13 roles

CadyFemale14-18 y.o.All ethnicities

(vocal range G3-Gb5) A new junior at North Shore High School, Cady grew up in Africa and was homeschooled by her wildlife biologist parents. She is warm, bright, and strong enough to take on The Plastics. Is the emotional heart of our story.

ReginaFemale14-18 y.o.All ethnicities

(vocal range F#3-Gb5) Regina is the Queen Bee of the Plastics. When she shines her light on you, you feel like the most important person in the world. When that light goes cold, you want to die. She is regal, still, and “hot”, but at her most vulnerable moments, she is just a kid in over her head.

JanisFemale14-18 y.o.All ethnicities

(vocal range F#3-Gb5) An “Art Freak” and social outcast, Janis is not afraid to be weird or make others uncomfortable. She paints herself as an objective observer, but, like so many of us, she longs to avenge the devastating events of eighth grade.

DamianMale14-18 y.o.All ethnicities

(vocal range F2-A4) Outgoing and an active member of the student activities committee, Damian is a fiercely loyal friend to Janis and they have the close rapport of a comedy team.

GretchenFemale14-18 y.o.All ethnicities

(vocal range G3-D5) One of the Plastics. Desperate to please Regina and to maintain her position in the Plastics, Gretchen is a nervous wreck. She is a “banker” meaning she befriends people to “bank” their secrets so she can trade them later for her own benefit. Her fragility at times is heartbreaking.

KarenMale14-18 y.o.All ethnicities

(vocal range G3-Gb5) One of the Plastics. Although her intellect and personality never had a chance tto develop, Karen is essentially kind, relaxed, and a generous laugher.

AaronMale14-18 y.o.All ethnicities

(vocal range B2-Bb4) A cute boy with a good moral compass and a backbone. He’s not immune to all the female attention he gets, but he’s not going to let himself be a pawn in their chess game either. Broadway and pop tenor.

Mrs. HeronFemale14-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Mrs. Heron is Cady’s intellectual mom who can’t understand why her daughter is devolving before her eyes. Great singer. Eclectic Broadway vocal mix. (Possibly doubles with Ms. Norbury and Mrs. George)

Ms. NorburyFemale14-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Ms. Norbury is Cady’s world-weary Calculus teacher who pushes Cady to be her smartest self. Great singer. Eclectic Broadway vocal mix. (Possibly doubles with Mrs. Heron and Mrs. George)

Mrs. GeorgeFemale14-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Mrs. George is Regina’s “cool mom.” She’s desperate to look young and feel like one of the teens. She’s also desperate for Regina not to repeat her mistakes. Great singer. Eclectic Broadway vocal mix. (Possibly doubles with Ms. Norbury and Mrs. Heron)

Mr. DuvallMale14-18 y.o.All ethnicities

The principal of North Shore High. Mr. Duvall may have once taught computers at Joliet penitentiary, but nothing prepared him for the harsh realities of out-of-control junior girls. Funny and a strong singer.

Kevin GMale14-18 y.o.All ethnicities

Kevin is the extremely driven captain of the North Shore Mathletes. He is a confident student and a decent rapper.
