ALLIANCE STAGE – LORT B THEATRE

BULL DURHAM
Book by Ron Shelton and Lyrics by Susan Werner
Directed by Kip Fagan
1ST Reh: 7/29/14. Closes: 10/5/14

ANNIE SAVOY:
(38 – 42) The sexy, curvy, warm and fiery High Priestess of the Durham Bulls. Annie is beautiful without being a beauty queen, smart without being overbearing, gloriously eccentric and more than a little cautious about embarking upon relationships that could last more than a season. She must have a great, southern fried rock voice, in the world Bonnie Raitt or Reba McIntyre.

CRASH DAVIS:
(mid 30’s – early 40’s) A Baseball veteran who must decide whether to continue playing the sport he loves or hang up his mitt for love. Crash once hit it big in the major league but has found himself back at square one, with the minors. Ruggedly handsome, charismatic with a dry wit and tons of charm. Great pop/rock baritenor.

JOE ‘SKIP’ RIGGINS
(40's - 50's) the Manager of the Durham Bulls. Pragmatic, practical, wry, tough and frustrated by the field of ineptitude. He may once have been in shape but isn’t necessarily now. Loves the games, loves the plays but is a realist. Strong singer with an excellent sense of harmony.

LARRY HOCKETT
(Late 30s – 40s) Crash Davis’ contemporary but Larry’s moved off the field. A pitching coach who rarely cracks a book. Larry has a limited but defective view of life and baseball. Strong singer with an excellent falsetto and a strong sense of pitch and rhythm. A bear of a man.

JIMMY:
(20s) Caucasian. Devout Baptist and Baseball Player. As devoted to one as to the other. Completely heterosexual, completely chaste and completely inexperienced. A pitcher, searching for meaning in the Minor Leagues. Strong pop/rock voice.

HACK ARNOLD
(20s)
A catcher. Cocky but sweet. Never takes no for an answer, especially when it comes to the ladies. Surrounded by handlers and promoters. The next big thing. Must be a brilliant comedian, over 5'10", extremely fit and have a great sense of rhythm.

MALE ENSEMBLE:
(20s- late 50s) Various ages and ethnicities Male singers who move well, who are athletic and know their way around a baseball field. Must be funny, must know baseball, must be physically agile, fit and over 5'10". Great pop/rock voices.

FEMALE ENSEMBLE:
(20s - late 50s) various ages and ethnicities. Great singers to play girlfriends, wives, reporters and fans. Must have terrific pop / folk / rock voices with ranges. Must have humor and move extremely well
