Character info:

GALILEO - (Male, 20’s-early 30’s)

Is a wide-eyed misfit who hears strange song lyrics in his head. Reticent to be just another lemming to the man, an inspired Galileo breaks free of his civilian existence and goes on an adventure to find a world that’s free of mind. He’s attractive, young, sexy and rebellious; passionate, vulnerable, yet headstrong and often stubborn. But above all else, slays dragons with his power to rock! Must have comedic skills and be a solid dancer.
Vocal Range: Rock Tenor with strong Falsetto – (D Below Middle C to Bb above Middle C – Full Voice) (To E two above Middle C- Falsetto)

SCARAMOUCHE - (Female, 20’s-early 30’s)
Another outcast, looking for a way out, later becomes Galileo’s love interest. She’s the hard and ballsy ying to Galileo’s sensitive and curious yang. She’s a sarcastic, goth loner who can’t see the beauty and strength she has within. Often defensive and typically down on herself, this introvert must bust out of her shell and be the rock rebel she was born to be. Comic skills required, a capable dancer and must be comfortable handling a guitar (does not need to know how to play).
Vocal Range: Strong Rock Belt (E below Middle C to E two above Middle C)

KILLER QUEEN (Female, Late 20’s-early 40’s)
She’s the ruthless overlord in charge of Global Soft, the worldwide corporation which is responsible for the suppression of all live music. She lusts for more power and will stop at nothing to completely eviscerate any lingering shreds of original thought and creativity. She’s sassy, voluptuous, funny and powerful. She’s the boss. We are looking for a showstopping diva with a soul/rock voice. Must have comic chops and be a decent mover.
Vocal Range: Full Rock/Soul Voice (E Below Middle C to E Two Above Middle C)

KHASHOGGI (Male, late 20’s-early 40’s)
He’s Killer Queen’s top henchman, who gleefully carries out his duties of crushing the Bohemian resistance. He’s passionately compliant and almost as maniacal as his boss. He’s sinister, heartless, cruel yet suave. He’s also kind of a dick. Actor must have comic skills and be a solid mover.
Vocal Range: High Rock Baritone with Strong Falsetto (D Below Middle C to A above Middle C – Full Voice) (E to two above middle C- Falsetto)

BUDDY/Pop (Male, 30’s-40’s)
Buddy is the leader of the Bohemians. Although this hippy seems like a rock and roll burn out, he’s actually a rock historian and the link to the lost sacred artifacts of rock and roll. He’s passionate for music and the cause. When Galileo arrives, revered texts become powerful clues for his quest. We need a strong comic performer, who’s a capable mover.
Vocal Range: Baritone with some rock skills (E Below Middle C to E Above Middle C)

BRITNEY (Male, 20’s-30’s)
Along with his girlfriend Oz, Brit is determined to discover the secrets of live music and find the chosen one who will show the Bohemians the way. Brit is strong, sexy and has an abundance of wild energy. His lovable vibrance is only matched by the love he has for Oz and his desire to free the Bohemians. He is streetwise and over the top. Must be a solid dancer and have comedic chops.
Vocal Range: Full Rock Voice (D Below middle C to B above Middle C)

OZ (Female, 20’s-30’s)
She’s Brit’s babe. A total rock chick, who’s streetwise, sexy and cool. She’s a fireball, hellbent on liberating the Bohemians and is completely sexually super charged by her man Brit. She’s wild, tough and ultra aggressive. Must have comic skills and be solid dancer.
Vocal Range: Strong Rock Belt (A below middle C to E above Middle C)

ENSEMBLE ROLES (Male & Female, late teens-30’s)
We are looking for strong rock/pop vocalists who are also strong dancers for various ensemble roles.
