Miscast Cabaret
8th - College

A group of teenage actors at an open audition find themselves "typed out" due to their physical characteristics and decide to come together and create a performance with music that not only defies type, but could possibly even defy age, race, and gender. With Broadway hits like Hamilton defying type and pushing the boundaries, we push the envelope even further and study characters that may even be the polar opposite of what you may generally be cast in. The results are a hilarious, unique, and entertaining performance!
