Tales from the Casting Ouch

Actors seeking perspective would be wise to look elsewhere for a prospective job.

Our theatre company does improff.

Is that improv hosted by Spring Awakening star Jonathan Groff or what, exactly?

Seeking: Gymnists and Panamines.

Seeking: Spel chek.

Be apart of our promotional expansion.

I wanna be apart of it... space bar, space bar...
