And our male lead is...

Playing the role of 17 year old Chance McCoy will be Kyle Riabko. We are very, very excited that Kyle is coming on board. An accomplished singer/musician/writer, he will bring an incredible depth to the role.

Here's his bio from his website:
n a short ten years Kyle Riabko has transformed from a precocious singer/guitar prodigy to the lead actor in the Broadway musical, Spring Awakening.

Kyle Riabko started his performing career at the tender age of ten. The young singer/guitarist started touring his native Canada during his summer holidays with musicians more than twice his age. At 15 years old he signed his first record deal with Aware/Columbia and his debut single “What Did I Get Myself Into” went top ten at AAA radio in the U.S. Kyle spent the next three years performing in Japan, the U.S., Canada and Australia opening for the likes of John Mayer, Keb Mo, Buddy Guy, and Maroon 5. Along the way, he’s dedicated his time and talent to various charities including Telemiracle and Song for Africa.

Kyle’s love for acting also started at a young age. He directed and acted in two of his own indie films at the age of 14 and went on to play the lead in numerous high school plays. He’s currently a principal actor in the upcoming season of Instant Star, the teen drama from the makers of Degrassi: The Next Generation. But his most astonishing feat to date is winning the part of Melchior, the thoughtful student heartthrob of Spring Awakening, the eight-time Tony-award winning musical. Riabko’s current residence is in New York and spends his free time songwriting, producing and recording. His music has been recorded by a variety of artists and he has placements in both TV and film.
