Join us this summer as we premiere a brand new musical! MCBRIDE’S CALL is the story of a young man ripped from his Irish homeland through the betrayal of his family. Justin finds himself a servant in an upper crust British home, but using his wit and charm, he climbs the ranks and makes a life for himself. When Ireland is struck with famine, Justin must decide if he will follow the call to mend his broken family and change the plight of his nation.

Full of original Irish music and a gripping story, MCBRIDE’S CALL offers a wide range of acting, singing and dancing opportunities. We are especially seeking Irish dancers and strong male vocalists. Come and be a part of the creative process as we bring this new musical to the stage for the first time!
