Important Dates


Cast List



Please scan through the entire list below. If you attended the first set of auditions, there is a possibility that you have been cast for more than one role. Some of you may have several costume changes and can be a good guy (Shang’s Troops) for one scene, and then quickly change to be a bad guy (Hun Army). Some of you may stay as one roll the entire show. You may also start as one character, go to the next, and change back into your original.

We also have cast understudies, and apprentices for some of the roles. If you have been selected for an understudy or apprentice, you attend all of the rehearsals that character is called for. These positions are not only necessary for this show, but necessary for any upcoming shows. Hint Hint.

Shang’s troops, The Hun Army & Avalanche...Still will be casting for this. I have on my fancy spreadsheet which of these routines you are available for. Each routine is very specific. For example, Shang’s troops require you use the “bo staff”, so you must be as swift as the coursing river, with all the force of a great typhoon. There is also a possibility where a dancer could start out in the troop, then costume change into a Hun.

I think this could be our best show yet! But, I need help! If you are willing and able to help out with sets, props, costumes, etc, please let me know. There are things that can be taken home, and some that may need to be done at the studio. We could have upwards of 100 costumes in this show. I may set up something similar to what we have done in the past. Have tasks to do at the studio, with directions on what to do with them.

I am currently needing large sturdy cardboard boxes. If you have any that you are willing to donate, we will happily take them! Anyone have access to confetti or co2 cannons?
