Characters:
Hedwig/Hanschel
Male
Lead
Tenor
A slip of a girly boy. East German transgendered rock singer. Seeking love and sexual identity. 20-30’s male.

Yitzhak
Female
Supporting
Mezzo-Soprano
Hedwig’s Croatian male husband and roadie/back-up singer. 20-30s female. He is Hedwig’s vocal sparring partner- theirs is an emotional and at times abusive relationship. The actress playing Yitzhak should be believable as a butch male but one that chafes at the bonds of traditional masculinity and longs to explore his feminine, creative side. Very strong singer with rock and roll vibe. Wide vocal range a must (High belt to a G). Must have a convincing Balkan accent. Actress should be able play basic percussion instruments – tambourine; maracas.

Synopsis:
“If the Coen Brothers decided to set a feminist revenge tale in Atlanta and sprinkle it with Dixie Chicks pixie dust, it might look something like Exit, Pursued by a Bear, a raucous comedy of friendship, domestic abuse, and performance-as-catharsis.” – ArtsCritic Atlanta.

This is a comedy based on a stage direction in Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale. It’s the first in the playwright’s Shakespeare Cycle, a series of contemporary comedies loosely based on Shakespeare’s plays. Nan has decided to teach her abusive husband Kyle a lesson. With the help of her friend Simon (acting as her emotional — and actual –cheerleader) and a stripper named Sweetheart, she duct tapes Kyle to a chair and forces him to watch as they reenact scenes from their painful past. In the piece de resistance, they plan to cover the room in meat and honey so Kyle will be mauled by a bear. Through this night of emotional trials and ridiculous theatrics, Nan and Kyle are both freed from their past in this smart, dark revenge comedy.

Based on the universally popular poetry of T.S. Eliot, CATS tells the story of the annual gathering of the Jellicle cats at which time one special cat is selected to ascend to the Heaverside layer. A true musical theatre phenomenon, CATS ran for over 18 years on Broadway. The energy and talent on stage is sure to be unmatched by any other youth production this summer.
