WHO: Theatreworks/USA – We The People

SEEKING: George Washington:
Male, 18+, baritenor. Charismatic leader (and lead singer) of the Founding Fathers rock band. He makes girls swoon.

Thomas Jefferson:
Male, 18+, rock tenor. The romantic of the group. He’s a rock star and he knows it. And he’s not afraid to put on a dress if it helps make a point.

John Adams:
Male, 18+, high tenor to B with very strong falsetto. Pugnacious and quick tempered. And he can rap. He’s a pretty cool dude. He’s the drummer for the band.

Benjamin Franklin:
Male 18+, baritone. He may never have been president, but this is one smart guy. The quirky one.

African American woman. 18+ to play 14, soprano with high mix belt to F. Smart, driven, fiercely competitive and ambitious, like the characters of Tracy Flick from Election or Rachel Berry from Glee.
