BREAKDOWN

Seeking male identifying and female identifying singers/dancers for the upcoming production of CHICAGO at Drury Lane Theatre. Performers of all ethnic and racial backgrounds are encouraged to audition. All ensemble roles available.

Female/Male Chorus: Ages 18+. Strong dancers, contortionists, and singers. Several featured acting roles including:

Hunyak: Accused of chopping off her husband’s head. She is actually innocent, but because she only speaks Hungarian and refuses to plead guilty, she is found guilty and hanged. Must be a strong singer and dancer.

Liz: Killed her husband with a shotgun because he “popped” his gum.

Annie: Found out her husband had several wives and killed him with Arsenic.

June: Killed her husband with a carving knife after he found out she cheated on him.

Mona: Killed her boyfriend after she found out he was sleeping around.

Go-to-Hell Kitty: Kills her boyfriend in her apartment after coming home and finding him with two girls. She is wealthy and goes crazy telling everyone to “go-to-Hell.”

Fred Casley: Sleeping with Roxie Hart and is shot and killed. Must play a “regular guy” in the first scene but play an overly dramatic version of himself in the courtroom scene.

Sergeant Fogarty: Police detective who interviews Amos after Roxie kills Fred. Typical “Chicago” cop who has been through this kind of thing many times.

Aaron: Court appointed lawyer who tries to defend the Hunyak. He gets extremely frustrated because he can’t understand her language and she refuses to plead guilty.

Foreman: This person only has one line—however, he/she will play the part of all or half the jurors in the jurors’ box by switching chairs and swapping out hats and various disguises. Must have good comedic timing.

Harrison: District Attorney who is prosecuting Roxie.

Judge: Plays the judge in the courtroom scene.

Tailor/Bailiff/Court Clerk/Doctor/Reporters, etc: These are small roles that will be played by members of the chorus.
