Characters (ages are suggestions)
all characters need strong comedic timing
The Main in Chair | age 35-60's
An exuberant yet hermited musical theater lover. He's falling apart at the seams and uses his record player to soothe his nerves. Our guide this evening, does not sing much but is present the entire show. Strong stage presence and incredible actor needed.
The Drowsy Chaperson | age 35-60's
A show-offish grande dame of the stage. Owns every bit of the scene. Drowsy is code for functional drunk.
Janet Van der Graaf | age 20-30's
True leading lady material. Triple threat and star of Feldzig's show. Leaving the theatre to lead a more domestic life, but is riddled with inner conflict.
Robert Martin | age 20-30's
"Clean cut" American man. Character vapid and cheery all around. Fiancee to Janet. Needs to tap, and roller-skate comfortably and blindfolded.
George | age 20-40's
The best man and best friend to Robert. A bit high strung and prone to explosive anger. Also needs to tap dance well.
Aldolpho | age 35-60's
A european ladies man. Also a bit dim and full of himself. Comedic foil to The Chaperone.
Mrs. Tottendale | age 50's+
Forgetful older woman who is hosting the wedding at her estate. Cheery regardless.
Underling | age 50's+
THE unflappable English butler. He is professional quick and eeriely present.
Feldzieg | age 40's+
Show director and owner of the theater. Desperate to keep his show running at any cost.
Kitty | age 20's+
Dancer for Feldzieg and ready to move center stage! Dating Feldzieg she hopes will improve her chances. Secretly sharp as a whip.
Trix | age 30's+
The aviatrix. A fun belter that flies a plane! Sassy and fun. Will also double as ensemble.
The Bakers | age Open
2 comedic gangster types posing as bakers. They have a vaudvillian comedic timing, and are never seen without the other. Preferably dancer types.
Male Ensemble | age Open
Men that will need to sing and dance as well as take on auxillary roles throughout the show. Will be very busy.
Female Ensemble | age Open
Women that will need to sing and dance as well as take on auxillary roles throughout the show. Will be very busy.
