Don LockwoodM
35-45
Triple threat! Dancer, singer, actor who understands comedy and has lots of pizzazz! Leading man with a big smile who copes with a ‘Leading Lady’ who should be sent to her room! And finds the love of his life hiding in a cake!P42 (top) to P43 ‘…I’ll try.’ P13 to P15 (with Kathy)21 - Singin' in the Rain – bars 20-51

Cosmo BrownM
35-45
Triple threat! Dancer, singer, actor, pianist, (piano could be cheated but it would be great if the actor could play!) Carries the comedy of the show so experience in slapstick comedy and a willingness to make a fool of yourself in the audition would be ideal! – try and make the panel laugh and you are onto a winner!P27 (top) to P28 (into song)11 - Make 'em Laugh - bar A-39
Roscoe DexterM
30-50
Actor with some movement required. Classic early film director thinks he is a dictator but is foiled by the not so bright star! ‘Yes man’ to the producer!P50 (bottom) to P51 (bottom)
Lina LamontF
30-40
Actor, singer (both good and not so good singer!) The not so bright star! Gorgeous to look at, but a voice which could cut glass…probably a southern accent? but open to interpretation. Always thinks she is right and can be crafty! She’d be great if only she wasn’t such a bitch! Very much the David Beckham of the show!P45 (top) to P46 (top) and P74 (enter) to P76 (exit)26 - What's wrong with me? - bars 34-57
R.F. SimpsonM
50-65
Actor with some movement required. The ‘boss’ of the studio and producer of silent films and then the talkies, particularly movie musicals. Good at getting the best out of the people he has under contract! Strong clear thinking who recognises the way things are going with the industry.P34 (entry) to P35 ‘…they talk’
Dora BaileyF
40-60
Actor – is a gossip columnist (think Joan Rivers) She might be ‘sweet’ to the star’s faces but she’s a powerful and dangerous woman. She can make or wreck a career in one column! Narrates the red carpet movie premieres.P84 (Dora’s speech)
Zelda ZandersF
30-40
Actor – A star in her own right – an accomplice of Lina in her attempts to bribe! You wouldn’t want to cross her!P77 to P78 (end)
Miss DinsmoreF

Actor – Lina’s long-suffering vocal coach. Must have excellent diction! Requires a comedy actress who is good at playing the ‘mother hen’ type character as she cares for the younger performers.P45
Male Diction TeacherM
