You could be the next Johnny Utah, brah.

If you have ever witnessed the ’90s blockbuster Point Break, you’re familiar with FBI rookie Utah—played by Keanu Reeves—who is forced undercover into the savage world of the L.A. surf community, riding gnarly waves and sparking an intense bromance in an attempt to take down a group of surfers who double as hard-knock bank robbers.

The cult classic, chock full of inspirational dialog and the sun-bleached locks of Patrick Swayze, couldn’t be confined to the screen alone. Point Break Live, a theatrical parody of some of Reeves’ finest work, is coming to Underground Arts on September 6th, and producer Bonfire Shows wants to know: R U Keanu?

Point Break Live (described as “lowbrow brilliant” by New York magazine) typically selects a random audience member to play the part of Utah in each show, but you have the chance to audition early, and score four free front row tickets while doing so. Post your best Johnny Utah impression to Vine, making sure to tag @BonfireShows and hashtagging #IAmAnFBIAgent. The most liked video will be awarded four free front row seats to the show.

Point Break Live, Saturday, September 6th, 7 p.m., $20-30, Underground Arts, 1200 Callowhill Street.
