Breakdown

Desiree Armfeldt – 40’s to 50’s; Alto; talk-singing is stylistically appropriate. She is a beautiful, desirable but maturing leading lady in a touring theatrical company. Worldly but not always wise. Her days as a leading lady are numbered but she still attracts the crowd and men. She was once Frederick’s mistress.

Frederick Egerman – 50’s; Baritone, A up to E above middle C. He is a successful, widowed lawyer who has married a much younger woman. He is tiring of the effort required to woo her and keep her content.

Madame Armfeldt – late 60’s to 70’s. Low alto; talk singing is stylistically appropriate. Desiree’s mother. A grande dame of a more refined era. She once numbered kings among her lovers. Now she cares for Desiree’s 14 year old daughter.

Henrik Egerman – 20’s; Tenor, needs sustained B below High C. Frederick’s son by his first wife. He is a somber, confused divinity student who plays the cello in times of stress.

Anne Egerman – late teens to early 20’s; Soprano to Ab. Frederick’s young wife. She is sometimes silly in her girlishness and cruel in her immaturity. She is pleased with the social position that her marriage has brought her, but not quite so pleased with her much older husband.

Fredericka – Desiree’s daughter. CAST

Count Carl-Magnus Malcolm – 30’s to 40’s; Baritone or Tenor, ranges to F above middle C. He is a wildly jealous dragoon whi is currently Desiree’s paramour.

Countess Charlotte Malcolm – 30’s; Mezzo to Alto (G below middle C to B above). Carl-Magnus’ long suffering wife. She is aware of her husband’s infidelity and alternates between humiliation and sarcasm.

Petra – 20’s; Solid belter, F# – B with a mix to Db. She is a warm blooded, provocative maid to the Egerman family. She is full of life and very aware of how attractive she is.

Frid – Madame Armfeldt’s silent but capable butler. Non-singing role. He is always there to pour coffee, to light a cigarette or to carry Madame of the room. Strong, sexy and a real presence.

Osa – Madame Armfeldt’s maid. Non-singing role.

Mr. Lindquist – Legit Baritone (solid down to a Ab)

Mrs. Nordstrom – Legit Soprano. Score includes a sustained E above high C.

Mrs. Andersen – Legit Soprano/Mezzo (to F).

Mr. Erlanson – Legit Tenor to Bb

Mrs. Segstrom – Legit Soprano/Mezzo to F

Mama Rose
40’s to early 50s. The ultimate Vaudeville “stage mother” with a drive to make both of her daughters famous! Rose has a sex appeal that can catch the eye of a man. Her Brassy voice should peel the paint and her movement should prove that she is the REAL star in the family! Rose drives the show!

Dainty June
18ish (looks younger) The Daughter. Fading child Vaudeville performer. Think adult Jon Bonnet Ramsey! Her singing and speaking voice should have a bright ping belt quality. She must be an accomplished dancer. Splits, cartwheels, Pointe a must. Light baton twirling helpful.

Louise
The OTHER daughter. Early 20’s. This character must be an accomplished actress. Within moments she must transfer from the less talented daughter into the world famous stripper Gypsy Rose Lee. Must be comfortable in very high heels and have a very lean, fit figure to wear a skimpy 2-piece showgirl costume. Sexy walk is a MUST

Herbie
40s to early 50’s. The handsome and romantic love interest of Rose. He acts as manager of Dainty June’s vaudeville show. Baritone range with light movement. This is a pivotal acting role!

Tulsa
20’s The Perfect Tenor-Tap-ballet-chorus boy. Tulsa must have the technique and stage presence to command the stage alone. He aspires to have is own vaudeville show.

Mazzeppa
BRASH and Ballsy Trumpet playing Burlesque Stripper. She is VERY intimidating and frankly slightly scary. Good mover with big belt. Trumpet playing helpful. Character actress!

Tessie Tura
30’s to 50’s Burlesque Stripper. Strong actor/Singer/Dancer. The classic lean showgirl body and poise. Ballet in high heels a must.

Electra
30s to 50s Stunning show girl figure and not ashamed to show it! Electra has to be smart enough to dance and bevel while controlling a light show in her costume. Previous experience is not necessary. Singing and dancing a must. The track may also double in the role of “Miss Cratchit”. She is the SECRETARY to a producer/director.

Breakdown

ALL THE WAY, the 2014 Tony Award winner for Best Play written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan, is based on Lyndon Baines Johnson’s prolific first year as President, and featuring many of the 20th Century’s most famous leaders including Martin Luther King, Jr., J. Edgar Hoover, Governor George Wallace, Senator Hubert Humphrey, Secretary of Defense Robert J. McNamara and President Johnson himself. ZACH Theatre’s production, directed by Dave Steakley, will be the premiere performance of this play in President Johnson’s home state of Texas.

LYNDON BAINES JOHNSON
White male, mid-late 50s. US President and master politician. Brave and brutal, compassionate and cruel, intelligent and insensitive, with an uncanny instinct for the jugular of his allies and adversaries. Possessing a marvelous, often crude sense of humor. Privately a font of extraordinary insecurity and vulnerability.

MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.
African-American male, 30s. Civil rights leader trying hard to keep the movement together through impossible tradeoffs. Charismatic, insightful and conciliatory. Not a saint, but a man of high ideals.
