Breakdown

HANK WILLIAMS: LOST HIGHWAY

Authors: Randal Myler & Mark Harelik
Director: Randal Myler
Co-Producing Artistic Directors: Alan Ostroff and Anna Roberts Ostroff
Casting Director: Michael Cassara, CSA

First rehearsal: on/about 5/19 (some rehearsals will be held in NYC before moving down to Annapolis, MD)

Runs: 6/7 - 6/29 in Annapolis, MD

NOTE: The play takes place in rural Alabama and on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry, in the 1940s and early 1950s.

SEEKING:

HANK WILLIAMS
male, Caucasian, 20s to 30s. A south Alabama hillbilly singer, thin and black-eyed with great sex appeal and charisma. The role requires a strong bari-tenor A3 to A5 (yodel flip, falsetto) who can embody that signature “Hank” sound. He must be an exceptional guitar player.

TEE-TOT
male, African-American, 45-60. A black south Alabama street singer with a soaring blues/gospel voice. Hank's mentor. Guitar skills are a major plus, but not necessarily a dealbreaker.

THE WAITRESS
female, 20s-30s. The keeper of an all-night diner somewhere in the south. Lonely but cheerful and optimistic. Non-singing role.

MAMA LILLY
female, mid 40s to late 50s. Hank's mother. A "Marjorie Main" - strong and somewhat overbearing. Does not need to sing well.

HOSS
male, late 20s to late 30s. A big, boyish man who is like a brother to Hank. Plays upright ("doghouse") bass at a strong level.

JIMMY (BURRHEAD)
male, 20s to 30s. From Oklahoma, which is especially evident in his speech - envious of Hank, but hides it with his sarcasm. Plays lead electric guitar, must play at an advanced/professional level. Tenor with high G.

LEON (LOUDMOUTH)
male, 20s to 40s. Pleasant and taciturn. A member of the band and a skillful musician on many instruments, but must be a virtuosic fiddler. Additionally, mandolin skills are helpful, but not required.

FRED ROSE (PAP)
male, 40s-50s. Founder and CEO of a Nashville music publishing company. A Midwesterner from Chicago. Serves as a father figure to Hank – non-singing role.

AUDREY WILLIAMS
female, 20s to 30s, Caucasian. Hank's first wife. A blonde beauty from Alabama: sweet, exuberant and sure. Does not need to sing well.

SHAG
The pedal steel guitarist. Must play at a professional level.
