CHARACTER BREAKDOWN

ALL ROLES AVAILABLE

This is a true ensemble show. All performers except for “Father” will be featured throughout as Storytellers and need to be able to sing and move well. A willingness to experiment creatively is a must. This production will be interpretive and surreal for those performers seeking a unique and rewarding challenge. All Principal and Chorus roles will be understudied.

Father (Male, 35-65):
An older looking, impressive man. A true father figure, he wants the best for all of his children but parents with a firm hand. Protective, loving, and reminiscent of God. Vocal range top: G3-A5

Adam / Noah (Male, 25-30): Adam is Eve’s bright and childlike partner. He is initially devout to Father and loving to his wife & children. Later plagued by guilt. Hard-working and reserved. Noah is rough but simple. He is unsophisticated and shrewd, but also warm and loyal. He builds the ark to save his family and honor Father. Vocal range top: A3-A5

Eve / Mama (Female, 25-35): Eve is curious and questioning, smart and excited. Chose an imperfect life of knowledge over a perfect life of innocence. Mama is Noah’s wife and inherently motherly. She possesses a gentle strength, is reassuring, and serves as the mediator of the family. Vocal range: G3-A5

Cain / Japheth (Male, 18-25): Cain is Abel’s older, adventurous brother. Follows in his mother’s footsteps and longs for the companionship of other humans. He is strong, stubborn, and independent. Japeth is in love with Yonah and is willing to sacrifice his life to be with her. He is Noah’s youngest son. Clever, rebellious, stubborn. Vocal range: B3-A5

Abel / Ham (Male, 18-30): Abel is Cain’s younger and more conservative brother who follows the “rules”. He chooses his parents over Cain. Ham is Japeth’s middle brother and Aphra’s husband. He is not as docile as Japheth, nor as hot headed as Shem. Looks up to and follows Shem’s lead. Vocal range: B3-G5

Yonah (Female, 18-30): Noah’s servant who falls in love with Japheth and becomes his wife. A descendant of Cain. She is strong, yet humble, kind, and smart. Vocal range: G3-G5

Seth/Shem (Male, 20-30): Seth is Adam and Eve’s third son and their family’s second chance at life. He is innocently adventurous. Shem is the oldest of Noah’s three sons. Married to Aysha, he is impulsive, strong, and hot-tempered. Vocal range: B3-E5

Aphra (Female, 20-30): Ham’s pregnant wife. Longs for the flood to be over and is constantly worrying. Vocal range: B3-E5

Aysha (Female, 20-30): Shem’s wife. Cynically bitter and constantly accusing those aboard the ark. Vocal range: B3-E5

Storytellers (all ages and genders): multiple soloists and featured dancers will be selected from the Storytellers
