Casting: show calls for 3 women and 4 men.
Please note: male lead of Aaron has been cast.
Casey – Late 20s-30s, female. Mezzo-Soprano with a strong belt-mix voice.
Daring, bold, and delightfully controversial. All as a defense mechanism
Man#1 (Jewish Chorus/Gabe/Edgy British Guy) – 25-40; Male, any ethnicity Baritenor range.
GABE is the mega dude/womanizer. Has every answer to every question about women that has ever been asked. And probably has a catch phrase to go with that answer. Aaron's best friend since childhood. EDGY ROCKER/BRITISH GUY are bad boys from Casey's past. Cocky and neglectful, they are overcompensating.
Woman #1 (Grandma Ida/Lauren/Female with Megaphone #2/Aaron's Mother) – 25-40, Female, Mezzo-Soprano with a strong belt-mix voice.
Casey's sister, LAUREN is happily (somewhat) married to her highly successful husband, Kevin, and wonders out loud why Casey can't break her bad habits and learn how to catch a winner. Constantly trying to fix Casey, Lauren is more concerned with listening to her own advice than actually helping her sister. GRANDMA IDA is Aaron's dead grandmother, who feels strongly that her son should marry a Jewish woman.
Man #2 (Reggie/Aaron's Future Son/Edgy Rocker Guy) – Late 20s-30s. Male, tenor.
REGGIE is Casey's fabulously fierce gay and over-imaginative best friend. Easily sent into a tailspin of jealousy, paranoia, and drama. EDGY ROCKER/BRITISH GUY are bad boys from Casey's past. Cocky and neglectful, they are overcompensating.
Woman #2 (Jewish Chorus/Allison/Google Girl/Female with Megaphone #1) – 25-35, female Mezzo-Soprano with a strong belt-mix voice.
Aaron's ex-fiancé. Gorgeous, sexy, uptight, conservative, controlling, manipulative.
Man #3 (Waiter/Casey's Christian Father/Friendly Therapist) – 35-45, male, baritenor.
A career waiter, who dabbles with songwriting and performing on the side. A romantic. He wants nothing more than for love to blossom in his restaurant. A closet poet as well. CASEY's CHRISTIAN FATHER is a stereotype super-Christian, praising the Easter Bunny and denouncing Judaism.
Auditioners are encouraged to perform a musical selection no longer than 16 to 32 bars that showcases their voice. Piano accompaniment will be provided only if the auditioner brings clearly printed and easy to read piano sheet music. No appointments needed, walk-ins welcome!
