The plot is simple: a down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant devise a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history, bilking their backers (all "little old ladies") out of millions of dollars. Only one thing goes awry: the show is a smash hit! The antics of Max Bialystock and Leo Bloom as they maneuver their way fecklessly through finding a show (the gloriously offensive "Springtime for Hitler"), hiring a director, and raising the money in efforts to pull off the perfect con. At the core of the insanely funny adventure is a poignant emotional journey of two very different men who become friends!

*Please note that this is an absurd comedy, and actors can expect adult language and themes, sexual innuendo, LGBTQ+ characters, flamboyant nazis, and ribald humor that may be offensive to some.


MUSIC: Please prepare 32 bars (approximately 30 seconds to 1 minute) of a musical theater song in the style of the show. You may audition with a song from the show. A pianist and Bluetooth speaker will be provided. Please bring music in the correct key with cuts clearly marked and no tracks with backing/guided vocals or acapella auditions. If your selection exceeds the time limit, the production team may cut you off due to time constraints.

MONOLOGUE: Either prepare a 30-second comedic monologue of your choice OR read one of the monologues provided. These resources can be found here:

DANCE: Dancing will be done at the callbacks on Saturday, April 13, by invitation only, If you have any skills like tumbling, please be prepared to showcase these abilities at the dance call. Please bring character and tap shoes if you have them.

REHEARSALS: Begin Monday, April 22, with a mandatory cast meeting. Rehearsals generally run Mondays - Thursdays, 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM, and on Saturdays during the day. Some rehearsals may be scheduled on Fridays and Sundays as needed. 

A tentative calendar will be available at auditions. Please be sure to list ALL conflicts on your audition form, including days we do not specify we have rehearsals.

* = Indicates roles that require staged intimacy, which may include, but not limited to, kissing

+ = Indicates roles that tapping abilities are preferred 

∆ = Indicates roles that require physical and slapstick comedy 

Max Bialystock (Male to play age 40 to 55/Vocal Range A2 to F#4)*∆ The consummate con man. Naturally animated and bombastic, he is never at a loss for charm and manners. Comedic timing is a must. 

Leo Bloom (Male to play age 30 to 45/Vocal Range A2 to F4) *∆+ An accountant. Boring and mousy, he is a hesitant optimist who longs for something more. Dragged into a scheme by Max and becomes enamored with the beautiful Ulla. The ability to tap dance is a plus!

Franz Liebkind (Male to play age 30 to 45/Vocal Range F2 - G4)∆ German loyalist playwright. His love for the motherland is unmistakable from his lederhosen to his pigeon, Adolph. He is imposing yet tender. Must be able to do a German accent.

Rogers Debris (Male to play age 45 to 60/Vocal Range G#2 - G4) + * New York's most famous and flamboyant stage director. Surrounds himself with deliciously beautiful clothing, people, and possessions. In a crowd, it would be impossible to miss him. Must be comfortable dressing in drag.

Carmen Ghia (Male to play age 25 to 35/Vocal Range C3 - A4) Roger Debris' faithful assistant. He may appear younger than he actually is, thanks to skilled surgeons. Comedic timing is a must for this role.

Ulla (Female to play age 20 to 30/Vocal Range A3 - G5 ) * + A young and hopeful actress. Though her beauty might eclipse her talent, Ulla is passionate about life and art. Quite a clueless seductress in some ways. Must be able to do a Swedish accent and be a strong dancer.

Ensemble                                                                                                            We are looking for strong dancers who tap and character actors to portray Accountants, Roger’s Production Team, Bavarian Peasants, Convicts, New Yorkers, Actors, Audience members, Little Old Ladies, Stormtroopers+, Chorus Girls+, FDR, Stalin+, Churchill+, Police Officers, Usherettes, and more!
