Must Play Age 21. Male Identified. Good-looking US Marine about to ship off to Vietnam in 1963. From Rochester, NY. Careless. Tough on the outside, but lonely and lost, somewhere between boy and man. He is well respected and a natural leader amongst his comrades. Initially a hothead; a cocky smooth talker. He eventually sheds his brash exterior when he falls for Rose. Contemporary tenor voice, chest voice to at least an A. Also must be comfortable in mix. Lead.
Must play Age 19. Female Identified. Plain, awkward exterior. Inside, bursting with life, ideas and passion—scared to show it. A dreamer. Works as a waitress in her mother’s diner; has never left home. Becomes smitten with Birdlace and discovers a lot about her self-respect and confidence along the way. Strong mix, but comfortable belting as well. Needs to be very comfortable in folk and pop styles. Guitar skills a plus but not required. Lead.
Must Play Age 20. Male Identified. Jewish US Marine leaving for Vietnam. From Cleveland, OH. Inexperienced when it comes to sex and life. Quirky, energetic, genuine. Solid contemporary baritenor, comfortable to F or G. A character voice would work in this role.
Must Play Age 20-24. Male Identified. US Marine leaving for Vietnam. Southern. Handsome charmer/cad...crude behavior and language...he's a jerk. Doesn’t worry too much about telling the truth, just getting by. Overconfident and insensitive, but always in the name of having fun. High, clear tenor.
Must Play Age 20-35. Female Identified. Brash, crass, trashy, no mind-to-mouth filter. Role requires a great sense of over-the-top comic timing. Marcy is not pretty (nearly toothless!), but knows how to do herself up when necessary, and probably makes a decent living as a prostitute. Strong, high belt required. Marcy’s voice is as strong as her personality.
Must Play Age 40-60. Female Identified. The owner of the local diner; unamused by the Marines' antics and protective of her daughter, Rose.
Fector / Hippie:
Must Play Age 20-25. Male Identified. Two-character track for one performer. Fector: US Marine leaving for Vietnam. Not too bright. One of the guys. Actor also plays a Hippie. High tenor with a Bb. Comfortable singing in tight harmony.
Stevens / Others:
Must Play Age 20-25. Male Identified. Multi-character track for one performer. Stevens: US Marine leaving for Vietnam. Judge of the dogfight. Cocky. Actor also plays a snooty Waiter and a Hippie. Contemporary tenor voice, though could be baritone. Comfortable singing in tight harmony.
Lounge Singer / Others:
Must Play Age 25-50. Male Identified. Multi-character track for one performer. Lounge Singer: Smooth crooner at the low-rent Nite Lite. Actor in this track is a utility player who also plays Pete (a former Army man), Sergeant, Big Tony (a tattoo artist) and Phil (proprietor of a small folk-music club). Contemporary tenor voice, but must be comfortable in more pastiche styles as well (early ‘60s music ranging from Engelbert Humperdinck to The Beatles).
Chippy / Others:
Must Play Age 18-25. Female Identified. Multi-character track for one performer. Chippy: Feisty young prostitute. Actress also plays Fector’s Party Date and a Hippie. Strong singer.
