Seeking:Jesus: Male, 20-39, rock tenor; chest voice B2-Ab4, powerful falsetto/scream up to G5. This role demands a well-rounded baritone voice that also has a super extended upper register- virtuosity coupled with sensitive musicianship a must. Think James Taylor meets Steve Tyler. A true “rock star”, comfortable addressing a group of 12 or an arena of 12,000. This role does not dance, but must be comfortable moving. Note if actor can play acoustic guitar as it is preferred for the role. Judas: Male, 18-39, rock/soul tenor; E3-D4 (+). This role requires an agile and sensitive voice with access to extremely high registers across a full dynamic range. Stylistically drawing a great deal from soul music, useful reference points would be Stevie Wonder/Murray Head. He is the antagonist of the show, concerned that fame is getting in the way of the message of social justice. Someone who can tell a story through a melody, with exquisite diction and intonation. This role does not dance but must be comfortable moving. Mary: Female, 18-39, belt mezzo; G#3-C5; former prostitute, now follower of Jesus, grappling with her feelings and her faith. Seeking singers who can communicate her solo as more than just a simple love song. This role does not dance but must be comfortable moving. Drawing its influence from early 70s pop, this role requires musical simplicity & excellent phrasing. Think Joni Mitchell/Carol King. (No riffing required). Pilate: 30-49, baritone or baritenor; A2-Bb4; a strong baritone with extended high register. Think Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Robert Plant. A diverse musical journey through both acts requires a singer of great stillness, yet with the ability to tear the roof off in the final bars. Guitar skills preferred. Annas: Male, 30-49, funky high rock/soul tenor, with a great flair for swing & groove. Shrill, tightly wound, sadistic high priest; strong mover; E3-D5. Caiaphas: Male, 30-49, a strong bass with a baritone range. Must have great feel for groove & an astonishing musical presence. Should look and act very cool; strong mover; low bass, C#2-F4.

Region: Eastern

Seeking:Henry Higgins: Male, 30-59a middle-aged confirmed bachelor, a professor of phonetics and an expert elocutionist. He is an unconventional man who goes in the opposite , direction from the rest of society in most matters. He is impatient with high society, forgetful in his public graces, and inconsiderate of normal social niceties. He has no desire to have romance of any kind in his life. PRINCIPAL. Eliza Doolittle: Female, 20-39, a poor girl who dreams of working in a flower shop while she sells flowers in England's Covent Garden. She employs Henry Higgins to help her with her speech and begins to transform herself into a regal figure fit to consort with nobility. In the end, she not only passes for a duchess, but becomes an independent woman. PRINCIPAL. Colonal Pickering: Male, 40-69, a kindly, middle-aged man who shares Higgins' passion for phonetics. Pickering is always considerate and a genuine gentleman who helps in the Eliza experiment by making a wager of it, saying he will cover the costs if Higgins does indeed make a convincing duchess of Eliza. It is Pickering's thoughtful treatment towards Eliza that teaches her to respect herself. PRINCIPAL. Alfred Doolittle: Male, 50-69, Eliza's father, a dustman, or trash collector, who has a very unique 'morality', in that he is very happy to be a freeloader. When he learns that his daughter has entered the home of Henry Higgins, he quickly follows to see if he can get some money out of the circumstance. His unique brand of rhetoric, unembarrassed, non-hypocritical advocacy of drink and pleasure (at other people's expense), is amusing to Higgins. PRINCIPAL. Freddy Eynsford-Hill: Male, 20-39, an aristocrat, although he has no income of his own. He becomes lovesick for Eliza, and courts her with letters. A romantic. PRINCIPAL, Mrs. Higgins: Female, 60-89, Professor Higgins' mother; a very refined lady of the upper-middle class. She sees the Eliza Doolittle experiment as idiocy and is the first and only character to have any qualms about the whole affair. When her worries prove true, it is to her that all the characters turn. Because no woman can match up to his mother, Higgins claims, he has no interest in dallying with them. PRINCIPAL. Mrs. Pearce: Female, 50-59, Higgins' housekeeper who helps to care for the well being of Eliza Doolittle. She is an observer of the experiment and watches to make sure that Eliza is kept safe. PRINCIPAL Professor Zoltan Karpathy: Male, 30-49, a Hungarian and a former student of Higgins. He is also a rival phonetics expert, in his own mind if not in Higgins', and quite proud of his linguistic accomplishments. He hires out his services to the queen of Transylvania. PRINCIPAL.

