How far would you go for your child? For Genevra and Joshua Bradley, the question is no longer hypothetical. Their three-year-old son, Mac, is next on the waiting list to get into the Bright Ideas Early Childhood Development Academy—and everyone knows once you’re in there, your life will unfold with glorious ease. Josh and Gen have had to scramble all their lives to get this far…and now they are one fatal dinner party away from the ultimate success as parents: The Right Preschool. You may never look at pre-school—or pesto—the same way again…

"MTC believes in the transformative power of the arts and recognizes that diversity in casting leads to a richer and more authentic storytelling experience."


About Miscast 

Miscast Theatre Company, LLC was founded by Alejandro Pesina Ortega, Rebekah Williams, and Ivan Ortega during the summer of 2022. Alejandro, Rebekah, and Ivan wanted to create a safe space for marginalized performers who were often overlooked in favor of maintaining the "usual" or "standard" cast lists. Having experienced this firsthand, their mission is to provide this for all San Antonio, TX local artists.



"MTC's mission is to revolutionize the theatrical landscape in San Antonio, TX, and beyond. We are committed to providing a safe and empowering space for marginalized performers who have often been overlooked in favor of conventional casting practices. We are dedicated to breaking down barriers and embracing diversity in all its forms."



"Our vision is to challenge traditional norms and break away from the constraints of typecasting. We aspire to empower San Antonio's local artists by creating a safe space where they can explore their talents and bring unique perspectives to the stage."


"The company name really is a misnomer; it’s not that we will choose to cast people “incorrectly” or “by error or mistake,” but instead that we intend to do the deeper thinking and visualizing needed to find new routes forward. It is our hope that those fresh avenues will create more equity of opportunity for all involved in the arts who may have been historically excluded based on cultural and ethnic backgrounds, socioeconomic status, ability/accessibility level, or gender identity.” - Miscast Team
