    Strong vocal actress who can use her voice to the fullest extent. From the outset, an “everyday” housewife & mother whose plans for a career in architecture were waylaid by an unexpected pregnancy & marriage. Upon deeper inspection, she is living with bi-polar disorder brought on by a traumatic event earlier in her life. She is at times manic, depressive, and delusional, heavily medicated & been to just about every doctor, tried almost every treatment. She is witty & self-aware, but tortured by ghosts from her past. Loves & prioritizes her children and her husband, is trying to remember to do so for herself.

  • Role #2 - Dan Goodman

    Rock Baritone and very strong vocal actor. The patriarch of the Goodman family, desperate to do whatever it takes to convince everyone, including (and especially) himself, that they have a “perfect, loving family”. He is patient, kind, really tired, and loves his family. An architect who married young after a wild courtship, and is waking up in his 40s asking himself, “what happened”. He is visibly guided by what he thinks is best. His own grief lingers beneath the surface as he prioritizes that of his wife.

    Strong Soprano Belter with a pretty head voice. Diana & Dan’s high school aged daughter. Musically gifted, intelligent, an overachiever who struggles to step out from her brother’s shadow in her mother’s eyes, and from her mother’s shadow in her father’s. Her life has been characterized and defined by her mother’s medical history. Extremely eager to graduate early & get out of her house. Her mindset that she’s invisible to everyone is shattered when Henry sees her more clearly than anyone in her life ever has.

  • Natalie’s classmate and boyfriend, who noticed her long before she noticed him. Simultaneously a good and bad influence on Natalie, Henry is a musician and describes himself as “lazy, a loner, a bit of a stoner”, but is sweet and proactive when it comes to dating Natalie. A mirror of the eagerness that Dan felt when he first met and dated Diana. The audience learns about the details of the family’s past alongside Henry.

  • Role #6 - Dr. Madden

    very much like a classic rock star, but also able to sing very conversationally. Diana’s handsome psychiatrist who slips in and out of being a “rock star” in Diana’s fantasies. He encourages Diana to delve into her past in a way that other doctors have not, resulting in subsequent highs and lows for Diana. Attempts hypnosis with her, so an ability to take on a calm & hypnotic demeanor that contrasts with the “rock star” is appreciated. Doubles as Diana’s psychopharmacologist Dr. Fine, who is much more rigid and formal.
