Nya: Black woman, mid-late 30s.

Omari: Black man, late teens.
Nya’s son. Smart and astute. Rage without release. Tender and honest at his core. Something profoundly sensitive amidst the anger. Wrestling with his identity between private school education and being from a so-called urban community.
Jasmine: Black or Latina woman, late teens.
Sensitive and tough. A sharp bite, a soft smile. Profoundly aware of herself and her environment. Attends upstate private school but from a so-called urban environment. IN touch with the poetry of her own language.

Directed by: TBD
Contract Dates: October 29th – December 29th, 2019
LORT C Contract
Bob Wallace: Male, Late 20’s- Mid 30’s
A major singing star, Bob is the guiding force behind the song and dance team of Wallace and Davis. He wears his fame easily and is a born leader, but has some trouble with social and romantic interactions. Despite his occasional gruffness, he is deeply kind and principled man who is searching for his true love. A superb singer with a crooning style who moves very well. Baritone
Phil Davis: Male, Late 20’s-Early 30’s
The fun-loving, go –getting song-and-dance partner of the team if Wallace and Davis. An irrepressible clown, operator and incorrigible ladies’ man who is determined to see his friend happy, even if it requires scheming and outright deception. He has boyish charm and sex appeal. Strong jazz and tap-dancing needed. A song and dance comic performer. Bari-Tenor.
Betty Haynes: Female, Mid-Late 20’s
The sensible, responsible half of the upcoming song-and-dance team, The Haynes Sisters. Destined to be a star in her own right, she is nonetheless hesitant to take the spotlight for herself. A woman of decent, upstanding principles, she is devoted to her younger sister. Like Bob she hides her yearning for true love under the protective shell. A female singer of quiet beauty and charm with rich chest mix sound and a soprano extension. Must move well.
Judy Haynes: Female, Early 20’s
The younger, more ambitious, slightly scheming Haynes sister. While wholesome and adorable she is sexy and flirty-a winning charmer whom no man can resist. Strong jazz and tap dancing needed-a major song-and-dance performer. Chest Mix.
Martha Watson: Female, Late 40’s- Mid 60’s
Once a Broadway star, now the general’s housekeeper at the Inn, Martha has a very dry, wry, wisecracking sense of humor. Bighearted, but completely unsentimental, she runs the General’s life in spite of his protestations. She is an irrepressible meddler, but always for what she believes to be the other guys best interests. A winning, appealing character-comedienne with clarion belt voice.
General Henry Waverly: Male, 50-65
A retired U.S. Army General, adjusting to returning to civilian life in post World War II America. Once a powerful leader now struggles to run an inn in Vermont. He remains a man of great principal and dignity. Beneath his hard, curmudgeon, military exterior, lays a warm compassionate man in need of family and love. Still a handsome, vital man; non-singing role. Any ethnicity

Ezekiel Foster/Mr. Snoring Man: Male, 40-55
Heavy-set comic, character man. Excellent legit baritone. Ezekiel is a Vermont local with dry delivery who is a stagehand for the show and comes to love show business. Mr. Snoring is a passenger on the train to Vermont; vocal feature in the song “Snow.” This track also covers General Waverly. Any ethnicity
RITA AND RHONDA: Mid-Late 20’s
Bob and Phil’s two start chorus girls, they are brash, sexy, and fun, although perhaps not the smartest.
MIKE NULTY: Male, Mid 20’s-Early30’s
Bob and Phil’s stage manager. Has a tendency to be over-dramatic and completely hysterical, but will get things done. Never seen without hos whistle and clipboard, which he uses to attempt to keep order.
TESSIE: Female, Early-Mid 20’s
Bob and Phil’s extremely competent assistant.
JIMMY: Male, Mid-20’s to Early 30’s
The proprietor of “Jimmy’s Back Room,” a none-too-classy nightclub

