Male & Female Singer/Actor/Dancers.
Tenor. His Andrews counterpart is LaVerne. His 4F ailment is incredibly poor eyesight. Wears thick glasses. Nervous.
Baritone. His Andrews counterpart is Maxene. His 4F ailment is flat feet. He is the stage manager and attempts to remain in charge in the face of total disaster. Must have solo tap skills.
Tenor / Baritone. His Andrews counterpart is Patty. His 4F ailment is asthma and when nervous, Patrick wheezes heavily. He stutters and stammers throughout act one, and generally sings lead in act two - front and center as Patty. Adorable and honest, Patrick is the underdog whom Peggy falls in love.
Mezzo-Soprano. A cross between Betty Hutton and Betty Grable, Peggy is a WWII pin-up girl who longs to show everyone she’s more than just another pretty face. Warm, loving and sincere. Must be a star quality soloist with strong tap skills.
Difficult, intricate harmonies throughout for everyone.Synopsis:
Andrews Brothers opens at an afternoon rehearsal for a USO show in the South Pacific. Max, Lawrence and Patrick Andrews are rehearsing with pin-up girl Peggy Jones for the big show that night. What Peggy doesn’t know is that the brothers are really just the stagehands for the show – her back-up singers didn’t arrive in time, and the boys were recruited by the Major in charge to fill in where needed. Just as they assume all will work out well, a radiogram arrives with the news that the headliners for tonight’s show, The Andrews Sisters, have been held in quarantine in Hawaii. The show must be cancelled. Unless, of course, there’s a way for the Andrews Sisters to appear...Mistaken identities and madcap adventures (imagine Bing Crosby & Bob Hope in a road movie of 'Some Like It Hot’) along with the music of an entire generation highlight this wonderful valentine to the heroes of World War II.
Please prepare two contrasting songs in the style of the show (songs from the WWII era) in the correct key with sheet music properly marked, and your picture and résumé stapled together. Accompanist will be provided. You may be asked to read. Those who are asked to come back to dance, please wear comfortable clothing. There will be a jazz combination and a short tap combination.
