SEEKING ACTORS OF ALL ETHNICITIES

DANCING DEVIL:
20s to 30s. Dancer, does a virtuosic top hat and cane number as the devil.

LORD:
Male, 30s to late 40s. The Lord and Savior. Genial yet authoritative. While a little disconnected what's happening on Earth, he is a mighty, benevolent and comforting God. Must be excellent singer and actor.

HENRY FAUST:
Male, late 20s to early 30s. Notre Dame college student, grunge rock tenor, easily influenced by power and incredibly shallow. Dumb but mercurial, a heavy-metal junkie who doesn't know he has a soul. He's a bad boy but in an unimaginative, ill mannered, uncultured way. Has never been in love except with himself. He offers no resistance to the devil. Must be excellent singer and actor.

ANGEL RICK:
Male, 20s to 40s. A British angel, he sings a heavenly-sounding ballad about the Lord's mistreatment of his country in the two world wars.

MARGARET:
Female, late 20s to early 30s. Faust's love interest, the good girl who ultimately goes mad with grief and shame and drowns her baby. The poorest, nicest and most beautiful girl in South Bend. Sweet, sympathetic and pure. Must be excellent singer and actor.

MARTHA:
Female, late 20s to early 30s. Margaret's “bad” friend, who's callous enough to frighten (and seduce) the devil. A no-nonsense sexpot. Beautiful and heartless. Must be excellent singer and actor.

ANGEL CHILD:
Male or Female, late teens to early 20s. Was shot in the head so ended up in heaven, has a decent-sized solo that he/she sings to the devil. Must be excellent singer.

SEEKING ACTOR MUSICIANS OF ALL ETHNICITIES

JIM

L.M.

EDDIE