Macbeth
Written by: William Shakespeare
Director: TBD
Contract Dates: February 10th – March 29th, 2020
LORT C Contract
Macbeth – Male, any ethnicity, 35-45.
Macbeth is a brave soldier and a powerful man, but he is not a virtuous one. Easily tempted into murder to fulfill his ambitions to the throne, and once he commits his first crime and is crowned King of Scotland, he embarks on further atrocities with increasing ease. Ultimately, Macbeth proves himself better suited to the battlefield than to political intrigue, because he lacks the skills necessary to rule without being a tyrant. His response to every problem is violence and murder. Macbeth is never comfortable in his role as a criminal. He is unable to bear the psychological consequences of his atrocities.
Lady Macbeth – Female, any ethnicity, 35-45.
Macbeth’s wife, a deeply ambitious woman who lusts for power and position. Strong and ruthless. After the bloodshed begins, however, Lady Macbeth falls victim to guilt and madness to an even greater degree than her husband. Her conscience affects her to such an extent that she eventually commits suicide. Deeply in love with Macbeth; very sexual being.
The Three Witches – Any gender, any ethnicity, 25-60.
Mischief-makers. Of the cosmos. Take perverse delight in using their knowledge to toy with and destroy human beings. Strong vocal, physical actors.
Banquo – Male, any ethnicity, 35-45.
The brave, noble general whose children, according to the witches’ prophecy, will inherit the Scottish throne. Thinks ambitious thoughts, but he does not translate those thoughts into action.
King Duncan – Male, any ethnicity, 60-70.
The good King of Scotland whom Macbeth, in his ambition for the crown, murders. Duncan is the model of a virtuous, benevolent, and farsighted ruler.
Macduff – Male, any ethnicity, 35-45.
A Scottish nobleman hostile to Macbeth’s kingship from the start. Vengeful.
Malcolm – Male, any ethnicity, 20-30.
The son of Duncan, whose restoration to the throne signals Scotland’s return to order following Macbeth’s reign of terror. At times weak and uncertain of his own power.
Hecate – Any gender, any ethnicity, 30-60.
The goddess of witchcraft, who helps the three witches work their mischief on Macbeth.
Fleance – Male, any ethnicity, 9-13.
Banquo’s son, who survives Macbeth’s attempt to murder him.
Lennox – Male, any ethnicity, 35-50.
A Scottish nobleman.
Ross – Male, any ethnicity, 35-50.
A Scottish nobleman.
The Murderers – Any gender, any ethnicity, 25-35.
A group of ruffians conscripted by Macbeth to murder Banquo, Fleance (whom they fail to kill), and Macduff’s wife and children.
Porter – Male, any ethnicity, 25-45.
The drunken doorman of Macbeth’s castle.
Lady Macduff – Female, any ethnicity, 35-45.
Macduff’s wife. Loving, motherly.

Alabama Story
Written by: Kenneth Jones
Director: TBD
Contract Dates: April 2nd, 2020 – May 31st, 2020
SETTING: 1959 ALABAMA
LORT D Contract
GARTH WILLIAMS, 40s-60s or older, a white writer and children’s book illustrator. A rangy, versatile, chewy, formidable, protean character actor who can play frisky and intelligent as East Coast-flavored GARTH, a character slightly analogous to the Stage Manager in “Our Town,” but assumes “Southern” demeanor elsewhere. He assumes other roles, including aged, sickly Alabama State Representative BOBBY CRONE, dedicated Montgomery newspaper reporter HERSCHEL WEBB, segregationist columnist HENRY BALCH, a Montgomery RADIO ANNOUNCER and Alabama WHITE PASSERSBY.

