The Legend of Georgia McBride Roles:
Casey/Georgia: Male, 24-27 20s, male, southern. Casey: Charismatic and good-looking small-town high school football star turned Elvis impersonator; has the biggest of hearts and loves his wife ferociously; dreams big, if not always practically; his charm and optimism are infectious; hasn’t had to grow up and take real responsibility for his life/family just yet; an artist who hasn’t yet found his voice.
Georgia: A wholly original drag queen with Elvis, country and rock 'n' roll roots; gritty, edgy, sexy, a force of nature; a transcendent artist who inspires her audiences to dream of a better life; vulnerable, driven, responsible, and completely self-possessed; joyous and thrilling. Note: Role requires dancing in heels, lip syncing, singing and playing guitar.
Eddie: Male, 50-69 50s/60s, male, southern. Easily flustered and financially-desperate owner of a struggling dive bar; rough around the edges, a bit of a walking ulcer, but a huge heart; ferociously loyal and loving to his makeshift family; a man of simple tastes and simple needs, he doesn’t take naturally to the stage as an emcee--but eventually becomes an amateur showman who loves the spotlight.
Miss Tracy Mill: Male, 44-47 mid- to late 40s, male, southern. Sweet-natured drag queen, and drag mother to Casey; her impeccable timing, wit, and charm can disarm anyone; deeply nurturing by nature, she thrives on being a mentor, but is ruthlessly pragmatic when she needs to be; ready to find a home and build something meaningful and lasting; equal parts inspiration and desperation. Role requires dancing in heels and lip syncing.
Glass Menagerie Roles:
Amanda Wingfield: Female, 50-60 a faded Southern belle from a prominent family who received a traditional upbringing but has suffered a reversal of fortune and social standing. Extroverted and theatrical. Often withdraws from reality into fantasy in difficult circumstances.
Tom Wingfield: Male, 20s conflicted and full of contradictions. A lover of literature and poetry who dreams of adventure and escape. However, he is inextricably bound to the Wingfield household.
