SYNOPSIS:
The Theory of Relativity is a collection of seemingly unrelated songs, scenes, and monologues that come together to show the interconnected nature of humanity. These stories center around finding your true identity and discovering your place in the world. From falling in and out of love to allergies, the wide array of characters take the audience on a journey, experiencing the wonders of human connection.
 
CASTING BREAKDOWN:
We are looking for a diverse group of musical theatre actors to fill 8-10 roles. Approximately two of each: sopranos, mezzos/altos, tenors, and baritones. All roles have vocal solos, some also have monologues. All roles are open. We acknowledge that many roles fall on gender binary, but invite transgender and non-binary performers to audition with songs they most identify with.
