Role Breakdown

MURDER BALLAD

A sung-thru Rock Musical

Seeking:

Sara:
Early - Mid 30s Female, any ethnicity. MUST SING! An Upper West Side mom who can't quite leave her rock n' roll wild-child past behind. Vital, sexy, and a little tough. A warm and funny mother and wife; unfussy. But she has a reckless streak, and a yearning for the excitement of her youth. A complicated woman.

Narrator:
Late 20s - 30s Female, any ethnicity. MUST SING! A soulful, sometimes wry, observer. A woman with a story to tell, and the charisma to draw us in. But there's a large and surprising well of passion beneath her affable demeanor.
