A Note from the Director
This summer we are presenting the show Schoolhouse Rocks Jr. It is a musical set in the 1970’s. There are six scripted leads: Tom, a new teacher getting ready for his very first day of teaching. He is the Lead actor whom the whole story revolves around. Tom could be a Tammy and we can change the pronouns throughout the show to reflect the change. Although Tom is the main lead, he has No solo singing parts, but he is an important part of every song. The other characters are fractions of Tom’s imagination with possible splitting for more actors to be involved. It is similar to the movie “Inside Out” in that way. Gender is not important for these characters either. Pronouns can be shifted as needed. Below is a description of each of Tom’s personalities according to the authors of the script. What I want you to know is that each of these “personalities” can be split! These characters are not in every song.

Please look over the roles listed below and fill out the audition form before coming to auditions on May 2.
All campers will do choreography during the songs.
GEORGE is a marvelous character role. He takes the lead on “Three Is a Magic Number” and “Just a Bill”. George should be a good singer and strong character actor. He’s the caring, and “in control” part of Tom. This could be George and John if split into two parts. Each one will be getting a solo of their own.
DINA is Tom’s mature side. She is thoughtful and grounded. Dina takes the lead on “Interjections”. Dina should be a good strong singer able to hit harmony. This part could be split into Dina and Tina or Dina and Jack. Each one will be getting a solo part within the same song.
DORI takes the lead on “A Noun Is a Person, Place, and Thing” and “The Preamble”. She needs to be a strong singer who can lead the ensemble. She is the silly, goofy side of Tom. This part could be split into DORI and Lori or Dori and Torrie. Each one will be getting a solo of their own.
JOE is the cool side of Tom; he’s laid back and fun loving. He must be able to deliver the song “Conjunction Junction” with power. This is the smallest of the parts and can’t really be split unless two boys would understand how much smaller the parts would be split up.
SHULIE is the ingénue (romantic). She is Tom’s sweet, genuine side. She has the lead on “Unpack Your Adjectives”. She should be a strong singer and a likable character actor. This part can be two also splitting the song and dividing the lines too. It can be Shulie and Julie.
CHORUS members in this show are in more songs than some speaking characters. They have chorus people who actually have lines too. One chorus member has a solo as if he were Elvis. This musical doesn’t follow the stereotypical style of a musical. This chorus is busy being, stage crew, animals, people, places, and things. They are busy, busy, busy throughout the entire show. Although they may be in a musical number as a character, an animal, or a bench, they will still be required to sing.
