NOW CASTING:
TEENS ON TOUR: Through These Eyes

TEENS ON TOUR is a uniquely powerful production that brings real teens to the stage, to confront serious topics facing their generation. An all-youth cast brings the struggles of real teens to vivid life in Bruce Gevirtzman’s powerful play for teens, and their parents.

On their personal quests for identity, teens struggle everyday to live up to the standards of society, the media, their friends and the vision they see of themselves in the mirror. Through These Eyes tracks a group of adolescents dealing with difficult issues of self-image and related challenges.

*Features an all-youth cast and a post-show discussion.

[EMMA] 17 to 21 years old, all ethnicities female. Central character of the show, ‘speaks the words that virtually all young people, male or female, will relate to about how we see ourselves, despite her own view of herself,’ she is pretty, must have a strong stage presence, does not need to be thin, part of her weight problem is in her own eyes, dealing with bulimia, she is aware of her problem, but doesn’t see it as a problem.

[RAFA] 14 to 21 years old, all ethnicities male. Confident young man, confused about what others dictate a man should be versus the man he thinks he is, where he should find love and support from his parents and friends, he finds questions about his passions and style of dress, as a response, he experiments with cutting.

[JACKIE] 15 to 21 years old, all ethnicities female. Typical, good-natured, if not ditsy, teen, friend of Emma, genuinely caring, but completely unsure of what a friend does to support/help a teen dealing with bulimia, torn between her duties as a friend to protect Emma’s secret and the responsibility of getting help, comedic timing helpful.

[SARA] 15 to 21 years old, all ethnicities female. bold, feisty, strong in attitude, Emma’s friend, concerned about her battle with bulimia, but more angered by the choices being made versus the health aspects, she can’t understand how a beautiful young girl could do such things to herself.

[DONNY] 14 to 21 years old, all ethnicities male. slightly overweight, ‘sensitive guy who we can all relate to,’ women find him trustworthy and endearing, picked on by other guys for his ability to show feelings, since ‘real men’ should never show such weakness, not a bad bone in his body, genuine.

[SIENNA] 11 to 13 years old, all ethnicities female. Emma’s younger sister who struggles to understand how the sister she looks up to and respects would abandon her goals and ambitions to reach for the unobtainable goal, delivers a heartfelt monologue about the death of her sister, ability to cry on cue.

[DYLAN] 15 to 21 years old, all ethnicities male. Good looking, cocky, arrogant teen on the outside, when we dig into his inner soul, we find out the reasons for his cold exterior, sensitive, but his father would never want to see this side of him, so he overcompensates by punishing those around him who demonstrate this ‘weakness’.

[MAURA] 15 to 21 years old, all ethnicities female. Smart teen with a good life, ignorant to the feelings of others, especially her best friend, Eliana, she has no problem getting guys and good grades, and assumes this is life for everyone, borders ‘b*tchy,’ but we never quite cross that line since it isn’t with ill-intent that she sees life in this way.

[ELIANA] 15 to 21 years old, all ethnicities female. Struggling with the typical self-image issues we all deal with, doesn’t have the ‘perfect’ body, but isn’t out of shape, struggles to have the confidence to talk to guys, and has to work harder for her grades, shy, but has a lot to say on the inside, but she usually keeps it in.

[ENSEMBLE] 13 to 21 years old, all ethnicities male or female. to play various other characters that make up the friends and families of the above characters, much variation and flexibility needed as these performers will interact as different characters throughout the show. Ensemble members have the same amount of stage time as the principal characters.
