Audition Description

The seminal event in American history blazes to vivid life in this most unconventional of Broadway hits. 1776 puts a human face on the pages of history as we see the men behind the national icons: proud, frightened, uncertain, irritable, charming, often petty and ultimately noble figures, determined to do the right thing for a fledgling nation.

It's the summer of 1776, and the nation is ready to declare independence... if only our founding fathers can agree to do it! 1776 follows John Adams of Massachusetts, Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania and Thomas Jefferson of Virginia as they attempt to convince the members of the Second Continental Congress to vote for independence from the shackles of the British monarchy by signing the Declaration of Independence.

  • Role #1 - Dr. Lyman Hall

    Delegate from Georgia. Polite, with an easy sense of humor. Conflicted, because he is for independence even though his constituents aren't, necessarily.

  • Role #2 - Charles Thomson

    Secretary of the Congress. Responsible for reading the dispatches from Washington, and feels almost as if he is in personal conversation with the General. Painstakingly precise, possibly a little uptight.

    Age: 13 - 30
    Expiration Date: Jan 31, 2021
  • Role #3 - Andrew McNair

    Custodian of the Congress. Not especially concerned with propriety or authority, he treats the members of Congress with a probably inappropriate level of familiarity, and treats the young courier with respect. Sings "Momma, Look Sharp" with courier.

  • Role #4 - Benjamin Franklin

    Franklin is a delegate from Pennsylvania, and is filled with a jolly delight in words and a lust for life (and other things). He is Adams' strongest ally in the fight for independence, and perhaps a little better at working with people.

  • Role #7 - Edward Rutledge

    Delegate from South Carolina. The youngest member of Congress, a Southern gentleman who is in favor of independence - as long as South Carolina is independent of the other colonies, as well as England. His song, Molasses to Rum, serves as a brutal indictment of the mindset that kept the institution of slavery intact in the United States for the next century, not only because of the slave holding colonies in the South such as his own, but also because of the quiet complicity of the Northern colonies who benefited from the Triangle Trade.

    Thomas Jefferson's very-much-in-love wife. Her looks are striking, her dancing delightful, and her humor appealing. She doesn't shy away from a good time. Joy radiates from her.

    The message runner between General Washington's army and the Continental Congress. He has witnessed the hardships of war firsthand, and sings the haunting "Momma, Look Sharp" about his fallen comrades.

    Delegate from Maryland. Especially fond of food. Lukewarm supporter of independence, but not inclined to vote in favor considering the far greater strength of the British army.
