Synopsis

It’s the tail end of the big, bad 1980s in Hollywood, and the party has been raging hard. Aqua Net, Lycra, lace and liquor flow freely at one of the Sunset Strip’s last legendary venues, a place where sex machine Stacee Jaxx takes the stage and scantily clad groupies line up to turn their fantasies into reality. Amidst the madness, aspiring rock star (and resident toilet cleaner) Drew longs to take the stage as the next big thing (and longs for small-town girl Sherri, fresh off the bus from Kansas with stars in her eyes). But the rock ’n’ roll fairy tale is about to end when German developers sweep into town with plans to turn the fabled Strip into just another capitalist strip mall. Can Drew, Sherri and the gang save the strip – and themselves – before it’s too late? Only the music of hit bands Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake and more hold the answer.

Casting Call

Actors of all ages, race, and body type are encouraged to audition!

All Roles Open.

DREW BOLEY: (Reads early 20s) A strong rock singer that can mix belt up to at least a high C, preferably high D, with comedic timing and charm. He’s a rocker who dreams of making it big on the Sunset Strip and beyond. A devoted good guy who’s currently working as a bar back at the famous Bourbon Bar as he strives to “break in" writing and singing his own music. He has instant attraction and chemistry with Sherrie.

SHERRIE CHRISTIAN: (Reads as early 20s) A strong rock belter up to F5 with strong low notes, great comedic timing and good movement ability. She is straight off the bus from Kansas and new to the Sunset Strip to pursue her passion and dreams of becoming an actress. Unsuspecting and trusting in others even as she finds herself taking a stripper job to get by.

LONNY: (Reads early 30s) A dynamic comic with improv skills and strong rock vocals that can belt up to a high B. The sound guy at the Bourbon Bar and self-proclaimed “sound god”, he’s the narrator/conjurer of the show who has instant stage presence and charisma to spare. Funny, unabashed, and cheeky.

DENNIS DUPREE: (Reads 30s-40s) A rock baritone that can rock belt up to a G with excellent comedic timing. He runs the Bourbon Room and is an easy-going stoner type whose heart is in the right place but is feeling the changing of the times arriving as everyone looks to him to help save the bourbon bar, and the Strip, from being sold off to foreign developers. A dry wit.

STACEE JAXX/FATHER: (Reads late 20s t0 30s) A Rock Tenor that can whale up to a high C - rock star that decided to leave his successful hair/metal -rock band to try it solo. Has Charm when he wants to but then immediately drops it. Full of himself and truly the ultimate bad boy. Also plays Sherrie's Father. 

JUSTICE CHARLIER/ MOTHER: (Reads Late 20s-30s) Sings rock and soul with a belt up to a E5 with strong low notes. Once a performer herself, she now operates a strip club where she is a maternal figure for the girls that work for her. Her presence is strong with an easy sensuality.

HERTZ KLINEMANN: (Reads 40s-50s) A rock Baritone that belts up to at least a G# preferably an A. He’s a German businessman trying to buy the Bourbon Bar and most of the Strip to develop it. He is intimidating and uptight. Very demanding of his son.

FRANZ KLINEMANN: (Reads early 20s) Hertz’s son with a rock belt up to A. He is pressured and intimidated by his father to work for him. He’d much rather be back home starting his own confectionery store. Shy, gentle with a big heart. Has dance ability.

REGINA: (Reads late 20s) A conscientious, earthy, hippie type who leads the protest against Hertz’s attempted take-over of the Strip. Who has strong comedic timing. Rock Belt up to a C#. Has dance ability.

MAYOR/JA'KEITH/ENSEMBLE: (Reads 30s) A strong character actor with good comedic timing to play numerous roles, strong rock tenor to A, and strong dance/movement ability.

JOEY PRIMO/ENSEMBLE: (Reads late teens to 20s) A young male with the rocker sensibility, strong rock tenor and strong/ dance/movement ability, possible understudy for Drew/Stacee.
