The birth of a legend is occurring. Not Santa Claus, not the Tooth Fairy,
but THE ON CALL TEDDY BEAR. Is he a man or is he a teddy bear? It's not
important, but it is hilarious. The story shows his fall from grace and his
rise from the ashes. Full of heart, with a mix of smart and silly humor,
"The On-Call Teddy" is a story that anyone who has ever been a child can
relate to.

Available Roles:
Teddy : a man in a bear suit (20-30)
Crystal : a prostitute with a heart of gold (20-30) Kevin : a child, who
hasn?t had an easy go in life (10-12) John : one of Crystal's clients
(30-70) Teddy's parents : they strip away Teddy's childhood (30-40)
Bartender : Serving up drinks for Teddy and Crystal (any age) Mr. Sturtze :
interviews Teddy for an office job (50+) We'll also need a few kids aged
5-11 who will be the kids that Teddy learns to help


Laura is a teaching assistant. She can't help but make fun of her student's
overwritten and incomprehensible essays. Jacob, one of Laura's English 101
students, over uses some especially silly and sexually charged language. The
jokes quickly snowball and Laura is dared to write suggestive comments as
the feedback to Jacob's essay. Laura gets caught up in a dirty email
exchange disguised as suggestions on how Jacob can improve his writing. Soon
she's in over her head realizing that she's actually sort of attracted to
the kid.

TEACHER is a dramatic comedy. It's a story about school, attraction, and
taking risks.

Teacher will require a significant time commitment and involve multiple
rehearsals throughout the month of October. The film will shoot over a 4 day
period the week of November the 8th.
