Audition for spring musical theater show

The CWRU Footlighters is a student musical theater group dedicated to bringing arts to the Case Western Reserve University campus and giving students a creative outlet outside classes.

Auditions to join the cast of the spring show, “Be More Chill,” will take place next weekend.

In recent years, the group has produced such big-name shows as “Avenue Q,” “RENT,” “Sweeney Todd,” “Next to Normal” and “Spring Awakening.”
