‘One Life’ Casting Call: High School Angst
(SoapOperaNetwork) — More drama is on the way for certain members of Llanview’s teen scene.
“OLTL” has released yet another new casting call, this time for the role of a “Vice Principal.” The scene opens with him addressing the parents of two teenage boys, asking them if they know one another. “Mr. Levy” assures him that they have met and asks what this is all about. The Vice Principal tells him that the proceeds from the Booster Club rally have gone missing, thanks the parents for allowing them to search their sons’ lockers, and comments that it was a lot easier than dragging the police into the situation. As Mr. Levy wonders why his son would steal since they are wealthy, while the Vice Principal opens his son’s locker only to find it empty. Undeterred, the V.P. orders the other boy’s locker open since he was the one pointing fingers and in charge of the money. Just as they are about to open it, the “Janitor” walks by and hands the Vice Principal an envelope, saying that he thinks it is what they are looking for, and that it was found in “Sean’s” locker. Mr. Levy tells Sean’s mom that her son is a thief and a liar. The Vice Principal gives Mr. Levy his thanks for coming down to the school, and informs Sean’s mother that her son will be suspended for three days. He goes on to tell her that Sean’s grades have fallen and he has become hostile toward his classmates. As the scene ends, he instructs her that Sean is to write a letter of apology to both the Booster Club and to the boy he wrongly accused of taking the money.
While the names have been changed in this audition script, as per usual “OLTL” policy, it is evident that this script likely involves Shane (Austin Williams), who has recently been experiencing some problems at school. On a related note, look for Shane’s bullying problems to take an interesting turn in late February.
