Should have the ability to sing spirituals as well as classical music in various languages – Italian, German and French (can be taught phonetically). Actor must have the range and versatility to convincingly play the ages 10-55. Roland was a deeply committed and spiritual man, not unlike a preacher. His singing voice came deep from his heart and soul. To prepare: A spiritual of the actor’s choice, and "Una furtiva lagrima" by Donizetti.

Accompanist:
Caucasian man, late 20s - early 50s. Performer must be an excellent pianist, as he accompanies the entire play. Must also be a strong actor, with some singing ability. Actor should have good comedic timing, and as he plays various characters, he must have the ability to morph into each one convincingly.
