And here’s the cast list of characters (some performers can play two roles):

  • Basie – A lonely upright bass. Basie has a song that’s teased and excluded by the other instruments
  • Flute or Clarinet – A snobby, bullying wind instrument
  • Violin – A snobby, bullying string instrument
  • Trombone – A snobby, bullying brass instrument
  • Conductor – A self-important director of the orchestra. The Conductor doesn’t stop the bullying
  • Raven – A friendly, inclusive, and wise bird who teaches Basie to be proud and self-confident
  • Animals – Friendly pond dwellers who want to include Basie
  • Maestro – Open-minded and kind orchestra director who helps Basie understand how important and versatile upright basses are
  • Tuba – A shy, large brass instrument who, despite being bullied in the past, is welcomed

We’re also enrolling volunteers to help with directing, set designing, costume design/construction, lighting design, stagehands, and community outreach.
