By Abby Mann / Directed by Jim Black
Nuremberg 1946 - Four German judges who served on the bench during the Nazi regime face charges of crimes against humanity. Three American Judges are asked to try their counterparts, prosecuted by a zealous and idealistic US Captain and defended by a brilliant young German defense lawyer. The testimony in the courtroom, as well as actions outside the courtroom, challenge everyone's ideas of justice.
Colonel Tad Parker - Hard Hitting politically astute and ambitious prosecutor - All American hero - 30s
General Matthew Merrin - Vigorous intelligent and personable - a natural leader - 50s
Judge Dan Haywood - North Carolina judge - a self made man who has earned his status the hard way - 50s
Captain Byers - African American West Point graduate - late 20s
Judge Curtis Ives - a conservative American judge 60s
Judge Norris - soft spoken New Englander in his late 40s - a law professor from Maine before going on the bench
Emil Hahn - Nazi prosecutor and Judge - still believes in the Nazi cause - unrepentent
Frederick Hofstedder - German judge - mid forties - neat and fastidious - a smaller man than Hahn
Werner Lammpe - German judge - 80s - time and stress have taken a physical emotional and psychological toll - he is not fully aware of what is going on or why
Ernst Janning - a tall proud man in his early 60s - former judge, legal scholar and Minister of Justice in the Weimer Republic and Nazi Germany. am avowed anti-Nazi in the early 30s, in the end he served in the Nazi government and courts - no one can judge him more than he judges himself
Oscar Rolfe - about 30 - a brilliant young lawyer whose studies and practice of law were derailed by the war - he sees the Court as a bunch of hypocrites who sit in judgement only because they won the war - Janning was his idol
Dr. Karl Wickert - distinguished -in his 70s' - Justice Minister under the Weimer Republic until 1935 when his clashes with Hitler forced him out -he was succeeded by Janning who he sees as a traitor to the German Justice System.

Frau Margarete Bertholt - aristocratic German lady about 50 - her husband was a General a- loyal soldier who hated the Nazis but did his duty to his country. She is a proud woman of the old German nobility. She still cannot believe how Nazism could happen in the Germany she knew and grew up in
Rudolf Peterson - emotionally fragile man about 30 - he holds himself together with noticeable difficulty
Dr. Geuter - mild mannered lawyer in his 50s - served as a defense lawyer during the Nazi era
Maria Wallner -former beauty, now in her 30s. Time & war have taken their toll. She has clearly suffered personal trauma and loss

Questions - email or call the director at email@example.com or (631)882-6065
Man #1 (Jewish Chorus / Gabe / Youtube / Edgy British Guy) - 25-40 look; Male, any ethnicity. GABE is the mega dude/womanizer. Has every answer to every question about women that has ever been asked. And probably has a catch phrase to go with that answer. Aaron's best friend since childhood. EDGY ROCKER/BRITISH GUY are bad boys from Casey's past. Cocky and neglectful, they are overcompensating. Baritenor range.
Woman #1 (Grandma Ida / Lauren / Facebook / Female with Megaphone #2 / Aaron’s Mother) - 25-40 look, Female, belt/mix with soprano. Casey's sister, LAUREN is happily (somewhat) married to her highly successful husband, Kevin, and wonders out loud why Casey can't break her bad habits and learn how to catch a winner. Constantly trying to fix Casey, Lauren is more concerned with listening to her own advice than actually helping her sister. GRANDMA IDA is Aaron's dead grandmother, who feels strongly that her son should marry a Jewish woman.
Man #2 (Reggie / Aaron’s Future Son / Instagram / Edgy Rocker Guy) - Late 20s-30s look. Male, tenor. REGGIE is Casey's fabulously fierce gay and over-imaginative best friend. Easily sent into a tailspin of jealousy, paranoia, and drama. EDGY ROCKER/BRITISH GUY are bad boys from Casey's past. Cocky and neglectful, they are overcompensating.
Woman #2 (Jewish Chorus / Allison / Google Girl / Female with Megaphone #1) - 25-35 look, female. Aaron's ex-fiancé. Gorgeous, sexy, uptight, conservative, controlling, manipulative. Must have great belt and some soprano.
Man #3 (Waiter / Casey’s Christian Father / Blaze/ Twitter / Friendly Therapist) - 35-60 look, male, baritenor. A career waiter, who dabbles with songwriting and performing on the side. A romantic. He wants nothing more than for love to blossom in his restaurant. A closet poet as well. CASEY's CHRISTIAN FATHER is a stereotype super-Christian, praising the Easter Bunny and denouncing Judaism.
Aaron - late 20s-30s look. Male. Tenor. New Yorker. Jewish investment banker. He has never been on a blind date before. Out of his element, nervous, and trying way too hard.
Casey - Late 20s-30s look, female. Great belt/mix voice. Daring, bold, and delightfully controversial. All as a defense mechanism.

