The Little Dog Laughed

By Douglas Carter Beane

June 20th – July 7th

Director Ben Berry

Diane (30-40) –cast- seeking possible understudy-
Agent. Acerbic, cynical, driven, and very, VERY Hollywood. The only person more important than her client Mitchell is herself.

She doesn’t suffer fools gladly, though also knows when she needs them.

Mitchell (25-35)

Hollywood star on the rise. Closeted homosexual torn between what he truly wants and what

other people want from him. Be aware that this character requires nudity on stage.

Alex (20-25)

NYC rent boy. Alex is very naïve for someone who has experienced so much. He is jaded, yet

remarkably idealistic. Love interest for Mitchell. He is also boyfriend/best friend/only friend to

Ellen. Be aware that this character requires nudity on stage. (possibly seeking actor to double

this role with the character ETHAN in The Full Monty)

Ellen (20-25)

NYC party girl. Ellen has made a living being kept by much older men, while still sleeping with

Alex. Tough yet innocent, and just damaged enough to make her interesting.

*IMPORTANT* Both male characters are required to be completely nude for a brief period on

stage. The playwright does not allow this to be cut. Please do not consider auditioning for these

roles if you have any problem with this. No nudity is involved for the female characters.

Callbacks for all roles will be cold readings from the script.

The Full Monty

Book by Terrence McNally

Music and Lyrics by David Yazbek

July 18 – August 18

Director/Chorographer Terry Norgeot

Jerry Lukowski* – (30-40) Vocal range: Rock Tenor B2-Db5. An unemployed mill worker.Very

strong singing across genres, including a controlled and pretty falsetto, is required. Jerry is a

complex emotional character with serious heart and charisma, and genuine tenderness for his son.

His story is central to the show.

Dave Bukatinsky* – (30-40) Vocal range: Lyric Tenor with strong falsetto. B2-Db5. An

unemployed mill worker. Jerry’s best friend, he is often swept along in Jerry’s plans unwittingly.

He struggles with unemployment and its effect on his marriage. A lovable, good-natured soul

with body weight and self-esteem issues. Body type: overweight relative to the other Monty Men-
it is a key component of the character. Strong singer required.

Malcom MacGregor* – (25-40) Vocal range: High Tenor. Smooth falsetto. C#3-E5. An

unemployed mill worker. Shy. Tries to hide that he is gay. “I’m a complete loser that lives at

home with his mother.”… His frank self-assessment neglects to mention his sweetness and

sincerity. Beautiful voice required. On the thin side.

Noah “Horse” T. Simmons* – (45+) Vocal range: Baritone/Tenor. D3-Bb5. A retired African-
American mill worker: Sing and dances the funky show-stopping “Big Black Man.” Excellent

mover with great deadpan comedy.

Harold Nichols* – (35-50) Vocal range: High Baritone/Tenor. F2-Bb4. An unemployed mill

supervisor. Harold’s doting on his wife extends to covering up his unemployment. Must be able

to move well, as he becomes the dance teacher for the guys.

Ethan Girard* – (20-30) Vocal range: High Baritone/Tenor. F2-Bb5. An unemployed mill

worker. Ethan remains an optimist while struggling with unemployment, his sexuality and lack of

friends. Discovers true friendship when he joins the guys in their quest. (possibly seeking actor to

double this role with the character ALEX in Little Dog Laughed)

Buddy “Keno” Walsh* – (20 – 40) Handsome and experienced gay male stripper. His show

opening Chippendale-esque performance for the Buffalo ladies bookends the beginning of the

show with the final “Let it Go”. Sings last song.

Pam Lukowski – (25-35) Vocal range: Alto G3-A5. Jerry’s estranged ex-wife. She earnestly

wants Jerry to be an active parent for Nathan, but wrestles with her reservations about his

character. Powerfully connected performer required.

Georgie Bukantinsky – (30-40) Vocal range: High Alto/broad Mezzo belter. F3-A5. Dave’s

wife. A warm, down-to-earth soul that isn’t afraid to kick up her heels. Her exuberance opens the

show and sets the pace and mood perfectly. Powerful songs showcase her singing.

Teddy Slaughter – (30-40) Fiancé to Pam. The opposite of Jerry: clean-cut, well off. Typical

high executive type and somewhat arrogant. He will sing the last song with the cast.

Estelle Genovese – (20-35) Jerry’s girlfriend. Her character is the opposite of Pam. Young,

slightly naive but strong in her will.

Male and Female ensemble – (20-45) May double from leads. Playing different characters from

the town and will sing in certain numbers.

Note for The Full Monty Men and Keno: If you are auditioning for these roles, you will need to

be comfortable enough with your body type to perform on stage in your underwear, a G-string

and a last-second scene where you will be fully nude. Please wear comfortable clothing during

auditions that reveal your overall body shape accurately. There will be NO nudity at these auditions.
