Audition Description

The show is a hilarous musical comedy centering around six spelling virtuosos, all of whom are vying for the coveted spelling bee championship.

    Eb3 – Bb4 Tenor- A finalist in last year’s Bee, he spells using his “magic foot” and has no interest in making friends at the bee.

    A2 – G4 Baritone or Tenor- As just the second runner-up in his district’s bee, he really shouldn’t be competing here. He makes his own clothes, is home schooled with his hippy parents and siblings, and lacks social skills. He’s strange but very sweet, loving, and kindhearted but distracted.

    C3 – B4 Tenor - Last year’s Putnam County champ who begins to learn the ups and downs of puberty during the bee. He is strong willed, competitive, ambitious, and – most of all – very horny. This role has some of the most difficult singing in the show and requires long sustained high notes.

    Vice Principal Douglas Patch - Non-singing (but can be added to ensemble numbers if actor can sing) . He was involved in an “incident” at the Twentieth Annual Bee that got him removed from the judging panel. He returns this year in “a better place,” thanks to a high-fiber diet and Jungian analysis. He is infatuated with Rona Lisa Peretti. Impeccable comic timing and the ability to improv are both needed for this character.

She is incredibly kind to the spellers, having been in their shoes many years earlier. Should have both a high belt and improv skills. Along with Panch, she guides the comedy of the show and the audience volunteers.

    E3 – A4 (B4) Tenor - This former felon is fulfilling his/her court ordered community service at the bee and acting as the bee’s “comfort counselor,” handing out juice boxes and a dose of reality to the losers. He/she comes across as scary and tough but is really a big softy deep down.

I was suspicious at first, you know the saying "too good to be true", but within a week I got a job for America's Hottest Mom as a judge which will air in the spring-not to mention the countless auditions that I have gone on. Recently I have done a tv spot for Dog the Bounty Hunter which will air on A&E. Thanks again, you have made my dream a reality. Thank you Explore Talent!
