Orchestrations by Tony Britten

Sky Masterson– A charming but self-assured gambler. Sky is able to adapt to any situation but ready to reel off prepared
anecdotes regarding his view of the world. Despite his failings, Sky is immensely like able and oozes style.
Songs: I’ll Know, My Time of Day, I’ve Never Been, Luck be a Lady, Happy Ending

Nathan Detroit– A feckless and humorous manipulator, Nathan is the facilitator of illegal gambling in town. He maintains a distance by acting only as a broker; seldom a gambler. A consummate businessman with divided loyalties; he pacifies his fiancé Adelaide with vague promises of a marriage ‘some time’ in the future.
Songs: The Oldest Established, Sue Me, Happy Ending

Nicely Nicely Johnson
– An eccentric gambler and one of Nathan’s closest associates. 

Songs: Fugue for Tinhorns, The Oldest Established, Guy and Dolls, Sit Down, You’re Rock’ the Boat, The Happy Ending

Benny Southwest
– A gambler and one of Nathan’s primary associates (friends).

Songs: Fugue for Tinhorns, The Oldest Established, Guys and Doll, The Happy Ending

Arvide Abernathy
– A member of the Save-a-Soul mission, Arvide is Sarah’s grandfather. He is a reasoned

old man with a warm heart that harbours only the kindest intentions, even if he tends to be a little gullible.
Songs: Follow the Fold, More I cannot Wish You, The Happy Ending

Rusty Charlie
– A gambler and one of Nathan’s primary associates (friends).

Songs: Fugue for Tinhorns, The Happy Ending

Big Jule
– An intimidating hustler from Chicago, Big Jule is temperamental and a sore loser. Although not

necessarily a large man, stage presence and acting ability are the main requirements for this role.

Harry the Horse– A gambler with a complaining streak and is one of Nathan’s primary associates.

Lt. Brannigan
– A policeman engaged in what he perceives to be a battle of wits with Nathan to stop the

craps game. This is primarily an acting role. Comic timing and acting ability are essential.

Angie the Ox
– Gambler in Nathan’s gambling group of friends.

Joey Biltmore
– Gambler and business man

Calvin
– Member of the Mission Band

 

FEMALE SPEAKING/SINGING ROLES
Sarah Brown– An idealistic but sheltered missionary, Sarah is kind-hearted but too categorical in her view of the
world. She learns she has an adventurous side and goes through character changes over the course of the show.
Must feel comfortable with classic musical theatre singing as well as jazz.
Songs: Follow the Fold, I’ll Know, If I Were a Bell, I’ve Never Been, Marry the Man Today, The Happy Ending

Adelaide– A strongly comic and classic show girl. A club singer and Nathan’s long-suffering fiancée, Adelaide is
not always the brightest. Weary of the disruption Nathan’s involvement in the craps game causes to their relationship,
she longs for quiet family life away from New York.
Songs: Bushel and a Peck, Adelaide’s Lament, Take Back Your Mink, Adelaide’s 2nd Lament, Sue Me, Marry the
Man Today, The Happy Ending

General Matilda B. Cartwright- The regional director of the Save-a-Soul mission, Matilda
is authoritative through necessity but motivated by charity. She cuts loose in the song Sit Down Your
Rockin’ the Boat.

Agatha– A member of the Mission Band and a friend of Sarah.
Songs: Follow the Fold, Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat, The Happy Ending

Martha– A member of the Mission Band and a friend of Sarah.
