The role of Kate/Lilli is cast. All other roles open.
Lois Lane—20-30 strong mezzo belter. She is an actress, the quintessential airhead ingénue but with lots of charisma and charm. She also plays Bianca in The Shrew.
Bill Calhoun—20-30, strong tenor or baritenor. He is a ne’er-do-well actor who has a bit of a gambling problem. Is a Broadway hoofer, so he should move well. He also plays Lucentio in The Shrew.
Hattie—Mezzo Soprano. Lilli’s dresser.
Paul—Tenor or Baritenor. Fred’s dresser
First Man (Gangster)— Comic baritone or tenor. He is the archetypical gangster complete with accent. Does some soft shoe in “Brush Up Your Shakespeare” so should move well.
Second Man (Gangster)—Qualities the same as the First Man, but a bit more reserved and dryer of wit.
Harrison Howell—50+, does not sing. Dignified gentleman from Georgia, very political,. He is a little stuffy and kind of a hick and can have a bit of a Southern accent.
Harry Trevor—He is an actor who appears mostly in The Shrew as Katherine and Bianca’s father, Baptista.
Ralph—Stage manager of the show-within-a-show
Gremio and Hortensio—tenor or baritenor. Actors who appear in The Shrew.
Ensemble—Actors, stage crew, wardrobe, etc, who sing in the ensemble throughout, both in modern day and in The Shrew.
