The Roswell Youth Theatre cast includes 30 students led by Leslie Kelley, Jane Hendrix, and Nancy Whitehead Brown.
"This cast is extremely talented and has worked very hard from the first rehearsal. They arrive at rehearsals prepared and exude the excitement and energy during rehearsals that is needed to shine in their performances. The audience will truly be entertained and impressed by this show and cast" says Nancy Brown, RYT supervisor/choreographer.
