ROLES:

Queenie, Female, 20-30, F3-F5 Blonde and beautiful. Sexy. Looks a little older and more tired than her age would indicate. Afraid of being alone. Has become addicted to Burrs' presence and ravenous sexual appetite.

Burrs, Male, 30-40, G3-A5 Handsome. A professional clown. Dangerous and charming all at once. Sexually ravenous and drawn to Queenie like a moth to the flame. Hurts somewhere deep inside, and slowly descends into jealous insanity.

Black, Male, 25-35, F3-G5 Strong, handsome, and poised without being posed. An enigmatic loner. Protective. No-nonsense kind of guy who cannot understand Queenie's attraction to Burrs.

Kate, Female, 20-30, F3-E5 A lush. Likes to be the "life of the party." Always looking out for number one, and is jealous of Queenie. Sexy, sensual, and confident.

Madeline True, Female, 30-55 (Age Flexible), A3-E5 A tired woman and an announced lesbian. Sexually hungry. Blunt and very dry.

Delores, Female, 30-45(Age Flexible), A3-A5 A party-goer pitching ideas and hoping to score with Sam. A wild woman of the night.

Eddie, Male, 30-45, A3-A5 Mae's husband who is perhaps even more dim-witted than she is. A big oaf. Can be a lovable teddy bear but also a quick tempered brute. Adores his wife.

Mae, Female, 25-45, A3-D5 Eddie's wife. Sweet and beautiful, but not particularly bright. Adores her husband and dotes on him.

Sam, Male, 30-50, A3-A5 Busy producer and "attention whore." Trying to avoid the outrageous pitches made by Dolores, until it becomes sexual.

Oscar D’Armano, Male, 25-35, A3-B5 Phil's brother and lover who dresses as his twin. A composer and an entertainer in every sense of the word. Very flamboyant.

Phil D’Armano, Male, 25-35, A3-A5 Oscar's brother and lover who dresses as his twin. A composer and an entertainer in every sense of the word. Very flamboyant.

Nadine, Female, “A Minor” 16-18 (in appearance) A3-A5 The only minor at the party. Waifish and somewhat naïve. She is in over her head and trying to keep up.

Max, Male, 25-35, A3-B5 One of the party goers and a member of the usual "gang." He is full of life and energy.

Jackie, Male, 20-30, (Ensemble singing/Good Dancer)

Ensemble (10-12) Male and Female, various vocal ranges, Should be good dancers.

**AUDITION REQUIREMENTS**

AGE:

VOCAL REQUIREMENT: 
Minimum 16 bars, contemporary music strongly encouraged. This show requires strong voices and features many different types of music. It is best to sing a song that shows off your entire range.
 
 
**CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS**
Ages, gender, and doubling of parts are merely suggestions.
 
 
Bat Boy - A half-bat half-human creature often referred to as “Edgar”. Once brought into town, he longs to be accepted and
treated like a human and not like an animal. Male, 16-26. Range: B2-A4 (falsetto to E5) (tenor)

Dr. Parker - Often referred to as Doctor Parker. Husband to Meredith. He is the town veterinarian. He has a dark side to him that he hides very well. Suffers from demons that he tries to keep at bay. Male, 30-50. Range: Ab2 - A4 (tenor)
Shelley Parker - Daughter to Dr. Parker and Meredith. She is the typical teenager but does have a more sensitive side to her that she doesn’t let many people see. Female, 16-26. Range: Ab2 - Ab4 (+ raps) (soprano)
 
The Townsfolk/Ensemble:
Sheriff Reynolds - He is the sheriff of Hope Falls, West Virginia. He is well respected in the town but is coming up for reelection and wants to please everyone that he can. Male, 20-60. Range: C#3 - F4 (baritone)
Rick Taylor - One out of three rowdy Taylor kids who finds Bat Boy. Also Shelley’s boyfriend. Drag role. He doubles as Lorraine and Mr. Dillon. Strong acting/singing needed. Male, 16-28. Range: E3 - B4 (+ raps) (tenor)
Ron Taylor - Another rowdy Taylor kid. Drag role. Doubles as Maggie and also Clem. Male, 16-28. Range: C3 – D4 (baritone)

Bud - A rancher. Drag role. Doubles as Daisy. Male, 16-60.
Muses/Pan - The director’s vision has added additional parts to the show. The Greek Muses will tell the story of Bat Boy and will do most of the ensemble work as it is their story to tell. They will directly interact with characters onstage but are only “seen” by the audience. Pan is also included here and has a solo. The Muses require strong dancing and singing ability as their role will be very important in this production. Must be comfortable wearing a leotard and body paint. Pan range: Eb3 - A4 (tenor) or Eb3 - C4 (alto)
 
**FINAL NOTE**
 
This show is going to be a great experience with hilarious doubling, breaking the fourth wall and audience interaction. It is important that those interested in this production are willing to give it their all since it is a high energy show and will require those involved to not be afraid to challenge themselves. Please give it your all at auditions and be ready to let your creative heart and mind come to life!

What’s new with Actorsingers summer 2015 

What’s new this summer at the Actorsingers?

In addition to our summer Teen show (“Wedding Singer”), we are going to produce a summer adult show. We are stepping out of our comfort zone to try something experimental and new…. the Actorsingers Fringe Theatre Project.  This new project has the potential to not only introduce exciting, edgier entertainment to the Nashua Community but also to offer adults and college age students the opportunity to work on a theatre project (on stage or in technical areas) that will challenge them.

So, the Actorsingers Fringe Theatre Project proudly presents the Green Day rock musical “American Idiot”, the NH debut of this edgy, exciting show! It will be performed at the Janice B. Streeter Theatre in Nashua the last weekend of August 2015. Audition information will be released soon. Check the Actorsingers website, www.actorsingers.org and our Facebook page for updates.
