sorry, am not being ageist on purpose, but its a very physical play and i’m looking not only or good actors but very supple and athletic ones too…not that this is any negative reflection on either of you two gentlemen’s physiques. also, this is my yearly youth theatre thing. y’all are too old.

we will be producing more shows throughout the year, so keep your eyes peeled for ones that cast – ahem – ‘mature’ actors.
