Casting for the new musical Trevor is well on its way ahead of the production’s Off-Broadway bow at Stage 42.
In a recent open casting call, casting director Merri Sugarman and music director Matt Dietchman began the search for teens in the show, about 13-year-old Trevor as he deals with shaping his own identity in today’s world. Casting is on the lookout for performers to fill the musical's 19 roles.
“The main thing is that the kids in this show aren’t showbiz-y, or slick, or overly polished in any way. We want kids that an audience can look at and say, ‘Oh I see myself in them,’” says Sugarman in the video above.
Josh Prince will choreograph and Marc Bruni will direct.
