Casting Young Performers 16-23 For Virtual Concert With Audra and Salazar



Joshua Colley (LES MISERABLES, NEWSIES) will star as David in a virtual concert of the new musical STICKS & STONES. George Salazar (BE MORE CHILL, GODSPELL) will appear as King Saul. Six-time Tony Award, and Emmy & Grammy winner Audra McDonald will make a special guest appearance as Nizevet, David's mother. The concert is being done as a fundraiser for Lady Gaga's and her mother Cynthia Germanotta's BORN THIS WAY FOUNDATION.

STICKS & STONES (by Emmy/Grammy winner John McDaniel and Scott Logsdon) adapts the Biblical story of David and his triumph over Goliath to address teen bullying. The musical was recently presented in a private industry reading in Nashville and was the winner of the 2017 Florida Theatrical Association's New Musical Discovery series.

It will be broadcast in October. Coinciding with October's National Bullying Prevention Month, the virtual feature will serve as a benefit to youth wellness with proceeds going to support Born This Way Foundation.

The creators are actively seeking 96 performers between the ages of 16 and 23 of all ethnicities, body types, and gender identities and are very interested in performers with disabilities, including D/deaf actors who use ASL. All auditioning should look like high school students.

Audition submissions are scheduled to end Friday, August 21.
