CASTING INFORMATION

The cast consists of the seven castaways: “Gilligan, the Skipper too, the Millionaire and his wife, the Movie Star, the Professor and Mary Ann”. There are also two swing roles that will cover additional character roles and are discretionary in gender and vocal range.

We encourage all performers who feel they meet the role requirements to audition. We practise colour blind casting, and specific roles will be open to being considered as gender diverse roles – in which both male and female artists will be considered to play the role.