Nora Helmer (Female, late 20’s; Part 1) – Attractive, ebullient, resourceful and extremely charming.  Nora begins the play living the dream, a mother of 3, in a successful marriage, with her husband on the verge of securing a promotion that will transform their financial and social future.  But as the risks she took to save her husband’s life in the early years of their marriage leak to the surface, the price she and her family might pay become increasingly frightening.  Facing the realization that she never actually knew her husband (or herself), she finds hidden resources of strength and takes bold action. Emmy (Female, 20’s; Part 2) – Nora and Torvald's grown daughter who is now engaged to a banker much like her father. She is fierce and intelligent- wise beyond her years. She faces meeting her mother, which for her is almost like meting her for the first time, with grace and poise and proves to rival the cunning nature that Nora, both young and old, proves to contain. She does not want to be independent, she wants to have someone who cares about her and that she can care for, a companion, unlike she watched her father live without her whole life. She sees marriage as an adventure to face as a team and that couples should have to face challenges together rather than having the ability to escape anytime someone is uncomfortable. Torvald Helmer (Male, late 30’s early 40’s; Part 1) – Charming, strong-minded, a good provider and fairly domineering.  After years toiling away in his private law practice in their small Norwegian town, Torvald stands on the brink of taking on a new role as head of the local bank; a job that will transform his economic future and his family’s social status.  He adores his beautiful wife, and loves being in control of their life together.  But following the rules, the law, is non-negotiable to him – and when he learns that his wife may have broken the law (even if it was with the intention of saving his life), a darker, more judgmental part of his personality rises to the surface. Kristine Linde (Female, 30’s; Part 1) – Practical, calm, weary and a bit jaded.  A close friend of Nora’s from their days in school, Kristine has faced a daunting set of setbacks since they last saw each other.  In an effort to provide for her ailing mother and brothers, she married a man she didn’t love.  When her husband died, she worked as a bookkeeper to support the family as best she can.  But now that her mother is gone and her children grown, she finds herself both without a means of survival and a reason to survive.  Reconnecting with Nora, she tries both to launch her future, and to assist Nora in navigating the treacherous emotional waters she finds herself in. Nora Helmer (Female, 30’s to 40’s; Part 2) – Now present is the version of Nora which flashed before our eyes at the end of part one. She had gotten the opportunity to live like she had always wanted, being independent and the controller of her destiny. This is until she finds like she still is tied in marriage to Torvald. Now finding herself once again at the mercy of Torvald she faces what each possible solution might cause for her down the road and whose reputation would be the most greatly affected. Nils Krogstad (Male, late 30’s early 40’s; Part 1) – Manipulative, conniving, quiet, brooding.  Krogstad was a classmate of Torvald’s in school.   He hit on hard times, and with a large family to feed, turned to illegal money lending at very high interest rates.   In the past months, he has tried to turn over a new leaf and start repairing his reputation.  As Torvald rises at the bank, Krogstad sees both a threat (to his current position); and an opportunity.  Given his leverage over Nora, he views her as the clearest route to getting what he wants, and is willing to blackmail her to get it Dr. Rank (Male, late 50’s or early 60’s; Part 1) – Affable, easy, a good listener, loyal.  A dear friend of Torvald and Nora’s, Dr. Rank spends most of his spare time with the younger couple.  He and Torvald enjoy shooting the breeze about business, and his infatuation with Nora, makes gives his time with the couple an added zest.   Torvald Helmer (Male, 40’s to 50’s; Part 2) – After having never wanting the separation with Nora, it is discovered that after 15 years he has still failed to file a divorce between them. He has had years to think about how their final moments might have been different and how he could have been the one who left her. Already having been torn down years earlier with Nora leaving, he is fine with her doing it again, but this time not in a way that just seems like she is running away from her problems rather than facing them. Anne-Marie (Female, 50+; Part 1 & 2) – The family nurse who also cared for Nora when she was a child. Having been closest person to a motherly figure that Nora has had in her life, Nora hopes that she can assist in the quest that brought her back to town. Anne-Marie wants the best for everyone but the ideals that she stands by differ from that of Nora's on the terms of societal norms for marriage. She is torn as she is an ally with both parties who have given her work all these years. Helene (Female, Any Age; Part 1) – Maid to the Helmer’s The Messenger/Page (Male, Any Age; Part 1) – Delivers Nora’s Christmas tree   GOODNIGHT MOON Playwright: Chad Henry Based on the book by Margaret Wise Brown and Clement Hurd  Director: Allison Watrous- DCPA Executive Director of Education AEA TYA Agreement The Randy Weeks Conservatory Theatre   REH: 9/10/2019 1ST PREVIEW:  10/4/2019 OPEN:  10/9/2019 CLOSE:  2/16/2019 The production will include extended moments of physicality, engagement within an immersive environment, and needs for multiple characters and committed ensemble skills.

