To that end we encourage all actors to audition.
An Equity Monitor will not be provided. The producer will run all aspects of this audition.

IT SHOULDA BEEN YOU
by Barbara Anselmi & Brian Hargrove
12/26/18-2/24/18
NOTE: The Role of Jenny Steinberg and Rebecca Steinberg has already been cast.
JUDY STEINBERG
Mother of the Bride. 50s/60s. She will stop at nothing to get what she wants. She is forceful and domineering, but at heart a kind and loyal person - and a fierce advocate for her friends and family.. She’s also very funny, but not in a jokey way, being one of those people who never realize just how funny they are; Alto/mezzo.
GEORGETTE HOWARD
The Mother-of-the-Groom from hell— uptight, waspy, one of those “ladies who lunch,” with an acerbic wit and fondness for drink - especially gin. She is not happy about her son getting married and her unhappiness is a force to be reckoned with; Alto/mezzo.
BRIAN HOWARD
The Groom. 30. Is going to be a great guy as soon as he grows up, but unfortunately he’s still trying to find himself. That can only happen when he gets out from under the thumbs of his domineering father and manipulating mother, which is one of the reasons he’s getting married today; Tenor with good low notes
ALBERT
The Wedding Planner. 50s/60s. He is a nuptial Houdini, who has seen and done it all before, and who is therefore ready with the solution before anyone else even realizes there’s a problem; Baritone.
REBECCA – REBECCA STEINBERG
The Bride. 30. Is the “perfect daughter”. Unfortunately, wedding jitters are causing her to be emotionally unstable - one minute she’s laughing, the next she’s crying, and sometimes she’s doing both at the same time, which make her seem like a mess; Soprano with a high belt or strong mix on an E.
MARTY KAUFMAN
The Bride's ex-boyfriend. Early 30s. Is the quintessential Jewish boy next door - the kind of young man every mother dreams of for her daughter. If he were any closer to the Steinbergs, he’d be related. Instead, he’s just in love with them. Well one of them in particular.Tenor with a strong Ab.
MURRAY STEINBERG
Father of the Bride. 50s/60s. Loves his wife, loves his daughter - and if he has any negative feelings about this wedding, he would never show them. If this is what his daughter wants, then it’s what he wants for her because he only wants what’s best for his family. Bass/baritone.
GEORGE HOWARD
Father of the Groom. 50s/60s. Is a Master of the Universe who is used to getting his way. His one soft spot is his wife. He loves her and would do anything to make her happy, and does so because she’s got him wrapped around her little finger. It’s almost like he’s two different people - his wife gets the teddy bear and his son, the grizzly; Baritone with good F above middle C.
GREG MADISON
Best Man. 30. If anyone marches to the tune of a different drummer, it’s Greg Madison. He sees the world in a way that no one else does. He’s cute and likable, always means well, and would fight to the death for a friend; Tenor with strong pop styling.
ANNIE SHEPS
Co-Maid of Honor, this character is Non-Caucasian, 30. She is the calm in the storm. An observer who does her best to help where she can, but that doesn’t mean she’s not just as emotionally invested as everyone else. She’s also a strong influence on the wedding party because she’s one of the few who could stand up to Judy Steinberg and tell it like it is.; Mezzo or soprano with strong pop styling.
UNCLE MORTY/WALT
30s/40s/50s. Should be an actor who can play lots of different people believably, (as real people, not caricatures) since along with his female counterpart, (Aunt Sheila/Mildred) this person will also play various wedding guests and hotel employees. The most important role he will play is Uncle Morty - the absent minded Uncle who may or may not be senile, but who is definitely hard of hearing. Baritone with strong high notes.
AUNT SHEILA/MILDRED
30s/40s/50s. Should be an actress who can play lots of different people believably, (as real people, not caricatures) since along with her male counterpart (Uncle Morty/Walt), this person will also play various wedding guests and hotel employees. The most important role she will play is Aunt Sheila - a grabbing clasping woman who is full of spite and jealousy for her sister-in-law, and would love nothing more than to see the whole wedding go up in flames. Mezzo-soprano, belter.

A bank employee of Torvald’s looking to scrape by anyway he can. He will stop at nothing to hold on to his job and make a buck, even if it means blackmail. 40’s/50’s
