Co-Created by Cameron Mackintosh
Rehearsals beginning August 5, 2019
A Musical based on the stories of P.L. Travers and the Walt Disney film.

Bert (This role has been cast) - The narrator of the story, is a good friend to Mary Poppins. An everyman, Bert has many occupations, including hurdy-gurdy player, sidewalk artist and chimney sweep. Bert watches over the children as well as the goings on in Cherry Tree Lane. He has charm, speaks with a Cockney accent and is a song-and-dance man. Gender: Male | Age: 30 to 35 | Vocal: Baritone

George Banks - The father to Jane and Michael Banks, is a banker to the very fiber of his being. Demanding "precision and order" in his household, he is a pipe-and-slippers man who doesn't have much to do with his children and believes that he had the perfect upbringing by his nanny, the cruel Miss Andrew. His emotional armor, however, conceals a sensitive soul. A baritone, George may speak-sing as necessary. Gender: Male | Age: 40 to 45 | Vocal range: Baritone

Winifred Banks - George's wife and Jane and Michael's mother. A former actress, she is loving and distracted homemaker who is busy trying to live up to her husband's desire to only associate with "the best people" as well as be the model wife and mother. She suffers from the conflicting feelings that she's not up to the job of "being Mrs. Banks," yet, she is, and more. She has great warmth and simplicity to her tone. Gender: Female | Age: 30 to 35 | Vocal: Mezzo-Soprano

Jane - The high-spirited daughter of Mr. and Mr. Banks, is bright and precocious but can be willful and inclined to snobbishness. Gender: Female | Age: 11 to 12 | Vocal: Soprano

Michael - The cute and cheeky son of Mr. and Mrs. Banks. Excitable and naughty, he adores his father and tries to be like him. Both he and Jane misbehave in order to get the attention of their parents. Gender: Male | Age: 9 to 10 | Vocal: Boy Soprano

Katie Nanna - Jane and Michael's nanny at the beginning of the show. Overwhelmed and upset, she has absolutely had her fill of the Banks children. Gender: Female | Age: 30 to 30

Policeman - A neighborhood fixture who is respected by and observant of households on his beat. Gender: Male | Age: 30 to 40

Miss Lark - The haughty next-door neighbor of the Banks family who treats her dog, Willoughby, as if her were child. Gender: Female | Age: 30 to 35

Admiral Boom/Bank Chairman - A retired Royal Navy man and neighbor of the Banks family. A physically large man with a loud and booming voice, he speaks in Navy jargon and has a soft spot for his neighbor, Miss Lark. Can be any vocal range as needed. Gender: Male | Age: 50 to 50 | Vocal: Baritone

Mrs. Brill - The housekeeper and cook for the Banks family. Overworked and harassed, she's always complaining that the house is understaffed. Her intimidating exterior is a cover for the warmth underneath. Mrs. Brill doesn't have a high opinion of nannies in general and Mary Poppins in particular. She does not have to be a strong singer. Gender: Female | Age: 40 to 50 | Vocal: Alto

Robertson Ay - The houseboy to the Banks family. Lazy, sleepy and grumbling, he never gets things right and believes himself to be useless. He doesn't do a lot of singing, but his "Spoonful" solo can be a fun surprise. Gender: Male | Age: 20 to 40 | Vocal: Tenor

Mary Poppins - Jane and Michael Banks's new nanny. She is extraordinary and strange, neat and tidy, delightfully vain yet particular, and sometimes a little frightening but always exciting. She is practically perfect in every way and always means what she says. A mezzo soprano with strong top notes, she should be able to move well. She can have a more traditional soprano sound, but precision and diction is the key. Gender: Female | Age: 20 to 30 | Vocal range: Mezzo Soprano

Park Keeper (ensemble) - Uniformed and officious, he makes sure no one breaks park regulations. His life is defined by rules, but he secretly hankers after his childhood. Gender: Male | Age: 20 to 40

Neleus (ensemble) - The statue of a young boy posed with a dolphin in the park. Neleus was separated from his father, Poseidon, and misses him very much. A small and lonely being, he is very happy to befriend Jane and Michael. This role is a wonderful opportunity to feature one of the strong dancers in your ensemble. Gender: Male | Age: 16 to 26 | Vocal: Tenor

Queen Victoria (ensemble) - A statue in the park. Gender: Female | Age: 30 to 50

Miss Smythe (ensemble) - The Bank Chairman's humorless secretary. Gender: Female | Age: 20 to 40

Von Hussler (ensemble) - A businessman seeking a loan from the bank for a shady business deal. He speaks with a German accent. Gender: Male | Age: 30 to 40

John Northbrook (ensemble) - An honest businessman seeking a loan to build a factory for his community. He speaks with an accent from Northern England. Gender: Male | Age: 30 to 40

Bird Woman (ensemble) - Covered in a patchwork of old shawls, and her pockets are stuffed with bags of crumbs for the birds. She tries to sell her crumbs for the birds. She tries to sell her crumbs to passersby, who ignore her as if she doesn't exist. Sings "Feed the Birds." There can be a gruff, folksy quality to her voice that reflects the hardness of her life. Gender: Female | Age: 40 to 60 | Vocal: Alto

