Subject line: Prom Casting [INSERT ROLE HERE]
THE AWESOME 80s PROM is the hit Off-Broadway interactive experience in the style of Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding, set at Wanaget High’s Senior Prom… in 1989. Performs on Saturday nights. Performers have the opportunity to join AEA.
ALL ROLES: Seeking exuberant performers who are skilled improvisational actor/comedians. Must have strong comedic instincts and the ability to ‘work a room’. MUST BELIEVABLY PLAY A HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR.
SEEKING FOR IMMEDIATE CONSIDERATION:
[BLAKE] The Captain of the Football Team. Charming, egotistical jock. Think “Jake” in 16 Candles.
[FENDER] The Bad Boy. Mean, defensive, loud. Think Judd Nelson in The Breakfast Club.
[BEEF] A Football player. Big and intimidating, but not too bright. Think Chris Farley.
[JOHNNY HUGHES] The DJ. Extremely charismatic host who can warm up a crowd. Runs dance contest, etc. Stand up comedians, karaoke hosts, etc. all encouraged to audition. Must have high energy and an infectious energy that can keep a party going. CAN LOOK OLDER (UP TO LATE 20s)
[LOUIS] The Nerd. Introverted, computer geek. Think Anthony Michael Hall in 16 Candles.
[MISSY] The Head of the Prom Committee. Perfect. Way too perky. Think Reese Witherspoon in Election.
[THE HEATHERS] Cheerleader #1 and #2. Whitley’s backup cheerleader. Must cheer/dance.
[KERRIE] The Spaz. Petite. A sweet but hyper nerd. In love with Blake. Surprisingly cute, once she removes the glasses and headgear.
