BREAKDOWN

Seeking the following principal roles:
OTIS WILLIAMS 30s-40s – Founder and last surviving original member of The Temptations. Never the flashiest performer, but always the rock of the group. A stand-up guy, tough, with a big heart and deep conscience. BARITONE; Strong mover; PRINCIPAL; This character is African-American.
DAVID RUFFIN 20s-30s – Lead singer of The Temptations after Al, helped take the group to the top of the charts. As electric on stage as “lightning in a bottle.” Maybe the most charismatic front man in pop music history. Also plays GUARD. LEAD TENOR & strong dancer; PRINCIPAL; This character is African American.
MELVIN FRANKLIN 20s-30s – Loved his Mama. The bass of the group and one of the first members Otis recruited. Nicknamed “Blue” because of his fondness for the color, Melvin was incredibly loyal to the group and, particularly, Otis. BASS & strong dancer; PRINCIPAL – this character is African American.
EDDIE KENDRICKS 20s-30s – Friends with Paul since elementary school, Eddie created most of the group’s vocal arrangements and served as wardrobe manager. Outspoken. Loved cornbread so much, they nicknamed him “Corn.” STRONG FALSETTO & Strong Dancer; This character is African American. PRINCIPAL.
PAUL WILLIAMS 20s-30s – No relation to Otis, Paul was one of the founding members of the Temptations and the group’s resident choreographer. Well-liked and kind, but unable to cope with his own demons. STRONG DANCER; This character is African American. PRINCIPAL.
