Broadway actors Julia Haubner and Ian Saraceni have joined the cast of The Perfect Fit, a new family musical featuring book, music and lyrics by twelve-year-old musical sensation Joshua Turchin (The Little Mermaid Live-To-Film, Forbidden Broadway Salutes Carol Channing, A Christmas Story National Tour, TrevorLive, The Pill). The production will be making its world premiere in a staged developmental production that will run August 11 - 23 as part of the Rave Theater Festival.

Directed by Broadway veteran Garth Kravits (Drowsy Chaperone, Gettin' the Band Back Together), The Perfect Fit will run at the Teatro Latea Theater, at the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center, 107 Suffolk Street, 2nd Floor.

The Perfect Fit follows Alexandra, an ambitious teen actor with a powerful voice who grows concerned that she is getting too old to play a child and too young to play an adult. While auditioning for a dynamic musical, Alexandra is sabotaged by a vindictive stage parent who would do anything for her daughter to succeed. Through the love and support of her mom, sister and friends, she learns how to move past the experience. The Perfect Fitspotlights that hard work often includes twists & turn and ups & downs, but rewards in unexpected ways.

The Perfect Fit features choreography by Anna Noble (Carousel, The Flamingo Kid, After Midnight), Stage Management by Ritchard Druther (Heathers, A Christmas Story National Tour, Radio City Christmas Spectacular), scenic/costume design by Jeremy Bailey-Smith; sound design by Nina Luther and casting by Arnold J. Mungioli, CSA, Mungioli Theatricals, Inc. The Music Director is Steven Cuevas (Once On This Island, Anastasia, Kinky Boots); Music Supervisor is Eric Fotre Leach (Come From Away); Vocal Supervisor is Julia Mendelsohn.

The festival will run August 9-25th at Teatro SEA and Teatro LaTea Theatres at The Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center (107 Suffolk Street, New York, NY 10002). Spearheaded by Tony Award-winning Broadway Producer, Ken Davenport, the festival aims to provide theatre-makers with an outlet to get their shows up on a New York stage.
