Seeking:Jake Dillinger: Male, 18+, to play a teenager, the ultimate high school cool guy. Handsome, popular, a star athlete from a rich family, he has everything going for him and he knows it. Alpha status is effortless to him and he might contain hidden depths, but it’s hard to see them when he gets whatever he wants all the time. Strong rock/pop voice. Jenna Rolan: Female, 18+, to play a teenager, clearly not one of the cool kids (although she desperately wants to be), she’s the school gossip who always has the dirt and is more than happy to tell anyone and everyone about it. Must be great with comedy. Strong voice with a pop/indie-rock sensibility. Jeremy/Michael/Rich Understudy: Male, 18+, to play a teenager; must have great comedic timing and strong rock/pop voice. Offstage understudy for 3 roles. Jeremy Heere is sweet, introspective, awkward and very much uncool, he just hopes to keep his head down enough to survive high school and maybe get the girl of his dreams to notice him. When he’s given the opportunity to have a supercomputer implanted in his brain that tells him how to become popular, he has to balance following its rules with following his own heart. Michael Mell is funny, laid-back, and very warm. Although he’s uncool too, he’s comfortable in his own skin and happy to kick back, play video games with his best (and only) friend Jeremy, listen to Bob Marley, and wait for high school to be over. Jeremy’s transformation and subsequent betrayal are devastating, and for the first time ever, the longtime outsider finds himself in a position to save the day. Rich is the terror of the uncool kids, and will go out of his way to make their lives difficult. Despite his meanness and almost certain criminal future, he has a secret that reveals a surprisingly sensitive side and a chance at possible redemption. Must have the ability to be truly threatening. The Squip/Jeremy's Dad/Mr. Reyers/Jake Understudy: 30-39, must have great comedic timing and strong rock/pop voice. Offstage understudy for 3 roles. The Squip is the physical manifestation of a Japanese supercomputer which implants in Jeremy’s brain and teaches him how to be cool. The Squip appears as the coolest guy around – confident, self-assured, masculine and literally all-knowing, with a hint of Keanu Reeves (the coolest guy Jeremy can think of) and an occasional tendency to be snide. However, since he is a supercomputer with his own agenda, he occasionally reveals a more mechanical, much darker side. Jeremy's Dad is 40’s, sweet, cheerful, and a little pathetic, his wife’s departure the year before has left him in denial and struggling to cope. Terrified of everything including stepping up as a father and wearing pants, he pretends everything is just fine. Mr. Reyes is the drama teacher at the high school, whose dreams of an artistic production are crushed under the demands of school bureaucracy. Emotional and prone to hiding his many disappointments under a constant hunger for Hot Pockets, he needs only the slightest encouragement to take the stage himself. Jake is the ultimate high school cool guy. Handsome, popular, a star athlete from a rich family, he has everything going for him and he knows it. Alpha status is effortless to him and he might contain hidden depths, but it’s hard to see them when he gets whatever he wants all the time. Chloe/Brooke/Christine/Jenna Understudy: Female, 18+, to play a teenager; must have great comedic timing and strong rock/pop voice. Offstage understudy for four roles. Chloe is the most popular girl in school. Confident, crass, sexy, manipulative, and downright mean at times, she’s the undisputed queen of the social scene, and rules over her minions with unquestioned power. Brooke is the second most popular girl in school. Sweet and a little insecure, she’s Chloe’s sidekick and always happy to defer to her, although she’s not nearly as driven or dominating. Christine is sweet, sensitive, smart and a little nerdy, she’s a theater kid and cares deeply about it. The kind of girl who knows she’ll thrive in college, she doesn’t engage with the social hierarchy of high school but can’t resist being tempted when the coolest guy in school starts pursuing her. Jenna is clearly not one of the cool kids (although she desperately wants to be), she’s the school gossip who always has the dirt and is more than happy to tell anyone and everyone about it. The Squip (Lead): Male, 20-39, the physical manifestation of a Japanese supercomputer which implants in Jeremy’s brain and teaches him how to be cool; The Squip appears as the coolest guy around – confident, self-assured, masculine and literally all-knowing, with a hint of Keanu Reeves (the coolest guy Jeremy can think of) and an occasional tendency to be snide; however, since he is a supercomputer with his own agenda, he occasionally reveals a more mechanical, much darker side; must have a great rock/pop voice.
