Be the star of your own prom when Chandler Center for the Arts presents, “Awesome ’80s Prom,” a popular off-Broadway production in which the audience is invited to dance, don blue eye shadow and flaunt teased hair do’s alongside the cast. Performances will be taking place nightly March 19-24, 2012.
Casting for the show has just been announced, and the search is on for local talent! Awesome 80’s Prom is looking for actors to portray the variety of characters in the show, reminiscent of the classic archetypes from all the beloved 80’s films, including: the jock, bad boy, class president, mean school principal, nerds, foreign exchange students, cheerleaders and more. Dancers with energetic and sociable personalities and impersonators of celebrities from the 1980’s are also needed.
Lastly, for those who have been bit by the comedy bug rather than the dancing bug, the show is also seeking a performer to play the part of the DJ. It’s the perfect role for karaoke hosts, stand-up comedians or other lively individuals who can keep the crowd engaged and experiencing an awesome 80’s night!
Actors cast in the Prom will be given $100 stipend (per actor) and ticket vouchers.
Auditions will be held Saturday, January 28, 2012 at the Chandler Center for the Arts, located at 250 North Arizona Avenue Chandler, AZ 85225. Call-backs will be on the same day. The national touring director for “Awesome ’80s Prom” will be present.
