Seeking:Dion DiMucci: Male; late teens-early 20s. Italian American with Star quality; A teen idol; tough New Yorker with Bronx attitude. Actor must have the chops to handle character believably at the peak of his success, as well at the nadir of his heroin addiction, and coming back through recovery again -- and also the complexities of his relationship with his Bronx Italian mother and father, with whom he maintains an intimate if sometimes tumultuous relationship throughout the story. A great singer in 1950’s DooWop style. Actor must convey a one-of-a-kind singing voice that would go on to have some 50 chart-toppers; a rhythm singer with really great and versatile range -- must sing in a pop/rock style, and be good with vocal harmony. Pop baritone to A4; ability to play guitar (or at least some familiarity with guitar, or willingness to learn) is a big plus. Susan Butterfield: Female, 20’s. A beautiful young girl -- a country girl from Vermont who moves to the Bronx and, knowing no one else in this new neighborhood, she meets Dion. A pure, simple and sweet girl -- smart, stoic and strong. NOT of Italian descent; has a fair complexion, so much so that she stands out to Dion immediately as not being from this Bronx Italian neighborhood; she becomes the love of Dion's life, and his support system through it all. Must be a first class singer who moves very well. Must sing in a pop/rock style, and be good with vocal harmony. Warm folk/pop chest voice (not brassy belt), A3 - C5. Johnny: Male; 20s-40s.

Dion's Bronx Italian-American father; a former Vaudevillian performer himself, he has become a Stage Father and pushes his son’s career.
