Synopsis: 

Jeff and Hunter, two struggling writers, hear about a new musical theatre festival. However, the deadline for submissions is a mere three weeks away. With nothing to lose, the pair decides to try to create something new with the help of their friends Susan, Heidi and Larry on the eighty-eights. With the cast in place, Jeff and Hunter begin a conversation about what to write about. Eventually, Jeff suggests they write about what to write about. They make a pact to write up until the festival’s deadline and dream about the show changing their lives. [title of show]—taken from the space on the festival’s application form which asks for the [title of show]—follows Hunter and Jeff and their friends on their journey through the gauntlet of creative self-expression. In the span of 90 minutes they write and perform their show at the festival and learn lessons about themselves as people, friends and artists. [title of show] is, above all, a love letter to the musical theatre—a uniquely American art form—and to the joy of collaboration.


Character Descriptions:

Jeff: Jeff is the composer and lyricist of the show-within-a-show. He is a bit of a worrier and doesn’t always trust his own gift. He is a Broadway enthusiast who loves obscure musicals and proudly collects Playbills from flop shows! Baritenor role.


Hunter: Hunter writes the book for the show-within-a-show. He is the “class clown” with a heart of gold. He loves trashy reality TV and can sometimes come across as too eager to please. Think of a friendly, eager puppy! Baritenor role.


Heidi: Heidi is Jeff’s friend who must get to know Hunter and Susan. She has Broadway experience, but still wants to make it “big”. She’s a stereotypical “Broadway Baby” who grew up listening to cast recordings and has made performing her life’s work. Soprano role with belt.


Susan: Susan is Hunter’s friend who must get to know Jeff and Heidi. She is not the most confident in her singing ability, but sings just fine! She probably never envisioned herself in a Broadway musical and has appeared in shows that are more “downtown”. She has a day job that she loathes. Quirky and kooky. Mezzo role with belt.


Congratulations!
