Cast Breakdown

Claude: Baritone/Tenor - Boy next door, drafted to war.  Loved by all.  Internally tortured by having to choose between what his heart believes is right, and his fear of authority.

 

Sheila: Mezzo-Soprano/Alto - Young college student and passionate protester.  Wants to change the world and spread love.

 

Berger: Tenor - Tribe leader.  Charismatic enough to start a cult.  Animalistic, unrestrained, and dedicated to dismantling the system.

 

Dionne: Mezzo-Soprano Belt – Black - Fun, outspoken, and witty.  A constant force/anchor for the tribe and the audience.

 

Woof: Baritone/Tenor - An accidental comedian with chaotic energy. Expresses an unapologetic and all-inclusive sexual energy. 

 

Jeanie: Alto - Pregnant with the tribe's baby, and mother to the tribe.  Silly but wise.  A follower who has tried every drug under the sun.

 

Hud: Baritone/Tenor – Black - Larger than life personality, quick thinking and high energy. 

 

Crissy: Mezzo-Soprano - An innocent and vulnerable space cadet. Easily influenced, looks up to Sheila and the rest of the tribe. 

 

The Tribe: various solo parts - Energetic, creative, with a ton of heart and passion.
