Orphans: Girls who look and act between the ages of 6-13. If enough girls audition, we will do a double cast.

We are looking for both singers and dancers for this production, but everyone needs to do some of each.  Whether you consider yourself a dancer who can carry a tune or a singer who can move, we want to see you.
