12 from 4:00 - 6:15 pm in the Main Stage Theatre.
