Please bring a copy of your headshot and resume to the theatre on the day of your audition. Please prepare a brief contemporary musical theatre pop song. If you play an instrument in which you can accompany yourself please do so—all musicians welcome. If you play an instrument that does not allow you to accompany yourself, or you do not feel comfortable accompanying yourself while playing please sing first and then provide a small example of yourself playing your instrument. All instrument ability is very helpful, but not necessary for auditions or casting.


Josh Cohen: Male, 20-40s, bari-tenor; an empathetic, kind, and lovable mess; is broke and perpetually single, but a good person who does the right thing at any cost; he gets robbed, rejected, and is faced with an enormous moral dilemma which tests the limits of his goodwill; strong baritone/tenor with great comic timing; any and all instrument ability is very helpful, but not necessary. Any Ethnicity.

Narrator Josh (Swing Information Only): Male, 20-40s, tenor; engaging, and charming in a geeky cool way; he never leaves the stage, telling the story of what happened to him a year ago as it gets played out by another character; part troubadour, part stand-up comic, has a strong tenor voice, and an ease talking to an audience; while it would be nice for Narrator Josh and Josh to have a physical resemblance, it is not necessary; their comedic rapport is far more important. Good rhythm guitar skills required; other instrument ability a plus but not required. Any Ethnicity.

Woman 1: Female, 20-40s, a comic tour de force: someone great with varied characterizations, who can also be real; strong singing voice required, and musical instrument ability helpful but not required. Any Ethnicity.

Woman 2: Female, 20-40s, a rockstar role; a strong singer (comfortable with rock); many comic characters with numerous featured vocals; instrument ability a major plus but not required. Any Ethnicity.

Man 1: Male, 30-50s, hilarious; roles include a gruff landlord, Josh’s curmudgeonly father and a disgruntled middle manager; musical instrument ability a major plus but not required. Any Ethnicity.
