Casting Director's note: "All roles are truly ensemble roles and everyone will not only play their own character but also help create scenery, atmosphere, as well as playing a host of other characters. While there will be singing in the show, this is not a musical and the actors do not need to be incredibly strong singers. Strong physicality required."
