The Legend of Georgia McBride
(rehearsals being August 5. Show dates Sept 1 - 16)
Casey/Georgia McBride: (Male age 22 - 28: Caucasian)
Casey: a charismatic and good-looking small town high school football star turned Elvis impersonator; a loyal, loving husband who dreams big, if not practically; lived a charmed life until now, and though he's never dumb, he hash't yet had to grow up and take responsibility for his life/family. Doubles as Georgia: a drag queen with Elvis, country, and rock 'n' roll roots, but ultimately a wholly original creation and a force of nature; sexy, flirtatious, and fierce.
Rexy/Jason (Male age 25 - 40: All ethnicities)
Rexy: bitchy in a mean way, but very funny; feisty and sharp-tongued with a dark past; a fairly trashy gal who fancies herself the most sophisticated in the room; thrives on conflict and is a bit of a hot mess, but she has great respect for the history and art of drag. Doubles as Jason: the sweet best friend of Jo and Casey who also happens to be their landlord
Eddie: (Male age 40 - 60: All ethnicities)
The easily flustered, hot-headed owner of a struggling dive bar; a bit rough around the edges; still longing for the dimly remembered glory days of high school; cousin to Tracey.
Stupid Fucking Bird
(rehearsals begin Feb. 17, 2018. Show dates March 16 - 31, 2018)
Doyle Trigorin: (Male age 30 - 50: All ethnicities)
Dashingly handsome, famous author and lover to Emma
Dev: (Male age 20 - 35: All ethnicities)
Down to earth, best friend to Conrad and in love with Mash
Dr. Sorn (Male age 50 - 70: All ethnicities)
Close family friend of Emma and Conrad
