We are seeking a cast of six diverse and versatile young performers ages 16-26 who are dynamic singers and dancers with large personalities that feel comfortable singing in a variety of styles, including jazz, pop, and country. A willingness to improvise and interact with the audience is needed.

An elementary school teacher who has just received his degree. Nervous about facing his classroom on the first day of school, he turns to the cartoon series he dearly loved for inspiration. He’s skeptical at times, but never cynical. Sings the bottom line in the score; vocal range F2-A4.

The romantic character – caring and in control. The leader of the group of characters. He really wants Tom to succeed. Sings the top line in the score; vocal range G4-C5.

The goofy character – silly and unpredictable. Marches to her own drummer. Imaginative, sometimes wacky, sometimes thoughtful. Sings the bottom line in the score; vocal range F3-E5.

The sweet/intelligent character – genuine and enthusiastic. She loves math. A delightful and nerdy ingénue. Sings the top line in the score; vocal range G3-B5.

The cool character – laid-back and fun loving. A little more grounded and mature than the rest, but still willing to be a goofball. Sings the middle in the score; vocal range G2b-A4.

The mature/sassy character – the most sophisticated, thoughtful, and savvy of the group. She will tell you like it is, but she loves her goofy friends. Sings the middle line in the score; vocal range F3-E5.

Show dates are June 9, 10, and 11.

We look forward to seeing you at auditions. If you have any questions, reach out to River Valley Players via our Facebook page ( or contact Lauren directly at [email protected]
