TRACK #1 (Female Presenting) Helene Huber. 60. An elegant, wealthy widow with a lethal sense of humor. Behind the immaculate facade and the withering quips hides a working-class girl who wanted to be a champion ice-skater. Experienced physical comic. [BELTER/MEZZO]

TRACK #2 (Female Presenting) Charlotte St. Clair. 35. A tall, harried private nurse with a severe case of Intermittent Explosive Disorder. Plagued by financial problems, she stifled her dream of becoming an opera singer. Far more resourceful than she lets on. [CLASSICAL OPERATIC SOPRANO]

TRACK #3 (Male Presenting) to play all of the following roles: Schroeder Studebaker: 80. A
grotesque, vengeful lawyer. A light, pervy German accent. Greed and thirst for revenge keep him surprisingly wiry and agile. - Persimmon De Vol: 50. A stylist. An arbitrator. Minimalist. Swellegant. A vaguely continental and entirely made-up accent. - Misha: 40. A sweetly sentimental and soulful singer-songwriter from Carpathia. A thick Slavic accent. And a big, bipolar heart. - Grisha: 40. Misha’s satanic, identical twin. Sleazy, sweaty, and stupid - but certain that all women find him irresistible. - Helene II: A hand puppet. A baby piranha. Bears a resemblance to Helene Huber. - Miss Mitzi: 18. A hand puppet. A zaftig blonde in a dirndl. - Officer Helmut Huber: 25. A hand puppet. A Waffen-SS Officer. - Pope Pius XII: 67. A hand puppet. - Miss Mitzi: 95. A ginormous and frightening puppet, embedded in a wheelchair. Dressed in a ragged dirndl, with cankles that pool over the edges of her flat shoes. A wheezing sound, behind an oxygen mask spattered with drool. [MUSICAL THEATRE

TRACK #4 (Male Presenting) body double. All ethnicities, ages and genders considered. [NON-SINGING]
