The Hyper Aware Theater Company is casting Wild Blue, a full-length play inspired by Steven Slater's (in)famous farewell to Jet Blue last year. The piece works to tease out the humanity and history behind Slater's 15 seconds of fame, moving passed the obvious gimmicks of the incident and creating legitimate theater in the generally shallow world of pop culture.
Steven Slater: Caucasian, male, 25-35, a flight attendant with his life falling apart around him. Must be comfortable performing in underwear. Must be comfortable screaming. Must be comfortable sliding down a large inflatable slide. Must be comfortable getting sprayed with soda. LEAD
D. B. Cooper, male, 60-75, the only person to hijack a commercial airliner and never be caught. After parachuting out of a plane with $200,000 in the 70's, he went into hiding and is discovered by Steven living in a back woods cabin. A quirky, odd-ball recluse, DB takes Steven under his wing and mentors him on the trouble with society. Improv experience is a plus. LEAD
Winston Martinez, Hispanic, male, 15-25, a troubled teen immigrant that lives with D.B. Cooper in exchange for running errands, trying to get his life on track. Hispanic accent is a plus. SUPPORTING
Professor, male, 40-60, Hired to lecture the audience on-the-fly, regarding whatever happens, as it happens. Poor sense of humor a plus. SUPPORTING.
