TORONTO — Canadian rock singers, here's your chance to be in "American Idiot." Producers say they'll hold an open casting call on Saturday in Toronto for the national Broadway tour of the Tony Award-winning musical, which is based on the Green Day album. Auditions will take place at 11 a.m. ET at the downtown Roy Thomson Hall. Casting agents from New York's Roundabout Theatre say they're looking for male and female rock singers in their early to late 20s. The show follows three working-class, lifelong friends who are forced to choose between their dreams and the safety of suburbia. Songs include "Boulevard of Broken Dreams," "Holiday" and "21 Guns." Dancap Productions will present the Canadian premiere of "American Idiot" at the Toronto Centre for the Arts on Dec. 28.

“Casting call for ‘American Idiot’”

There certainly is no shortage.
Any Obozo voter would easily qualify.

Apparently this is a casting call for some musical that appeared on Broadway, in 2009.

At first I was worried you guys had a shortage of idiots down there!

We have absolutely no shortage of idiots, and we store them in wonderful, magical land called, Washington, DC.

Canadian Idiot - Weird Al Yankovic

Don’t want to be a Canadian idiot
Don’t want to be some beer swillin’ hockey nut
And do I look like some frostbitten hosehead?
I never learned my alphabet from A to Zed

They all live on donuts and moose meat
And they leave the house without packin’ heat
Never even bring their guns to the mall
And you know what else is too funny
Their stupid monopoly money
Can’t take ‘em seriously at all

Well maple syrup and snow’s what they export
They treat curling just like it’s a real sport
They think their silly accent is so cute
Can’t understand a thing they’re talking aboot

Sure they got their national health care
Cheaper meds, low crime rates and clean air
Then again well they got Celine Dion
Eat their weight in Kraft macaroni
And dream of driving a Zamboni
All over Saskatchewan

Don’t want to be a Canadian idiot
Won’t figure out the temperature in Celsius
See the map they’re hovering right over us
Tell you the truth it makes me kinda nervous

Always hear the same kind of story
Break their nose and they’ll just say sorry
Tell me what kind of freaks are that polite?
It’s gotta mean they’re all up to something
So quick before they see it coming
Time for a preemptive strike

That doesn't apply when Canadian Liberals are trying to undermine what America stands for. Our Libs are just as bad as yours.

...how would we ever fence in DC?

Just get a fleet of orange pickups and put an "Exit closed Use Next exit" sign on all of the exit ramps on the beltway...and wait for them to run out of gas.
