If auditioning for Claudia, Athena, or Mrs. Osgood, please come prepared to sing a song from the 1930s or 40s. You can bring a CD for your accompaniment or sing acapella.
Bernard Dunlap – 40+ male, General Manager of the Palm Beach Royale Hotel & Spa. He JUST wants everything at his hotel to run smoothly and doesn’t handle it well when it doesn’t.
Claudia McFadden – 30+ female, America’s Beloved Matron of Song. Larger than life, she moves into every room like an elegantly dressed tornado, punctuated with an exclamation point.
Athena Sinclair – 30+ female, a great star of stage and screen. Beautiful, stylish, and every inch the diva. A former screen siren, she is Hollywood Royalty and everything that goes with it.
Murphy Stephens – 20s female, Athena’s personal secretary and former fiancée of Francis. At one time, she, too, wanted to be a big star but settled for being secretary to a big star.
Mr. Pippit – 30-50 male, Claudia’s personal secretary. He’s pretty much resigned to the fact that his lot in life is to be yelled at. Compared to his employer, Pippet is a tiny man.
Dora Del Rio – 30+ female, a gossip columnist. She’s the type who can SMELL a juicy story and will try just about anything to get it. Must be good at physical comedy.
Mrs. Everett P. Osgood – 40+ female, a society matron and President of the Palm Beach Ladies for Unity. A bit daft, she sees the War Effort as equivalent to one of her cotillions.
Francis – 20s to early 30s male, a bellhop and former fiancé of Murphy. He quit show business to join the army. They wouldn’t take him so he’s been hiding out in Palm Beach.
Otis – 20s to 40s, male, another bellhop. Otis tends to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. To that end, he must have excellent physical agility and comedic timing.
