Broadway Shows As Theatre Kids

Hamilton: really talented, woke af, want to hate them but can’t and never will

Lion King: senior, guaranteed a lead every time, universally adored

Matilda: The kid your director brings up from the middle school to play the child parts

Finding Neverland: says they like theatre, but really they only know disney, talks a lot about how messed up the original disney stories are

Something Rotten: actually really good, but always talks about how bad they did

Jersey Boys: the guy who wants to”give theatre a try”, the whole football team comes to see the show bc of him, the soccer team might show up too

Waitress: show mom, always has food, will fight anyone who was mean to her kids

School of Rock: watches the movie versions of the show the director picked and thinks that’s what the show is gonna be, doesn’t pay attention in rehearsal

Fun Home: gets all the female leads and all the guys want her, hella gay, her girlfriend is always at rehearsal

Beautiful: writes their own songs and posts them on youtube, check her out on bandcamp!

Les Miserables: shy kid with the amazing vibrato that no one expects (secretly a rebel)

An American in Paris: took dance since age of 3, not a huge fan of theatre, takes any chance to dance

Fiddler on The Roof: total dad, constant dad jokes, will crush you with a hug

Wicked: gets cast for her voice but can NOT act for the life of her

we will never be satisfied - bad-ass broadway feminists who have empowered women and changed the face of musical theatre
