Based on the 1984 movie, a city kid attempts to adapt to life in the ultra-conservative, rural town of Bomont, Texas. Once there, he ends up leading the repressed teenagers into a rebellion against the town leaders, paving the way for the community’s first high school dance in decades.

Large ensemble cast, with many opportunities for featured performances.

Note from the directors:

This show lends itself to lots of roles for “teens,” but this is a story about a town and all the nuanced personalities that make it tick. Everyone in the cast will have an opportunity to do some dancing and show their love of the ‘80s. The directing staff is planning to have ensemble on stage in some capacity for nearly every scene. If you have specific skills (gymnastics, dance, etc.) let us know at auditions so we can work to find a way to include those talents into the show.

Featured roles and soloist needs:

· Ren McCormack – A teenage boy from Chicago (tenor)

· Willard Hewitt – Ren’s friend, a country boy (baritone/tenor)

· Ethel McCormack – Ren’s mother (mezzo)

· Shaw Moore – A prominent church minister in Bomont (baritone)

· Vi Moore – The minister’s wife (mezzo)

· Ariel Moore – The minister’s daughter (mezzo)

· Rusty – Ariel’s best friend (soprano)

· Chuck Cranston – Ariel’s boyfriend (tenor)

· Cowboy Bob – A cowboy in a country western dance hall

More soloists will be added as scenes are workshopped.

Special Dance Needs:

The primary style of the show will be 1980s style jazz. Prior dance experience would be helpful, but it’s not required. Tumbling/gymnastics/technical dance skills may be featured, if possible. Bring lots of personality and energy!
