On The Stage with Josh

Thursday Oct. 17th 7:00 pm

Puyallup, wa

Joshua Castille, a “Spring Awakening” Broadway vet at the age of 24, has done a lot of things since he took on the stage of Broadway in 2015. He’s played two massive title roles: Quasimodo in the “Hunchback of Notre Dame” at the Fifth Avenue Theater in Seattle, and in “Romeo & Juliet” as Romeo. And he’s Deaf.

Josh has taken the world on by storm through signing songs in ASL and starting up a new production company (Hypernovas Productions) with his creative partner, Jules Dameron. And she’s directing Josh’s show this night.

Be ready for a night full of gender-breaking and entertaining songs that will make you love music in an entirely different way.
