Casting Call!

JM Drama is presenting Big, The Musical!
Looking to be involved in the performing arts? JM Drama will be presenting BIG, The Musical August 1-3, 8-10 (2024) at The Registry Theatre! We are looking for people
interested in performing.


Josh is sick of being an awkward kid. At a carnival, he makes a wish to
the Zoltar machine to become “big.” To his shock, his wish is granted. After an
understandably awkward beginning, Josh is
forced to do “adult” things, like getting a job
and a girlfriend. In the end, he discovers that
there’s much more to being an adult than he
bargained for and learns that we must all grow
up at our own pace, in our own time. Based on
the hit 1988 film starring Tom Hanks.
