3DT YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN BREAKDOWN
FREDERICK FRANKENTSTEIN – (Male to play 30’s-40’s) A famous scientist dedicated to his work and innocent of the world at large. Intent to distance himself from his notorious grandfather, Dr. Victor Frankenstein, whose scientific legacy is less than legitimate. A warm lyric Baritone who sings to E-flat, and a comic actor who can navigate between manic energy and charm and elegance. Effortlessly sings (“Puttin’ On the Ritz”) and requires vocal power for a full-voice traditional Broadway ballad. Basic tap skills needed.
THE MONSTER – (Male, 20-50) Played by a bigger man (tall and broad). The misunderstood creation of Dr. Frankenstein. Also must be able to emit howling/monster/grunting sounds. Tap skills a plus.
ELIZABETH BENNING – (Female to play 20’s to 30’s) Frederick’s spoiled and self-centered fiancée. Great comic role. Versatile singer with wide vocal range and excellent comedic chops. Great mover/dancer preferred.
IGOR – (Male to play 20’s-40’s) Frederick’s faithful, bright-eyed, eager servant and friend – with a hunchback. Great comic role. High light Baritone (to F#). Must move well and have basic tap skills.
INGA – (Female to play 20’s-30’s) Frederick’s bubbly, not-so-bright, young, Transylvanian assistant. Oblivious to her own sexuality and appeal. A bright, clear youthful Broadway Mezzo with a high sustained belt to D-flat and a sweet mixed voice that extends up to high E. Must be a great dancer and have basic tap skills.
FRAU BLUCHER – (Female to play40’s-60’s) Intense, stern housekeeper at the Frankenstein estate. Former lover of Dr. Victor Frankenstein. She keeps the secrets of the past. A great slyly comic role. Requires skilled, dark, dramatic Alto with a real sense of the Berlin Cabaret world of the 1920s and 30s. Solid belt up to B-flat and a workable mix that extends up to E-flat.
INSPECTOR HANS KEMP – (Male to play 40’s-50’s) Head of the police in Transylvania, with a wooden arm and leg. Has a highly developed sense of his own power and a keen desire to keep order in the town. May double as the Blind Hermit.
VICTOR VON FRANKENSTEIN – (Male to play 40’s-50’s) Frederick’s infamous grandfather.
ZIGGY – (Male to play 30’s) Well-intentioned village idiot.
