Join us for the auditions for the Texas Premiere of SUDS: The Rocking 60’s Musical Soap Opera
• Mr. Postman: A bouncy, energetic, slightly mysterious postman.
• Washer Repairman: A big lug. Probably wears work coverall & tool belt, carries toolbox etc.
• Mrs. Halo: A sweet middle-aged lady with a midwestern accent (she's from Minnesota). She can be dressed in bathrobe, slippers and curlers.
• Mr. Right: A dashing, debonair, good-natured man. A cross between Ward Cleaver and a matinee idol. Right out of a Sears Catalogue or an arrow ad come to life. Although very strong and confident, he should not be lecherous or leering; he's very polite to women and very charming.
• Milt Dudman: A nerd. Loud, obnoxious, inappropriate and unappealing.
• Johnny Angel: Earnest young man. Tries to be cool but is really just a regular guy.
Sings sweet solo up to G (can be falsetto). Must belt strong F. Falsetto backups to B flat. Bass to A below middle C. In "Mr. Postman" should be comfortable with a strong pop sound to G flat.
SUDS (Book by Steve Gunderson, Melinda Gilb, and Bryan Scott; Musical Arrangement by Steve Gunderson) takes you back to the early 1960s to tell the story of Cindy, a lovelorn young woman who works in a laundromat, and the guardian angels that teach her how to find true love and survive in this wash, rinse, and spit-em-out world. SUDS is loaded with good clean fun, bubbling energy, and over 40 songs that topped the charts, including "Mr. Postman," “Where the Boys Are,” “These Boots Are Made for Walkin’,” “Respect,” and “Do You Want to Know a Secret.”
