NATHAN DETROIT: Late 30s to 40s.
Baritone to high F. A lovable, neurotic "mensch" beset upon on all
sides, most importantly by his fiancée of fourteen years with whom he is
in love but is still not ready to commit to.
SKY MASTERSON: Late 20s to 30s.
Baritone B to Eb. Smooth, smart, handsome. Women love him, men want to
be him. Totally, confidently in charge until he meets his match in the
mission doll who unexpectedly steals his heart. Sings like a dream and
moves with style and flair.
SARAH BROWN: 20s. Soprano to high A. An
ingénue with an edge—passionate, self-assured, beautiful, and naïve.
Underneath the crystal-clear soprano and Salvation Army uniform is a
woman who eventually becomes open to the world around her.
NICELY-NICELY JOHNSON: 20s to 40s. Tenor to high Bb.
The name says it all. An irrepressible personality with a penchant for
snacks. Thrilling theatre tenor for "Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat."
BENNY SOUTHSTREET: 20s to 40s. Baritone
to high G. Loyal to a fault, a benign bulldog on guard. Comic gambler
with his heart on his sleeve. Strong singer.
BIG JULE: 30s to 50s. Chicago gangster
of such imposing size that his mere physical presence strikes fear into
the guys. Needs comic chops to carry the sewer scene. Could also go with
a very small in stature actor—the dangerous chihuahua whose bite is
truly as bad as his bark
HARRY THE HORSE: 20s to 50s. Comic
gangster who is sidekick and mouthpiece to Big Jule. Large speaking
LT. BRANNIGAN: 30s to 50s. Hard-nosed,
NYC detective on an obsessive mission to put the crap game out of
commission. The constant thorn in Nathan's side.
MALE ENSEMBLE: Singers/dancers of all
shapes, ages, and sizes with classical musical theatre vocal chops, and
infectious, distinct personalities to portray Nathan's gang of gamblers:
Rusty Charlie, Society Max, Liver Lips Louie, Angie the Ox, Brandy
Bottle Bates, Scranton Slim, etc.
FEMALE ENSEMBLE: Singer/dancers to
portray Hot Box Girls, Mission Girls, and a variety of New York types.
Vibrant, versatile, and funny.
PLEASE NOTE: The roles of Miss
Adelaide, Arvide, and General Cartwright have been cast.