He is willing to risk to be caught by the law to follow and support Sebastian to all ends but in the end loses his freedom and his love. Maria (Female) – Olivia's gentlewoman who is part of the rag tag group of partiers led by Sir Toby. She is cunning and trustworthy to all of those who befriends her, but push her buttons like Malvolio continues to do and the feisty and trickster side of her emerges.

Sir Andrew Aguecheek (Male) – Sir Toby's companion who has been continually convinced that he will be able to woo Lady Olivia.  A buffoon who is kept around because of his money. The naïve party boy who is easily egged on by Sir Toby. Malvolio (Male) – Olivia's doting steward. Conceited and driven to be the best employee to Olivia in the hopes of winning he love. The ridiculous ways in which he presents himself only set himself up to be more easliy fooled by Maria, Sir Toby, and the rest of their gang after he continues to mistreat them. Fabian/Captain (Male) – A member of Olivia's household and friends to Sir Toby and Sir Andrew who helps with their various pranks.

First Officer/Servant (Male) – In service to the Duke / Olivia's servant Second Officer/Priest (Male) – In service to the Duke / Priest   TWENTY50 World Premiere Playwright: Tony Meneses Director:  Henry Godinez LORT D Contract The Space Theater   REH: 12/30/2019 1ST PREVIEW:  1/31/2020 OPEN:  2/7/2020 CLOSE:  3/1/2020 Seeking: Andres (Male, 40’s, Latino) – A guy who wants to do the right thing, while also trying to win an election! Stuck in his own identity politic of who and what he’s supposed to be. A leader in the making one way or another; charismatic, resolved, trustworthy. A guy you can honestly see being president one day. Irene (Female, 60’s, Latina) – The matriarch in her own right. Strong but also unconditionally supportive. Has firm opinions about her identity and culture, and the importance of preserving that. Dignified, graceful, and tough when she needs to be. Should be able to do an accent as well. Jenny (Female, 18, Latina) – Headstrong and independent. She’s the new generation, so she should of course be a classic teenager in some regard. But she’s also smart and incisive and calls out bs when she sees it. Sebastian (Male, 30’s to 40’s, Latino) – Kind of a loudmouth; over-opinionated and even sassy. Big personality but not obnoxiously so. He should be charming and funny. Monty (Male, 30’s to 40’s, African American) – Polite and honest and likable but also smart and incisive (kind of like Jenny), he’s not able to call out bs as easily as she does, but sees it just the same. Lydia (Female, 30’s to 40’s, Latina) – The sheriff so tough in her own way, but also mild-mannered and even-keeled. She’s a calming presence, so perhaps therein lies the perhaps attraction for Andres. Oscar (Male, 20’s, Latino) – Fluent in Spanish. Should have a mysterious presence, where we can’t figure out if we like him or if he’s actually dangerous. There is something candid and earnest about him, even if we do start to doubt that it’s put upon.   YOU LOST ME World Premiere Playwright: Bonnie Metzger Director:  Margot Bordelon LORT D Contract The Ricketson Theater   REH: 12/17/2019 1ST PREVIEW:  1/17/2020 OPEN:  1/24/2020 CLOSE:  2/23/2020 Seeking: Ann Harvey (Female, 40’s to 50’s) – She runs the Inn which has been in the family for generations.  Great-great-granddaughter of Shipwreck Ann, the original Ann Harvey.  She stayed in the remote island town where she was born to keep the family traditions alive and is raising her teenage nephew who is just like her condescending rebel sister who she has never forgiven for leaving. Hardened by long years of work and the crushing loneliness of small-town living. Trying to breathe new life into the Inn now that her nephew Joe-L is here – will he be the next in line to keep the house in the family?  She pours this fledgling hope into the Inn’s new blog.  It doesn’t come naturally at first, but she starts to get the hang of it, despite Joe-L’s caustic critiques.  She does not believe in God or in fairytale love or any of that.   White Rock Ann (Female, 40’s to 50’s) – Ghost from 280 years ago, Ann Harvey's relative and Shipwreck Ann late in life, 1860 Joe-L (Male, Teens) – Ann Harvey’s present-day nephew.  A dark poet with a Tumblr blog, a renegade, forever on the brink of graduating high school but won’t do the last thing he needs to finish. He is obsessed with indie punk-noise bands and getting to NYC.  He’s an addict who is stuck in an island town and all he wants is to get out.  He believes in poetry and the cleansing power of a live band and the perfect high. A party boy fuck-up whose anger about his mother’s suicide comes in waves that he drowns out with booze. He is toying with going to an AA meeting to make Edna happy but thinks it’s bs.  He helps his aunt around the Inn sporadically.  He’d do it more but she doesn’t pay him what he’s worth and doesn’t listen to his ideas about attracting more American tourists. Not a survivor. Edna (Female, Teens) – Joe-L’s teenage girlfriend.  