Productions dates are Nov. 5-14.

Robbie Hart: (age 25-35) The lead singer of the band. Handsome and charismatic. A truly nice guy that has the classic lead singer aura and personality. Also a bit of a dreamer. In love with love until Linda leaves him at the altar and breaks his heart. Guitar playing would be welcome. B3-C6

Sammy: (age 25–35) The bass player in the wedding band and one of Robbie’s best friends. A total guy’s guy, but beneath his pretending to love being a bachelor but he is actually in love with Holly. C4-A5

George: (age 25-35) The wedding band’s keyboardist and one of Robbie’s best friends. He is sensitive and somewhat flamboyant. The foil to Sammy’s super guy attitude. C4-A5

Julia Sullivan: (Age 25-35) Waitress. The pretty girl next door in looks and personality. Engaged to Glen but falls in love with Robbie and is conflicted as to who to choose. Empathetic, caring and brave. G3-F5

Holly: (Age 25-35) Julia’s cousin. Sexually promiscuous and always up for a good time, but wants to be loved and is looking for romantic fulfillment in all the wrong places. She is in love with Sammy.

Glen Guglia: (age 30-45) Julia’s fiance. A Wall Street broker. He is rich, shallow, and materialistic. Constantly tries to buy Julia’s love with money. He is a bit of a womanizer. D4-B5

Rosie: (age 60-80) Robbie’s grandmother who raised him. Motherly but adventurous and always trying to remain “hip” despite her age. C4-C5

Linda: (age 25-35) Robbie’s fiance who leaves him at the altar. Keeps Robbie around as a back-up plan. Is more in love with the idea of being a rock star than she actually is with Robbie. A3-D5

Ensemble (10-12) will include featured dancers and non-dancers; multiple ages, ethnicities
