Region: Eastern

Seeking:Four Male Dancer-Singers: Male, 18+, who act; consummate dancer-singers with excellent technical facility, athleticism, strength and rhythmic precision. Particular interested in gymnastic and tumbling skills! Must all sing extremely well. African American, Latino, Latinx, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, and Asian performers strongly encouraged to attend. (one of these tracks will play a gambler and also a hot box dancer). Female Dancer-Singer: 18+, a star dancer with great presence and personality, who also sings well with consummate facility and technique, ala Paula Kelly, Ann Reinking, Juliet Prowse, Judith Jameson. African American, Latino, LatinX, Hispanic, Middle Eastern and Asian performers strongly encouraged to attend. Actor Singers and Triple Threat Actor Singer Dancers: Males & Females, 18+, should have excellent facility with language, as "Guys and Dolls" is written in the aspirational patois of Gamblers, Gangsters, Ne'er Do wells, Dance Hall girls, Show People, First Generation Immigrants and the working class of Melting Pot New York who often speak in what they believe is refined language that aspires to class ascendancy and acceptance. They, like all New Yorkers strive to be the "First, Best, and World Class" versions of anything and everything they do, be they Hot Box Dancer, Mission Doll, or petty Gambler. Not unlike the Dick Tracy Comic strip characters, some of the characters should have outsize or unusual physical characteristics that would earn them their given nicknames, in order to create the world of outsiders, hustlers, misfits, first/second generation immigrants that flavor, the fast talking, sexy, energetic, surprising, sensual, unpredictable and pungent Broadway/Ruyonland/Melting Pot that has made "Guys and Dolls" classic and beloved. Always working an angle or at some kind of work, these are the Men and Women of New York between the wars who aspire to the American Dream but are denied because of the way they speak, or look or where they are from so when fate, the establishment and the upper class deny them access, just like the Marx Brothers, WC FIelds, Bert Williams, the Gershwins, Ellington, Blake, Waller, Puente, Tizol and Arnaz they achieve world class renown in their arena by conning, gambling, betting, stripping, entertaining, singing and dancing... and they get a bit of their own back in the process! Full Company will do some dancing. Bravura Dance is an essential element in the world of "Guys and Dolls." Vocal Needs:"Guys and Dolls" is big voices full throttle Broadway musical where the singing as an intersection of Broadway Tin Pan Alley clarion/honk and belt, anointed luscious legit singing and the rhythmically infallible swing of the Best Jazz music! The collective company sound moves nimbly between all three ideas.
