SEEKING:

NATHAN DETROIT
Late 20s-Early 40s, any ethnicity. Baritone up to high F. A rogue and a gambler but also a respected leader of his gang of ne’er do wells. Comedic and charming but a bit strapped for cash. A consummate businessman with divided loyalties. Adelaide’s fiancé.

MISS ADELAIDE
Late 20s-Early 40s, any ethnicity. Mezzo to A. A showgirl with a heart of gold and a perpetual, psychosomatic cold. Easy-going, electric, comedic tour-de-force. Smarter than she’s given credit for. Very aware of how very long she’s been engaged to Nathan.

SKY MASTERSON
Late 20s-Early 40s, any ethnicity. Baritone up to E-flat. Smart, charming, handsome gambler. Romantic leading man with a bit of an edge. Able to adapt to any situation but ready to reel off pre- prepared anecdotes regarding his view of the world. Despite his failings, Sky is immensely likeable and oozes style.

SARAH BROWN
Mid-20s-Late 30s, any ethnicity. Soprano up to high A. Prim and proper Salvation Army officer. Has a hidden wild streak waiting to come out. An idealistic but sheltered missionary. Kind-hearted but like Sky, too categorical in her view of the world. Charisma, a natural beauty and a silky jazz voice are important attributes.

NICELY-NICELY JOHNSON

BIG JULE
Early 30s-Early 50s, any ethnicity. Imposing, tough gangster from Chicago. An intimidating hustler. Temperamental. A sore loser. Although not necessarily a large man, he has undisputed stage presence. Actor may play other roles in the ENSEMBLE.

ARVIDE ABERNATHY
Late 50s-Early 70s, any ethnicity. Lyric baritone. Salvation Army man and Sarah’s paternal figure. Kind, gentle, thoughtful. A reasonable old man with a warm heart that harbors only the kindest intentions, even if he tends to be a little gullible.

GENERAL MATILDA B. CARTWRIGHT
Early 40s-Early 60s, any ethnicity. Mezzo. Business like and in-control, but ready to cut loose.

LT. BRANNIGAN
Early 30s-Early 50s, any ethnicity. Non-singing. Member of the police force trying to stop the floating crap games; tries to command respect, but the gangsters don’t really play along.

THE NEW WORLD
Book by Reginna DeCicco and L.F. Turner
Music by Gary Adler
Lyrics by Phoebe Kreutz
Directed by Stafford Arima
Choreographed by Lorin Latarro
Casting: Tara Rubin Casting, Kaitlin Shaw
1st rehearsal October 10th.1st performance November 7th
Closing November 26th, Possible Extension through December 2nd

The New World takes a hilariously skewed look at the beginning of America as we know it through the relationship between the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag tribe. This skewed approach is also represented in color-blind casting.

Seeking

SUSANNA STANDISH
Miles’ daughter. She’s doing her best to be a good Pilgrim, but she’s a hiding a non-Pilgrim habit. She’s a focused and enthusiastic young woman who has come to the New World to realize her dream of a new home. She’s absolutely sure who she wants to be…until the new world reveals all it has in store. Belt/mixer (young Sutton Foster) ROLE IS ON OFFER.

SQUANTO
Squanto is the younger of Chief W’s sons. His mother has expectations for him and he knows what they are: a good marriage to a girl from a good family. Squanto is handsome but doesn’t care about that. What he cares about in life is his man-cave and his best friend Carl, the turkey. He has a goofy kind of charm and a sarcastic edge. Leading man/crooner (John Raitt mixed with Bobby Darin) ROLE IS ON OFFER.

CHIEF WAMPANOAG
The Chief of the Wampanoag tribe. This woman is the ultimate mother. Other moms give up and let go, but those women are quitters. She attacks her role as chief with the same sense of discipline. Young Merman belter. ROLE IS ON OFFER.

MILES STANDISH
Miles is the leader of the Pilgrims and a very spiritual man. He’s charismatic, a born leader, with a ‘can do’ attitude. His charisma extends to people who do things the “right way”, which is his way, which is God’s way. The people who do things the “wrong way”, well, they can go to hell. Deep rich Baritone.

JOAN
Miles’ sister and Susanna’s Aunt. Joan calls it like she sees it. She’s a real broad. Being a Pilgrim doesn’t come naturally to Joan, but she’s trying! Rosemary Clooney belter. ROLE IS ON OFFER.

TAGO
Squanto’s loveable older brother and Chief W’s oldest son. Tago loves everything about love. He also enjoys doing crafts and pleasing his mother. (NOTE: Tago speaks with a South Boston (Southie) accent) High, comic tenor. ROLE IS ON OFFER.

CARL THE TURKEY
Squanto’s best friend. He’s a turkey. ROLE IS ON OFFER.

All roles sing. The voices are more musical theater types, and ranges can all be adjusted depending on who the actors are.
