For the first time ever, SSTI is casting local children to be a part of our legendary summer productions. For our fifteenth anniversary season, SSTI's two productions require children in leading roles. This is an opportunity for students to work on a professional level, with extraordinary high school students from across the country and New York designers and directors.

There is NO TUITION for this opportunity.


Casting Breakdown

Winthrop Paroo: A shy young boy who speaks with a lisp. Strong actor and singer. Any ethnicity, height around 4'6", Age 8-12

Amaryllis: She is the slightly bratty girl who studies piano with Marian. Amaryllis should be a good actor and roughly the same size as Winthrop. Any ethnicity, age 8-12



- Both roles will be double cast and they will alternate weekends, playing another smaller role when not featured. 

- While all children must be available for all rehearsals on a full-time, professional schedule June 7-July 3, we will attempt to only call the children when needed and necessary.

- Production directed by Broadway veteran and University of the Arts Musical Theatre program head, Jacob Brent.
