Casting performers ages 16 and older. Roles include:

Frederick Frankenstein: (30-49) a famous scientist dedicated to his work and innocent of the world at large. Intent to distance himself from his notorious grandfather whose scientific legacy is less than legitimate. A warm lyric Baritone who sings to E-flat, and a comic actor who combines the manic energy of Danny Kaye with the charm and elegance of Fred Astaire. Sings with effortless charm ("Puttin' On the Ritz") and requires vocal power for a full-voice traditional Broadway ballad.

Elizabeth: (30-39) Frederick’s spoiled and self-centered fiancée. Great comic role. A lyric Soprano with wide range (to High C) who can deliver a showy coloratura fireworks with complete ease. Music has a comic-operetta-ish sensibility that reflects the songs of Romberg, Herbert, Friml, and early Kern.

Igor: (20-49) a hunchback servant at the Frankenstein estate in Transylvania. Great comic role. High light Baritone (to F#), should have the nimble charm to sing English music hall style songs and the show-biz savvy of Jimmy Durante.

Inga: (20-99) a young local Transylvanian woman who becomes Dr. Frankenstein’s eager assistant. Oblivious to her own sexuality and appeal. A bright, clear youthful Broadway Mezzo with a high sustained belt to D-flat and a sweet mixed voice that extends up to high E.

Frau Blucher: (40-69) the housekeeper at the Frankenstein estate. She keeps the secrets of the past. A great slyly comic role. Requires skilled, dark, dramatic Lotte Lenya Alto with a real sense of the Berlin Cabaret world of the 1920s and 30s. Solid belt up to B-flat and a workable mix that extends up to E-flat.

Inspector Kemp/Blind Man: (40-59) one actor to play both roles. Head of the local police with highly developed sense of his own power and a keen desire to keep order in the town. The Blind Man is a recluse who enjoys a meal with Frankenstein’s monster. This double role requires a great comic, transformational actor. Big legit Bass-Baritone voice that can really open up and soar to high F. Should demonstrate very dramatic singing chops in terms of volume and the break-your-heart quality of a singer, like Al Jolson in his prime.

The Monster: (18-50) the monster created when Dr. Frankenstein performs his famous brain transplant. Bass-Baritone with good legit sound up to E-flat. Physically imposing.

Also various roles for chorus/dance ensemble.

Prepare a song from the show and be prepared to learn and demonstrate some choreography and read from the script.
Dr. Frankenstein aims to fulfill his grandfather's legacy by bringing a corpse back to life.

Rated R. A comedy based on the story written by the Greek author Aristophanes in 411 B.C. Lysistrata, an Athenian housewife, comes up with the idea of encouraging all the Greek women to hold a sexual strike from their husbands in an attempt to force the Athenian men into a peace treaty with Sparta. Shortly after the women take over the Acropolis, the men find out and attempt to break down the barriers. Many of the men try to influence and persuade their wives to leave the pack and return back home; Lysistrata and the women refuse and stand tall. Threatening the old men, they reinforce their importance in the household; not only do they cook, clean and raise children, but their services of pleasure to their husbands is also a method of empowerment. They ultimately use this to their advantage, showing the men what they're missing, and in doing so, the men are so wrought with anger and passion, that they eventually end the war with Sparta. Directed by Stan Barber.
