Casting Notes:

Relax can be any gender. Can be an animation, a puppet, or just an anthropomorphic character with costuming that nods to the appearance of an owl. Wolf Pup is a puppet or projection. There is a black male child needed to play Teach, who is only onstage for a moment at the end of the show. The other chapters may double as dancers/pit singers for production numbers.
