Show D​escrip​tio​n:

In this hilarious and outlandish story, the lives of six teenagers from a Canadia​n chamber choir are cut short in a freak accident aboard a roller coaster. When they awake in limbo, a mechanical fortune teller invites each to tell a story to win a prize like no other — the chance to return to life. This popular musical is a funny, moving look at what makes a life well-lived! 

Ch​aracter Breakdown:

The Amazing Karnak
Male - 35-50
non-singing role; the narrator; a mechanical fortune-telling machine.

Ocean O’Connell Rosenberg
Female - 18-25
The leader of the group, relentlessly competitive, sometimes cruel, though she sees herself as a virtuous person; high Broadway mix, with a pop quality; big range.

Misha Bachinski
Male - 18-25
adopted from the Ukraine as a teenager; he has thick Ukrainian dialect and a lot of rage; he is obsessed by Gansgsta Rap (an enormous fan of the auto-tune phenomena); there is a hidden, soulful romantic side; Baritenor with the ability to sing lyrical Ukrainian folk music as well rap.

Noel Gruber
Male - 18-25
the only gay kid in Uranium; never had a relationship; obsessed by French New Wave cinema, he has fantasies of dying a tragic death. 

Ricky Potts
Male - 18-25
Begins the play mute due to childhood trauma, but soon discovers that in this purgatory, he has regained his ability to speak his mind. Baritone pop/rock voice.​

Constance Blackwood
Female - 18-25
Insecure and self-loathing. Will do anything for Ocean's friendship and allows herself to be used as a doormat; dubbed "the nicest girl in town," a title she secretly despises. Very likable comic actress; alto belt, with a rock edge.

Jane Doe
Female - 18-25
She was decapitated in the accident and no one claimed her body; even though she isn't headless in the piece. She reacts in a literal way and largely without emotion, almost robot-like; the other contestants are totally freaked out by her. Classically trained soprano with a flexible coloratura upper range, and some grit and meat in the lower register.


Our group of ensemble members will plays various roles. They will support in the flashback moments, as well as create the environment. Circus skills a plus. 

Interested in being involved in the production but don't want to perform? Email and with what areas you would like to assist. You will be required to register for THEA 151. ​
