Casting Note

All roles call for legit singing. All women’s roles call for chest voice, head voice, and a smooth mix between the two. All of the characters in this show age considerably while onstage. The ideal age of the performers should be 30s. Zelda and Louie may be slightly older (later 30s or 40s). Miriam may be in her 20s.

Author of the memoir Goldstein. Confident and smart— but with a large chip on his shoulder. Tenor to A (with optional highest note F#).

(played by same actor as Louis) – Simple, eager, and enthusiastic. Every bit the teenager, eager to begin life.

The Man on the Boat
(played by the same actor as Louis) – A young Russian immigrant. Adventurous and optimistic. A young man in love.

Louis' grandmother— a strong-willed matriarch of the family. Strong chest voice, but mix up to F.

Louis’ father. He is a doctor— stern, and conservative as a man. Fun loving and carefree as a boy. Tenor/Baritone to F#.

Nathan’s wife. Strong-willed and funny. With sensibilities that are more modern than her husband's, strong belt for solos; mix and high head voice for some ensemble singing.

Louis’ grandfather. Possesses a strong veneer that crumbles under pressure and scrutiny. Baritone to F.

Louis’ sister. The peacekeeper in the family. Sweet and caring. Bright, youthful chest voice, but also a rich high head voice for ensemble singing.

Louis’s aunt and sister to Nathan. Loyal to a fault. She weathers life’s disappointments. She effortlessly switches between Old Sherri and Young Sherri. Strong, rich chest voice, but also possessing a strong head voice to A.

2 Piano/Conductor Scores

A keyboard score that is a key part of the show’s actual orchestration. This score contains both vocal parts and a cue staff, which guides the conductor through the full orchestration by informing them when instruments enter the song, as well as providing specific part lines when necessary.
