Tituss will be playing Mesmer, “an eccentric actor who makes a living posing as different characters, including a hypnotist, for birthday parties and events.”

Paula plays Principal Petersen, “a worked-up educator who takes her job much too seriously.”

As announced last fall, the young cast includes Darby Camp, Emmy Liu-Wang, Dallas Liu, Valentina Herrera, Alex Cooper Cohen and Ramon Rodriguez.

Here’s a synopsis: The Slumber Party depicts the hilarious aftermath of a sleepover birthday party hypnotism gone wrong as best friends Megan (Camp) and Paige (Liu-Wang), along with soon-to-be step-sister Veronica (Cooper Cohen), wake up with absolutely no memory of the night before. Now they must retrace their steps to find missing birthday girl Anna Maria (Herrera)… and explain why there’s a flock of baby ducks in the bathtub, what happened to Megan’s left eyebrow, and why she’s wearing unattainable hottie Jake Ramirez’s (Rodriguez) signature black hoodie.

Based on the YA novel by Jen Malone, the movie is directed by Veronica Rodriguez, with a script by Eydie Faye. Ron Howard and Brian Grazer executive produce for Imagine Kids+Family.

No release date has been set at this time, but stay tuned to JJJ for updates!