She is very excited about her AA recovery and trying to convert Joe-L. Determined to keep her goth edge but also do the right next thing if she can figure out what it is.  She secretly digs the slogans more than the lyrics of the punk bands they obsessively follow on Tumblr and Rilke. And she super loves sex, way more than Joe-L, which can be frustrating.  Learning how to survive addiction, sudden loss, and a strange home life and seeks comfort from AA, Ann, Joe-L and the Shipwreck Inn.  Not sure if she believes in ghosts. Shipwreck Ann (Female, 20’s) – 17-yr old Ann Harvey saved 161 Irish survivors from the wreck of the Despatch in 1828 off the coast of Newfoundland.  Determined, strong and practical.  She has an edge and carries her power in her body and in her voice.  Doesn’t suffer fools. Hardened by life along the coast which is ruled by nature, as is she. Throws off the Christian beliefs and gender roles as defined by the Irish visitors – her experience tells her that every person lives and dies by how strong they are and what work they do for themselves and for their families to survive.  But something she doesn’t understand cracks her open as she nurses Mary back to health. She has never had a friend or an anything.  She wants to be near her. Sid the American (Female, 20’s to 30’s) – Funny, gregarious, loud-and-proud queer cis woman from NYC.  Lots of cultural blind spots.  Very sure of her beliefs and her place in the world.  Lover of American pop culture, but ready to leave it behind to live in Canada since her progressive values are more reflected here.  Although she’s never been here before.  Been dreaming of getting married and flipping the bird to the dominant culture by...replicating the norms of the dominant culture.  Well-meaning and kind, but a hot mess.  Terrible at listening, taking the temperature of the room or reading between the lines. Alexander McCauley (Male, 30’s to 40’s, Irish) – Irish Husband of Mary McCauley. His religious beliefs has made him hard – everything is black and white.  He is ruled by the literal tenets of the bible and is dedicated to doing all he can to make God’s will material in every room he enters.  Pastor Paul (Male, 40’s to 50’s) – An American tourist whose privilege has granted him an unbounded belief in the good of humankind.  Looks for God in weird places and finds him.  Words spill out of him in his desire to connect with others, especially women, especially Ann Harvey.  An avid debater, curious listener, and lover of new things.  A dopey, charming somewhat culturally blind (think American suburban middle school soccer coach) who tries to embrace the complexities of modern life and merge it with his Christian beliefs. Man from Lloyd’s (Male, Any Age) – A company man who wants to follow protocol to retrieve any property of his employer.  He likes the comforts of London and did not volunteer for this assignment that required travelling in a ship across the ocean to investigate whether there is any small additional gains to be had from several shipwrecks along one of the nastiest coastlines. It is his first trip to the New World. Mary McCauley (Female, 30’s to 40’s, Irish) – An Irish survivor of the Despatch who Shipwreck Ann nurses back to health in her home.  MARY has just lost her baby, who was ripped from her arms by the sea, and is hollow from the mourning, and the injury, and her husband’s blame.  A haunting beauty, being near her feels like standing on the edge of a cliff.  She is a believer of Celtic pagan rituals and superstitions.  She sees and hears magic and dark power everywhere.  She loves Ireland, and slowly comes back to life as she finds it here in Newfoundland.  She can be quiet as a whisper and shriek like a banshee.  She will do anything to survive. Reika the American (Female, 20’s to 30’s) – Curious. Driven. Probably the smartest person in the room but lost in reflection and dreaming. Everyone projects onto her their weird sense of her mystery and she uses that when it works to her advantage. She is super-judgy of others and is bored easily. Reika hides herself from being smothered by Sid but also can’t quite end it. She doesn’t think the relationship can survive. Reika being mixed race shows through her body the history of colonization by the British Empire and in particular, by the British East Indian company which was formed to claim the British stake of the spice trade. Mary identifies as “Irish” and her servitude to her husband comes from her gender. Reika identifies as a woman of color and understands race as a cultural construct – she is interested in her Irish roots which may hold a white oppressive colonizing male who had sex with a servant while in India.  Or it might not.  What she cares about is getting as close to the place of the shipwreck, and to Mary, as possible.   CHOIR BOY Playwright: Tarell Alvin McCraney Director: Timothy Douglas LORT D Contract  The Space Theater   REH: 3/10/2020 1ST PREVIEW:  4/10/2020 OPEN:  4/17/2020 CLOSE:  5/10/2020 Seeking: Headmaster Marrow (Male, late 30’s to early 40’s, man of color) – The youngest and latest Headmaster for the Charles R Drew Prep School for Boys.
