Sixteen-year-old Conor and his schoolmates turn to music to escape troubles at home and impress a mysterious girl. With a score that embraces the new wave sounds of the era, SING STREET celebrates the thrill of first love and the power of music. Based on the indie hit motion picture.

– KEVIN – A cocky, confident show off. A member of the band.
– EAMON – An oddball musical prodigy, hampered by anxiety and a lack of confidence. A member of the band.
– DARREN – Total oddball/nerd. A (very) young, (very) nerdy agent type – on the make, eager to problem solve. Becomes the manager of the band.
MALE COVER 3
Early 20’s. Must sing and be proficient on acoustic guitar and electric guitar. Will cover the following roles and possibly others:
– BRENDAN – Conor’s whip-smart older brother. Full of wit, humor, smarts, passion, rage & irony, but terribly stuck. Stoned much of the time. Dropped out of college and hasn’t left the house in 3 months. Anger and irony cover much of his sadness. Comes completely to life when he’s talking about music. Serves as a surrogate father figure & teacher to his siblings.
– BARRY – A violent school bully, with a complicated home life. A really rough kid, with extreme hurt and pain underneath.
– LARRY – Has been held back a grade (or two) – not the smartest, but sweet and enthusiastic. A member of the band.
OLDER MALE COVER
Late 40’s – 50’s. Must sing, no instruments required. Will cover the following roles:
– ROBERT – Conor’s father. Unhappily married, worn down and financially strapped. Prone to angry outbursts as he loses control of his own household.
– BROTHER BAXTER – The head of an Irish Catholic public school in Dublin. Consumed by maintaining status and control as it slips away. Sharp wit and great charm. Extreme insecurity covered
YOUNG FEMALE COVER
Late Teens to Early 20’s. Must sing and be proficient on guitar and have basic piano skills. Will cover the following roles:
– RAPHINA – An aspiring model with very little to go on. Her exterior is incredibly cool and confident, which masks the complicated, vulnerable, damaged person underneath. She has lived a rough life and tries to cover it – with varying degrees of success. Desperately wants to be older than she is.
– ANNE – Conor’s sister. The ‘brains’ of the family. Stoic and strong. Under immense pressure to succeed. Finally explodes and steps out of the role she’s been forced into.
OLDER FEMALE COVER
Late 40’s to 50’s. Must sing and be proficient on piano. Will cover the following roles:
– PENNY – Conor’s mother. Ironic and funny, she’s trying to keep her family together. She’s frustrated and impatient, and manages through it with wit and sarcasm. She’s having an affair but no one knows, and until her marriage falls apart she’s trying to keep it together.
– SANDRA – Eamon’s supportive mother. Working class. An artist at heart. Funny and tough.
