Role Breakdown

GODSPELL

Seeking:

JESUS
High energy, charming, funny, charismatic, gentle but with strength. The sort of person others instinctively follow.

JOHN THE BAPTIST/JUDAS
He has attributes of both Biblical figures: he is Jesus’ lieutenant and most ardent disciple and the doubter who begins to question and rebel. Charismatic much like Jesus.

=========

CAROUSEL

Seeking:

BILLY BIGELOW
A barker for the Mullin Carousel. Billy’s success is based in part on his attractiveness to the young women who visit the Carousel. Billy has never learned to deal with anyone he loves with anything other than violence.

JULIE JORDAN
A shy but headstrong young woman. She falls for Billy and recognizes that it will not come to a happy ending, but still would rather be with Billy than someone who would treat her as property.

CARRIE PIPPERIDGE
Julie’s best friend and a much more conventional woman of the time. She marries Mr. Snow.

ENOCH SNOW
Fisherman and future tycoon. Mr. Snow has his whole life planned out including his entire life with betrothed Carrie.

NETTIE FOWLER
Julie’s somewhat older and wiser cousin (maybe even kind of an Aunt). She runs the local eating establishment. She takes in Julie and the
unemployed Billy after their wedding.

JIGGER CRAIGIN
A good-for-nothing sailor off of a whaling ship. Every year in port he latches on to some unwitting accomplice for his criminal endeavors. This year it is Billy, and he leads Billy to his ruin.

LOUISE BIGELOW
Billy and Julie’s 15 year old daughter. Louise is tormented by the rest of the kids in the town because of how Billy dies and is thus very unhappy and combative.

ENOCH SNOW, JR.
Young man Louise’s age (15). He likes Louise but thinks of her as being below his station. In short, he is a lot like his father.

THE STARKEEPER/DR. SELDON
A heavenly figure. It is ambiguous as to whether the Starkeeper is God, or one of his angels. Dr. Seldon is the earthy version of the Starkeeper.

MRS. MULLIN
She owns the Carousel in the local amusement park. Upset about Billy’s attraction to Julie, she fires Billy when he marries Julie but later tries to get Billy to leave Julie and come back. Mrs. Mullin is a still attractive middle-aged widow. This is a non singing role.
