ABOUT THE CHARACTERS

LEADS
DR. HENRY JEKYLL: (18-30)   
A scientist who has suffered with depression for years. He is obsessed with human behavior, the origin of sin, and trying to find a ‘cure’ for human wickedness. He is polite, intelligent, and intellectual. A powerful tenor, he should be able to bring the extremes of emotion in his voice and acting. Vocal range: C2-G3 (Tenor)

MR. EDWARD HYDE
: (18-30)  
A scientist who has suffered with depression for years. He is obsessed with human behavior, the origin of sin, and trying to find a ‘cure’ for human wickedness. He is polite, intelligent, and intellectual. A powerful baritone, he should be able to bring the extremes of emotion in his voice and acting. Vocal range: A1-E3 (Baritone)

LIZZIE O'CONNELL
: (18-30)An aspiring investigative journalist who hopes to find her big break soon. She is sarcastic, enthusiastic, bold, optimistic, spunky, and ambitious, while still keeping her hope in Christ. All that being said, the actress will need to bring a sense of realism to the character to make her relatable. The director desires that she not merely be played as “quirky”. A confident mezzo-soprano with a strong mix/belt. Jazz vocals are a plus. Vocal Range: Lizzie: A2-E4 (Soprano)

MAJOR SUPPORTING WITH SOLOS
 TRIPP FLANDERS: (18-30)
Lizzie's closest friend and assistant. He has great potential in journalism, being bright and charismatic, but is content being Lizzie's assistant, with whom he has been in love for three years. Vocal Range: Tripp: Bb1-F3 (Tenor)

OSCAR PIERSON: (30-60)  
A tired police inspector who has lived in Chicago for 34 years. He has seen it all, and is now disillusioned and burnt out by the never-ending crime. He is a cynical realist. Vocal Range:C2-Eb3 (Baritone)

EDGAR/EILEEN CHAUNCEY
: (20-60)
Can be played by either gender. The Editor-in-Chief of the Chicago Tribune. He/she is an experienced and determined businessman/woman. Chauncey is fond of Tripp, seeing the young man’s potential, but often annoyed with Lizzie and her enthusiasm. Vocal Range: C2-Db3 (Baritone)/A2-Bb3 (Alto)

MINOR SUPPORTING WITH SOLOS
MR. POOLE: (30-60)
Dr. Jekyll's butler. He is a wise, elderly, Christian man who has served the Jekyll family since Dr. Jekyll was young. Vocal Range: C2-Eb3 (Baritone)

MRS. WESCOTT:
(20-40)
Dr. Jekyll's housekeeper. She is a compassionate, insightful, Christian woman who does her best to ensure Dr. Jekyll’s well-being. Can be played either as a younger woman or matronly. Vocal Range: C3-Bb3 (Alto)

MARGARET PAGE: (18-30)
A maid at a local hotel who is hard-working, and lives alone. Should be a strong mover with jazz vocals. Vocal Range:  F#2-C4 (Alto)

JACKIE SMITH: (18-40)
Mr./Mrs. Chauncey's Secretary. Tap experience is preferred though not required for this role.

ALICE COLE
: (16-20)  
A cynical young woman who works at Mr. Smile's Coffee and then at a fancy restaurant. Her character brings an element of comic relief as her encounters with Dr. Jekyll never end well.

MR./MRS. SCALZITTI: (20-60)
Can be played by either gender. The owner of the Corner Store where Hyde’s first crime takes place. 

MINOR SUPPORTING WITHOUT SOLOS
DIANA CALDWELL
: (18-30)
A woman from Ms. Wescott's church who has been set up on a date with Dr. Jekyll.

JOE/JO BAGS: (20-40)
Can be played by either gender. An eccentric person who adoringly cares for their pigeons. 

ENSEMBLE
PEOPLE OF CHICAGO: (18-60s) Includes the paperboy/girl, townspeople, newspaper employees, waitresses, and police officers. Several stand out lines and one-line solos available.

DANCERS: (18-40s) We would love to cast at least three more advanced dancers to be stand outs in the many ensemble and solo numbers. Please make sure to note in your resume how many years you’ve been dancing, experience (recitals/shows), and what types of dance you can perform – Jazz, Ballet/Lyrical, and Tap are a plus.

PLEASE NOTE

 We will be limiting our cast to 15-20 people. Some actors may be cast in multiple roles.
Those cast in minor roles will also act as the ensemble.

​Also, Fractured is a dance heavy show so ALL actors will need to move well.
