Richard Roland will direct the 2 PM presentation of the musical that has book, music and lyrics by Joe Major. David John Madore will be musical director. Bernice Bobs Her Mullet is loosely based on the F. Scott Fitzgerald short story "Bernice Bobs Her Hair."
The cast will feature Call (American Idiot, Glory Days), Fitzgerald (9 to 5, The Producers) and Reid (Ghost, "Smash"), as well as Devon Buchanan, KC Comeaux, Natalie Hiatt, Dana Mierlak and Kassie Carroll as the show's title character.
Here's how the show is billed: "Bernice Bobs Her Mullet is the hilarious story of a young high school redneck who sets out to make something of her life in the bustling metropolis of Little Rock, Arkansas. As she encounters a social scene treacherous enough to rival Fitzgerald's original version, Bernice is soon swept up in the glamour and politics of popularity as she learns the hard way that you shouldn't let it... go to your head!"
