AMALIA BALASH– mid – late 20’s. Warmhearted, loving, honest and sincere but also spunky and opinionated. She is anxious and ready for a permanent relationship.  Strong / High Soprano. (strong B-flat at end of “Ice Cream”).

ILONA RITTER– late 20’s-early 30’s. Good looking and sexy, gives the impression of a girl who has “been around” but a real vulnerability is always present. Ready to give her heart, but she always gives it to the wrong man. Some dance/movement a plus.  Character Mezzo/ Belt Voice.

GEORG NOWACK– late 20’s- early 30’s. Easy-going, pleasantly personable, honest and sincere and rather shy but not a “weak” man. Not slick nor smooth with the opposite sex. Ready for a permanent relationship.  Baritone / Bari -Tenor.

STEVEN KODALY– late 20’s – early 30’s. Very handsome, dapper, dashing and charming – and he knows it.! A real “ladies’ man”. Tall leading man is preferred. He is as shallow as he is handsome. Some dance/movement a plus. Strong Bari – Tenor with rich full sound.

SIPOS– 40’s. “Poor Soul” Character man. Conscientious in his job, would never make waves. Cautious and somewhat timid – but very likeable and cheerful.  Character Baritone.

ARPAD– very early 20’s (but looks even younger). Enthusiastic, energetic, eager, forward and indefatigable. Always observant and cheerful. His future will be bright – he wouldn’t have it any other way. Strong youthful sound – Bari -Tenor.

MARACZEK– late 50’s-early 60’s. A businessman who genuinely loves his business and his workers but he can be very difficult and authoritative if he needs to be.  Baritone (not much singing)

FOR THE AUDITION:

Please prepare Standard Broadway songs that show both vocal abilities and a strong “character”. You may sing from the show if you desire, but it is not a requirement. Loesser, Rodgers & Hart, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Bock & Harnick, Adler & Ross, Jerry Herman, Adams & Stouse, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin are all good – but NO ROCK or RAP please.

If you are Called Back for Amalia Balash – please have the end of “Vanilla Ice Cream” prepared.
