SYNOPSIS: In New York City during WWII, beautiful, magical Holly Golightly, a self-invented young woman, meets Fred, an idealistic, brilliant, handsome and witty writer. A passionate friendship ensues. Various colorful neighbors and friends figure in Holly and Fred’s milieu and witness Holly’s reversal of fortune.


(20s-30) An unjaded writer who is fresh to NY, he meets and falls under the spell of Holly Golightly. Fred is smart, sexy, ambitious, romantic, idealistic and naïve. While experimenting with/figuring out his sexuality, he falls in love with Holly and feels he is the only one who truly knows her. Fred’s experiences with, and reminiscences of, Holly go back and forth in time.

(50 – 60s) A working-class man who owns the bar downstairs from where Holly and Fred live. Gruff and no nonsense but big-hearted; he’s seen it all in his years at the bar. He has tremendously affectionate and protective feelings for Holly, even if he tries to conceal them. He and Joe share a warm rapport.

NOTE: All the roles below with most likely double/triple with small ensemble parts.

(60s) A long, lean country fellow from Texas. Although Fred thinks Doc is Holly’s father, he is actually her husband. Doc rescued Holly and her brother after they fled mean foster parents and married Holly when she was a teen. Still in love, he has sought her out in NYC to take her back home with him. He is kind, sweet, and “real.”

(20s – early 30s) Quite tall and vivacious; a striking model from Arkansas with a pronounced stutter. Charming and a man-magnet, she is Holly’s roommate, and not quite the devoted friend she pretends to be. Once Holly is in trouble, she denounces her and proves disloyal.

(50s-60s) A short, witty, fast-talking, extremely well-connected Hollywood agent. Has a sincere affection for Holly and at one time tried to make her a movie star. Slick and a non-stop talker, he has a paternalistic interest in Holly.

(30s) Brazilian. Must be able to do an excellent Brazilian accent. An incredibly handsome and charming Brazilian man who wants to be President of Brazil one day. Very earnest and upstanding. He and Holly are engaged to be married but he leaves her at the first whiff of scandal so as not to disgrace his family and ruin his chances. Will double with:JOSE’S COUSIN:After Jose leaves Holly, Jose’s cousin arrives to gather Jose’s things and leave Holly a note with the news of Jose’s departure.

(30s - 40s) Asian. A Japanese-American man from California, he is a successful photographer; sleek and well-dressed. He is Holly’s neighbor, and is always keen to get her to pose for him. He is troubled by his own success, as so many of his countrymen in the U.S. are in WWII internment camps.

(40s) One of Holly’s paramours. An extremely spoiled, rich Nazi-sympathizer who has already been divorced four times. He looks and acts like a pickled infant. Rusty enjoys being bossed around and eventually leaves Holly for her friend Mag.

(40s-60) A flattish coloratura soprano who brags about her (nonexistent) days at the Metropolitan Opera. She likes to roller skate in central park (note: actress who plays this part must feel comfortable on skates). A fraud, a prig, and a nuisance with a larger than life personality. She hates Holly and takes every opportunity to try and turn people against her.

(mid-40s – 60) Married with three daughters, he makes it clear to Fred that he will help his career in return for sexual favors. However, he is unwilling to help once Fred’s career is tainted by scandal.

The following role has been CAST.

HOLLY:CAST (note, those wanting to audition for the HOLLY Understudy, should check back with Casting Call periodically for the additional EPA for understudies, to be scheduled on an upcoming date TBD)
