CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS FROM WESTERN-CANADIAN ARTISTS (west of Ontario)
AUDITION DATES IN CALGARY: Sunday, June 16 and Monday, June 17, 2019.
MARC HALL: (Male, to play 17yrs old). A courageous, unapologetic gay teen (with blue hair yet!) from an industrial suburb. He is an idealist and eager for his life to begin. When the Catholic School Board refuses to allow him to take his boyfriend to the Prom, he challenges his conservative community to celebrate diversity and shines a glitterball in the face of intolerance. Seeking: Strong actor who is an amazing singer and who moves very well. Dancing a plus. Vocal Range: Pop Tenor to A4.
JASON POWERS: (Male, to play 19yrs old). Marc's working class boyfriend who is resistant to coming out. He passes for straight, and this affords him the ability to work side by side in the same factory with Marc's Dad and his redneck friends without being outed. Jason is a little rough around the edges, but he is supportive and loving and shows a genuine soft spot for Marc. Seeking: Strong actor who sings and moves very well. Dancing a plus. Vocal Range: Pop Tenor to A4.

BOOMER BRONSON: (Male, to play 17yrs old). Smitten with Carly, he oozes 'too cool-for school' sexuality. A supposed 'bad boy', we learn that he is covering up his sweet self. Seeking strong actor/singer/dancer. Vocal range: Pop Tenor with R&B flair up to A4.
TIFF: (Female, to play 17yrs old). Carly's buttoned-down, pragmatic friend. She is a type-A stage manager who thrives behind the scenes but fears the spotlight. Seeking strong actor/singer/dancer. Vocal range: Pop Soprano/Mezzo.
