PLEASE FOLKS, MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE!!! The highly anticipated Broadway revival of the legendary musical The Music Man is searching for a young boy to play one of the featured main roles in the entire show…. "Winthrop Paroo".
This Sunday, Telsey & Company Casting will be hosting an Open Casting Call for the role. To prepare for the audition, here's the breakdown:
