Ensemble Dancers:

Men and women. All ethnicities; 20s – 30s. Singing a plus. Ensemble members may cover principal roles:

Niki Harris:

Female, late 20s – 30s, Soprano. Pretty, sweet, too-good-to-be-true ingénue. Niki is a chorus girl/understudy in the show-within-a-show during its Boston tryout, but aspires to one day make it on Broadway. She meets and falls in love with Lt. Frank Cioffi, who is investigating a murder at the theatre. Must have a legit soprano voice, good comic timing, and be a very good dancer.

Georgia Hendricks:

Female, 30s – early 40s, Alto/Mezzo. The female half of our songwriting team. She is the lyricist for the show-within-a-show and her writing partner, Aaron Fox, is also her husband, from whom she is separated. Takes on the role of leading lady when the star is murdered. Must sing well and be able to dance.

Daryl Grady:

Male, 30s. He is the theatre critic for the local Boston newspaper, and he enjoys using the power he has to make or break shows during their out-of-town tryouts.

Bobby Pepper:

Male, 20s – 30s, Baritone. He is the choreographer and charming lead dancer. Strong singer who dances well.

Bambi Bernstein:

Female, 20s – 30s, Alto/Belter. Performer in the chorus and daughter of Carmen. She is hungry to work her way up to leading performer. Many think she was only hired because of her mother. Excellent dancer and comedienne who sings well.
