WE ARE LOOKING FOR EQUITY AND NON-EQUITY PERFORMERS
Cindy Lou: She knows she is the prettiest girl at Springfield High. She knows she will be named Prom Queen and acts out against her best friend Betty Jean when things don’t go her way. She makes the biggest change between Act 1 & 2, having learned the lessons of true love and loss.
MEZZO SOPRANO BELT– sings lead line on most songs. Among the songs she sings are: ‘Allegheny Moon’, ‘Son of a Preacher Man’, ‘Maybe’.
Betty Jean: The slightly put-upon class clown, always vying for attention with Cindy Lou, her best friend. A tomboy, she loves Johnny, her high school crush with all her soul, but Cindy Lou steals him away. She holds this grudge against Cindy Lou until they make up at the 10 year reunion. ALTO with a strong low range. Among the songs she sings are: ‘Lipstick on Your Collar’, ‘I Only Want To Be With You’, ‘It’s My Party’.
Suzy: Best friends with Missy, she is the happy-go-lucky one of the group. Always smiling and giggling, nothing ever seems to bother her. Completely surprised when named prom queen. Angry, crying, and confused in Act 2. MEZZO ALTO, both simple and soul voice. Among the songs she sings are: ‘Stupid Cupid’, ‘Hold Me, Thrill Me’, ‘Rescue Me’.
The role of Missy has been cast.
