ABOUT THE PLAY:
An emergency online session of the Student Council takes a surprising turn when VP Sam Rayburn brings controversial charges against popular President Andi Johnson. His goal? Impeachment. But he’s going to have to get his heckling colleagues and skeptical faculty adviser on board first, despite technical glitches, unreliable witnesses, and a treacherous younger sibling. To Sam, the path seems clear – but will it end in a new inauguration or some hard-won wisdom?
A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR:
Hello everyone! I am so excited to be directing this year’s Teen Arts Project! It is especially meaningful to me because I began my journey with Four County Players with a TAP: Dancing with Myself. For this play, Student Council v. Andi Johnson, I will be looking for 5 – 6 high school-aged teens and one teacher in their early 20s. Although this show will be virtual, it will still be a blast!
Director Anneliese Mabie is looking for a strong, diverse cast of actors of any race or gender to play the characters listed below. The ages listed are the suggested ages of the characters, and actors should be able to play said ages — approximately — even if they are not those ages themselves. That said, with the exception of Miss Simms, no one age 19 or older will be cast. (Note: the character of Andi Johnson, while the subject of the play, is never seen.)
SAM, 17, Student Body Vice President, ambitious but self-conscious, pressured.
BAILEY, 14, Student Body Sergeant at Arms, Sam’s younger sibling, needles Sam, but with love.
TERRY, 17, Student Body Secretary, annoyed by pretentiousness but still has a sense of justice.
ALEX, 16, Student Body Treasurer, rarely comes to the meetings, life of the party.
TAYLOR, 16, a lonely Robotics team member who is used to being a pawn.
MISS SIMMS, 20s+, Student Government Adviser, gives way too much of her time to this.
