 Reminder:    This is a non-Equity/ACTRA and non-paying engagement.

One last thing:  I mentioned this is a WORLD PREMIERE, right?  That means that if you get a role, the published editions of this play will forever after include *your name* in that section at the beginning which lists the cast of the first production.  How cool is that?
