Announcing the Casts for the 10th Annual Underground New Play Festival

Angie Toomsen

Well, this was fun! Thanks, everyone, for your enthusiasm and wonderful audition videos! And thanks to the writers and directors for the smooth casting process. This is the first time in history we don’t have to say “to those who weren’t cast, etc.” because EVERYONE IS CAST IN SOMETHING.* That was the goal! Congrats all!

The 2020 TCR Underground New Play Festival takes place May 16th and 17th. Get all the details and snag your spots here: https://www.theatrecr.org/event/underground-new-play-festival-online/
