Breakdown

NOTE: Dames at Sea is a valentine to the early 30s Busby Berkeley movie musicals. It must not be “sent up”or played for camp. All actors must have period style and keen comic sensibilities. This production will be a tap dancing extravaganza –all the more clever, as there are only 6 actors in the cast.
________________________________________

SEEKING THE FOLLOWING ROLES:

MONA
(early 30s to mid 40s): The ultimate Broadway diva. A true star of the highest caliber. Comedic actress with strong singing and dancing skills including high level of tap.

RUBY
(late teens to early 20s): Innocent, pure, right off the bus from Centerville, Utah, with hopes of becoming a Broadway star. There must be something very special about the actress playing this role. She is not the typical ingénue. Strong legit singer and strong dancer including high level of tap.

JOAN
(early to mid 20s): Tough-talking, wise-cracking chorus girl, but "mother hen" to Ruby. Strong belt and mix and strong dancer including high level of tap.

HENNESEY/CAPTAIN
(mid 30s to mid 40s): This is a dual role played by one actor. HENNESEY is the harried stage director about to lose his theater and job if his show doesn't open. The CAPTAIN commands the ship where the show ultimately takes place. Strong comedic actor and strong singing skills and movement.

DICK
(early to mid 20s): A sailor who is also a song writer. He falls hard for RUBY, but gets entangled with MONA. Must be earnestly sincere. Strong singer and strong dancer including high level of tap. High baritone.

LUCKY
(early to mid 20s): A sailor, best buddy to DICK. A charming character comedian. He is in love with JOAN, but won't commit to her. Strong singer and strong dancer including high level of tap. Baritone.
