Character Breakdown

ROBBIE HART (Male, 25 to 35, Vocal Range: C6 to B3) – The lead singer of a band. Handsome and charismatic. A truly ‘nice’ guy that has the classic lead singer aura and personality. Also a bit of a dreamer. In love with love until Linda leaves him at the altar and breaks his heart.

SAMMY (Male, 25 to 35, Vocal Range: A5 to C4) – The bass player in the wedding band and one of Robbie’s best friends. A total guy’s guy, but beneath his pretending to love being a bachelor he is actually in love with Holly.

GEORGE (Male, 25 to 35, Vocal Range: A5 to C4) · Student Contract – The wedding band’s keyboardist and one of Robbie’s best friends. He is sensitive and somewhat flamboyant. The foil to Sammy’s super guy attitude.

JULIA SULLIVAN (Female, 25 to 35, Vocal Range: F5 to G3) – Waitress. The pretty “girl next door” in looks and personality. Engaged to Glen but falls in love with Robbie and is conflicted as to who to choose. Empathetic, caring, and brave.

HOLLY (Female, 25 to 35, Vocal Range: E5 to A3) – Julia’s cousin. Sexually promiscuous and always up for a good time, but wants to be loved and is looking for romantic fulfillment in all the wrong places. She is in love with Sammy.

GLEN GULIA (Male, 30 to 45, Vocal Range: B5 to D4) – Julia’s fiancé. A Wall Street broker. He is rich, shallow, and materialistic. Constantly tries to buy Julia’s love with money. He is a bit of a womanizer.

ROSIE (Female, 60 to 80, Vocal Range: C5 to C4) – Robbie’s grandmother who raised him. Motherly but adventurous and always trying to remain “hip” despite her age.

LINDA (Female, 20 to 30, Vocal Range: D5 to A3) – THIS ROLE HAS BEEN CAST. Robbie’s fiancé who leaves him at the altar. Keeps Robbie around as a back-up plan. Is more in love with the idea of Robbie being a rock star than she actually is with Robbie.

ENSEMBLE – Couples (Harold & Debbie, Shane & Donatella, Crystal & Mookie); Wedding Guests; Stockbrokers; Impersonators
