Casting breakdown is as follows:
1. JULIUS PETERSON 30 to 35 years old, all ethnicities male. Average height, slim to average build. Julius is one of the youngest and most respected maestros among his peers. He sees the good in people through music and bares an undeniable talent for bringing classical music to all generations. His biggest flaw is that he tends to be overly ambitious and extremely hard on himself when facing his failures, so much so that his vices keep him from being the most outstanding maestro the world has ever seen. LEAD

2. ASTOR 60 to 65 years old, all ethnicities male. Short to average height, any build. Astor is the lifelong owner of the theater. He knows Julius personally through his father, Lucas, and mother, Julia. Astor even employed Lucas as a Lighting Tech and Julius as a stagehand when he came of age. He’s a kind-hearted man that has gotten bitter in his old age. He’s about to give up hope for the theater and doesn’t want the responsibility of keeping his father’s legacy alive anymore. He’s tired and wants to move on. SUPPORTING

3. JULIA 25 to 30 years old, all ethnicities female. Average height, slim build. Julia is a remarkable Contemporary Dancer who choreographs all her dances based on the music she is given. She is a caring and nurturing soul through and through while also being very dominant and absolute. Julia gives no excuses and excepts non in return. Julia’s mindset is to try, do, or fail; doing nothing is not an option. Her work ethic is in the top one percent of her field, making it extremely hard for others to stand out in her presence. However, Julia is also a humble soul who is not afraid of sharing the spotlight. SUPPORTING

4. LUCAS 25 to 30 years old, all ethnicities male. Tall, slim/muscular build. Lucas is a young man, wiser beyond his years. He cares for himself like a 40-year-old man with the wisdom to spare. He has a heart of gold while also not being someone who lets people walk all over him. He’s generous in his knowledge and falls in the hopeless romantic category. He has a simple life and wants simple things out of life. He is also a Stage Lighting Technician at the theater. It’s the only job he has ever had and or wanted. He’s great at his job but not so much at other things. He rests easily in his flaws while always looking to fix them. SUPPORTING

5. MR. CARLSON 50 to 55 years old, all ethnicities male. Average height, average build. Mr. Carlson is a lifelong friend of Julius’s father, Lucas, and appointed godfather. He is also his right-hand man and traveling stage manager. He treats Julius as if he is his son and cares deeply for his well-being. Mr. Carlson’s job as a stage manager is his life and has always been. He is very forward and speaks with intent. He can come off a bit stand-offish but has a heart of gold if he trusts an individual. SUPPORTING

6. TEENAGE JULIUS 18 to 19 years old, all ethnicities male. Average height, slim. Teenage Julius is very unsure of himself and trying to find his way. He is a hard worker with huge ambitions. His skills and talents are light years above others at his age, but he hasn’t started to believe in himself yet. SUPPORTING

7. OFFICIANT 40 to 45 years old, all ethnicities male. Tall, average build. The priest has been asked to wed Julia and Lucas in holy matrimony. He is also a close friend of the family and works at the theater part-time. SUPPORTING
