Nuestra Casita (Our Little House)


Nuestra Casita is a warm-hearted and exciting new musical! Join Amy, Chuck, and Pablo as they discover how to fundraise a local restaurant back to life.

Character Descriptions:

AMY CHEN – early 20s, plays 8. The leader of the pack; determined, idealistic, a bit headstrong, inspiring. (Soprano, Ab3 – E5, needs to have a good belt on an E5)

PABLO GARCÍA – early 20s, plays 8. The heart of the show. A little unsure of himself, still growing into his own skin. (Baritenor, B2 – G#4)

CHUCK BUTLER – early 20s, plays 8. One of those kids who you just never know what he’s gonna say yet. A little absent, scattered, well-intentioned, very funny. (Tenor, Eb3 – Bb4)

MRS. GARCÍA  – 30s. Pablo’s mother. Obviously a loving parent, if a bit stern. Also plays a number of other roles, so should be able to make strong physical choices. Doesn’t need to sing that much. (Mezzo, D4 – D5 doesn’t have any solo singing, only around 16 bars of ensemble singing)

We Tell Their Story


In every age and every century, the world has been shaped by the acts of brave souls who have dared to think differently and defy the status quo. History has been formed by a series of stories, both large and small. WE TELL THEIR STORY brings American history to musical life using examples from vibrant musical theatre. Students will witness John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and Alexander Hamilton crafting the birth of a nation (1776), the divide in rural Virginia during America’s Civil War (Shenandoah), Emma Goldman rallying for human rights, and Henry Ford’s creation of the assembly line (Ragtime), the turn of the century newsboys of New York City waging a labor war (Newsies) and formation of a territory to a state (Oklahoma!). History has never been this engaging!

Character Descriptions:

WOMAN 1: Female identifying soprano (any ethnicity)  

WOMAN 2: Female identifying alto (any ethnicity)

MAN 1: Male identifying tenor/baritone (BIPOC)

MAN 2: Male identifying high baritone (any ethnicity)