Mrs. Corry (ensemble) - Owns a magical gingerbread shop. She is a mysterious woman of great age who speaks with a Caribbean accent (or any accent that would make her seem exotic). Gender: Female | Age: 30 to 40 | Vocal: Soprano

Miss Andrew (ensemble) - George's overbearing and scary nanny. With her bottle of nasty-tasting brimstone and treacle to keep naughty children in line, she is a bully who only knows one way of doing things - her way. A soprano with an alto belt, there can be some heaviness to her voice along with range. Gender: Female | Age: 40 to 50 | Vocal: Soprano

Ensemble - Annie, Fannie, Valentine, Teddy Bear, Mr. Punch, Doll, Chimney Sweeps, Toys, Parkgoers.

Buddy embarks on a journey to discover his true identity and is determined to win over his new family. This modern day holiday classic reminds us that the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.

Buddy - Born a human but raised at the North Pole as a Christmas Elf, Buddy is eager to find his place in the world. He is a child at heart and that child-like curiosity makes him both endearing and gets him into trouble. Gender: Male | Age: 25 to 35 | Vocal: Tenor

Deb - Walter's secretary. Takes an instant liking to Buddy simply for the novelty of it. Though she aims to please and is a bit of a suck-up, she feels under appreciated. Gender: Female | Age: 25 to 55 | Vocal: Alto

Manager - A heavy-set manager at Macy's. He is a good, friendly guy just trying to do his job and get by. Gender: Male | Age: 35 to 40 | Vocal: Bari-tenor

Greenway - Walter's boss. He is what Walter will become if he continues down the path he is on. A tyrannical, workaholic who cares nothing about the people around him or who work for him. Gender: Male | Age: 55 to 65 | Vocal: Tenor

Santa - Just another workingman. Loves his job and Christmas, but also likes to kick-back and watch the game when a rare opportunity arises. A natural storyteller. Gender: Male | Age: 65 to 80 | Vocal: Baritone

Chadwick - One of Walter's right-hand men. He is desperate to keep his job, and perhaps the dumber of the two. Gender: Male | Age: 40 to 50

Matthews - One of Walter's right-hand men. He is desperate to keep his job and is the schemer of the two. Gender: Male | Age: 35 to 40

Admissions
By Joshua Harmon
Rehearsals beginning February 3, 2020

The head of an admissions department and the Headmaster at a prep school are fighting to diversify the student body. Personal ambition collides with progressive values when their son sets his sights on an Ivy League university. This controversial drama explores the ideals and contradictions of liberal white America.

Sherri Rosen-Mason - late 40’s–early 50's; a very liberal secular-Jewish woman. Head of Admissions for Hillcrest. Has a warrior's spirit, a fighter. As hard as she fights at work, she fights even harder for her kid. Even when he doesn't make it easy.

Bill Mason - late 40’s–early 50's; a very liberal WASP and Sherri's husband. Head of the School at Hillcrest. Has lived a pretty charmed life, for the most part. Firmly believes he is always right, and acts accordingly; in other words, leaves little room for doubt. Assertive in his opinions, decisive.

Charlie Luther Mason - 18, Bill & Sherri's son, a senior at Hillcrest. Precocious and intelligent. His anger can overtake him, but he doesn't lead with it. At his core, he's a sweet kid. Like lots of kids his age, he can quickly become a devout believer in newly adopted philosophies.

Ginnie Peters - late 40's-early 50's; very liberal, WASP, stay-at-home mom, her son is Charlie's best friend, and she is one of Sherri's closest friends. Unlike Sherri, who has mastered work-life balance, Ginnie's easily overwhelmed, even as she has much less on her plate.

Roberta - mid 60’s-early 70's. Has worked in administration at Hillcrest for many years. She is warm and means well, if also obstinate and stubborn. When she offends, it is unwittingly; her confusion is genuine. The world is changing faster than she can keep up.

Fade
By Tanya Saracho
Rehearsals beginning July 20, 2020

Lucia, a young writer, quickly becomes friends with a studio janitor named Abel. As they share stories, similar plots begin to find their way into the TV script. Fade is a play about class, race, and how status does not change who you are at your core.

Lucia - 28, Mexican-born, acculturated. When in Mexico one would call her a "Fresa" but here, she's just an Americanized Mexican who navigates the codeswitching between Spanish and English as well as the rest of her (globalized) generation

Abel - Early 30's, born in the U.S. Mexican-American but quite Mexicanized. Born and raised in LA, proud of his Mexican heritage.

All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914
By Peter Rothstein
Musical Arrangements by Erick Lichte & Timothy C. Takach
Rehearsals beginning November 25, 2019

Out of the violence comes a silence, then a song. Thus begins an extraordinary night of camaraderie, music, and peace. A remarkable true experience, told in the words and songs of the men who lived it during WWI.
