back stage crew and a group has been hired out of Las Vegas to make sure the ghosts are so

The cast has been rehearsing since early September, and Linn says the fact that they're all

so good made this show easier to tackle than it would have been otherwise.

80 people auditioned for this show, including young and old.  In fact, there are families

that have 3 or more members in this show.

Linn has been on the board for 20 years, and this is the biggest show he's seen done in

Cherokee.   He added that the key to putting a show this big together in a small community

has been surrounding himself with talented co-directors that know their stuff including: a

vocal director, a band director, orchestra conductor and choreographer.
