Note: All ethnicities are encouraged to audition.
All roles are open

NATHAN DETROIT: (late 30’s-40’s) the lovable comic “mensch” beset upon on all sides-most importantly by his fiancée of 14 years with whom he is helplessly in love

MISS ADELAIDE: (late 30’s-40’s) the perennially cold-stricken star of the Hot Box Review where she dances in very little and sings like a trumpet – but is the opposite of brassy with a heart as big as all of New York

SKY MASTERSON: (early-mid 30’s) 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: (early-mid 20’s) ingénue with edge-passionate, self-assured, beautiful, naïve …underneath the crystal clear soprano and Salvation Army uniform is a woman waiting to explode

ARVIDE ABERNATHY: (60’s-early 70’s) Sarah’s grandfather-kind, loving, honest… nobody’s fool… wise to the ways of the world and the streets of New York…sings the ballad “More I Cannot Wish You” sweetly and simply

NICELY-NICELY JOHNSON: (late 20’s-30’s) …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: (late 20’s-30’s) …loyal to a fault, a bulldog on guard…comic gambler with his heart on his sleeve…terrific singer, dance a plus

BIG JULE: (late 30’s-40’s) Chicago gangster of such imposing size that his mere physical presence strikes fear into Nathan and 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 truly is as bad as his bark

LT. BRANNIGAN: (30’s-40’s) hard-nosed, full of himself, NYC detective on an obsessive mission to put the crap game out of commission …the constant thorn in Nathan’s side

GENERAL MATILDA B. CARTWRIGHT: (35-55) the battle ax, “by the book”, no-nonsense spinster who is in total charge of the Sav-a-Soul mission…a religious zealot and prude who makes an unexpected turnaround and surprises us with a powerful and rangy singing voice

MALE ENSEMBLE: singers and dancers of all shapes, ages, and sizes with classical musical theatre vocal chops, and infectious, distinct personalities to portray Nathan’s gang of gamblers…Harry the Horse, Society Max, Liver Lips Louie, Angie the Ox, Brandy Bottle Bates, Scranton Slim, etc

FEMALE ENSEMBLE: Singer/Dancers to portray our Hot Box Girls, Mission Girls, and a variety of New York types…seeking vibrant and funny women with true belt voices and a sense of sexy fun…who also look great wearing “next to nothing…which is what they usually wear” according Adelaide..
