Audition Description

It’s the brassy, bright, and promising year of 1959. Boston’s Colonial Theatre is host to the opening night performance of a new musical. When the leading lady mysteriously dies on stage the entire cast & crew are suspects. Enter a local detective, who just happens to be a musical theatre fan to save the show, solve the case, and maybe even find love before the show reopens. All without getting killed himself.

With music by John Kander and lyrics by Frank Ebb, this Tony-winning Broadway classic is not to be missed.

 

Lt. Frank Cioffi

Sweetly endearing local Boston detective who idolizes the world of musical theatre and has reveled in the thrill of performing in community theatre. Called upon to solve the murder of the star of Robin Hood¯ (a musical intended for Broadway that is currently out of town in Boston), Cioffi is very good at his job and, lamentably, married to his work. He is instantly smitten with Niki Harris. The undisputed central character of the musical. Requires deft and charming comedy, good singing, solid dancing in one extended Fred and Ginger number.

Baritone. Ab (two below middle C) to E (above middle C).

Gender: Male

Ethnicity: Any

Age: 30 - 49

 

Niki Harris

Pretty, almost too innocent, a local performer in a small role hoping RobinHood will be the Boston production that at last takes her to Broadway. Love interest for Lieutenant Cioffi, apparently reciprocated. Requires a legit soprano and strong dancing in an extended Fred and Ginger number. Great Comic Timing!

Mezzo, Middle C to E (above middle C).

Gender: Female

Ethnicity: Any

Age: 20 – 33  

 

Carmen Bernstein

Brash and Brassy Broadway Producer.  Terrific comedic actress with a belt.

Mezzo, Eb (below middle C) to E (two above middle C).

Gender: Female

Ethnicity: Any

Age: 45 – 65

 

Georgia Hendricks

Female half of our songwriting team. She ends up taking on the leading lady role and still has a soft spot for her former husband. Must sing and dance well.

Mezzo, G (below middle C) – E (two above middle C).

Gender: Female

Ethnicity: Any

Age: 30 – 40

 

Aaron Fox

The composer of the show-within-the-show. His songwriting partner, Georgia, is also his wife, from whom he's separated but for whom he still pines. He's a handsome, intense, somewhat tortured artist-type. Requires a strong vocalist with comedy. 

Tenor/high bari, Bb (two below middle C) to Gb (above middle C).

Gender: Male

Ethnicity: Any

Gender: Male

Ethnicity: Any

Age: 30 - 49

 

Sidney Bernstein

The always-angry, sleazy, philandering producer of the out-of-town flop. Sidney is rough around the edges and completely self-serving. Requires a cartoon-like character actor who is funny on arrival. No singing required. Good Comic Timing!

Gender: Male

Ethnicity: Any

Age: 57 – 66

 

Christopher Belling

English actor. Very campy. Very funny. Wonderful role, requiring strong comic actor.

Gender: Male

Ethnicity: English

Age: 40 - 65

 

Bambi Bernet

Performer in the chorus, daughter of Carmen, step-daughter of Sidney. Genuinely brassy and artificially blonde. Hungry to work her way out of the chorus; many think she was only hired because of her mother. She surprises everyone, however, when she shows genuine dancing and singing talent when at last called upon. Requires great dancing, strong street-smart dumb blonde, comedy, and singing.

Mezzo, middle C to C (above middle C).

Gender: Female

Age: 21-33

 

Oscar Shapiro  

From the garment district and sole investor in Robbin Hood. A likeably gruff man who knows nothing about theatre and frets over every dime of his monies spent. Requires good rough around the edges comedy and singing.

Baritone, Bb (two below middle C) to E (above middle C).

Gender: Male

Ethnicity: Any

Age: 45 – 65

 

Bobby Pepper

The Gene Kelly of Robbin Hood, its choreographer and male star, and a handsome rival to Aaron for Georgia’s affection. Requires strong dancing, singing, comedy.

Baritone, A (two below middle C) – E (above middle C).

Gender: Male

Ethnicity: Any

Age: 30 – 43

 

Daryl Grady

Caustic and smug theatre critic for the local Boston newspaper. Patronizingly pompous, enjoys using his power to make or break shows during their Boston tryouts. Does not require strong singing or dancing.

Gender: Male

Ethnicity: Any

Age: 30 – 49

 

Johnny (Joanna) Harmon

Stage Manager of the show-within-the-show, and both drill sergeant and mother hen to the cast. Barks orders but has a pleasant side as well, he keeps the company in line and on their toes throughout the rehearsal process. Comic actor who can sing.\

Gender: Male or Female

Ethnicity: Any

Age: 30 – 69

 

Jessica Cranshaw

Faded Hollywood star, a grand diva with no right to be one, and a plague to the show-with-the-show and to her cast. An absolutely dreadful singer and inept actress who stars in the show-within-a-show and gets murdered on its opening night in Boston. Must be skillful enough to sing hilariously out-of-tune and ineptly, and adroit enough to dance perfectly out of step with the rest of the cast. Appears only in the first minutes of the musical; on Broadway, this performer then adopted a different look and became part of the ensemble.  Steals the opening number!!!

Gender: Female

Ethnicity: Any

Age: 40 – 69
