Award winning, Vital Theatre Company, of Angelina Ballerina! The Musical and Pinkalicious! The Musical, seek a cast of strong actor/singers with spunk, charm, and brilliant comedic timing, for the new musical FLIGHT SCHOOL.
It’s the first day of Flight School, where they teach birds to fly. Penguin has the soul of an eagle and is ready to live on the wind. But he wasn’t built to soar, as the other birds constantly remind him. Penguin’s spirit won’t be grounded. With some friends of a feather, and a little help on the technical parts, Penguin follows his dreams to flip, flap, fly! With book by Cara Lustik, music by David Mallamud, and lyrics by Joshua H. Cohen, Flight School The Musical is based on the book Flight School from best-selling author Lita Judge.
