BREAKDOWN

About the show:

A USO performance from the Andrews Sisters is in jeopardy of cancellation when they fail to appear shortly before curtain. Thankfully, three earnest stagehands are determined to go on with the show – in DRAG! The Andrews Brothers is filled to the brim with 30 songs made famous by The Andrews Sisters and other top artists of the era, including the showstoppers “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree,” "Three Little Sisters," and “Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive." Mistaken identities and madcap adventures—imagine Bing Crosby and Bob Hope in a road movie of Some Like It Hot—along with the music of an entire generation highlight this wonderful valentine to the heroes of World War II.

Setting: Backstage and onstage at a USO show on a small island in the South Pacific, 1945

Please note: Max, Lawrence and Patrick need to be believable as siblings, as well as pass for the Andrews Sisters while in drag. At least from far, far away.

Max Andrews – Male, 25 – 40, all ethnicities. Max is the oldest of the three brothers, and takes on the role of older brother. His Andrews Sisters counterpart is Maxene. His 4F ailment is flat feet. He is the stage manager and strives to remain in charge in the face of total disaster. VOCAL RANGE: Baritone/Bass. Must be able to sing intricate harmonies.
Lawrence Andrews – Male, 25 – 40, all ethnicities. Lawrence is the middle brother, and takes on that role. His Andrews Sisters counterpart is LaVerne. His 4F ailment is incredibly poor eyesight. Wears thick glasses. He is perhaps a little resentful of his older brother, and always ready to crack jokes at his expense. VOCAL RANGE: Tenor. Must be able to sing intricate harmonies.

Patrick Andrews – Male, 25 – 40, all ethnicities. Patrick is the baby brother of the other two, and Max and Lawrence are careful to take care of him. His Andrews Sisters counterpart is Patty. His 4F ailment is asthma. When he gets nervous, Patrick wheezes heavily. When he gets really nervous, he stutters. When he gets incredibly nervous, he faints. He sings lead in Act II— front and center as Patty. VOCAL RANGE: Tenor/Baritone. Must be able to sing intricate harmonies.

Peggy Jones – Female, 25 – 40, all ethnicities. A cross between Betty Hutton and Betty Grable, Peggy is a WWII pin-up girl, and she longs to show everyone she's more than just another pretty face. Warm, loving, and sincere. VOCAL RANGE: Mezzo/Soprano. Must be able to sing intricate harmonies.
