Casting Complete

Auditions for the spring musical garnered thirteen students, each with various talents and abilities. Auditions included a choreographed routine that student learned on the spot and performed together. They also sang a "Hard Knock Life" from the musical Annie. Practices begin on Thursday, Feb 26th with performance dates set for April 24th and 25th.

Audiences will be treated to over a dozen songs from popular Broadway musicals such as Cats, Oklahoma, Show Boat, Singing In the Rain, and many more. As audiences follow the crazy love interests within a fledgling theater troupe, things get even more complicated after the owner sends his daughter to play the lead. Tempers flare, hearts are broken and new love discovered as the Bethesda students put on yet "Another Musical"!
