The only character that is required to be able to play an instrument is the actor playing Johnny. The rest of the characters are not required to be able to play, though if you can it is beneficial. If you can play ANY of the instruments on this list, or any others, please let us know! And please do not let a lack of instrumental ability deter you from auditioning.

If you are a musician, please bring musical instruments(s) to auditions to demonstrate ability. Playing an instrument is not a requirement of auditions.

About the show:
From the iconic songbook of Johnny Cash comes this unique musical about love and faith, struggle and success, rowdiness and redemption, and home and family. More than two dozen classic hits—including “I Walk The Line,” “A Boy Named Sue,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” and the title tune—performed by a multi-talented cast, paint a musical portrait of The Man in Black that promises to be a foot-stompin’, crowd-pleasin’ salute to a unique musical legend! Though he is never impersonated, Johnny Cash’s remarkable life story is told through his music, climaxing in a concert that will both move and exhilarate!
