PLOT

MAD LIBS LIVE!  is the new musical based on the most popular word game of all time!

Our story begins at the finals of Teen Superstars, the live TV show that will determine the most popular singing group at Blankville Central High.

Virtuosa, GoGo, Geyser, and Merrily seem to have nothing in common – until just before airtime, when they realize that their songs are missing words!

In the spirit of the "World's Greatest Word Game," our gang fills in the blanks with words from the audience!  This truly interactive musical changes at every performance – thanks to the audience!

Will GoGo get the girl?  Will Geyser make new friends?  Will Merrily come out of her shell?  Will Virtuosa get out of the spotlight?  And who will be the next Teen Superstars?

CHARACTERS

All roles can be played by actors ages 14-30.

MERRILY – 16. Empathic, cheerful, smart, but lacks confidence. 
RYAN SEABLANK – The M.C. for the evening. (No singing/dancing required)
VIRTUOSA – 16. Self-involved, desperate for fame. (Think Rachel from "Glee.") GOGO is her older brother.
GEYSER – 14. The "new kid." Quirky, into video games, sci-fi and outer space. His speech cadence often resembles that of a sci-fi space captain.
GOGO – 17. Active, athletic. Exhibits leadership qualities, but can be overly competitive. VIRTUOSA is his younger sister.
DYLAN – 16. The lead singer of No Direction. Massive ego. He stole away GOGO's girlfriend, Lindsey. 

Soundtrack can be found on Spotify.
