Production Description

Seeking nonunion submissions for "Debbie Does Dallas with book by Susan L. Schwartz and music and lyrics by Andrew Sherman, Tom Kitt & Jonathan Calicutt. Production states: "The most important theatrical event of the twenty-first century, 'Debbie Does Dallas' is a modern morality tale told as a comic musical of tragic proportions in the language of the rodeo-porno-football circus. The show is the coming-of-age story of an all-American small-town sweetheart named Debbie Benton, the captain of her high-school cheerleading team, who dreams of making it to the big time by becoming a Texas Cowgirl Cheerleader. When Debbie receives a letter telling her she has qualified for the professional squad, the only thing that stands between her and the realization of her dream is bus fare to the big city: Dallas. She enlists her teammates to form a company called Teen Services and get jobs to raise money, but when they learn that minimum-wage jobs just don’t pay enough, they agree to try their hands at “little favors” performed with enthusiasm by “good girls.” Based on the film of the same name, but without any actual sex or nudity."
