SEEKING THE FOLLOWING ROLES:
ROBERT MARTIN: (20s-40) The groom-to-be who is deeply in love with Janet. He is the token 1920s leading man – debonair, dashing, and a matinee idol. He is cheesy, cheerful, and optimistic. Must move well and roller skate. Vocal range: Tenor (C3 – Ab4)
GEORGE: (20s-40s) Robert’s anxious best man. He is loyal, sincere, and nervous. Makes looking out for Robert’s interests his top priority so that the wedding will come off without a hitch. Must move well. Vocal range: Tenor (F3-Bb4)
THE DROWSY CHAPERONE: (30s-50s) Janet’s alcoholic confidante. Care-free, often because she is drunk. An experienced “woman of the world” who couldn’t care less what the world thinks. A melodramatic diva to be reckoned with who gleefully chews the scenery and steals just about every scene she is in. Great comedic role. Think Tallulah Bankhead meets Liza Minnelli meets Vera from “Mame”. Vocal range: Alto with strong belt (F3-D5)
GANGSTER (1 of 2): (20s-40s) Two jovial gangsters who are posing as pastry chefs. Typical 1920’s Broadway gangsters full of word play and stylized movements. Good comic timing and dancing skills required. Vocal range: Tenor (Db3-Gb4)
ENSEMBLE: (Males & Females, 20-40) A strong ensemble, all of whom play many characters (Tottendale’s staff, Monkeys, reporters, photographers, Chinese monks, wedding guests, etc.) Opportunities for featured dancers. All vocal ranges. All ensemble must move well. Special skills (acrobatics, juggling, etc.) a plus.
