Full Character Breakdown

ANDREW JACKSON (Male, 20s-Early 30s) A roguish, man’s president. Deeply charming and sexy, so much so that you somehow don’t mind he’s a violent, arrogant, bigoted idiot. Fights passionately for what he believes in. Personifies “strong but wrong.” Ages throughout the show so should be able to play young. Must be adept at deadpan comedy. Guitar-playing a plus. High baritone rock. Up to a G belt.

MARTIN VAN BUREN (Male, 20s-Mid 30s) Jackson’s right hand man. In over his head. A buffoon, well-intentioned and utterly lovable. Think Nicely-Nicely. Doubles as other roles.

RACHEL JACKSON (Female, Mid 20s-Mid 30s) Jackson’s wife. Deeply religious and devoted, even maternal, to Jackson. Strangely alluring, not overtly sexual. Doubles as other roles.

THE STORYTELLER (Female, 20s-40s) Milquetoast, oppressively good-natured narrator. Wears a Puff the Magic Dragon-style sweater, thick glasses, and her hair in a bun. Loves history, loves Jackson, and loves telling the audience about both.

JOHN C. CALHOUN (Male, 20s-Mid 30s) Gentlemen senator from the South. Sinister, good-looking, charming, and brilliant. A vain mastermind. Wears the finest clothes. The most restrained of the cabal. Tall, thin. Doubles as other roles. Baritone

HENRY CLAY (Male, 20s-Mid 30s ) A backwoods version of Calhoun’s villainous senator. Think Crispin Glover. Greasy hair. Wears weasel pelts. Over-the-top and vivacious. Transparent in his villainy and revels in it. Tall, cadaverous. Doubles as other roles, Baritone

JAMES MONROE (Male, early-mid 30s ) President of the United States. Old school American aristocracy. Foppish and overwhelmed. Exasperated by Jackson’s overreaching as well as by the idiocy of his advisors. Doubles as other roles.

JOHN QUINCY ADAMS (Male, Early 20s-Early 30s) Former President’s son. Whiny, spoiled, demanding. All grown up, has joined the Calhoun-Clay cabal. Really, really wants to be President. Like, right now. Doubles as other roles. Baritone

BLACK FOX (Male, 20s-Mid 30s ) Native American chief. Intelligent, somber, with a hint of danger. Used to work alongside Jackson, an alliance that led him to tricking and betraying other tribes for Jackson. By the end of the show, he’s forced to beg his friend for mercy. May double other roles

BANDLEADER (Male/Female, 20s-40’s) Dark and dangerous. Multiple Instrument skill a plus.

FEMALE SOLOIST (Female, 20s-40’s ) Sings “Ten Little Indians”; Self-confident, attractive singer with powerful, emotive indie rock voice. Dark, mysterious, hip vibe. Doubles as other roles. Think Dresden Dolls, not musical theater. alto-belts up to a Bb.

VARIOUS ENSEMBLE (Male/Female, 20s-30s) Frontiersmen, Indians, Soldiers. Doubles other roles. Strong pop/rock vocals.
