SEEKING THE FOLLOWING ROLES ONLY:

[CHARLIE PRICE] Male, late 20s - early 30s, Caucasian. Just out of university, a really nice guy who has no clue what to do with the rest of his life. He’s handsome, lovable, but there’s a temper right under the skin. Henpecked by his girlfriend and a little lost.  Must have a great rock belt.

[LOLA/SIMON]  Male, early 30’s, African-American. An emotionally and physically challenging role requires the body of a boxer, with the soul of a Diva to play this scene-stealing drag performer. Must have a killer voice with power blues and gospel chops. Lola dances in very high heels and so has to move well.  This role calls for a STAR. This is the Tony Award Winning role originated by actor Billy Porter.

[DON] Male, 30s – 40s, Caucasian. Lola’s nemesis.  Burly hyper-masculine bear of a factory worker.

[TRISH] Female, 40s, any ethnicity. Factory worker with a husband and kids to worry over.

[ANGELS] Males, 20s – 30s, any ethnicity. These are the six drag performers who populate THE BLUE ANGEL NIGHTCLUB. They need to be versatile, but also terrific dancers, singers and actors. This ain’t a job for no wall-flowers. Tumbling, acro and tricks a plus.  Will be required to dance in heels. May cover principal roles.

[MALE SWINGS] Males, 20s – early 30s, any ethnicity. To cover the onstage ensemble factory workers, the featured ensemble roles of the ANGELS, and possibly principal roles.  Must be terrific dancers, singers and actors. These are offstage tracks.

Please note: If you have a disability and would like to request reasonable accommodations, please let us know prior to the auditions.
