Mrs. Paroo Age 50-60 (Mezzo Soprano: A flat to E flat) Widowed, Irish mother to Marian and Winthrop. Sweet homemaker who wants the best for everyone. Gives Marian a lot of advice about finding a man. Sings: “Piano Lesson,”and most of the chorus numbers

Sings: “Pick-a-Little,” “It’s You,” and all chorus numbers.
Winthrop Paroo Age 8 (Alto, C – E Flat) Marian’s little brother, cute as a button. Does not talk much because of a lisp and missing his dead father. Learns to trust again and is a chatterbox by the end of the show. Sings: “The Wells Fargo Wagon,” and “Gary, Indiana,” plus some chorus numbers.
Amaryllis Age 8 (Alto, C to E) She is the young piano student of Marian’s, and likes Winthrop, but doesn’t understand why he won’t talk to her. The actress does not necessarily have to know how to play the piano. Sings: “Piano Lesson,” and in chorus numbers.
Charlie Cowell Age 30-50 A rival traveling anvil salesman. First seen on train at the start of the show. He returns to town to warn them about Harold and hopefully, make himself a hero and thus earn sales himself. Sings in “Rock Island.”

Tribe Description: We are looking for a company of 16-20 individuals of many cultures representing the wide array of people who participated in the “Hippie” movement of the 1960’s. More specifically we are looking for dedicated actors who will commit to doing justice to a true group of people who lived an extremely poor lifestyle in harsh conditions. The Tribe represents one of the most concentrated countercultures of American society. All actors will be on stage for the majority of the show and will be highly integrated into each sequence. In some instances, roles were created for actors of a specific ethnicity. In these cases, it is noted in the character description. Note that, as with the original production, some nudity will be a part of these performances. This will be handled respectfully and tastefully to both the actors and audiences. There is no nudity required at the audition. We will be seeking actors 18 and older for the tribe.
Sheila Franklin: She is a wild and dynamic activist and early feminist leader in the Tribe. A student at NYU. Her passion lies in involvement, be it causes or people. Sheila is in love with Berger, who does not return her feelings. Although she is fierce in her views about politics and societal issues, she is easily manipulated by her attraction for Berger.
George Berger: He is bright, funny, loud, wild and playful, but one of the most conflicted members of the tribe underneath. Charismatic and entertaining, he loves to make people laugh. He is a good friend of Claude's and a free spirit. Berger is a bit of a showman, corralling the others to do what he wants. He likes to lead the Tribe in various anti-establishment pursuits such as protests, drug use and going against the expectation of society during this era.
Claude Bukowski: He is gentle, the embodiment of the flower power ethos. A harmonious, ordered, balanced character, artistic, blissed-out, kind and funny. He is born under the defiant sign of Aquarius and is concerned about the war and the state of the human condition. Tolerant and open he loves everyone in the Tribe and provides them with an emotional center.
Neil “Woof” Donovan: He is sexy, good looking, masculine but with an androgynous quality. A free-love nature freak granola boy. He is truly in love with Jim Morrison of “The Doors”. He is very much in his own world, the embodiment of a canine if he were to be a man.
Hud: He has an energetic personality, jumping at the opportunity to introduce himself. He is both intellectual and street hip. He scans the New York Times and the East Village. At times, he is like a wise overseer. African-American.
Jeanie: She wears long hippie dresses and is the earth mother of the group both figuratively and literally as she is pregnant. Dry sense of humor, hippie freak granola woman. Obsessed with Claude.
Dionne: She is warm and compassionate. A strong presence with a present sense of justice and irony. African-American woman.
Crissy: She is the youngest tribe member. She is pretty, innocent and vulnerable. Loves the idea of the Tribe, her new chosen family.
Father/Margaret Mead: Young character actor to play an authoritarian father AND a befuddled female tourist who stumbles upon the tribe and is fascinated by their culture. Must be comfortable in drag.
THE TRIBE (All Ethnicities/various vocal ranges): This is not a typical musical chorus, as the entire cast is a true ensemble. Tribe members sing lead in many featured songs including “Aquarius”, “Black Boys”, “White Boys”, “Walking in Space”, “Electric Blues”, etc., and play many roles in the show including the principals, parents, historical figures, and more. Energetic, creative performers with heart and passion.
