Maltz Jupiter Theatre:

I Hate Hamlet
By Paul Rudnick
Directed by Bill Fennelly
Rehearsals begin on October 6, 2020
Opening is October 29, 2020
Closing is November 8, 2020

Characters: (for a complete character breakdown, please go to www.jupitertheatre.org/auditions)

Felicia Dantine: (late 30’s to 50’s) A tall imposing woman. She is a real estate agent with an almost carnal passion for Manhattan apartments. She speaks with a hoarse buoyant voice and a hint of Queens nasality – a jubilant New York honk. This character has onstage intimacy with the character of John Barrymore which includes being kissed passionately on the back of her neck.

Andrew Rally: (late 20’s to 30’s) An actor in his late twenties or early thirties. He is handsome and charming. He possesses the polished easy air of a television star. Andrew could easily glide through life wafting on a cloud of good looks and affability. He is more than accustomed to being the center of attention. He possesses a potent charm. Yet, under this charming exterior beats a tender and sincere heart. Actor must be able to move well; we are seeking an actor with stage combat experience, a current SPT in single sword or smallsword with the SAFD is a plus. This character has onstage intimacy with the character of Deirdre McDavey which includes several moments of passionate kissing and physicality.

Deirdre McDavey: (late 20’s but looks much younger) She is twenty-nine years old but looks much younger. She is Andrew’s girlfriend. She is a bohemian Valley Girl imagining herself as a Bronte heroine. Deirdre must be played with a delicious comic fervor. She is a wild romantic but never a ninny. She is always on the verge of a swoon; and while she enjoys being swept away by tidal wave of emotion every few seconds she is delightfully resilient. To her life is a miracle a minute. She is a beacon of breathless wonder with a soul full of romantic enthusiasm. Actor must be able to move well; experience with contact improv or unarmed stage combat a plus. This character has onstage intimacy with the character of Andrew Rally which includes several moments of passionate kissing and physicality as well as moments of intimacy with John Barrymore which includes light facial stroking and being kissed on the neck.

Lillian Troy: (70’s) A striking silver-haired woman in her seventies. A picture of elegance who smokes unfiltered Camel cigarettes. She speaks with a regal German accent. She has a no-nonsense manner combined with a wicked sense of humor – she delights at any sort of hijinks. She is Andrew’s agent. Her tough exterior is a cover for deep romantic passions. Actor must be able to move well, ballroom dance experience a plus. The actor will have a romantic and intimate ballroom dance with the character of John Barrymore.

John Barrymore: (50’s to 60) He is phenomenally sexual and dashing, the very image of a sly romantic hero. He possesses a witty and rakish charm combined with a wicked bounding glee, and not an ounce of pedantry. Actor must be able to move well; we are seeking an actor with stage combat experience, a current SPT in single sword or smallsword with the SAFD is a plus. This character has onstage intimacy with several characters: Deirdre McDavey which includes some sensual facial stroking and neck kissing; a romantic ballroom dance with the character of Lillian Troy; and passionate neck kissing with Felicia Dantine.

Gary Peter Lefkowitz: (30’s to early 40’s) He personifies L.A. “shaggy-chic.” A happy overgrown child, an oddly appealing creature of pure appetite. Reality is of very little consequence to him; the deal is
all. He is crass and calculating, he is never stupid. He possesses a shameless exuberance. He loves his life. He is at once appalling and irresistible. He is unafraid to speak our dirty secrets about the often too present tedium of high art.

Rehearsals begin on December 22, 2020
Opening is January 14, 2021
Closing is January 31, 2021

Characters: (for a complete character breakdown, please go to www.jupitertheatre.org/auditions)

Lawrence Jameson: (late 40’s-50) The French Riviera’s classiest con man…elegant, erudite, stylish, British, and hugely successful. Able to charm the jewelry (not to mention the gowns) off of the world’s wealthiest women by “giving them what they want”. Seeking an incredibly charismatic leading man who has it all: classic good looks, gorgeous voice, graceful dance skills, and the acting and comic chops to go from impeccably suave to outrageously silly and keep us charmed the entire time. Tenor; vocal range: G2-Bb4

Freddy Benson: (early 30’s) the attractive American interloper who crashes Jameson’s heretofore private party. Nakedly ambitious, aggressively loud, hilariously crude, small time con man who relies on street smarts and sob stories to make his pitch. Seeking a fearlessly funny young leading man who can pull out all the stops: sing a power ballad, rap like a white boy, pull off outrageous characters and physical comedy…and still endear himself to us. Tenor; vocal range: A2-B4

Andre Thibault: (40’s) wry, sophisticated, opinionated, “oh-so French” chief of police. Andre is Lawrence’s right hand man and voice of reason…practical and unflappable until love unexpectedly comes his way. Seeking a comic singing actor with flair and panache, who is also a surprisingly tender song and dance man. Baritenor; vocal range: F2-F4

Muriel Eubanks: (early 40’s) an extremely wealthy, attractive American …quirky, funny, gullible, and utterly sincere as she willingly succumbs to the thrilling charm of Jameson and later to a surprising and touching romance with Andre. Seeking a glamorous comic leading lady with amazing vocal stylings who dances with style and grace. Alto; vocal range: E3-C5

Christine Colgate: (late 20’s-early 30’s) “The American Soap Queen” – the clumsily exuberant, ingratiatingly excited, seemingly innocent heiress from Ohio who becomes the intended victim of Jameson and Freddy’s con. Christine is, however, far more than she seems…as she surprises the guys (and the audience) by revealing herself to be the legendary con “man” – The Jackel. Seeking a compelling comic actress with amazing vocal chops…able to convince us she’s an innocent broad falling hard for a guy in a wheelchair and then able to provide a totally delightful shock as she reveals she’s been turning the wheels all along! Mezzo-Soprano; vocal range: A3-F#5

Jolene Oakes: (early 30’s) “The Princess of Petroleum” – the luridly wealthy, frequently married, deliciously vulgar Oklahoma oil heiress. Seeking a true triple threat comic actress – an amazing dancer who belts out a song with guts and gusto and has the comic chops to make Jolene as funny as she is obnoxious. Mezzo-Alto; vocal range: A3-D5

Male and female ensemble (25-35) sexy, stylish, triple threat dancer/singer/actors to bring the upscale heat to the Riviera, and the hillbilly funny to Oklahoma. Excellent dancers who sing very well to play the gorgeous socialites, the haughty hotel managers, the naughty French maids, the scheming hotel staff, the hot disco dancers, the bikini clad beach-goers, the Greek magnates, etc. who make the world of the Riviera irresistibly fun, and undeniably hot!
