Well, here's your chance to hear them present the dream roles they will never perform in a staged production!

MisCast Cabaret is a three-performance event featuring Depot Theater talent performing songs from roles, in which, they would never be cast. Changing the roles can alter the dynamic or meaning of a song, which creates a new perspective for the audience. The results are sometimes thought-provoking and often hilarious.
