After all of your excellent auditions, we have cast 14 of the main roles and sent out emails to all auditionees, so that by now you should know whether you will be part of Stage Experience 2011! Woot! The principle cast are listed below:

Nicely-Nicely Johnson – Adam Biggs

Benny Southstreet – Ryan Anderson

Rusty Charlie – Myles Osborn-Banton

Sarah Brown – Georgina Hendry

Agatha Abernathy – Rebecca Goldie

Harry The Horse – Gregory Birkes

Lt. Brannigan – Sam Barton

Nathan Detroit – Luke Saunders

Angie the Ox – Gwilym Temple

Miss Adelaide – Eve Norris

Sky Masterson – Edd Bird

Mimi – Jade White

General Cartwright – Adriana Perucca

Big Jule – Georgina Smith-Blacker

Don't worry if you haven't got one of these roles - the chorus plays an integral part in any musical theatre production, and several smaller speaking roles will also be cast during the two weeks of Stage Experience.

Now, back to filing all your forms! Phew. It's hard work this producing lark...

Auditions - phew...

First of all - thank you so so much to everyone who came along to the open auditions yesterday! There were 178 of you in total and you were all fantastic (I was a little jealous of you all learning those dance steps so quickly! Grrr.) We're in the process of sorting out all the paperwork and we'll be in touch very soon with all the cast details and information on the next steps.

In the meantime, keep working on those jazz hands...
