BREAKDOWN

***In reference to the information below – these are descriptions of the characters as identified in the script and in collaboration with the creative team. They are not meant to be exhaustive of who should play these roles and we seek to cast as expansively and authentically as possible. We are committed to the most inclusive representation of race/ethnicity, gender, body type, and ability on our stages.

As an ADA compliant theatre, we welcome performers of all abilities and will make all reasonable accommodations in order to cast performers, regardless of disability, in any role possible. We also recognize that most characters are written on the binary (use he/him or she/her pronouns) and we invite gender non-conforming, genderqueer, transgender, and non-binary actors to submit for the roles they most identify with. We list race/ethnicity when specific to the character but are otherwise seeking all races and ethnicities.
