ROLES FOR GHOST THE MUSICAL
Sam Wheat: (Male) Late 20s to Early 30s. Pop/Rock Baritenor. Sam is the hero of our story living in New York City with his long-term girlfriend, Molly. A strong and confident businessman, he has difficulty with the emotional, soulful side of love. His greatest obstacle is his fear of commitment. He fears that when he gets things he wants in life, he will lose them. One day, Sam is murdered by Willie Lopez and finds himself caught between worlds. When he discovers Molly is in danger, he seeks a way to protect her. He ultimately saves Molly and expresses his love for her, prior to his transfiguration into another realm. Should move well for physical theatre transitions, character movements, and illusions. Guitar skills a plus. Vocal range: G2-Bb4
Molly Jensen: (Female) Late 20s to Early 30s. Excellent singer. Mezzo; strong belt/mix and strong head voice. Molly is an artist living in New York City with her boyfriend, Sam Wheat. Molly has an optimistic view on life and truly lives in the moment. In her relationship with Sam, she understands that a declaration of love requires vulnerability and surrender, but that is too great for him. When Sam is killed, she loses her zest for life and becomes a prisoner to her emotions. She struggles when she is asked to believe, through Oda Mae, that Sam's ghost is with her and awakens to believe in something that is beyond this world. Vocal range: G3-F5
Oda Mae Brown: (Female; African-American) Adult. Mezzo. Oda Mae Brown works as a medium and spiritual adviser of a storefront in Brooklyn. A smart woman, she supports her entire family through her scam- talking to the dearly departed. Though she was told as a child she had "the gift" by her mother and grandmother (who were both able to communicate with the dead), Oda Mae did not actually communicate with the spirits until she encounters Sam Wheat during a spiritual session with another client. Through her encounter with the ghost of Sam, she ultimately is moved as much by Sam and Molly's love as she is by the power to really talk to the other side. She is larger than life. Seeking an actress with strong comedic skills based in sincerity and truth. Some dancing required. Vocal range: A3-E5
Carl Bruner: (Male) 30s. Best friend of Sam Wheat. Carl desperately wants everything Sam has- including Molly. He has great passion for things of life, which leads him to some suspicious dealings involving Sam's business accounts. He is not necessarily a bad guy at heart, just stuck in the material. After Carl hires Willie Lopez to mug Sam and Sam is killed, Carl really loses his grip and slides over to the dark side. Some physical theatre work required for transitions. Vocal range: F3-A4
Subway Ghost/Orlando Jones/ Ensemble: (Male) 20s-30s. Strong spoken word/rap skills required. The Subway Ghost helps and teaches Sam to use his otherworldly powers. Aggressive and spooky, but within the realm of truthfulness. Good physical actor required with strong movement skills and athleticism.
