So some time back on TAGP I saw an audition notice for a show that will be featured in the Fringe Festival this fall. I’ve seen the same audition notice a few times since then as well. This is not at all uncommon, as the Fringe has hundreds of shows. But this one has caught my eye…
To The Wall Productions is currently accepting headshots and resumes for the Philadelphia Premiere of Debbie Does Dallas- The Musical to be performed August 31- September 2007 during the Philly Fringe Festival. Based on the classic adult film, Debbie tells the story of a young girl who dreams of being a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader and how nothing will stand in her way of making her dream come true.
Oh this is beautiful! See what comes from a love of musical theatre and a healthy appetite for classic porn?!?
It continues with character descriptions…
Seeking: 5 F, 3 M
Debbie Benton: Bombshell Blonde small town girl with big city dreams; cheer captain; generous by nature with a squeaky clean image; has the conviction to pursue her dreams and achieve them, regardless of the cost.
Lisa: Essentially the “bad girl we love to hate;” She is comfortable with her own sexuality, and loves to use her looks, charm, and sex to get what she wants. She is manipulative and sneaky.
Roberta: Lisa’s best friends. She is naïve and spacey, but only by choice. She is smarter than she lets on. She is also comfortable with her sexuality.
Donna: The dark angel, intellectual poet of the cheer squad. She has a boyfriend, and wants to explore her sexuality, but doesn’t want to be labeled as “easy.” She is best friends with Tammy.
Tammy: A young Hilary Clinton with a sense of humor; she wants to be a senator when she grows up. She is the most innocent of the cheerleaders (a virgin) and remains so.
Actor One: The funny, lovable, high school heartthrob who plays the following roles: Rick, the high school quarterback/captain of the football team and Debbie’s boyfriend. Hamilton, the rich and arrogant tennis pro, and Mr. Bigtime, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys football team.
Actor Two: A character actor who has the ability to be funny and have real depth. Plays Mr. Greenfelt, Debbie’s lonely boss as well as Mr. Biddle, the repressed, reserved high school librarian, and Kevin, a suburban high school jock.
Actor Three: Plays five roles and therefore must be good at quick total character transformations. Must be funny. Plays the following roles: Mr. Hardwick, a swinger who owns a candle shop, Mr. Bradley the perverted High School Spanish teacher, Ashley, Hamilton’s rich friend, Nick, the college aged record store snob, Jonny, the tight end on the football team, and Tim, whose also on the football team and dates Donna.
This is awesome. Already my expectations are so gloriously high for this that it can’t possibly live up to them.
Auditions will be held by appointment only.
I’d hope so, can you imagine the group audition?
