SEASON BREAKDOWN

 

THE WIZ

Directed by: Marcus Denard Johnson

 

 

ROLES AVAILABLE

 

AUNT EM: Female, Mid 30’s (Range: Mezzo Soprano, G3-C5)

Dorothy’s Aunt. Life has not been easy for her and promises little else. Harsh towards Dorothy at times, but acts out of love.

 

DOROTHY: Female (Range:  Mezzo Soprano, G3-B5)

Bright eyed and alive as can be. Would rather remain a child as long as possible instead of accepting the responsibilities of adulthood.

 

UNCLE HENRY: Male, (Range: Non-Singing)

Dorothy’s Uncle. Physically run down from years of hard work on the farm. Often acts as the voice of reason towards Aunt Em.

 

ADDAPERLE: Female, (Range: Mezzo Soprano, F3-C5)

Good Witch of the North. Has magic powers she refers to as “doing tricks.” Her magic abilities don’t always pan out as well as she would like them to.

 

SCARECROW: Male, (Range: Tenor, D3-A4)
Tired of being a scarecrow and the prospect of not going anywhere. Embarks on the journey to see The Wiz in hopes he can provide a brain.

 

TIN MAN: Male, (Range: Baritone, E3-A4)

Human at one time. Lost all his limbs to a cursed axe. Joins in the journey in hopes the Wiz will provide him a heart because “it isn’t enough to be good looking.”

 

LION: Male, (Range: Baritone, G2-Bb4)

Travels around the jungle scaring people, but has “a yellow streak a mile wide.” Coward state stems from deeper mother issues and gets regular counseling from an owl. Joins in the journey to see the Wiz to gain some courage.

 

GATEKEEPER: Male, (Range: Non-Singing)

Guards the gate to the Emerald City.

 

THE WIZ: Female/Male, (Range: Tenor/Alto, C3-A4)

All powerful leader over the land of Oz. Hides his true nature behind the façade of a temperamental leader. His true identity is an enigma.

 

EVILLENE: Female, Age Flexible (Range: Alto, Bb3-Db5)

Wicked Witch of the West. Low-down evil. Not a kind bone in her body nor kind thought in her rotten mind.

 

LORD HIGH UNDERLING: Male, Age Flexible (Range: Non-Singing)

Weak coward. Evillene’s number one.

 

WINGED MONKEY Male/Female (Range: Non-Singing)

Servant of the Wicked Witch of the West. Summoned to do her bidding. The mere mention of him brings fear. Strong movement/Dance skills.

 

GLINDA: Female, (Range: Alto, C4-Eb5)

Good Witch of the South. Prettiest of all the witches. Very wise in the way of show-business.

 

ENSEMBLE:
TOTO – a dog, PIT SINGERS, TORNADO, MUNCHKINS, CROWS, KALIDAHS, POPPIES, FIELD MICE, EMERALD CITY CITIZENS, SOLDIER MESSENGER

 

THE ODD COUPLE

Directed by: Jahnna Beecham

 

ROLES AVAILABLE

Felix Unger – A fussy man who knows that he is difficult to live with but cannot—or will not—make any concessions or compromises. His wife, unwilling to continue their marriage, asks him to leave the family despite his suicide threat, and he then moves in with Oscar. Made comical by his exaggerated behavior, Felix is persuaded by the end of the play to live temporarily with the Pigeon sisters, who pity him, but it is probable that they too will find him exasperating.

Gwendolyn Pigeon – Oscar and Felix’s giggly upstairs neighbor, one of a pair of English sisters. She is a widow.

Cecily Pigeon – Oscar and Felix’s giggly upstairs neighbor, one of a pair of English sisters. She is a divorcée.

Speed – One of Oscar and Felix’s poker buddies. Gruff and sarcastic, often picking on Vinnie and Murray.

Murray – A NYPD policeman, one of Oscar and Felix’s poker buddies.

Roy – One of Oscar and Felix’s poker buddies. Oscar’s accountant. Roy has a dry wit but is less acerbic than Speed.

Vinnie – One of Oscar and Felix’s poker buddies. Vinnie is mild-mannered and henpecked, making him an easy target for Speed’s verbal barbs.
