SOMEWHERE IN BETWEEN
Book, Music & Lyrics by Alan Becker
Directed by Roy Alan /

1st Rehs. August 7, 2018 /
Runs August 24-27, 2017

*Seeking strong musical theatre performers who sing and act extremely well.

BENJAMIN
(about 27, Bari-tenor C3 to A4, good falsetto needed on softer songs) is an attractive, enthusiastic free spirit, torn between dreams of travel and a wish to someday marry his high-school sweetheart and re- create the happy home he remembers from boyhood before his mom died. His emerging deep yearning to chart his own course, clashing with the demands of friends and family, drives him to a cyclothymic episode (like a mild bipolar breakdown).

KATE
(about 27, Alto belt A3 to D5, head voice to F5) Ben’s fiancée, is great-looking, sensible and smart. She says what she thinks and does what she wants. She feels she steadies Ben’s mood swings. She helps Aunt Alice run a café, but her ambitions to expand it and start a family with Ben get shaken up when Travis flirts his way into the picture.

TRAVIS
(30’s, Bari-tenor C3 to G4) is an appealing, quirky artist who shows up in town for mysterious reasons. Thoughtful, poetic, but down to earth and with a droll sense of humor, he makes everyone think twice about their lives. Like an older brother to Ben.

ROGER
(50 to 60, Bari-bass G2 to Eb4) is Ben’s dad, a realtor and town councilman who covets a chance at state office. The pompous, blustery bearing he cultivated in the military and politics rarely softens, and he doesn’t get jokes, so he has trouble communicating that he does love and care for Ben. Not quite a Trump, but close.

ALICE
(40’s to 60’s, Mezzo G3 to F5, needs to handle her break well) is Kate’s aunt, a warm, caring woman who runs the café. All seek her advice because she’s smart, with strong principles, though she frequently claims to be bewildered. Needs a sharp comic sense.
