This is for the Planet Fitness High School Summer Pass.
We are looking for:
[JAKE (OCP)] 16 to 22 years old, all ethnicities man / boy. Lean, athletic build. Needs to look like a high schooler. The dedicated athlete who works out to better his body, and his soul. He’s the Troy Bolton of your favorite teen drama. He has a warm and approachable personality that makes you want to root for him. Certainly not a dumb jock, but probably leans more starting quarterback than valedictorian. Strong improv ability.
[MEGAN (OCP)] 16 to 22 years old, all ethnicities woman / girl. Open to all body types. Needs to look like a high schooler. The queen bee popular girl of the school. She’s effortlessly chic; the cool girl on every teen drama you’ve ever seen. She’s popular and probably the leader of the cool girl clique. But don’t worry, she’s not full mean girl. She learns not to judge others thanks to the Planet Fitness Judgement Free Zone. Strong improv ability.
[CHLOE (OCP)] 16 to 22 years old, all ethnicities woman / girl. Open to all body types. Needs to look like a high schooler. The ambitious second-in-command. She’s goal oriented with a seriously stacked resume. Chloe is the baby-faced girl that looks and acts sweet and friendly— a counter to Megan’s fierce popular girl vibes. She’s got ivy league ambitions. She’s more senior class president than cheer captain. Strong improv ability.
[CONNOR (OCP)] 16 to 22 years old, all ethnicities man / boy. Open to all body types. Needs to look like a high schooler. The fitness-curious bro who’s eager to learn about proper gym etiquette. He’s a super eager kid that tries hard to be cool and has a Hypebeast vibe. His performance should be similar to that of Tom from Parks and Rec, but a teenaged version. Strong improv ability.
[QUINN (OCP)] 16 to 22 years old, all ethnicities any gender or genderfluid. Open to all body types. Should look like high schooler. The soft-hearted oddball who’s well-versed in gym etiquette, often interjecting as the voice of reason. They’re calm, cool, and kind of zen. They don’t take themselves too seriously, often the peaceful mediator between friends. May or may not be seen hacky sacking in the quad between classes. Strong ability to improv.
[PF TEAM MEMBER (OCP)] 18 to 22 years old, all ethnicities woman, man. Open to all body types. Needs to look like a Freshman/Sophomore in college. Upbeat, charming, encouraging. They love working at Planet Fitness, and they’re eager to create a positive, fun gym experience for all the members. They have recently-graduated from high school. They’re a devoted employee that involves themselves in the teens’ drama in order to try and stay relevant, to varying effects. Charming, positive, upbeat, and friendly. Strong improv ability.
