The sixteen-member cast consists of 4 women and 4 men in the principal roles; ages late 20’s to early 40’s. There is one additional role that calls for a woman – any age. In addition, seven teens are needed to play younger versions of some principal characters. Mid-teens to early 20’s are encouraged to audition for those roles.
‘The Lost World’ tells the tale of a 20-Year High School Reunion attended by only six people. This is not just any six people – these are six individuals who claim to have hated High School the most. Brought together 20 years later by a common friend, the six former classmates find themselves face-to-face in a discount hotel ballroom for one fateful night of laughs, fights, tears, and soul-searching; as they drag their skeletons to the light in a bid to exorcise the personal demons that have haunted them since they last patrolled those hallowed halls of High School. Children of the Eighties now all grown up; they’re ‘The Breakfast Club’ thrust into the Facebook generation – leading them to pine for a simpler time; an age where if you wanted to connect with someone; you reached out and touched them; not texted, tweeted or Skyped. Their world is truly “The Lost World”.
