Rehearsals start in mid-March and the show runs from May 15 – June 13, 2020 at the Loeb Ex @ American Repertory Theater

All characters except Dance Teacher Pat and The Moms are between the ages of 11 and 14 years old. However, they will be played by a cast of adult actors of all ages, races and body types. There is no need for any of the actors to resemble teenagers.

Think of it as a ghost play: the actors’ older bodies are haunting these 13-year-olds characters. (We’re getting to see who they grow up to be!) And these 13-year-old characters are haunted by the specters of what they will become.

Actors do not need to possess any dance talent or experience to be considered for this show.

  • DANCE TEACHER PAT – The head of the dance studio
  • AMINA – The star dancer
  • ZUZU – Always second best
  • CONNIE – A talented dancer who thinks she should have the solo
  • LUKE – The only male dancer on the competition team
  • MAEVE – The oldest and least talented dancer on the team
  • SOFIA – Knows what’s up
  • ASHLEE – Future president of a post-apocalyptic USA
  • VANESSA (aka THE CRUMPLED SAILOR) – Could’ve been a phenomenon
  • THE MOMS – Means well. Grown up Wendy
