CHARACTER BREAKDOWN

GARTH WILLIAMS, 40s to early 60s, white omnipresent narrator. Educated abroad, a famous American illustrator of children’s books. Humane storyteller at ease with sincerity and sentiment, yet capable of a waspish comic remark. He also assumes the roles of OTHERS, including a wizened and infirm 80-year-old Old School Southern politician, a liberal Montgomery reporter, a Florida newspaper columnist and a menacing local citizen. A nimble chameleon with gravitas. Think the Stage Manager in “Our Town.”

SENATOR E.W. HIGGINS, late 40s to early 60s, a white Alabama State Senator, bawn ‘n’ bred in Alabama. Implacable in his belief in the traditions of the South. A charismatic bully given to speechifying and posturing but can be a cool and calculating game player when on the attack. 98 percent unflappable. Passionate and desperate, but rarely showing the latter. A bear of a man. Welcomes the spotlight. Think of him as a cousin to “Big Daddy” in “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.”

EMILY WHEELOCK REED, 50s, white State Librarian of Alabama. Raised in Indiana; more Midwestern than Southern. Pert, businesslike, completely unsentimental, quick on her feet, excellent at her job, rare to show her weakness in public. 98 percent unflappable. Limited sense of humor, but not a librarian cliché — not a drudge or a spinster or a prude. Has worked in the system enough to know how to be politic and moderate while still pushing for what she wants. Avoids the spotlight.

THOMAS FRANKLIN, 27, white reference librarian, assistant to Emily Reed, head of the State Library’s reference department. An Alabama native. Educated, exacting, fiercely loyal, a Type-A personality at work, hiding a secret or two, which might give him the slight quality of seeming shifty, sensitive, shy or slightly peculiar at times. Charming. Dryly funny.

LILY WHITFIELD, 32, a white woman from small-town Alabama privilege. A Southern belle, with some wear around the edges. Sheltered, still living in her ancestral home. Delicate, hiding a secret, sentimental and quick to conjure the past. Mercurial, garrulous, charming, vivacious, with streaks of sadness. Impulsive. Her chemistry with Joshua is palpable.

JOSHUA MOORE, 32, a middle-class African-American man who left Alabama when he was 20 following a childhood trauma that involved Lily’s family. Upwardly mobile and confident, but aware of the limits of the Jim Crow South. Has shed his Southern accent, though it surfaces in passion. Focused, content with life, emotionally measured but not afraid to express himself. Burdened by the past without knowing it. His chemistry with Lily is palpable.

Breakdown

Based on the best selling book by Albert Cullum, this avant-garde musical explores the inner thoughts and feelings of elementary school students as they navigate their way through the trials and tribulations of an ordinary day at school.

Seeking all ethnicities. Looking for distinct, strong, young actors who sing – to play second graders. Not looking for “showbizzy” kids – seeking honest, open, funny and real children.

SEEKING:

THE GERANIUM
Female to play 7-8 years old. Mysterious and haunting. Something has died in her. She spends most of the musical completely silent and unresponsive but has an enormous life force inside. The other children interact with her as if she’s a geranium on the windowsill. She comes to life at the end of the musical.

KATIE
Female to play 7-8 years old. A dreamer. Fearless. She’s a real actress. Curious, emotional, instinctive and ultimately brave. Connects to the geranium and leads the class against the teacher.

AMY
Female to play 7-8 years old. Teacher’s pet. She’s quiet, studious and sweet. A perfectionist. She wears glasses. OCD. She’s always the first and the best but secretly filled with anxiety.

OLIVIA
Female to play 7-8 years old. A lot going on under the surface. Her parents are recently divorced and she’s trying to navigate through the new family setup. She spends a lot of time alone.

SARA
Female to play 7-8 years old. A tomboy. Offbeat sense of humor. She’s a mimic and a chameleon. A little standup comedian.

MATTHEW
Male to play 7-8 years old. A troublemaker. He’s restless. Too smart for his own good. A charmer. He’s always getting into trouble and always getting out of it.

BOBBY
Male to play 7-8 years old. A messy, dirty, smelly boy. Easily distracted. He has a great sense of humor, wild imagination and sometimes he poops his pants in class. Young for his age. Funny. Maybe he’s chubby or different looking.

JACOB
Male to play 7-8 years old. Sensitive, awkward and small. Delicate. He has a vivid imagination and rich fantasy life where he dreams he’s a princess from a fairy tale.

NICK
Male to play 7-8 years old. A boy’s boy. The definition of average. Struggles to find his place in the classroom.

It’s 1992. Hank is struggling to keep his legendary rock club going amid changing times and changing tastes. When his beloved daughter, Lena, starts dating a rising star DJ, Hank must contend with the destructive power of the next big thing.

Seeking:

HANK

BETTE
(Late 40’s-50’s): Hank’s ex-wife. About the same age as Hank, maybe a few years younger. A tough, funny broad who can go toe-to-toe with Hank and anyone, really.

LENA
(Early 20’s): Hank’s daughter, in every way. Tough, a bit cryptic, cards kept close to the chest, has an air of disinterest that makes her irresistible to men.

NASH
(20’s): A DJ. A looker. A charmer. Driven and ambitious but has a heart, not too slick.

TOBY
(20’s): Hank’s bookkeeper, booker, guy who watches the door. A sweet, friendly rock nerd.

Breakdown

Seeking:

ANTONIO SALIERI
Ages 35 – 77 in the play. Italian composer and musician in the court of the Austrian Emperor Joseph II. He is proud, proper, restrained, ambitious. He has spent his life doing what is expected of him, and he wants the reward of being a magnificent composer, but his talent fails him. He is deeply and corruptingly jealous of Mozart.

WOLFGANG AMADEUS MOZART
Ages 25 – 35 in the play. Silly, passionate, absurd, and a genius composer, he comes to the court of Joseph II at the age of 25, and his reputation precedes him. His impolitic, frantic, mocking behavior makes enemies of the courtiers around him, and he and his family suffer from poverty and indignity. He is crude and brilliant.

CONSTANZE WEBER
Mozart’s wife. She is lower class, out of her depth at court, but principled and loves Mozart. She can be silly with him, but also admires his talent. She is shrewd when she needs to be.

JOSEPH II
The Emperor of Austria. His every opinion is supported and magnified by those around him. He is never challenged or questioned. He is a fundamentally uninteresting man made fascinating by his position.

COUNT JOHANN VON STRACK
COUNT FRANZ ORSINI-ROSENBERG
BARON VAN SWIETEN
These three men are in the Emperor’s inner circle. They are extremely skilled in the art of politics; they are wealthy, and they are knowledgeable. They are unused to making mistakes, or to admitting to making them. They hold themselves carefully, as if their power were a fragile thing.

THE VENTICELLI
These two men are Salieri’s spies—they are everywhere and bring him all the news and gossip. They blend in with everyone everywhere. They function as a chorus in the play.
