Zach: Male. The director and choreographer of the show for which the dancers are auditioning. He is a stage veteran and thus can be curt and harsh, but he is revealed to be a caring and empathetic man who truly grows to care about these dancers. Non-singing, but should have movement ability, as he demonstrates a few dance moves. 40+.

Larry: Male. Tenor. Zach’s assistant who teaches and demonstrates the audition dances. Needs to be an incredible dancer, as he is the standard to which all of the auditioning dancers are held. 25+.

Al Deluca: Male. Baritone. From the Bronx. Street tough, macho, and newly married to Kristine; very protective. Seeking a strong singer, as he is the contrast to the non-singing Kristine in “Sing.” 25+.

Bebe Benzenheimer: Female. Mezzo. Very insecure about her looks and tries to be funny to cover her insecurities. Feels a little excluded but just wants to be liked. She is quiet, vulnerable and kind. Sings the middle harmony in “At the Ballet.” 18-25.

Bobby Mills: Male. Baritone. Flamboyant, funny, bitchy, and witty. Very sharp tongued. Covers everything over with a joke; had a very hard childhood. From upstate New York. 25+.

Cassie Ferguson: Female. Mezzo belt. Returning to the chorus after years of being a featured performer. She is having to humble herself to audition for the chorus again with younger and less experienced dancers. Previously had a relationship with Zach and it did not end well. Seeking a true triple threat performer, as she sings the iconic “The Music and the Mirror.” 30-35.

Connie Wong: Female. Alto. Experienced dancer. Married. Petite. A bit of a mother hen with a great sense of humor. Born in Chinatown, New York. Should believably play 4’10’’.

Diana Morales: Female. Mezzo belt. A streetwise Latina who is a little bit tough, and eternal optimist. A determined and athletic dancer from the Bronx. Sings “Nothing,” in which she reveals herself to be funny, charming, and vulnerable. 22-30.

Don Kerr: Male. Baritone. Ladies’ man, married, and into cars, money, and women. Very sure of himself. All American guy. Cocky because he has worked with Zach before. From Kansas City.

Zach before. Very East Side New York. 25+.

Judy Turner: Female. Mezzo. Funny, gawky, nervous. Warm and hopeful. Very awkward except when dancing. Ideally seeking a taller dancer.

Kristine Urich: Female. Al’s scatter-brained wife who can’t sing. She is awkward, anxious and hilarious. She “speaks” the song “Sing,” but does sing in the ensemble numbers of the show. 18-25.

Maggie Winslow: Female. Mezzo. A sweetheart, little sister type. Dreamer. Fairly experienced dancer from California. Seeking an incredibly warm singer with a mix belt up to E natural for the soaring climax of “At the Ballet.”

Mike Costa: Male. Tenor. Quite aggressive, determined, cocky, sure of himself, but likeable. Tap dancer who worked with Zach before. Experienced; flirtatious. From New Jersey. Must be able to tap. 20-25.

Paul San Marco: Male. Baritone. Introverted and slightly insecure but loves performing; only now starting to feel comfortable about being gay and accepted by his parents. From Spanish Harlem, New York. Friends with Diana. Delivers a beautiful, raw and vulnerable monologue about coming out to his parents.

Richie Walters: Male. Tenor. From Missouri. African-American; strong dancer, enthusiastic, cool and very funny. Likeable and laid back.

Sheila Bryant: Female. Alto. Oldest dancer on the line. Confident, brassy, sexy, bitchy, and sophisticated. One of the more popular dancers; humorous. Sings the low harmony in “At the Ballet.” 30.
