Sign of the Apocalypse: “Octomom the Musical” Now Casting

Just when you thought things couldn’t get any weirder than Kim Kardashian’s wig making headlines in the Los Angeles Times, a new musical about Octomom Nadya Suleman is under way — and is, in fact, currently casting at a theater just a few blocks away from my house.

Hmmmm… I’ve already got the belly.   And I really do kick ass in singing “Shoop” at karaoke.  All I need to do is add a few pounds to my lips and lose a few marbles, and the lead role could be mine, all mine!

Producers released a description of what it takes to play Octomom:

[OCTO AND VARIOUS] Female, Mid 20’s – mid 30’s. Funny, whimsical, but not too charactery. She should be able to command authority, play broad range of facial expressions plus physical comedy. Sketch and improv experience a plus. Likable, energetic and at the same time able to be emotionally expressive and believable.  Can handle musical theatre and pop styles a plus.  Actress who can move.

Oh, they want me to move?  Forget it.

Possible songs for the production include:

–Gold Digger

–Crazy (“I remember when, I remember, I remember when I lost my mind.  There was something so pleasant about that clinic…”)

–C’mon ‘N Ride It (“It’s the gravy train…”)

–I’m Bringing BastersBack

Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
