From one of musical theatre's most exciting new composers comes Ordinary Days, a refreshingly honest and funny musical about making real connections in the city that never sleeps (but probably should at some point).
Ordinary Days tells the story of four young New Yorkers whose lives intersect as they search for fulfillment, happiness, love and cabs. Through a score of vibrant and memorable songs, their experiences ring startlingly true to life. Ordinary Days is an original musical for anyone who's ever struggled to appreciate the simple things in a complex place. With equal doses of humor and poignancy, it celebrates how 8.3 million individual stories combine in unexpected ways to make New York City such a unique and extraordinary home.
Thank you to our Production Sponsor, The Public Theater of San Antonio, for generously donating the use of Cellar Theater for our production of Ordinary Days.

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