BREAKDOWN
Set during the final days before the American evacuation of Saigon in 1975, MISS SAIGON is a passionate and powerful story about an American G.I., Chris, and a young Vietnamese woman, Kim, who fall in love, just as their world is falling apart around them.
SEEKING:
THE ENGINEER:
VOCAL RANGE – HIGH BARITONE/TENOR TO TOP A FLAT.
Non-Caucasian. The sleazy but likeable owner of “Dreamland”. A pimp. Half-Vietnamese and half-French. A sly, manipulative animal, always looking to stay one step ahead and take advantage of the American occupation of Saigon. He sincerely believes he should have been born in the West – the land of free enterprise – where his entrepreneurial and commercial skills would be given free rein. Should have great ‘theatrical’ dexterity and almost feline physicality.

KIM:
Adult 18+ to play 17; VOCAL RANGE – STRONG CHEST VOICE UP TO E, LOW TO G. Vietnamese. 17 years of age. Vulnerable and innocent.
CHRIS:
19-23 yrs. old; VOCAL RANGE – TENOR, SINGS TO G – TOP B IN FALSETTO. Young, good looking, American Marine. Applicants should have an excellent rock tenor voice.
ELLEN:
20-25 yrs. old; VOCAL RANGE – CHEST VOICE UP TO E. LOW TO G. American, middle-class wife of Chris.
JOHN:
20s-30s; VOCAL RANGE – TENOR TO TOP B FLAT. THIS ROLE IS NON-CAUCASIAN; American Marine.
THUY:
20s; VOCAL RANGE – TOP B FLAT; A young, self-obsessed Vietnamese. Through a cultural wedding bond made by respective parents, he has been promised Kim’s hand in marriage. An implacable, totally vengeful character who sees life in his own single, simple dimension. Should instill enough fear that he remains in Kim’s consciousness to haunt her for the rest of her life.
TAM:
4-6 yrs.old; Boy or Girl; THIS CHARACTER IS ASIAN and must feel more like an older toddler than a school child; Should be able to show a certain amount of confidence and be small/slight – this is Kim’s son
