The Story:

The enchanting tale of Toymaker Geppetto and his little wooden puppet is re-imagined in this Broadway Junior version based upon the classic Disney story. This new musical boasts favorite tunes from “When You Wish Upon a Star” and “I’ve Got No Strings”, as well as brand new tunes by the Oscar and Grammy Award winner and master melodist, Stephen Schwartz. Brundage Park Playhouse is proud to present this musical as part of our 2014 Season.

 

The Cast:

Fairies in Training: Vocal Range G3 – E5

Rosa, Viola & Arancia are sweet and kind. Expressive observers.They sing as a group, often alongside the Blue Fairy.

Sue is a fairy in training who marches to the beat of her own drum. She isn’t your typical fairy, as sweetness isn’t in her nature. A contrast to Rosa, Viola and Arancia, although vocally she should blend in.

The Blue Fairy is convinced of her own perfection and does not like having it called into question. Good comedic instincts and a solid singing voice. This role does not require excessive dancing.

Vocal Range G3 – E5

Geppetto is a lonely toymaker who longs to be a father. Strong singer, as Geppetto has several solos. Vocal Range Bb3 – F5

Pinocchio is a wooden puppet who doesn’t know where he belongs. Lively personality of a little boy. Although Pinocchio is a boy, the role can be played by a boy or girl. Pinocchio has a few solos. Vocal Range G3 – E5

Signora Giovanni – Pinocchio’s teacher. Non-singing role.

Stromboli is a bumbling, loud, incompetent puppeteer who has at least a few screws loose. Versatile, Over-the-top. Stromboli’s songs are challenging. Vocal Range Bb3 – F5

Professore Buonragazzo – a nutty inventor obsessed with building perfect children. Vocal Range

Bb3 – C#4

Junior is Professore Buonragazzo’s mirror image assistant. Need to mimic the performer playing the Professor. A short solo is required.Vocal Range Bb3 – C#4

Animals (Pig, Foxes, Horse) serve as voices of reason for Geppetto’s journey. Non-singing Roles. Comic timing and deadpan delivery are essential.

Townspeople:

Parents are the beleaguered mothers and judgmental fathers of the town children. Some solos and Group singing.

Children of Idyllia are the perfect children created by Professore Buonragazzo Sing in groups, with featured speaking lines. There are great opportunities for movement and dance.

Ringleader - The Ringleader runs Pleasure Island. Mischevious, a showman. Some singing and is a great opportunity to showcase a dancer. The Ringleader can be played by a boy or a girl. Vocal Range A3 – E5

Roustabouts are the sidekicks to Pleasure Island’s Ringleader. When performing these roles, personality is key. Group singing is required.

Delinquents (Malvolio, Brutto, Sporco, others) can expand to include more performers and are great roles for non-singers. Also, they must be comfortable turning into donkeys.

 

Auditions will be at the playhouse on Carrell Road in Randolph, New Jersey. For further information, please call (973) 989-7092.
