From the Fringe program:

Director: Connor Joseph and Cuinn Joseph

Cast: Béla Gyarmati, Kara Joseph, Connor Joseph, Fiona de Koning, Cuinn Joseph, Wendel Shoemaker, Mikaela Domish

When four actors are frustrated about being cast as understudies in a new Broadway musical, they find themselves plotting to kill the leads for their own shot at stardom.

This lighthearted comedy has everything theatre: pretentious theatre traditionalists, ambitious up-and-coming actors, an overly flamboyant director and a Jesus vs. Jesus sword fight.

Understudies teaches valuable lessons by highlighting the importance of a positive self-image and demonstrating the significant impact a good attitude can have on a murder plot.
