Millie Dillmount Millie is the sweet, classic ingénue with pluck. The role requires excellent vocal chops; in fact, no other character in the Broadway Junior collection of shows sings as much as Millie. The role of Millie is the perfect star turn for that extra special performer. Cast a young woman with an excellent Broadway style voice with lots of stamina. Millie must also have charisma, a great sense of comedy, good acting skills and be able to hold her own as a dancer.Gender: FemaleVocal range top: E5Vocal range bottom: G#3
Jimmy Jimmy is our male counterpart to Millie. Self-assured and cocky, cast a Jimmy who is charming, a great singer, a reasonable mover and who has a good sense of comic timing. Jimmy should be attractive in a cute, goofy sort of way.Gender: MaleVocal range top: G5Vocal range bottom: C4
Mrs. Meers Mrs. Meers is the villain of our story. Think Cruella DeVille meets Miss Hannigan. Cast an over-the-top “scenery chewer” who has an excellent sense of comedic timing.Gender: FemaleVocal range top: F#4Vocal range bottom: A3
Miss Dorothy Miss Dorothy is the perfect role for a young lady with a voice that is more classical than Broadway. She should be attractive, a good actress and should contrast physically with Millie.Gender: FemaleVocal range top: F5Vocal range bottom: F#4
Miss Flannery Miss Flannery is the office manager. She’s uptight (think librarian) and stern, a real no-nonsense kind of gal. Cast an up-and-comer who’s not quite ready for a huge lead, but is definitely ready to break out of the chorus. Having tap skills and a good sense of comedy are definite pluses for this gem of a role.Gender: FemaleVocal range top: C5Vocal range bottom: A4
Ching Ho Ching Ho and Bun Foo are brothers and emigrants from China. These two are working to bring their dear mother to the United States from China. While it’s nice to cast performers of Asian descent in these roles, it is not always possible. These characters must learn some Chinese, so cast kids who live for great challenges and have a keen sense of adventure. Ching Ho must be played by a boy and is the more demanding role; Bun Foo can be played by a girl. These characters sing, dance, and act, all in Chinese.Gender: MaleVocal range top: E5Vocal range bottom: Bb3

Trevor Graydon the Third Trevor Graydon the Third is Millie’s boss and she’s determined to marry him. Cast your best-looking singer who’s not afraid to be a bit of a goof ball.Gender: MaleVocal range top: F5Vocal range bottom: A3
Hotel Priscilla Girls The Hotel Priscilla Girls are the fellow boarders at the Hotel Priscilla. If possible vary them widely in size, shape, color and attitude. They should be good singers and actresses. The girls with solo lines include: Ruth, Gloria, Rita, Alice, Cora, Lucille and Ethel Peas.Gender: Female
Mama Mama is Ching Ho and Bun Foo’s mother from China. She makes a surprise cameo appearance during the finale of the show. This is a great walk-on part for the principal, a local celebrity or parent. No singing, no dancing involved.Gender: Female
Ensemble The cast can be expanded in many ways and in many places. You can augment the ladies staying at the Hotel Priscilla. Street scenes, the speakeasy, the jail scene, etc. offer innumerable opportunities for many, many students to participate.Gender: Any
ME Performing Arts
We have created a new approach for talented young students to experience both training and performance opportunities here in Central Florida! Students will have the chance to perform the greatest selection of musicals from Broadway and beyond, while creating memories that will last forever. The three skills necessary to excel in the performing arts are acting, dancing and singing, and we have tailored this program to give our students the opportunity to train and master all three!
Our aim is to deliver a professional experience for young artists to work in a professional theatre with professional microphones, lighting and costumes, all while building memories that will shape young minds to be independent performers.
Each show produced by ME Performing Arts will begin with an audition process. Our first open audition will be held in January 2020 and will be open to students ages 8-18. Based on talent, we will build and announce our first season of productions.
We are now accepting private auditions for 2020 Season. To schedule your audition, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will select our season based on interest and talent. If you would like to be considered for any future shows, we recommend scheduling an audition.
