Any ethnicity. These are the six drag performers who populate The Blue Angel Nightclub. They need to be versatile, but also terrific dancers, singers and actors. Tumbling, acro and tricks a plus. Will be required to dance in heels. May cover principal roles.
Just out of university, a really nice guy who has no clue what to do with the rest of his life. He’s handsome, lovable, but there’s a temper right under the skin. Henpecked by his girlfriend and a little lost. Must have a great rock voice, ability to move and be a strong actor.

Factory manager keeping up traditions. Reserved.
Beautiful, but quirky working class girl who works in the shoe factory. Funny and smart. Terrific comedic actress, with a great singing voice.

Must have a killer voice with power blues and gospel chops. Lola dances in very high heels and so has to move well. Physically challenging role; requiring an incredible performer comfortable wearing everything from full glamour drag to nothing but boxing trunks.
Charlie’s girlfriend since school. Sophisticated looks. She is driven and uncompromising. She knows what she wants and goes for it. Must have a great pop voice. We strongly encourage submissions of BIPOC actresses for this role.
Officious office manager who will let loose her wild side when allowed. Lola's love interest.
