TIC is thrilled to be holding auditions and callbacks this week for its upcoming revival of Buffalo Heights by Adam Harrell, which is an official selection of the 2017 Planet Connections Theatre Festivity.
The show was first developed by a group of actors, artistic director Jake Lipman, and playwright Adam Harrell in 2014, culminating in its workshop premiere in May 2014, for which notices were very positive.
Since then, Jake and Adam have updated the show and trimmed it to a zippy 90 minutes. We are seeking 5 actors to join the cast for this revival, with the following breakdown:
[MIKE HOBBES] (Late 30s.) Well-intentioned by dim security guard at Buffalo Heights High.
[CONNER SMITH] (Actor must be 18 or older, plays high school student.) Popular, smart, but laid-back stoner.
[JEAN WASHINGTON] (Late 30s.) Tightly-wound high school principal. Must be comfortable with a same-sex kiss.
[DIANE MATTHEWS] (Mid-40s-50s.) Mother of PIPER MATTHEWS, straight-shooting Republican Congresswoman.
[PIPER MATTHEWS] (Actress must be 18 or older, plays high school student.) Daughter of DIANE MATTHEWS, hell-bent on winning student class president election, and any other honor.
Synopsis: When lesbian FRAN (CAST) goes through a bad break up and leaves France, her old friend from college, now a high school principal, JEAN, offers FRAN a job teaching French at Buffalo Heights High. When FRAN accidentally crosses congresswoman DIANE MATTHEWS and her ambitious daughter, PIPER, things get goofy. FRAN finds herself embroiled in an election scandal involving a hapless security guard, MIKE, a bright stoner, CONNER, forcing FRAN to face the rumors, with a little help from the metaphysical plane. Scandal, intrigue, improper bodily searches, and alternative facts -- just an average day at Buffalo Heights High.