KING ARTHUR (Baritone [Low G2 -- High F4]). The King of England, who sets out on a quest to form the Knights of the Round Table and find the Holy Grail. Great humor. Good singer.
SIR ROBIN (Tenor/Baritone [Low D3 -- High G4], ). A Knight of the Round Table. Ironically called "Sir Robin the Brave," though he couldn't be more cowardly. Joins the Knights for the singing and dancing. Also plays GUARD 1 and BROTHER MAYNARD, a long-winded monk. A good mover.
SIR LANCELOT (Tenor/Baritone [Low C3 -- High E4]). Knight of the Round Table. Fearless to a bloody fault but through a twist of fate discovers his "softer side." This actor MUST be great with character voices and accents, as he also plays THE FRENCH TAUNTER, an arrogant, condescending, over-the-top Frenchman; the KNIGHT OF NI, an absurd, cartoonish leader of a peculiar group of Knights; and TIM THE ENCHANTER, a ghostly being w/Scottish accent.
PATSY (Tenor/Baritone [Low Bb3 -- High G5]). King Arthur's horse and servant. Under-appreciated but always longing for Arthur's approval. Good, funny, physical mover with some tap dancing. Also plays MAYOR, a jolly red-faced man who advertises the merits of his hometown; and the drunken, useless GUARD 2. Very good mover. Tap skills a bonus.
SIR GALAHAD (Tenor [Low Bb3 -- High Bb5]). A Knight of the Round Table. Begins as Dennis, a lower class "mud gatherer" who becomes knighted and transforms into the dashing Sir Galahad. Also plays PRINCE HERBERT'S FATHER, a wealthy, brutish Yorkshireman at odds with his sensitive son; and THE BLACK KNIGHT, who is always ready to duel despite multiple injuries. Strong bari-tenor singing required.
SIR BEDEVERE (Tenor/Baritone with falsetto [Low D3 -- High G4]). A Knight of the Round Table. An inept scholar. Also plays DENNIS GALAHAD'S MOTHER, a shrill peasant woman; and CONCORDE, Sir Lancelot's horse.
HISTORIAN/NOT DEAD FRED/ PRINCE HERBERT/ MINSTREL/ FRENCH GUARD (Tenor [Low A2 – High A5]). A tweedy academic. Also plays NOT DEAD FRED, a sickly little fellow who -- despite others' beliefs -- claims he is "not yet dead"; a FRENCH GUARD, the condemnatory sidekick to the French Taunter; a MINSTREL in Sir Robin's band; and PRINCE HERBERT, the hopeful and frilly prince who loves to sing and pines for his love atop a tower. Tenor singing required. Very good mover.
EVERY "Ensemble" member plays at least SIX roles. The busiest principal player plays only FIVE roles.
MALE ENSEMBLE (6 men). Seeking strong dancers and singers to play many roles including the other Knights of the Round Table, Sir Not Appearing, Sir Bohrs, Bodies in "Not Yet Dead," the Dancing Monk, the Dancing Nun, French Citizens, Finland Citizens, a French Guard, Robin's Minstrel, and more! Strong dance skills preferred; tap skills a bonus.
FEMALE ENSEMBLE (6 women). Seeking strong dancers and singers to play many roles including the Camelot Girls, the Laker Girls, a French Guard, Knights of Ni, two of Robin's Minstrels, French Citizens, Finland Citizens, and more! Strong dance skills preferred, tap skills a bonus.
