ROLES 

 

  • Jerry Lukowski (M, 20s-40s, tenor). Earnest, desperate, yet still holding on to hope that he can turn his life around.  Loves his ex-wife Pam and their son Nathan.
  • Dave Bukatinsky (M, 20s-50s, tenor). A natural follower, big hearted and generous.  Insecure about his body, but devoted to his wife Georgie.
  • Ethan Girard (M, 20s-40s, tenor). Has a dream to dance like Donald O’Connor.  Also has a rather large, um, endowment (don’t worry, the audience won’t see it, just the other actors on stage).   A little naïve. 
  • Malcolm McGregor (M, 20s-50s, tenor). Lonely guy, depressed and isolated, finds a new purpose in life through the plan to strip.  A mama’s boy.
  • Harold Nichols (M, 40s-60s, baritone/tenor) An ex-foreman, lying to his wife about his lack of a job, desperate to keep her from worrying.
  • Noah T Simmons (aka Horse) (M African-American, 40s-60s, baritone/tenor) A great dancer, despite his advancing arthritis.  A little cynical, but willing to give this thing a try.
  • Buddy Keno Walsh (M, 20s-40s, tenor/baritone/bass-baritone). An excellent dancer, professional Chippendale’s stripper.  Realistic about what he does and why.
  • Nathan Lukowski (young M, 10-14). Starts by being tired of his dad’s lack of motivation, but ends up believing in his dad and supporting him.  Non-singing role.
  • Pam Lukowski (F, 20s-40s, mezzo-soprano). Jerry’s ex-wife, still cares for him but can’t live with his immaturity.  Suing him for back child support.
  • Georgie Bukatinsky (F, 20s-50s, soprano) Dave’s wife, salt of the earth, supportive and warm. Wishes Dave weren’t so insecure.
  • Jeanette Burmeister (F, 40s-80s, Alto) Rehearsal pianist for the guys (so ability to play piano at least a little would be helpful), gritty, seen-it-all and then some, cracks jokes, still glamorous, a real dame.
  • Vicki Nichols (F, 30s-60s, mezzo-soprano/alto). Harold’s wife, emotionally stronger than she seems, and definitely stronger than Harold thinks she is.  Gentle, quiet demeanor – until she’s not.
  • Ensemble:  5-15 people of all ages and singing & dancing abilities.  Will play multiple roles with brief lines.  Some chorus work, some dance work.
