PLEASE READ THIS FIRST!Thank you to the 95 of you who auditioned for Bye Bye Birdie!
You ALL did a fabulous job on your auditions and showed tremendous courage by being able to stand in front of us and sing, dance, and act. You should be very proud of yourselves. YOU ARE ALL SO BRAVE!
Remember, casting named roles - as well as ensemble parts - is like putting a big jigsaw puzzle together. There are several factors that go into casting on top of talent --- not the least which includes vocal range, chemistry with the other characters on stage, stage presence, conflicts, past attendance, projection....etc….etc… Each member of the cast is given the part they are given because that's where they fit in that puzzle. YOU ALL play a vital role in building that puzzle. Even if your part is not what you'd hope for, remember there is always a good and positive reason you are there. The role you play in the show is the place where you can make the biggest difference in making this the best show MNMS has ever done! YOU ARE IMPORTANT!
Every year, casting decisions get harder and harder. We were overwhelmed by the amount of talent this group had. You made these choices extremely difficult, and many of you stepped up and stepped into roles that surprised us.You were all THAT GOOD!
So when you see the cast list, CELEBRATE! You are going to be a part of something so very special, and remember that we are SO VERY EXCITED to have you in our cast!
