Okay, so Adam assigned me to be in charge of producing the soundtrack.
I have messaged Hank asking him if we could cover some of his songs. Also, we could do some chameleon circuit?sons of admirals covers. I had an idea for one particular scene...
*A theatre nerd sits in chemistry, bored to death. She gets assigned to a science nerd as her lab partner. In the middle of her blissful daydreaming, she begins humming strange charm to herself. The science nerd, never really taking her into mind before, starts humming along with her. The lights dim, and are focused on the two of them as they finish the chorus together. At the end, he sends her a half-smile and says "So...you watch the vlogbrothers?"
*I also had this little idea about a preppy cheerleader who secretly loves minecraft or some other kind of game. She then meets another nerd, and they game together and become friends, to the great disapproval of her high-and-mighty peers.
See? It's like a chain affect. Nerds meeting nerds, getting together amidst all the peer pressure about being somebody you're not. A musical about embracing your inner nerd and finding out who you really are. We will have some references to things that already exist, and music that already exists...(like Hank's songs and maybe a Tardis noise or something).
I was thinking for the first song, for the opening act, we could have changing scenes of everyone in their own separate world...at sports practice, in a class, at home in a sticky situation with family, alone in a room, questioning sexuality...and they all sing different parts at the end, they join in the final chorus together. This first song could be about feeling lost and wishing you could be yourself.
We need to assign characters. Characters assigned to their type of nerd. We also need music writers and song writers. Please post any and all ideas in the comments. Thank you, and DFTBA.
