There are male and female roles for three teenagers (two female, one male), three males in their 30s-40s, one female in her 30s, and the timeless River portrayed by a female. Besides these main characters, there are plenty of openings for the townsfolk.
Auditions consist of cold readings from the script and singing 32 measures of a song of your choice.
25 years ago tragedy happened in this small community of Monroe County and others around it near the Mississippi River valley. But out of the ashes was born something powerful and heart warming. A community of friends and neighbors moved to higher ground and rebuilt their town of "Meyerville" (Sound similar to Valmeyer?).
As college students, the composer/writer team of Peter Mills and Cara Reichel visited this area in 1993 and interviewed many who experience the 1000 year flood that year. They created a beautiful script and music composition that clearly shows the heart of what brought this community back together.
MASC produced The Flood once before with outstanding reviews in 2007. So as a community that continues to support each other, MASC has decided to revive this production again September 20-23 and 27-30.Please note that two extra performances have been added on Thursday nights.
