Seeking the following role only:

EDWARD:
(Male – 40s-50s) Charismatic Southern storyteller. Leaves his small town in search of adventure. He joins a travelling circus and meets the love of his life, Sandra, but even after beginning their family and having their son, Will, Edward’s heart is still on the road where he works as a travelling salesman. He maintains that his tall tales are true, which, in a way, they are, as a reflection of the way he sees the world and wants his son to live. Comedy and charisma are essential. Also plays himself as a teenager and early 60s. Performer must be an excellent singer, comfortable with contemporary rhythms and styles.
