Character Breakdown

Man In Chair – (30- 50) Musical theatre aficionado who mourns the end of the Golden Era. He narrates the show as he listens to the record on vinyl.

Janet Van de Graaff: (25-35) Star of Feldzieg’s Follies who is conflicted about giving up her life on the stage to marry Robert Martin. Strong movement and special skills (acrobatics, juggling, etc.) a plus. Vocal range: Mezzo with big belt (G3-E5)

Robert Martin: (30-40) The groom-to-be who is deeply in love with Janet. He is the token 1920s leading man – debonair, dashing, and a matinee idol. Must be able to tap dance and roller skate.Vocal range: Tenor (C3 – Ab4)

The Drowsy Chaperone: (40s-50s) Janet’s alcoholic confidante. Care-free, often because she is drunk. Great comedic role. Think Liza Minnelli meets Tallulah Bankhead. Vocal range: Alto with strong belt (F3-D5)

Aldolpho: (35-45) Latin lothario. A womanizing cad who is very impressed with himself. Vaudeville-style acting and fake Spanish/Italian accent required. Should have great comic timing. Vocal range: Bass/Baritone + great falsetto (A#2-G4)

Mrs. Tottendale: (45-60) A wealthy widow and host of the wedding. She is flighty, eccentric, often times forgetful, and funny. She is absolutely charming, bubbly and oblivious to the confusion her behavior generates in other people. Vocal range: Alto character voice (G3-Db5)

Underling: (35-50) Mrs. Tottendale’s unflappable butler and manservant. He is stoic, dry-humored and sarcastic. A cross between Arthur Treacher and Niles the butler from The Nanny. Vocal range: Tenor character voice (Ab2-G4)

Mr. Feldzieg: (25-45) Harried producer who will do anything to stop the wedding in order to keep Janet in the Follies.Vocal range: Baritone (Db3-Db4)

Kitty: (25-30) Feldzieg’s dim-witted companion who has hopes of being a star. A cross between Norma Cassady from Victor Victoria and Lena Lamont from Singin’ in the Rain. Vocal range: Soprano comedic belt (Bb3-F5)
