Sirc Michaels Productions is holding open auditions on Monday 6/18 from 6-10pm and Tuesday 6/19 from 5-9pm for its production of the Off-Broadway hit THE AWESOME 80s PROM, which will open as a resident production this July. Men and women of various ages are needed.
The show is being directed by Ken Davenport, the creator of the show. Actors are paid per performance.
Sirc Michaels is looking for actors who want to have fun. The setting is a High School Prom in 1989, and all of the characters one would anticipate seeing from a John Hughes film are in it! So dust off your Reeboks, slip on a Members Only Jacket, practice your Moonwalk, and come on down.
This is an audience-interactive show. Some parts require specific looks or abilities, but there's something for just about everyone.
Blake - The Captain of the Football Team. A Charming, egotistical jock. Think "Jake" in 16 Candles.
Louis - The Nerd. Introverted, computer geek. Think Michael Hall in 16 Candles.
Fender - The Bad Boy. Mean, defensive, loud. Think Judd Nelson in The Breakfast Club.
Michael Jay - The Class President. A young Republican/born politician. A Guy-Smiley game show host type. Think Michael J. Fox on Family Ties.
Feung - The Asian Exchange Student. Charismatic, speaks little English. Think Long Duk Dong in 16 Candles.
Dickie The Drama Queen. Flamboyant, fabulous and bitter. Sings "Don't Rain on My Parade" like Barbara Streisand. Think Ducky in Pretty in Pink mixed with Jack from Will & Grace.
Beef - A football player. Big and intimidating, but not too bright. Think Chris Farley.
Mr. Snelgrove - The Principal. A fascist dictator. Think the principal in Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
The Heathers - Cheerleader #1 and #2. Whitley's back up cheerleaders. Must cheer/dance. (All dancers without acting experience but fun personalities are strongly encouraged to audition.)
Kerrie - The Spaz. Petite. A sweet but hyper nerd. In love with Blake. Surprisingly cute, once she removes the glasses and headgear.
Missy - The Head of the Prom Committee. Perfect. Way too perky. Think Reese Witherspoon in Election.
Whitley - The Head Cheerleader. Attractive, sexy, bitchy, and vain. Thinking "Heathers." Must cheer and dance.
DJ Johnny Hughes - The DJ. Extremely charismatic host who can warm up a crowd. Runs dance contest, etc. Stand-up comedians, karaoke hosts, etc. all encouraged to audition. Must have high energy and an infectious energy that can keep a party going.
Inga - The Swedish Exchange Student. Tall and voluptuous. Speaks with a heavy accent.
Mrs. Lascalzo - The Drama Teacher. A leftover hippie who loves everyone. A little clueless.
Molly Parker - A freshman. A member of the Freshman Cheerleading Squad and the yearbook committee.
Lloyd Parker - Her twin (less cool) brother.
Mystery Guest - A 1980's celebrity impersonator (i.e. Madonna, Michael Jackson, MC Hammer, Prince). Performs (or lip syncs) one song at the height of the PROM.
Prepare a brief contemporary comic monologue. If you do not have one, you may choose to read from sides that will be provided. Sirc Michaels will not be accepting video submissions. Auditions are open, meaning first come first serve, not by appointment.
The show will be a resident production with an open-ended run beginning in summer 2012.
