Staged Reading
AGVA Guest Artists Contract
(Members of AGMA and AEA are eligible as well as non-union actors. Compensation is $1,000 Neg.)

This is a full-length opera-musical. The piece is sung through with large amounts of singing and stage time for all performers. It is truly an ensemble piece. All performers not only perform their roles but also are an ensemble singing and movement for the other characters. All should be excellent musicians.
