CAST OF CHARACTERS
REBEKAH, late twenty-something small-town ballerina who made it big – or at least big enough. Privileged, generous and joyful with a soft-spot for her hometown.
BEN, Good looking late twenty-something theatre technician. The kind of kid that got into theatre in junior high to chase after the girls but fell in love with the mechanics of it. Ferociously loyal. Rebekah’s friend since childhood.
MAYOR BECK, town’s mayor for two decades. Settled into the position and not used to being told “no.” Not corrupt, but not necessarily on the up-and-up. Would rather see the theatre used for a movie house or restaurant.

Life is Not a Musical
Written and Directed by Rick Tyler
SYNOPSIS: Cassie longs for the fairy tale romance she has seen in musical theatre and movies. Lance, who has feelings for her, tries, with her best friend Terra, to convince her that life is really not like that. Both Lance and Terra sing to the audience their arguments that people do not really break out in song in real life. Cassie is unable to hear them singing until the very end of the show, when she joins them on the finale.
All the action takes place in a typical coffee shop. The set will consist of a table and 3 chairs for the actors. There will also be a coat rack which will hold the baseball cape and full sized umbrella that Lance will use for a short hat and cane dance in his first song.
