Hello, awesome Thespians! It’s time to get ready for the All-State Opening Number again! We are excited about this year’s show and are looking forward to working with YOU!

We are looking for Thespians with good attitudes, good work ethic, and of course, TALENT! Our goal is to cast about 50 people plus a featured dance corps. Competition will be tough. Be prepared to do your best.

Example: 3 Performers and 1 Technician…3 Technicians and 1 Performer.

You may also send 1 additional thespian that can play a trombone, trumpet, sousaphone, marching baritone, bass drum, cymbals, tenors, or marching snare at an intermediate to advance level.  They need to bring their own instrument and play a 30 second prepared piece or drum cadence.
