ONE UNICORN VOCALIST - Female or Non-Binary. An utterly singular vocal force with stratospheric pipes and a strong sense of humor about herself and the show. Performs an unexpected set of pop hits and pub anthems with total self-seriousness.
SHIPS IN THE NIGHT
LEAD MC/SINGER - The part was written "on" a male actor but could be female or anywhere on the gender spectrum. It is important that this MC can play any and all genders in surprising ways. Vocal style: Glam rock singer, in the style of David Bowie, Rufus Wainright, Justin Vivian Bond. High, rock sound capable of singing "G's" and "A's" consistently. Ability to sing in falsetto range a plus. Must be VERY strong vocally and character acting as well as addressing the audience directly. Minimal dance/movement. All sizes and colors welcome. Will harness fly over the audience.
THE CHANTEUSE - Female/Gender non-conforming/Non-binary/Trans-femme – alto/mezzo-soprano with incredible vocal talent that’s comfortable with pop, R&B and jazz. Will take the lead on many songs - our host, we’re all here because they’ve invited us. Captivating, mysterious, magnetic. When they are in the room, we can’t take our eyes away. Elegant and sheltered. Loving and generous. The emotional center of the evening. Immersive performance experience a plus.
LILY - Female - singer/actor – pop/rock alto with incredible vocal talent, will take the lead on many songs and be part of a trio of back-up singers - will play Lily, Sofia’s wilder cousin. Spunky, fun, and mischievous, Energetic. Curious and inquisitive. Loving. Good comedic timing. Clown skills and experience a plus. Playing instruments a plus. Immersive performance experience a plus.

Think “evil sorceress”. Immersive performance experience a plus.
