THE LEGEND OF GEORGIA MCBRIDE
CASEY / GEORGIA (mid-late 20s) Caucasian, Southern.
Casey: Charismatic and good-looking small-town high school football star turned Elvis impersonator; has the biggest of hearts and loves his wife ferociously; dreams big, if not always practically; his charm and optimism are infectious; hasn’t had to grow up and take real responsibility for his life/family just yet; an artist who hasn’t yet found his voice.
Georgia: A wholly original drag queen with Elvis, country and rock 'n' roll roots; gritty, edgy, sexy, a force of nature; a transcendent artist who inspires her audiences to dream of a better life; vulnerable, driven, responsible, and completely self-possessed; joyous and thrilling. Note: Role requires dancing in heels, lip syncing, singing and playing guitar.
TRACY (mid-late 40s) Male, any ethnicity, southern. Sweet-natured drag queen, and drag mother to Casey; her impeccable timing, wit, and charm can disarm anyone; deeply nurturing by nature, she thrives on being a mentor, but is ruthlessly pragmatic when she needs to be; ready to find a home and build something meaningful and lasting; equal parts inspiration and desperation. Role requires dancing in heels and lip syncing.
JO (mid-late 20s) Female, African-American. Casey’s wife; a hard-headed woman married to a soft-hearted man; a realist who’s prone to being fatalistic, she grounds him, while he enables her to breathe and dream; tough without being bitchy, firm without being brittle; a steel rod for a spine; she loves him deeply and he’s the only person she feels safe showing her vulnerability to; works multiple service jobs struggling to keep them afloat and it’s taken a toll.
JASON / REXY (mid 20s-mid 30s) Male, non-Caucasian, southern.
Rexy: fabulously fierce and feisty sharp tongued queen with a dark past; a trashy gal who fancies herself the most sophisticated in the room; loves boys and booze and thrives on conflict; a bit of a hot mess; can cut to the bone with her words; an unlikely moral compass with great respect for the history and art of drag.
Jason: Casey & Jo’s best friend and landlord; a sweet-natured working class guy; became a father young, henpecked at home, can sometimes be a bit spineless--but loves his friends dearly; capable of surprising insight and warmth. Note: Role requires dancing in heels and lip syncing.
EDDIE (50-69) Male, any ethnicity, southern. Easily flustered and financially-desperate owner of a struggling dive bar; rough around the edges, a bit of a walking ulcer, but a huge heart; ferociously loyal and loving to his makeshift family; a man of simple tastes and simple needs, he doesn’t take naturally to the stage as an emcee--but eventually becomes an amateur showman who loves the spotlight.
