Additional Info

Bunked!: The Musical is a touching coming of age comedy about five summer camp counselors during that pivotal summer before the beginning of college. With easily relatable characters experiencing their first tastes of independence and a catchy pop score, Bunked! taps into the uncertainty of trying to find oneself while forging first adult relationships. Exploring themes of first loves, growing up, and identity, the show asks the questions "who am I?" "where do I belong?" and "how do I make a name for myself?" with both humor and poignancy.

Casting

3m, 2f
ANABEL – Nerdy, bookish, very quirky girl, Oliver’s sister (need not look alike) and love interest for Stewart. Very likable in a geeky, mousy kind of way. Pop soprano, must have strong belt and mix.
CARMEN – Strong, brassy city girl who makes perhaps the biggest emo-tional journey at camp. Love interest for Max. Must be able to play both sassiness and vulnerability. Pop alto or soprano, must have a strong belt.
MAX – The golden boy with a heart to match, whose summer plans are thrown for a loop when a secret is revealed. Love interest for Carmen. Must be very likeable in an earthy, wholesome kind of way. Pop baritone/tenor.
STEWART – Confused and directionless dreamer, he spends the summer searching for what he is going to do with his life. Bisexual, a love interest for both Anabel and Oliver (must be believably straight or gay). Pop tenor.
OLIVER – The openly gay teenage boy (but not stereotypically gay) who wants to be the center of attention, yearning to make it in the big city. Anabel’s adopted brother (need not look alike) and gay love interest for Stewart. Pop tenor.
