Breakdown

Seeking:

UNDERSTUDY/STANDBY:
1 talented woman of any ethnicity for understudy/standby position.

Also seeking 4 women who can sing, move well and have strong comic timing for future replacements of the following role which have already been CAST:

BETTY JEAN
Role CAST. Female, Adult [to play 18 and 28]. Betty Jean is the self-anointed clown of the group, always vying for attention from her best friend Cindy Lou. Cindy Lou steals Betty Jean’s boyfriend away, causing a lot of the friction at the prom; she holds this grudge against Cindy Lou, until they make up at the 10-year reunion. (Alto with strong low range)

CINDY LOU
Female, Adult [to play 18 and 28]: Cindy Lou is the "bad girl" of the group. It seems that things always go her way, making Betty Jean crazy. She makes the biggest change between Acts I and II, having learned the lessons of true love and loss. (Mezzo Soprano with belt; sings melody line on most songs)

MISSY
Female, Adult [to play 18 and 28]: Always the over-achiever of the group, Missy is the one to cover for mistakes and is always ready to jump in and save the day. Head of the prom decorations committee, and absolutely smitten with her music teacher. She has been best friends with Suzy since elementary school. (Soprano with wide range and very high vocals; also needs ability to belt/mix)

SUZY
Female, Adult [to play 18 and 28]: Gum-chewing Suzy is happy-go-lucky, a little giddy, and a little silly. She finds great pleasure in everything she does; the sillier it is, the more fun she finds it. Her best friend is Missy. (Please note: We are not looking for a stereotypical "ditzy blonde.") (Mezzo Alto with a sweet, soulful sound, and big belts)
