BREAKDOWN

Peggy Sawyer – 20’s A young, starry-eyed, naïve, and humble chorus girl who dreams of stardom. She is the triple threat in the show - must sing, act, and dance (tap) very well. Mezzo soprano: should belt and be able to easily transition to head voice.
Julian Marsh – late 30’s – early 50’s Famous, but notorious, Broadway director of his new show PRETTY LADY who comes off gruff as he barks his directions at actors and crew but is charismatic. Voice: Baritone : range D to high G.
Dorothy Brock – late 30’s- 40’s A slightly past-her-prime and well-known Broadway diva. She is selfish and mean to everyone at first, but comes to understand what’s really important in life. Low Alto. She must move well.
Billy Lawlor – 20’s Youthful, leading man, high tenor, attractive, very strong dancer with excellent tap.
Maggie Jones – Late 30’s – 40’s -comic character woman, writer of PRETTY LADY, warm, nice, with a biting wit, some dance required, Alto-Mezzo soprano: A below middle C to C.
Bert Barry -Late 30’s – 40’s – comic character man, writer of PRETTY LADY, funny. lovable, Baritone/Tenor: range C to high F. Some dance required.
Pat Denning – late 30’s-40’s attractive, charming, former vaudeville partner of Dorothy's and her secret romantic partner. Vocal range: D to Eb
Andy Lee – late 20’s- 30’s – dance director of PRETTY LADY, excellent dancer especially tap, no solo singing
Abner Dillon – late 30’s – 40’s – comic character man, the financial backer of the show, under Dorothy’s spell, a bit of a hick, mainly speaking role
Anytime Annie – 20’S – excellent dancer especially tap, chorus girl in PRETTY LADY, sarcastic, cynical, she’s been around the block
