Equity actor/singers for various roles
Male, 40’s. Caucasian. Heavy set, blusterous, a dreamer, full of himself in the best way. A schemer. (Reference YouTube clips of Jackie Gleason’s performance in the television show episodes “The $99,000 Answer” and “The Golfer”). Actors should find a balance between their own interpretation of the character and the character we know from the television series. Must have an excellent baritone voice and have fantastic comedic timing. PRINCIPAL.
Female, mid-30s-late 40s. Caucasian. Caustic, sarcastic, yet very funny in her retorts to Ralph. A loving and caring wife underneath the veneer of her jabs at Ralph. (Reference YouTube clips of Audrey Meadows’ performance in the television show). Actors should find a balance between their own interpretation of the character and the character we know from the television series. Must be able to deliver zingers with effortlessly well-placed comedic timing. Must have a fantastic voice with a high belt. PRINCIPAL.
Male, 40s. Caucasian. Tall, lanky, comedic, a little dumb, sweet and true blue. Working class, physical. (Reference YouTube clips of Art Carney’s performance in the television show- . “The $99,000 Answer” and “The Golfer” are two of the best).

Must have a strong baritone voice and have excellent physical and comedic timing. PRINCIPAL.
Female, mid 30s-early 40s. Caucasian. Not like Trixie in the television series. Sexy and beautiful... like Adelaide in “Guys and Dolls”... a background as a singer, takes a job singing at El Morocco.

Male, 40’s-50’s. Any ethnicity. A shark in an Ad Agency. Leading Man type (Jon Hamm in Mad Men). Must be very funny, even though he’s harassed and panicked by Upshaw in their first scene together, he’s a shark that’s being out-sharked. Manipulates Norton, always three steps ahead. Must have a great baritone singing voice and have great comedic timing. PRINCIPAL.
[OLD MAN FACCIAMATTA]
