[JOHN HANCOCK] Late 30’s – Late 40’s. Baritone; leading role, burdened, ironic, authoritative.

[ROGER SHERMAN] Late 20’s – Late 30’s. Baritone; a simple cobbler. Earthy, yet proud.

[ABIGAIL ADAMS] Early 30’s – Late 30’s. Mezzo soprano; homespun and lovely, smart, a caring and equal partner.

[ANDREW MCNAIR] Late 50’s – Early 70’s. Some singing/Baritone, working class, burdened but attentive; Congress's custodian.

[REV. JOHN WITHERSPOON] Early 40’s – Late 50’s. Lean and ascetic clergyman, singing not required.

[CAESAR RODNEY] Late 30’s – Early 50’s. Infirm but passionate; slowly weakening physically, but mentally sharp. Some singing.

[GEORGE READ] Early 30’s – Late 40’s. Baritone; small, reedy-voiced; argumentative.

[JAMES WILSON] Early 20’s – Late 30’s. Baritone; a cautious sycophant. Hesitant, always in the shadows.

You Can’t Take it With Youby George S. Kaufman & Moss Hart
Directed by Peter Amster

[PENNY SYCAMORE] Late 40’s – Late 50’s. Gentle and placid nature. Has the comfortable, homey look of a loving, jovial mother. Has a bit of a dreamlike, fanciful quality to her, but also possesses the capability for great passion.

[RHEBA] Late 20’s – Late 30’s. African-American. No-nonsense, direct. Has a sense of youth, sweetness, and happiness, but her personal qualities are somewhat masked by her professional demeanor.

Glengarry Glen Rossby David Mamet
Directed by Carl Forsman

All Equity Roles Have Been Cast


The Heidi Chroniclesby Wendy Wasserstein
Directed by Laura Kepley

[PETER] Early 30’s – Late 40’s. Overtly social and terribly clever and droll, but gives the sense that this behavior may mask an inner secret. Also has contrasting moments of being taciturn and reserved. Hiding a wellspring of sadness and bitterness. Must have the ability to believably play both below and above his actual age.

[HEIDI] Early 30’s – Late 40’s. Lovely yet not necessarily traditionally pretty. Has a somewhat lost/searching quality about her. An inner strength, poise, and calm underneath it all. Open and earnest. Must have the ability to believably play both below and above her actual age.

[SCOOP] Early 30’s – Late 40’s. Fast-talker and a bit of a slick dealer. Thinks he’s the sharpest guy in the room and flaunts it. A bit of a wheeler-dealer. Handsome and he knows it. Must have the ability to believably play both below and above his actual age.

The Equity role of Susan has been cast.


Clybourne Parkby Bruce Norris
Directed by Michael Donald Edwards

[BEV] Mid 40’s – Early 50’s. A once handsome woman who is just starting to be past her peak. Not quite matronly, but definitely comfortable with being the leader in her family. Able to hold it together when everyone around her is going to pieces. Strong, resilient. SAME ACTRESS ALSO PLAYS KATHY – many of the same qualities with an added veneer of being a professional businesswoman and skilled at resolving conflicts.

[FRANCINE] Late 20’s – Late 30’s. African-American. No-nonsense, direct. Pleasant and warm, but her personal qualities are somewhat masked by her professional demeanor. SAME ACTRESS ALSO PLAYS LENA – with the added qualities of steely determination and passionate conviction. Independent, speaks her own mind.

The Equity roles of Russ/Dan and Karl/Steve have already been cast.


The Game’s Afootby Ken Ludwig
Directed Greg Leaming

[WILLIAM GILLETTE] Late 30’s – Late 40’s. Strikingly handsome, a smart-dresser, good-humored. Full of vim and vigor. Elegant and clever. You get the sense his mind works faster than everyone else around him. Incredibly charming.

[MARTHA GILLETTE] Late 50’s – Late 60’s. Somewhat vague and prone to dithering, a bit absentminded. Very sweet and loveable, yet a bit dotty. Maternal type. Stronger than she looks.

[MADGE GEISEL] Late 30’s – Mid 40’s. Flamboyant, wryly witty. Rosalind Russell-esque. A smart-mouthed gal-about-town.

The Equity roles of Felix Geisel, Daria Chase, and Inspector Goring have been cast.


Noah Racey’s Pulse, A New Dance Musical conceived and choreographed by Noah Racey
Directed by Jeff Calhoun
