Extreme Makeover: Signature in the Schools Edition

Adrian, a freshmen at Wakefield High school will not only be making his Signature in the Schools debut in Un-American but his first stage appearance since elementary school. Adrian walked into the audition room hoping to get a chance to work behind the scenes but director, David Zobell and playwright, Joe Calarco had something else in store for him. Inspired by his audition, Joe created the character of Alejandro for Adrian, a character that speaks almost exclusively in Spanish.

Up until Monday, one key feature of Adrian was his signature Bieber-style hair-do. As much as we loved the long hair on Adrian, Alejandro needed a slightly shorter look for the show. So our trusty costume designer, Leslie Cook, took him to Shirlington's own Hair Cuttery for a minor make-over.  Adrian left rehearsal on Monday scared but excited.  "Wish me luck!" he shouted to his cast as he left the theatre.

 Here is Adrian just moments before his makeover.  Emotions are running wild!

Thankfully Adrian was in good hands with the nice people of the Hair Cuttery.  They took good care of him and gave him quite the haircut!  Afterwards, he and his hairdresser posed for a picture.

 Adrian's hair hasn't been this short since he was in military school in Colombia!
Come see the transformation yourself at either of our public performances: Monday, February 6 and Friday, February 10 both at 7:30.  Tickets are free and seating is general admission.
