  166 total actors (this number includes 27 under age 18 actors who were in the cast of Seussical, who were enrolled in a class.  There were also 4 under 18 actors in Abigail Dreary, 6 in Road to Hades and 1 in the Nature Line.)
  92 men,  74 women
  41 Equity actors,  125 Non-equity actors
26  Equity men,  15 Equity women
  162 local actors, 4 non-local actors

So many people contributed shows they'd seen this month!  I've also been happy to receive results from producers, directors, actors who were in shows.  Here are the folks who sent results: Melissa Hillman, Sasha Hnatkovich, Amy Prosser, Tiffany Cothran, Andrew Black, Dale Albright, Lauren Bloom, Don Hardwick, Kendra Oberhauser, Katherine Goldman, Lisa-Marie Newton, Roselyn Hallett, Alona Bach and Nina Meehan
