BREAKDOWN

[CADY HERON]
Female, any ethnicity. Adult Actor 18+ to play 17. A new junior at North Shore High School, Cady grew up in Africa and was homeschooled by her wildlife biologist parents. She is warm, bright, and strong enough to take on The Plastics. Looking for a girl with a great voice and good comic timing who can be the emotional heart of our story. Broadway mix with exceptional range.

[JANIS SARKISIAN]
Female, any ethnicity. Adult Actor 18+ to play 17. An “Art Freak” and social outcast, Janis is not afraid to be weird or make others uncomfortable. She paints herself as an objective observer, but, like so many of us, she longs to avenge the devastating events of eighth grade. Proficiency in an instrument like guitar, ukulele or keyboards would be a plus. Broadway alto with a rock belt.

[DAMIAN]
Male, any ethnicity. Adult Actor 18+ to play 17. Outgoing, gay, an active member of the student activities committee, Damian is a fiercely loyal friend to Janis and they have the close rapport of a comedy team. Damian loves a good show tune almost as much he loves as an unattended box of fundraising candy bars. Broadway Tenor.

[REGINA GEORGE]
Female, any ethnicity. Adult Actor 18+ to play 17. Regina is the Queen Bee of the Plastics. When she shines her light on you, you feel like the most important person in the world. When that light goes cold, you want to die. She is regal, still, and “hot”, but at her most vulnerable moments, she is just a kid in over her head. Broadway rock with an exceptional range.

[GRETCHEN WIENERS]
Female, any ethnicity. Adult Actor 18+ to play 17. Desperate to please Regina and to maintain her position in the Plastics, Gretchen is a nervous wreck. She is a “banker” meaning she befriends people to “bank” their secrets so she can trade them later for her own benefit. Her fragility at times is heartbreaking. Traditional Broadway with pop chops.

[KAREN SMITH]
Female, any ethnicity. Adult Actor 18+ to play 17. Karen is so physically beautiful that the other parts of her intellect and personality never had to develop. But she is essentially kind, relaxed and a generous laugher. Traditional Broadway with pop chops.

[MRS. HERON/MS. NORBURY/ MRS. GEORGE/]
Female, any ethnicity, 30-50. Actor play all three adult female roles. Mrs. Heron is Cady’s crunchy, intellectual mom who can’t understand why her daughter is devolving before her eyes. Ms. Norbury is Cady’s brittle, world-weary Calculus teacher who pushes Cady to be her smartest self. Mrs. George is Regina’s “cool mom.” She’s desperate to look young and feel like one of the teens. She’s also desperate for Regina not to repeat her mistakes. Looking for a great comic actress and singer to distinctly define these three characters. Eclectic Broadway vocal mix.

[MR. DUVALL]
Male, African-American, 30-50, the principal of North Shore High. Mr. Duvall may have once taught computers at Joliet penitentiary, but nothing prepared him for the harsh realities of out of control junior girls. Must be funny and a strong singer.

[AARON]
Male, any ethnicity. Adult Actor 18+ to play 18. A cute boy with a good moral compass and a backbone. He’s not immune to all the female attention he gets, but he’s not going to let himself be a pawn in their chess game either. Broadway and pop tenor.

[KEVIN GNAPOOR]
Male, Indian or Pakistani. Adult Actor 18+ to play 17. Kevin is the extremely driven captain of the North Shore Mathletes. He is a confident student, a suave virgin, and a decent rapper. Rap skills necessary and traditional Indian singing technique a plus.
