We finished our marathon first round of auditions; congrats to everyone who endured sitting in the Zoom waiting room. It was a pleasure to hear the amount of talent that joined us from across the country. I don’t envy the casting choices directorJeff needs to make, because everyone who auditioned did a great job. The pool of talent makes those choices very difficult! We will let applicants know the casting choices sometime over the next week, along with callbacks if needed.
