757.923.0003 ext. 3001

Synopsis:
42nd Street tells the story of a humble, naïve young actress named Peggy Sawyer who has come to audition for a new Broadway musical,. Unfortunately, due to her nervousness, Peggy arrives to the audition late and misses her chance to join the chorus. Luckily, Peggy soon catches the eye of the famous director, Julian Marsh, and he gives Peggy her big break. However, the show’s aging leading lady, Dorothy Brock, quickly grows to dislike Peggy. On opening night, Ms. Brock falls and breaks her ankle. Panic spreads through the company, as the show is doomed for closure, until it is suggested that Peggy take the roll. In only thirty-six hours, Peggy learns twenty-five pages, six songs and ten dance numbers and becomes a star.

Characters:
Peggy Sawyer – A young, starry-eyed, naïve, and humble chorus girl who assumes the Lead role in Pretty Lady when Dorothy breaks her ankle. She is the triple threat in the show – must sing, act, and dance (tap) very well. Alto-mezzo soprano: should belt and be able to easily transition to head voice.
Dorothy Brock- A past-her-prime and well-known, Broadway diva. She is supposed to be the female lead in Pretty Lady because she is dating Abner who is paying for the show. While very selfish and mean to everyone at first, she comes to understand what’s really important in life after breaking her ankle and therefore unable to perform. Low Alto. She is not a great dancer, but some basic movement required
Maggie Jones - One of the writers for Pretty Lady. Comedic role. Alto-Mezzo soprano: A flat below middle C to C. Some dance required.
Bert Barry - One of the writers for Pretty Lady. Comedic role. Tenor: range C to high F. Some dance required.
Julian Marsh – Famous, but notorious, Broadway director who comes off very gruff as he barks his directions at actors and crew. Voice: Baritone : range D to high G. Dancing: Light
Billy Lawlor – The youthful, leading tenor in Pretty Lady. Voice: very high tenor. Dancing: very strong, especially in tap.
Ann Reilly – (“Anytime Annie”) Sassy chorus girl in Pretty Lady. Heavy dance role (tap) who can also sing (belt).
Pat Denning – Former vaudeville partner of Dorothy’s and her secret romantic partner. Vocal range: D to Eb
Andy Lee – Choreographer/Dance Director of Pretty Lady. No solo singing. Dancing: Intense, especially tap.
Abner Dillon – Financial backer of Pretty Lady and Dorothy’s “sugar daddy” from Texas. He doesn’t realize Dorothy is only with him because of his money. Mostly speaking role, no solo singing
Lorraine Flemming, Phyllis Dale, and Gladys – Experienced chorus girls who help Peggy. Heavy dance roles (tap) who can sing (belt) as well. Limited solo singing with some spoken lines.

*Please bring a headshot or picture with you and prepare 16-32 bars of a standard musical theatre song. An accompanist and/or CD player will be provided.

General William Dorsey Pender was one of the youngest generals in the Confederacy in the American Civil War.

Pender was mortally wounded on the second day of Gettysburg.
