Premise: SuperYou the Musical is a modern pop/rock musical about a female comic book artist who learns to love herself and reconnect to her dreams when her own superheroine creations come to life.
Principal Singer/ Actors:
Lead role. Looks late twenties/ early thirties. Rock bari-tenor, excellent hearthrob falsetto. Jay is the charming rocker boyfriend with undeniable talent and sex appeal. He’s the guy that girls can’t help but fall in love with. Must be an an excellent actor. He should come across as authentic and not be played as a one-dimensional bad boy. Guitar player a huge plus. All ethnicities considered.
1 female understudy to cover all the superheroines (see descriptions below), but mostly RISE (who is currently played by the book/music/lyrics writer). Perfect covers would be strong singers who can play a stringed instrument, preferably violin, and can move. All ethnicities considered.
Looks mid 20’s to 30’s. The quirky "misfit nerd" turned cool with high-functioning autism. Enthusiastic and joyful in pig-tails and school-girl drag, she is decked out with tech gadgets and gears. Able to shred on electric violin (or any other “geeky” instrument -- ie: accordion, any stringed instrument, recorder, melodica etc.) With her "mind power," she controls time and telekinetically moves objects. The protagonist calls upon Rise when she feels like she doesn't fit in. Rise helps the lead character to celebrate her own unique “special-ness” with freedom and joy. CAST
Looks 30’s. In outrageous “school teacher” drag, she is the short-fused, sharp-witted, type-A ball-buster. Wise-cracking with Bette Midler sass. Think Karen from "Will and Grace." With her superpower of "truth," she wears magic, “lie detector" glasses which reveal the truth of what people are actually saying despite the words that come out of their mouths. CAST
Looks mid 20’s to 30’s. High belt and high harmonies. British femme fatale of the CHIX, she is a sultry secret agent (think “Bond girl”) in steam punk (retro-futuristic, neo Victorian) accoutrement. With her superpower of "perspective," she is an extraordinary aerialist, who sees the big picture of every situation. CAST
Looks mid 20's to 30's. Punk rock superheroine with spikes, chains, a mohawk, and chunky boots who has the ability to manipulate fire. She has a butch, James Dean quality -- few words, but with potent, fiery vocal ability. With her superpower of "resilience," she is quick to pick herself up from any situation like a rocket, or a phoenix rising from the ashes. Young Katie first conceives of this punk rock superheroine to give her the blast of empowerment and “fight” she needs to stand up to bullies. CAST
Looks 30’s-40’s. Fabulous, full-figured diva with a big voice and a no-nonsense attitude. She owns her assuredness and shares her wisdom freely. With her superpower of "confidence," she has the ability to grow in size to stomp out her foes. Ima-Mazing appears when Katie needs to be the embodiment of self-confidence and self-worth. CAST
