Music Director: Rose Yurcina
Stage Manager: Austin Mueck
About the Musical: Mad Libs Live! Is the new 60-minute TYA musical based on the most popular word game of all time! Our story begins at the finals of Teen Superstars, the live TV show that will determine the most popular singing group of Blankville Central High. Virtuoso, GoGo, Geyser, and Merrily seem to have nothing in common – until just before airtime they realize that their songs are missing words! Just like the popular game, our gang fills in the blanks with words from the audience! This truly interactive musical changes at every performance!
Seeking four non-union adult actors with improv experience to play:
MERRILY – to play female age 16. Empathic, cheerful, smart, but lacks confidence
VIRTUOSA – to play female age 16. Self-involved, desperate for fame. Think Rachel from Glee.
GEYSER – to play male age 14. The new kid. Quirky, into video games, sci-fi, and outer space. His speech cadence often resembles that of a sci-fi space captain. Doubles as DYLAN to play 16. The lead singer of No Direction. Massive ego. He stole away Gogo’s girlfriend, Lindsey.
GOGO – to play male age 17. Active, athletic. Exhibits leadership qualities but can be overly competitive.
All actors will be paid a non-union salary of $225 per week for five weeks. No travel or housing is provided.