LILY WHITFIELD, 32, a white woman from small-town Alabama privilege; genteel Alabama accent. She is sheltered, ashamed, loyal, religious, garrulous, charming, unhappily married, all façade, ready to blossom. A good daughter. A Southern belle whose wounds and regrets are evident under the surface of her charm and chatter. Childhood trauma and family tradition have kept her in a narrow world and she can easily slip into the past, curious about the man who got away. Girlish at the top of the play, but evolved by the end. A faded Juliet, unhappily married, a rueful girl next door seeking to heal a primary wound. Flashback takes her to age eleven.
JOSHUA MOORE, 32, upwardly mobile middle-class African-American man who left Alabama for the Midwest more than a decade ago; purposely subtle and suppressed Alabama accent, which becomes pronounced when agitated. He is aspirational, loyal, kind, worldly, slow to boil, a disciple of Dr. King. Knows his place in the world of the segregated South, but can push against it and be pulled into the past when seeking to heal a primary wound. Happily married, but curious about the girl who got away. A war hero with patience, virtue and a wish to educate, but he has a breaking point. Practical and progressive, with an Atheist leaning. Flashback takes him to age eleven. Think young Sidney Poitier.
SENATOR E.W. HIGGINS, 50s-60s, a white Alabama State Senator; pronounced but not extreme Alabama accent. Swaggering Southern politician committed to tradition at all costs. He owns every room that he’s in, or so he thinks. He is a charmer, a bully, a poisoner, a politician, a victim of the world he grew up in, with a wounded child deep inside. Not a caricature, not a cartoon, knows his world and does his homework. Never wrong and never sorry. Think charismatic George Wallace or Big Daddy in “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.”
EMILY WHEELOCK REED, 50s-60s, a white librarian, the State Librarian of Alabama, born in North Carolina and raised in Indiana; no Southern accent. Formidable. Heroic, without wearing it on her sleeve. The most educated character in the play. Passionate about work. She has no sense of humor, she does not suffer fools, she is all-business. Champion of librarianship and the freedom to read without marching and waving a banner. More introvert than extrovert, dignity of hard work. but can but can more than hold her own when defending her job to the men in power. Doesn’t wear politics on her sleeve. Rarely wrong.
THOMAS FRANKLIN, 28, a white reference librarian, Emily’s assistant, an Alabama native; genteel, educated, pronounced Alabama accent. He is officious, efficient, slightly uncomfortable in his own skin, possibly quirky, a bookworm, very good at his job, deeply protective of his boss, pre-thinks everything. A good son. A slight mystery about him. Gay and closeted. Neutral and objective when conveying information about the state of the Deep South. A grown-up kid who becomes a man. Doesn’t wear politics on his sleeve.
Please avoid stereotype or caricature. These are real people, if slightly heightened; they are not cartoons.

Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
New Book by Douglas Carter Beane
Original Book by Oscar Hammerstein II
Director: TBD
Contract Dates: June 9th – August 2nd, 2020
LORT C Contract
Ella: Though no one notices her beneath her rags and quiet demeanor, she is opinionated, charismatic, passionate, beautiful and funny. Idealistic and hopeful, she courageously challenges the prince to change the policies in his kingdom and helps him discover who he truly is. Always her late father’s daughter, she is determined to see the good in everyone despite her hardships and suffering. We see her blossom into a confident woman
Topher: A misguided and lost prince who longs to do something important with his life. Though brave and heroic, he feels lonely and unfulfilled. Charming but NOT a stereotypical ladies man, he is thoughtful, appealing and innocent with an unforced goofy streak. Moral, genuine and kindhearted, he is at a crossroads and must take control of his kingdom and his future.
Jean-Michel: A feisty, passionate peasant determined to make a change for the starving class. Impetuous. A firebrand, but lacks authority and isn’t taken seriously as a revolutionary. Has a crush on Gabrielle, though their courtship is forbidden because they are from different social classes.
Gabrielle: Ella’s stepsister and daughter for Madame. Encouraged by her mother and sister to value material wealth and social status, she unenthusiastically joins them in their abrasive behavior. Quietly passionate, empathetic, and witty, she is drawn to Ella and Jean-Michel. Ironically aware that she doesn’t fit in.
Charlotte: Ella’s stepsister and daughter of Madame. Brash, self-centered, materialistic, snooty, loud, sassy, and bratty, she has a ridiculously high, but unfounded opinion of herself. She never passes up an opportunity to be the center of attention.
Marie: A friend to Ella and the town’s resident crazy lady and beggar woman, Marie is actually a fairy godmother in disguise. Wise, warm, otherworldly and charming. Marie rewards Ella for her kindness by making her dreams a possibility.
Madame: Ella’s selfish stepmother. The epitome of vanity and fashion. A ravenous social climber who values wealth, status, and material possessions above all else. Unapologetically dismissive and sometimes cruel, Madame schemes her way up the social ladder.
Sebastian: The kingdom’s Lord Chancellor. Though he is Topher’s trusted advisor, he is devious and selfish. Using propaganda and dishonesty, he keeps Topher isolated and in the dark about his kingdom. Sebastian rules without regard for the lower class, or anyone other than himself – and truly believes he deserves to rule the kingdom.
Lord Pinkleton: The Lord Chancellor’s right-hand man. Announces royal balls, banquets and even the weather to the villagers.
Ensemble Roles Available. Roles Include: Giant, Fox (Puppet), Raccoon (Puppet), Footman, Coachman, Knights,, Peasants, Serfs, Townspeople, Ladies and Gentlemen of the Court, Servants, etc.

