Looking for 4 Versatile Actors who sing, who will be portraying multiple characters, many based on historical figures who were involved in some way in the Underground Railroad. Through narration, monologues, vignettes, and songs from the period, Oh Freedom! depicts the greatest collaboration against racism in America prior to the Civil Rights movement. The “docu-drama” style is not a museum piece. Far from it -- we hope the play will engage the young audience to make connections between history and their own lives. All actors must be able to sing in harmony, a capella.
