Audition Description

At the dawn of a new century, everything is changing… and anything is possible. Set in the volatile melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York, three distinctly American tales are woven together – that of a stifled upper-class wife, a determined Jewish immigrant and a daring young Harlem musician – united by their courage, compassion and belief in the promise of the future. Together, they confront history's timeless contradictions of wealth and poverty, freedom and prejudice, hope and despair, and what it means to live in America.

  • A haggard, Latvian immigrant who dreams the \"American Dream\" for himself and his daughter, Tateh is a wonderful character. He displays the struggles of the newly arrived immigrants to this country during the turn of the century. Vocal range top: F5, Vocal range bottom: A3, Tenor.

  • Mother's younger brother who has his heart broken by Evelyn Nesbit and joins Coalhouse in his protests towards discrimination. He is a young man in search of something.

  • Father is rich, conservative and staunch in his ways but not intentionally unkind. He makes the decision to leave his family and go off exploring the North Pole and then unsuccessfully, tries to reconnect with the world left behind before his journey.

  • The beautiful vaudeville performer was made famous for the murder of her high profile lover by her rich husband. In the show, her character is invariably played, and arguably written to be, very one-dimensional, goofy, gorgeous, a bombshell young actress and model.

  • Tateh's daughter, Little Girl is a young Eastern European immigrant in a new home. She is quite stoic and unusually mature for her age. She is reserved and quiet, but not necessarily because she is shy. She is intelligent and is raised by her father to be a cautious participant in a world of struggles. Her dead-pan delivery of a few lines provides some wonderful laughs. A command of the dialect will be necessary. Vocal range top: D5, Vocal range bottom: C4, Soprano.

  • Ford is a historical American industrialist and founder of the Ford Motor Company. Considered to be egotistical and full of himself, no one can doubt the contributions Ford gave to industrialization in America and the world. His processes for manufacturing lead to the rapid rise of a new class of citizens in this country who enjoyed vastly increased financial gains and creature comforts in the decades that followed. He’s an innovator. His passion for his business is felt and reflected in every waking second of his life. The actor must emote the energy and enthusiasm this man embodied.

    Expiration Date: Mar 14, 2020
  • A racist volunteer fireman who destroys Coalhouse's car, Conklin is the spark that ignites Coalhouse’s mini revolution. He is the very epitome of racial intolerance. His lack of intelligence and utterly palpable displays of racial superiority echo the deep divisions that existed between the various races, creeds, and ethnicities within the country both at the time of the show and nowadays. This character is brash, brazen, abrasive, offensive, and just plain ugly. He’s not a guy with whom anyone can empathize. Vocal range top: F5, Vocal range bottom: D4, Tenor.