A LADY:
Poem: “Little Rock, Arkansas”
Very young, naïve. She’s had to learn about hatred and fighting it with goodness opposed to more hatred at a very young age. 14 years old. Still learning how to communicate with others. It’s not that she doesn’t know what to say, she’s just needs a bit more time to get good at articulating. She just wants to be amongst people that maybe already understand her opposed to those that immediately judge her and make ignorant assumptions. Ethnicity: Black / African Descent
ANOTHER LADY:
Poem: “A Prayer”
She’s 50+. She represents a great aunt, or grandma that prays for A Lady once she leaves for school. Her faith carries her through all of the ups and downs of life. If only everyone could just be happy. People, especially romantic interests, have told her that she’s complicated. She disagrees with this, because her goals are actually very simple. It’s everything else that muddles her paths and causes the complications. Ethnicity: Black / African Descent
THIS LADY:
Poem: “Just Women”
College student that’s very active in the Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee. Very confident and powerful, yet she has an innocence about her. Early 20’s. Has recently discovered that her voice is a tool. Is not here for foolishness. Ethnicity: Black / African Descent
THAT LADY:
Poem: “Just Women”
She’s in her late 40’/50s (not as old as Another Lady. She’s an active member of the Black Panther Party and is over all of it. She just wants what’s best for her and her community and is fed up with discrimination, racism, sexism, etc. She’s not aggressive, but it’s clear that she’s prepared to do all she can to support her vigilant cause. Has been in the midst of bs for too long now. Ethnicity: Black / African Descent
SOME LADY:
Poem: “How Many”
Old enough to have a daughter that’s 13 years old. This is maybe her youngest daughter. She’s maybe in/around her 40’s. Definitely younger than Another Lady. Like us all, she’s struggling with working on herself. She’s tired of being hurt from love and by love. She can’t figure out if she’s the problem or not but can understand why she would ever be the problem. Love isn’t her ultimate goal, but it sure would nice to have along the way. She isn’t sure if it actually will- if someone will ever truly love her the way she wants. Ethnicity: Black / African Descent
OTHER LADY:
Poem: “Hands”
In her 30’s. I don’t think she should be older than that because she’s in Awkward Black Girls with Some Other Lady. She enslaved on a plantation in the deep south, so she endures very hard life, yet through it all she’s proud of who she is and finds space and time to recognize her resilience. She’s dealt with being awkward from a very young age. Because of this, she understands her feelings and body very well and accepts that the awkwardness will never subside. She “handles” it as best as she can. Ethnicity: Black / African Descent
SOME OTHER LADY:
Poem: “How Many”
Late 20’s. Very inspired and reinvigorated to live in NYC and pursue a new life in art. Proud, a bit naïve, very inquisitive. She’s also of the awkward sort. She seems to not be heard even when she’s sure she’s speaking up. She’s a perfectionist that’s guilty of trying too hard. She has no chill. Ethnicity: Black / African Descent
ONE MORE LADY:
Poem: Black Female Artist
Early 30’s. She’s sassy and doesn’t need help with accessing her self-confidence. She’s fed up and tired of the system and has been ready to be a force for change. She isn’t good at concealing her emotions. They stay on her as she feels them. This is why people have so many questions that she’s tired of pretending to answer. Her rap reveals her response to the world that won’t seem to leave her be. She can snap back ignorance with fire so smooth that people won’t understand until she’s gone. Ethnicity: Black / African Descent
LAST LADY:
Poem: “Grace”
Mid 20’s. She’s still grieving her Dad’s death. Last Lady is self-conscious, is tired and almost unaware that she holds the power to make a difference. She’s doesn’t understand the positive influence her plight and words have on her community. She’s always exhausted from her struggle of holding it all- of trying to be the best Black girl she can be. She wants to sleep, but truly will never stop. Ethnicity: Black / African Descent
