The cast of the original, non-musical "Schooling".

Creating a new character is a unique and fulfilling experience. Any actor in a New Work is leaving an indelible imprint on their character, and laying groudwork for every actor who follows. The singers at Abington will be using a libretto affected by the work of the actors at Oswego, who used a script rewritten after the reading at NCC.
Below are the names of the talented young actors at Oswego East High School who first developed the romantically confused denizens of "DaPonte Community High School" in the non-musical version of Schooling.

Freddy A high school senior, boastful and high-strung, in love with Dori Matt Adams
Billy A high school senior, upstanding and gullible, in love with Lilly Brendan Healy
Dori A high school senior, prom committee chair, in love with Freddy Danielle Swanson

Lilly A high school senior, naïve and true, in love with Billy Kylie Schoenecker

YES!! I'm so excited that Zach Hafenrichter got a part! He's going to be so good.

Ok, Matt Adams, I should tell you right now that this show depends on you. Forget Billy, this entire show is on your shoulders. KEEPING THAT IN MIND, let me tell you what I learned about the complicated nature that is Freddy.

1) Because of Freddy's nature, you're going to have to play him "shorter" than a normal character. If you could lose some height for this show, that would be great.

2) Freddy doesn't REALLY love Dori, its more that he's obsessed with Finding Nemo and he's stuck in his fantasy world of making out with Elenn DeGeneris's fish alter ego. It will play the same on stage, but it's important that your aware of this as your little "actor secret."

3) Freddy is colorblind. Use it.

Also, you might want to make out with Kylie Schoenecker. Just to make things akward. Audiences love tension.

I've said too much already, farewell!
