AUDITION SIDE FOR THE ROLE OF "LENA"

INT. HIGH SCHOOL - HALLWAY


ON ZOE’S CELLPHONE WE WATCH PERRY now running, scat-back like, dodging his defenders, every kid in the hall... until he’s caught up to Lena.

He hesitates for a beat, sucks it up, taps her on the shoulder.

In the bg, partially hidden by an open locker door, Jason and Devon witness.

Lena wheels, Perry gulps, he’s face to face with his goddess.

LENA
Uh-huh?

PERRY
Uh... Um, Lena. You know the
Harvest Moon Dance... thing?

LENA
Are you talking to me?

PERRY
Yeah, you know, the Dance,
the Harvest Moon Dance?

LENA
I’m so sure. Like I’m only in charge
of the decorations committee.


In the bg, Devon and Jason try not to totally crack up.


PERRY
Well, um, since you and Jason aren’t... uh,
well I wondered... I was wondering...


Perry glances around. Every eye from every kid is trained on him. The whole school is frozen in time.

MJ’s head is lowered, and both his eyes are on target.

Zoe covers her face with her hands, looks out between her fingers, and their candy purple-painted fingernails.

Perry turns back to Lena’s beatific face.

        PERRY (CONT'D)
Would you... um... the Harvest Moon
Dance, will go you with me? Um,
you know... I just thought since
we have so much in common and --


LENA
(blankly)
We do?

PERRY
Sure, you know, my Japanese folklore,
Tamiko, that Japanese guy...

Lena looks more confused.

         PERRY (CONT’D)
You were crying.

LENA
The other day in class?
Oh yeah, I had makeup in my eye.


Lena sees Jason’s sudden concern.

She paints on a smile, takes Perry by the arm, slides up next to him, looks to Paige and her crew to make sure all eyes are on her, which they are.

         LENA (CONT’D)
(smiley)
You know I only go out with popular...
I mean that’s what girls like me do, right?
(sizing him up)
So, do you do popular or something, Percy?

PERRY
Perry.

She brushes back Perry’s hair, makes sure Jason’s watching.

Perry can only shake his head.


LENA
Aw, too bad. I think you’re kinda cute.
(beat)
I tell you what, lemme think about it, okay?

Perry can only nod in shock.

Lena eyes Jason, turns to leave, but looks back, holds up her cell phone...
 

        LENA (CONT'D)
Call me.
