Breakdown

Performances to take place at the Kavli Theatre, Bank of America Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza, Thousand Oaks, CA. There is pay for all roles for ages 18 and up. All roles are available. DIVERSITY: All ethnic types encouraged for all roles.


APPLEGATE (to play 40-60): Humorous, cynical devil, skilled actor, great comic timing. Applegate is consumed with winning the soul of Joe Boyd, and makes the deal with Joe that the play hinges on: Joe being transformed to a great baseball player for the Washington Senators, in exchange for his soul at the end of the season. Movement a plus. Must sing (Bb2-Eb4).

LOLA (to play 25 - 40): The ultimate seductress, Lola works for Applegate. She is assigned to seduce Joe and take his mind off his wife, thus fulfilling his contract and losing his soul to the devil. Deep inside, Lola has a soft heart- especially for Joe. Excellent dancer/singer/actress with comic gifts and a vulnerable heart beneath her bravado. Must dance and sing (F3-C5).

JOE HARDY (to play 18 - 30): Respectful, athletic, clean-cut, all-American baseball hero, but with the conflicted soul of a man much older. Must move and sing (Bb2-F4).

JOE BOYD (to play 50 - 65): An aging baseball fanatic, Joe would do anything to help his beloved Washington Senators take the pennant, including selling his soul. In fact, he does strike a deal with the devil, who transforms him into a young slugger who helps win the pennant for the Senators. However, the deal also requires Joe to give up his life at the end of the season. Must sing (A2-G4).

GLORIA (to play 25 - 40): Spunky, ambitious young reporter with a love of baseball and a fearless quality. Not afraid to hang with the boys. Must move very well. Strong brassy belt voice (Bb3-Db5).

VAN BUREN (to play 40-60): The crusty, hard-working manager of the Washington Senators with great heart but no luck. Must sing well (Eb3-F4).

ROCKY, SMOKEY, VERNON (to play 18 - 40): Baseball players for the Washington Senators, varied physical types, good sense of comedy, featured in the number “Heart.” Must move well, hold harmony and sing (Eb3-Bb4).
