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.

About Big:

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.
