Seeking the following only:

Male, 20s – 30s. Particularly seeking a performer of mixed-race Asian descent. To understudy ensemble members and the leading role of SAMMY KIMURA (Role played by Telly Leung—Sammy is an industrious and dutiful son but longs to find his own way in the world. Whip-smart and irrepressibly friendly, he secretly fears he will never measure up, particularly since he disappoints his father when he doesn't get into law school. The internment provides him the opportunity to become an enthusiastic and effective community leader. He goes on to face unthinkable carnage as a platoon sergeant in World War II, earning him a Purple Heart). Strong tenor with strong dance ability. ENSEMBLE
