As of 11/28 we have found the singers needed for this project, but will continue to take submissions from anyone who would like to send in materials. We are working on another opera as well as a pop/rock musical, for which we will need singer-actors for demo recordings, read-throughs, and performances.
Thanks to everyone who submitted!
