Character Breakdown

*The character breakdown is from the MTI website. We have removed the traditional gendered casting qualifications (but left the characters listed pronouns) and want to make sure that we include any and all genders, races, ethnic groups, body types, and abilities that we can, FOR REAL FOR REAL. This is coming from me, Tosha Marie, director, choreographer, owner and CEO. It's happening and it will be a safe inclusive space for all.
