Looking for an ensemble of 16. The way the show works is the ensemble moves the sets right on stage in full light and become part of the moving picture. The ensemble is also in several towns scenes and flashback scenes. This would be a great show for someone who does not prefer to dance although we will be doing some square dancing. (Will be lots of fun) if you are a singer with limited dance skill and no interest in a lot of acting this is the ensemble for you. Should not be a huge rehearsal schedule for the ensemble.

This show is an Indianapolis premier and is one of the most romantic musicals ever written. Music by Jason Robert Brown.
