CHARACTER BREAKDOWN

SHEILA – (Mezzo-Soprano with high belt) SHEILA is the most beautiful, most desired, and most acquired girl in high school. She has learned over time that she can use sex appeal to get anything she wants. (Range: G#3-G5)

BRIAN – (Tenor) BRIAN is a slightly neurotic senior in high school and has silently been in love with SHEILA for as long as he can remember. Mix those feeling with the hormone-fueled sex drive of an awkward, yet endearing teenager and you have BRIAN. (Range: B2-B4)

STEPHEN – (Rock Tenor) STEPHEN is a high school senior and BRIAN’s cool best friend, with swag to spare. STEPHEN is forced to choose between his friends that have always been there him and what he thinks his heart wants. (Range: C3-C5)

TOM – (Tenor) TOM is the head jock and big man on campus. He also happens to be dating the most popular girl in school, SHEILA. Unbeknownst to him, so is everyone else. (Range: G2-G4)

KELLY – (Mezzo-Soprano w/ high belt) KELLY is sweet, good-hearted, and SHEILA’s right hand woman. Kelly struggles with the perks that come with popularity and the costs that come with it. (Range: E3-A5)

JAMES – (2nd Tenor) JAMES is a close friend of BRIAN and STEPHEN and often the butt of their jokes. JAMES goes through the show hiding a huge “infectious” secret. Slightly effeminate. (Range: E3-F#4)

KRISTA – (Soprano w/ Belt) KRISTA is the catty, sarcastic, bitchy side of the SHEILA-KELLY-KRISTA triangle and has a long-standing grudge with STEPHEN which none of the other characters understand. (Range: G3-F#4)

CURTIS – (2nd Tenor) CURTIS is TOM’s right hand man. CURTIS understands that he can manipulate TOM to his advantage. He has secretly been hooking up with SHEILA behind TOM’s back. Comical thug. (Range: E3-G4)

DAVID – (Baritone) Another friend of TOM. DAVID is also hooking up with SHEILA. Comical thug. (Range: B2-E4)
