The Producers
CHARACTER BREAKDOWN

Max Bialystock
Vocal Range – Bari-Tenor
You must “blow us away” at auditions.  Max is an over-the-top, high-energy, Professor Harold Hill/Tevye-type.  Once known as the King of Broadway, he’s become a producer of broadway flops.  He raises money for his shows by romancing wealthy little old ladies.  Should appear to be late 40’s/early 50’s…..stocky, but has to be able to move around a lot.  Always has an answer, always has a plan.  A quick-talker, but you don’t miss a word he says…Perhaps one of the best roles ever written for a comic lead.

Leopold Bloom
Vocal Range – Bari-Tenor
A lovable nerd that can sing, dance and act.  He is a meek (and wimpy at times,) law-abiding and courteous accountant….believes he should do everything by the book.  Has always dreamed of being a broadway producer.  An absolute contrast to Max, character-wise and physically.  Should appear to be in his 30’s, tallish, slender, neat and clean.

Franz Liebkind
Vocal Range - Baritone
Yikes!  Franz is a German nazi who now resides in New York and has written the play, “Springtime for Hitler” a tribute to his hero. This is the play that Max hopes to produce that will be a sure-fire flop.  When we first meet Franz, he is seen wearing lederhosen, army boots and an army helmet while singing to his collection of singing carrier pigeons.  He is a nut!  Franz must be able to do a German accent that we can understand clearly.  Can appear to be in his 30’s-40’s.

Roger DeBris
Vocal Range - Tenor
The over-the-top flamboyant director that Max has chosen to direct Springtime for Hitler (he’s looking for the worst director to create the biggest flop.) When we first meet Roger, he is wearing a silverish gown that he’ll be wearing to a costume ball (he’s going as the Grand Duchess, Anastasia).  He at first declines to direct the show because it’s too serious, but eventually agrees, providing they can “Keep It Gay” (he wants to rewrite the play so that Hitler wins and it has a happy ending…!)  Roger should appear to be late 30’s/early 40’s.  Must show over-the-top stereotypical flamboyant director traits.

Carmen Ghia
Vocal Range – Second Tenor
This is Roger’s common-law assistant….and is as flamboyant as Roger… Together, he and Roger make for an hysterical couple, arguing cattily yet exchanging winks from time to time.  Carmen should appear to be about the same age as Roger, perhaps a bit smaller in stature than Roger.

Ulla
Vocal Range – Second Soprano
A knock-out, sexy, tall blonde Swedish woman.  (we can work on the blonde…might have to make concessions for the tall…but MUST be sexy) Must be able to read with a stereotypical Swedish accent…She comes to audition for the show, Max & Leo hire her as a receptionist/secretary, though her limited English allows her to say little more than “Bialystock and Bloom..”  Her song, “When You Got It, Flaunt It’ characterizes her quite nicely!

Supporting Characters:

The Usherettes
2 girls open the show and Act 2-3 with the song titled “Opening Night”

Hold Me Touch Me
one of the many old ladies who help finance Max’s creations.  She has a very funny scene with him in his office.  She needs to be able to look and sound as if she’s 75-80 years old…great character part.

Mr. Marks
Leopold Bloom’s grouchy, condescending boss at the accounting firm. 

Roger DeBris’s Team
Bryan the set designer (Tenor), Kevin the costume designer (bari-tenor), Scott the choreographer (MUST BE ABLE TO DANCE), all as flamboyant as Roger and Carmen…have solo lines in song “Keep it Gay,” along with Shirley Markowitz, the lighting designer….a very “butch” woman who also likes to keep it gay….(Alto)

Hitler Auditioners
Jack Lapidus – auditions with “A Wandering Minstrel I” (Tenor) Donald Dinsmore – auditions with “The Little Wooden Boy” (but never gets to actually sing…)

Jason Green
auditions with “Have You Ever Heard the German Band”

The Storm Trooper/Tenor
Sings “Springtime for Hitler” theme song – awesome opportunity for a strong tenor

The Police Sergeant
Three Patrolmen

The Guard in the Prison

Judge in the Courtroom
Foreman of the Jury

The Prison Trustee
