Role Description

The Proffesor (Harpo)/Butler/Man B: (Supporting) has an uninhibited, playful, childlike demeanor with an irrepressible libido, seems oblivious but knows what is going on around him, carefree and innocent he does not observe boundaries of class, status, gender, age, and property, steals things but it seems like more of a game than a malicious or desperate act, must be extremely adept at physical comedy, while an exact impersonation of Harpo is not necessary certain characteristics of movement and delivery are a part of the role, mime/clowning experience is preferred, ideally will be able to play the harp well, however we are open to actors able to play other instruments with great skill, must sing and move as other characters; baritone, B flat two below middle C to belt D.
