Role Description

Ensemble: seeking four males and four females, seeking a diverse group of hilarious actors whose ability to instantly switch between ridiculous characters is essential, the chorus is written in an "satb" format (two on each part), so ideally there will be a variety of ranges and vocal types, ideally seeking two sopranos who are comfortable up to a high G, there aren't actually any real "bass" notes, so there is no need for deep basses, but there is need some high tenors, up to an A, vocal versatility is ideal (comfortable with mixing/belting).
