Schenectady-based Upaya Productions
raised their goal of $22,000 on Kickstarter last year to upstart the production
of Cassandra, The Musical. Now, the Greek myth comes to life as a sung-through musical for a two-day
showing at Proctors this September. And auditions are now open!
Upaya Productions’ Patrick Longo sealed the deal with Proctors
before the holidays and is now holding auditions for the multi-genre musical
exploring the Greek myth of Cassandra. Longo’s imagining infuses blues, jazz,
rock, and pop for a unique local musical production.
