This girl loves ghoul rock and roll Off Broadway musical is set in the atomic 1950s at Enrico Fermi High, where the law is laid down by a zany, tyrannical principal. Pretty senior Toffee has fallen for the class bad boy. Family pressure forces her to end the romance, and he charges off on his motorcycle to the nuclear waste dump. He returns glowing and determined to reclaim Toffee's heart. He still wants to graduate, but most of all he wants to take Toffee to the prom. The principal orders him to drop dead while a scandal reporter seizes on him as the freak du jour. History comes to his rescue while a tuneful selection of original songs in the style of 50s hits keeps the action rocking across the stage.
DELILAH STRICT: Female, 35-50 (Range: Mezzo Soprano Belt, G33-A5)
School Principal; icy and hard on the outside with a heart of gold. Should have good comic timing - think Carol Burnett or Bette Midler.
TOFFEE: Female, HS Student (Range: Soprano Belt, F3-E5)
Good girl from the right side of the tracks. Hopelessly in love with Jonny. Sweet and funny - think Gidget or Sandra Dee.
CANDY: Female, HS Student (Range: Mezzo Belt, F3-G5)
Nervous and hyper. Always chewing her nails. Think a young Marge Simpson.
COCO: Female, HS Student (Range: Soprano Belt, F3-G5)
Coco isn't bad, she's just drawn that way. Think Jessica Rabbit with a dry wit.
GINGER: Female HS Student (Range: Soprano Belt, F3-G5)
Class nerd, sweet and means well but she verges on annoying. Think comedic Emma Stone, Amy Schumer, or Kristen Wiig
JONNY WARNER: Male, HS Student (Range: Rock Tenor, C3-C5)
Good kid from the wrong side of the tracks. Sincere and funny. Think Ross from "Friends."
JOEY: Male, HS Student (Range: Tenor, E3-F4)
Class Jock. Big, handsome and dumb. Think "duh..."
JOSH: Male, HS Student (Range: Tenor, E3-Eb4)
The class geek. Aspiring journalist. Think Pee Wee Herman without the weird voice.
JAKE: Male, HS Student (Range: Rock Tenor, E3-F4)
Probably voted the most popular. He's sweet and personable and is deeply in love with Candy. Think Cory from "Boy Meets World."
EDDIE FLAGRANTE: Male, 35-50 (Range: Baritone, D3-Ab4)
Newspaper Journalist; opportunistic tabloid reporter who roots for the underdog and "justice" in the end. Think Geraldo Rivera but with Kevin Klein's comic appeal.
Covered from within the cast: Assorted Parents, Secretaries, Copy boys, TV Floor Workers and Singers.
