Performances: February 13-16 & 20-23, 2025

Audition Info: 

We will be auditioning this show EARLY in order to spend the summer months filming required video sequences with the cast at carnivals, fairs and theme parks. We have performance scripts and resources already in hand.

Please prepare 16-32 bars of an upbeat musical number. You may be asked for a dance call. You will be asked to read sides from the script.

Rehearsals are Monday and Tuesday evenings starting November 2024. Rehearsals may be in Appleton or Green Bay (depending on the location of the cast majority).

The Amazing Karnak

Male - 35-50
Non-singing role; the narrator; a mechanical fortune-telling machine. Karnak will be a puppet operated by the actor portraying the role. If you are auditioning only for Karnak, you will not need to prepare a vocal audition or participate in movement call. 

 

Ocean O'Connell Rosenberg
Female - 18-25
The leader of the group, relentlessly competitive, sometimes cruel, though she sees herself as a virtuous person; high Broadway mix, with a pop quality; big range.

Misha Bachinski
Male - 18-25
adopted from the Ukraine as a teenager; he has thick Ukrainian dialect and a lot of rage; he is obsessed by Gansgsta Rap (an enormous fan of the auto-tune phenomena); there is a hidden, soulful romantic side; Baritenor with the ability to sing lyrical Ukrainian folk music as well rap.

Noel Gruber 
Male - 18-25
the only gay kid in Uranium; never had a relationship; obsessed by French New Wave cinema, he has fantasies of dying a tragic death. Must be able to sing in the style of a French chanteuse.

Ricky Potts
Male - 18-25
Begins the play wordless and on crutches; suffers from a degenerative disease that has left him speechless and mostly immobile; he discovers at the beginning of the play that in this strange purgatory, he has regained all of these abilities. Baritone rock voice; basic accordion and/or tumbling a plus.

Constance Blackwood
Female - 18-25
Overweight, and outwardly okay with it, but there is a very deep self-loathing. Will do anything for Ocean's friendship and allows herself to be used as a doormat; dubbed "the nicest girl in town," a

title she secretly despises. Very likable comic actress; alto belt, with a rock edge.

Jane Doe
Female - 18-25
She was decapitated in the accident and no one claimed her body; even though she isn't headless in the piece (but often carries around a headless doll). She reacts in a literal way and largely without emotion, almost robot-like; the other contestants are totally freaked out by her. Classically trained soprano with a flexible coloratura upper range, and some grit and meat in the lower register.
