SynopsisWhen the PTA from Edgewater, Indiana cancels the senior prom in order to block a lesbian student from bringing her date, four eccentric Broadway stars in search of a cause swoop in to save the day. They know that it’s time to put a spotlight on the issue… and themselves. On a mission to transform lives, Broadway’s brassiest join forces with a courageous student and the town’s citizens and the result is love that brings them all together.  A new musical comedy “so filled with happiness that you think your heart is about to burst” (Variety). 


Winner of the Drama Desk Award for Best Musical with book and lyrics by Chad Beguelin, book by Bob Martin, and music by Matthew Sklar, this musical delivers a message of hope and inclusion the world needs right now.

We are seeking a diverse, open-minded, and honest cast of performers to fill a range of roles. Members of the LGBTQ+ community are strongly encouraged to audition. 


Please note that people of all races, gender identities, and abilities are encouraged to audition for this inclusive and collaborative production. We will also be casting Understudies for Lead Roles & Ensemble Swing Roles.

EMMA NOLAN Teenager in Indiana. A reluctant poster child for LGTBQ+ youth. Very smart. A bit of a tomboy quality. Not your typical leading lady. Must be a strong actor and singer with underdog energy and a charming sense of awkward/anxious humor. 

ALYSSA GREENE A cheerleader and top student. Secretly Emma’s girlfriend. Faces constant pressure from her mother and friends. A little miss perfect who chafes under the pressure and isn’t quite as perfect as she seems. Must be a strong actor, singer and mover. 

DEE DEE ALLEN (Late 30’s-60’s.) Broadway diva. A huge ego to match her huge talent. Hilariously self-involved but yearns to do something good for someone other than herself. Known for her strong Broadway belt vocals and large stage presence. Jaded with relationships so does not believe in true love until she meets Mr. Hawkins. Must have incredibly strong stage presence. Strong actor and singer.

BARRY GLICKMAN (Late 30’s-50’s.) A very gay Broadway star. Completely politically incorrect and doesn’t know it. Impulsive and loves to make a scene everywhere he goes. Strong singer. Big, Broadway belter. Must have comedic timing and incredibly strong stage presence. 


MRS. GREENE (Late 30’s-50’s.) Alyssa’s intimidating, conservative, single mother. The head of the PTA. Knows deep down that her daughter Alyssa is struggling with her identity. She is too afraid to face the reality because she fears her daughter will face a hard life. 


MARION HAWKINS (Late 30’s-50’s.) A small town principal. Easily flustered. Straight-laced. A Broadway enthusiast. Good singer. High Baritone.
