About the show:
[title of show]
Music and Lyrics by Jeff Bowen; Book by Hunter Bell Directed by Kimberly Miller
Hunter and Jeff have decided to submit an entry to a new musical theatre festival – but the deadline is just three weeks away, and they have nothing written! With the help of some friends, they scramble to write a show that depicts the very dilemma in which they find themselves. An intimate musical that chronicles the story of its own creation and development, [title of show] is a joyful - and snarky - exploration of the creative process.
Note on all characters: These characters are all theatre people. You know these people. They are both over the top and sincere. Both tough skinned go getters and fragile artists. For as "theatrical" as they can be they are still at their core real people.
Jeff- male, mid 20s to mid 40s, a composer/lyricist. Sharp, quick witted and to the point. He is a task master of sorts, but is still sentimental at heart.
Hunter- male, mid 20s to mid 40s, a book writer. A goofy and fun loving dreamer. Hunter has been more preoccupied with pop culture than creating his own works. His talents are seemingly being focused for the first time.
Susan- female, mid 20s to mid 40s, their actor friend. A funky woman with an odd sense of humor. After giving up on her dreams, she is now an office manager for a corporation and longs for a break from her mundane life.
Heidi- female, mid 20s to mid 40s, their actor friend. She is tired of being stuck in the chorus and going to audition after audition and not getting any closer to the career that she wants. She looks forward to a new kind of opportunity.
Hunter and Jeff: G3 to B5 (G below middle C to B above the staff)
Heidi and Susan: F3 to G5 (F below middle C to G above the staff)
Rehearsal Schedule: A few preliminary rehearsals in December, then up to 5 times a week starting in early January.
Performances: Feburary 19 to March 6, 2016 (Fri-Mon, Thu-Sun, Thu-Sun; 12 total)
