Work is underway on a summer musical production to be filmed right here in Borger.The “Kissless, the musical” cast has started rehearsals for the musical production. Production for will take place from July 7th through August 9th, with performances open to the public on August 3rd and 4th.The Borger Economic Development Board of Directors approved to give Chat Productions a $75,000 grant to help the company prepare to film “Kissless, the Musical”. “Kissless” is the story of two very different people forced to live together for the summer and the unlikely relationship that develops...to the dismay of their friends and families. With a raucous cast of Abercrombie Jocks, misfit Goths, and brainy Nerds, Kissless tugs on heart strings between belly-laughs. A genre-hopping score paces this completely original look at what it is like to be a teen.Auditions were held in New York City and San Marcos, bringing in a cast of almost 40 people to Borger. Cast members range from ages 17 to 27 years old, mostly students in high school and college. Along with the grant, Borger EDC is providing an office space to set up a Borger office for the company, with one full-time employee for their Borger office. A second employee will be hired by January of 2013. So Borger can expect more productions in the near future from Chat Productions.
