To say that this show was difficult to cast would be an extreme understatement.  We were overwhelmed with the amount of new talent we saw, as well as the growth from veteran performers and could have cast the show at least twice with the incredible talent that we had, but ultimately, it came down to splitting hairs over vocal quality, look, the chemistry of the cast makeup, the particular qualities of the actors, and, of course, conflicts. We are thrilled with the cast that has been assembled and cannot wait to start this process with you. Our first read and sing through will be Saturday, May 25that 2:30p at the Playhouse Rehearsal Hall (1158 East 12thStreet).  Kate will be emailing you all prior to that with some more information, so keep an eye out for it.  We look forward to seeing you all then!

All our best,

Kate, Andrew, Dom, Emily, & James


Thanks to all who auditioned for 42nd Street!


The cast below could have included many more of you if conflicts, cast size and roles held did not hold us back from casting really talented performers. PLEASE come back and audition again.

 To the cast – We are excited to work with you on this wonderful musical that closes the EP’s 102nd season. Please look for an email in a week or so with details of our first rehearsal and more information, including additional roles to be assigned. If you have questions, please contact Almi at 814-602-8747.

 A special shout out to thank Heidi Sheehan for her work in preparing you all for the auditions!

Thank you to everyone who auditioned.  We had a GREAT turn out.  Unfortunately, we couldn’t cast everyone.  We had a lot of AMAZING talent which made the casting decisions very difficult.  

We hope you will all come out again for future productions.

Congratulations to those of you who were cast! We are excited to get started.

Our first rehearsal will be in mid April. We will be in touch soon with the specifics. 

Ryan, Brendan, Melissa & Patrick
