42ND STREET Cast List

First of all, let us start off by say­ing that this show was a cast­ing night­mare!!  Not in a bad way, because the tal­ent was out­stand­ing. That is the rea­son it was a night­mare. It was not as cut and dry as a lot of audi­tion processes.  We truly wish that we could include more peo­ple and have a cast of 40, but eco­nom­i­cally that is not feasible.

We want to pub­licly express regret to those who did not make the final cut. It is not because of  lack of tal­ent on anyone’s part. Choices are made on the terms of the total look of the com­pany and being true to the period. For instance, you might be sur­prised at our choice for the role of Andy, who in the orig­i­nal show is a male char­ac­ter. How­ever, since Andy is the chore­o­g­ra­pher for “Pretty Lady,” the 42ND STREET show within a show, the actor must be extremely flu­ent in tap danc­ing. Hence our choice of Jen­nifer Hast­ings to play the part.

We truly admire each and every one of you who audi­tioned. The improve­ment from night to night was over­whelm­ing, and it was a plea­sure to behold. We sin­cerely hope that EVERYBODY will con­tinue to help SCT thrive in future pro­duc­tions, and look for­ward to work­ing with ALL of you in the future.

Most Sin­cerely,
Jim Cole­man, Direc­tor
Eve­lyn Bar­ney, Chore­o­g­ra­pher
Shawn Car­ring­ton, Assis­tant Director
