SEEKING THE FOLLOWING ROLES:
MARTHA WATSON (late 40s to mid 50s): Once a musical comedy star, now the general’s housekeeper at the Inn. She has a VERY dry, wry, honest wisecracking sense of humor. Big-hearted but completely unsentimental. She runs the GENERAL’s life in spite of his protestations. An irrepressible meddler but always for what she believes to be the other guy’s best interests. Seeking a winning, appealing character comedienne with a clarion belt voice. SEEKING
MIKE NULTY (late 20s to mid 30s): Strong singer, first or second tenor preferred but not absolutely necessary. Harassed, overworked, frustrated stage manager of Bob & Phil's show. A Jason Alexander/Nathan Lane-type comic actor, but not necessarily short and/or round. Covers RALPH SHELDRAKE. SEEKING
THE FOLLOWING ROLES HAVE BEEN CAST (seeking understudies as listed and/or considered for possible future replacements)
BOB WALLACE (late 20s to mid 30s, no older): Easygoing, charming, decent principled man. A major singing star in post-World War II America. He wears his fame easily, but is seeking something more important: a decent, fulfilling life and true love. While helping his Army unit general regain his dignity, he defines his own life and meets his true love. Seeking a superb singer with a crooning style who moves very well. Basic tap is a plus. Baritone. ROLE CAST
EZEKIEL FOSTER/MR. SNORING MAN (early 40s to early 50s): Heavy-set comic, character man. Excellent legit baritone. EZEKIEL: Vermont local with dry delivery who is a stagehand for the show and comes to love show business. MR. SNORING MAN: Passenger on the train to Vermont; vocal feature in the song “Snow”. This track also covers GENERAL WAVERLY. ROLE CAST
SUSAN WAVERLY (to play 9 years old): 49”-52” – no taller. The GENERAL’s granddaughter visiting from California for Christmas. A charming, loveable, and outgoing real kid – very intelligent, but knows nothing about show business. Once bitten by the showbiz bug, she demonstrates everything that is winning in the ultimate child performer. Excellent belt voice, must move well. Seeking UNDERSTUDY as well. ROLE CAST
PHIL DAVIS (late 20s to mid 30s, no older): The ambitious, go-getting, song-and-dance partner of the team of Wallace and Davis. An irrepressible clown, operator, incorrigible skirt-chaser... and definite ladies man. He saved BOB’s life during the war and became his partner and engine behind their fabulous success. He must have boyish charm and sex appeal. Strong tap and theatre jazz needed. Seeking a major song-and-dance comic performer. Bari-tenor. ROLE CAST
BETTY HAYNES (mid to late 20s): The sensible responsible half of the up-and-coming song-and- dance team the Haynes Sisters. She has a beautiful, rich singing voice that matches her decent, upstanding principles. She is overprotective of her younger sister and – like BOB – she needs something more. Of course they are ultimately the perfect couple. Seeking a major female singer of quiet beauty and charm with a rich chest-mix sound & a soprano extension. ROLE CAST
JUDY HAYNES (early 20s): The younger, more ambitious Haynes sister. While wholesome and adorable, she is sexy and flirty – a winning charmer no man can resist. Strong tap and theatre jazz needed. Seeking a major song-and-dance performer. Chest-mix. ROLE CAST
GENERAL HENRY WAVERLY (late 50s to mid 60s): A retired U.S. Army General, adjusting to returning to civilian life in post World War II America. Once a powerful leader now struggles to run an inn in Vermont. He remains a man of great principal and dignity. Beneath his hard, curmudgeon, military exterior, lays a warm compassionate man in need of family and love. Still a handsome, vital man. Non-singing role. ROLE CAST
RALPH SHELDRAKE (mid to late 30s): Former Army buddy of BOB and PHIL’s, now a major television executive with the Ed Sullivan Show. Fast-talking, New York professional. Covers BOB WALLACE. Baritone. ROLE CAST
