Auditions for "Weedpatch", October 2017

North Cambridge Family Opera is holding auditions for all roles in the world premiere of Weedpatch! This NCFO commission, with music by Paul Phillips of Stanford University, and lyrics by Grammy-winning storyteller Bill Harley, is based on the historical Weedpatch School, built and run by Oklahoma migrants escaping the Dust Bowl who were shunned by the settled Californians.
