I am looking for actors to play over-the-top,
"comic book" characters with a genuine believability (Dick
Tracy/Roger Rabbit). Set in mythical New
York City, Guys and Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler Nathan Detroit
tries to find the cash to set up the biggest crap game in town while the
authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend, nightclub
headliner Adelaide, laments (ha!) that they’ve been engaged for 14 years.
Nathan turns to fellow gambler Sky Masterson for the dough, but Sky ends up
chasing the straight-laced missionary Sarah Brown.
SKY MASTERSON: Male, Baritone. A charming,
SARAH BROWN: Female, Soprano. An idealistic,
strong willed missionary.
NATHAN DETROIT: Male, Baritone. A good-hearted
MISS ADELAIDE: Female, Alto. A nightclub,
headline, showgirl and Nathan’s long-suffering fiancée.
NICELY-NICELY JOHNSON: Male, Tenor. The nicest
and cheeriest of the gambling crooks (sings the 11th hour number).
BENNY SOUTHSTREET: Male, Baritone. Nathan’s
HARRY THE HORSE: Male, Baritone. A tough guy
crook and gambler.
ARVIDE ABERNATHY: Male, Baritone. Sarah’s
GENERAL MATILDA CARTWRIGHT: Female,
Mezzo-Soprano. Salvation Army matron.
LIEUTENANT BRANNIGAN: Male, non-singing. A New
York police officer.
ENSEMBLE OF GAMBLERS, HOT BOX DANCERS, MISSION
SOULS & HAVANA FOLK: The show is full of many fun guys and dolls (ha!) that
can be played by any shape, size, ethnicity, or age (well, over 16 anyway).
Be prepared to sing 16-18 bars of a song you
enjoy singing, dance and read from the script. There’s no secret knock and you
don’t need to wear your red carnation.
