Project: I Will: The Musical
Gender:Male & Female
Age Range:20 - 45
A musical based on the life of Dr. Willie Ong, with music, lyrics, and libretto written by Antonino Rommel Ramilo (San Pedro Calungsod the Musical), is currently in development.
Entitled I Will: The Musical, the production will be filmed inside a theater and will stream online for free. According to Ramilo, even though it will just be a one-time show, the process leading up to filming will be the same as a stage production, both for regular rehearsals and tech week. Talent fees for actors will also be adjusted to at least 6 times the usual per show rate.
He also says that once theaters begin to reopen, the company plans to tour the show around the country and abroad, with a scaled down production compared to the filmed version.
Interested parties should prepare songs that will display their vocal strength and storytelling abilities. Suggested songs are from the musicals Dear Evan Hansen, Wicked, Les Misérables, The Phantom of the Opera, Hamilton, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
I Will: The Musical is holding online auditions for musical theater actors who can play the ensemble tracks.
