Character Breakdowns
 
Brad - Tenor (written top G/Ab); a sort of 1960s style pop singer. Audition with either a pop song in that style or a pop/rock musical song. Straight Hero type; wears glasses; clean-cut. Age range 20s.
 
Janet - Soprano (Top F); the most legitimate voice in the cast. Comfortable with some light belting but can also sound classical in head voice. Audition with 2 short contrasting works for this part: An easy pop/rock (Broadway: Mamma Mia, Aida) and a classic Broadway soprano role (i.e Oklahoma, etc). Straight Heroine type. Age range 20s,
 
Riff Raff - Tenor (written top G/Ab); preferably a true classic rock screamer. You could even audition with something from Aerosmith or The Who; Not your average handyman. Age range 20-30s.
 
Magenta - Mezzo (Top C/D); rock belter type, but looking for a contrast between Magenta and Columbia. Think Joan Jett or Janis Joplin, Ann Wilson or Grace Slick. For these roles any good belting pop/rock song would work (remember, this is ROCK). Maid type on the kinky side. Riff Raff’s sister. Age range 20-30s.
 
Columbia - Mezzo (Top C/D); also a rock belter - but again, looking for a contrast between Magenta and Columbia.  (See the audition notes for Magenta). A Groupie. Age range 20s.
 
Dr. Frank N Furter - High Baritone (Top F or G); needs a full-bodied voice able to do a range of voices; a pop/rock musical song would work (Aida, Chess, etc.)  Age range 25-35.
 
Eddie - Baritone (Top F#). For auditions, any classic Broadway rocker song would do.  Biker look. Age looking range 25 - 45. Usually double cast with Dr. Scott.
 
Rocky – Tenor; must be in good shape; comfortable with wearing little clothing. Age range 25-35.  
 
Dr. Scott - (Talk Singing) Usually double cast with Eddie. Probably involving aging makeup for a younger actor. Age range 45-55.
