News   Jeremy Dobrish to Direct Tour of Cyber-Musical Virtually Me!; Casting Announced
 
Jeremy Dobrish will direct a national tour of Virtually Me!, which is billed as "an entirely original, educational musical for today's blogging, emailing, Facebooking, IM'ing, and texting generation."

The cast will comprise Aaron Catano, Graham Douglass, Ashley Tobias, Dara Hartman and Wade Mowles.

Virtually Me!, which features music by Jeff Thomson, lyrics by Jordan Mann and a book by Jeremy Desmon and Dobrish, launches its national tour Sept. 27 in various cities throughout New York before moving on to Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Ohio, South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Vermont, Georgia and Kentucky.

"Desperate to stay in the loop 24/7," press notes state, "freshmen classmates Lindsay, Zeke, Jasper, and Chloe of Wi-Fi High are constantly 'logged on.' Virtually Me! tackles the issues surrounding technology today in a fun and entertaining way, reminding us all that while these modern tools are totally awesome and keep us in the know, at the same time, they need to be used responsibly." The musical is appropriate for children in grades 4-9.

The production also features choreography by Wendy Seyb, musical direction by Aaron Jodoin, orchestrations by Danny Larsen, scenic design by Rob Odorisio, costume design by Bobby Pearce and projection/video design by Chris Kateff.

Matt Murphy produces. For booking information contact Barbara Sandek at TheatreworksUSA, (212) 647-1100, ext. 122 or e-mail bsandek@twusa.org.
