Sir Percy Blakeney: (Also Grappin and the Scarlet Pimpernel): character actor meets leading man, tenor – Bb3 – Ab5, a master of disguise, takes on multiple personae to help save doomed aristocrats from the guillotine; strong, courageous when he consults with the league and plans daring escapes, but more frequent disguise – used to put everyone off the scent – is the foolish, foppish nitwit, obsessed with men’s fashion and little else.
Marguerite St. Just: mezzo/belter – G3-F5, beautiful, magnetic, a charming French actress married to Sir Percy; spurns the blackmail-tainted advances of her former lover, Chauvelin, yet struggles to understand why her husband treats her differently after marriage. French accent preferred.
Chauvelin: baritone – A3 –Bb5, a suave, fox-like villain determined to discover the true identity of the Scarlet Pimpernel and send him to the guillotine; assistant to Robespierre, instrumental in doling out punishment to those Sir Percy is attempting to save; in love with Marguerite, uses persuasion/blackmail to ensnare her into spying on his behalf.
Armand St. Just: tenor – D3=Bb5, Marguerite’s headstrong younger brother who quickly becomes a member of the league of The Scarlet Pimpernel.
Ozzy, Ben, Farleigh, Elton, Dewhurst, Hal: tenor-baritone, Sir Percy’s loyal band of merry men – aristocrats who conceal their identities by being flamboyant fashion fops – debonair and deliciously hilarious.
Other roles: Marie, Robespierre, Prince of Wales, Tussaud, St. Cyr, Messier, Jessup, and plenty of ensemble roles who participate in the many glamorous chorus numbers!
Sheet music will be available at the audition for those invited to call backs!
SGMT AUDITIONS: The audition is one of the most important processes in any theater organization as great productions start with great performers. Our goal is to find the performers who best fit the requirements of each role and can take direction in order to deliver their best possible performance on stage. Here are a few reasons why you should consider auditioning for an SGMT show:
1. SGMT auditions are truly “open auditions.” Other organizations both professional and non-professional are looking for equity-actors, performers with long resumes, and even engage in recruiting in-house stock companies or pre-casting. SGMT is one of the few theaters in southern Utah that conducts true open auditions to any and all parties who are interested. We also have strict policies regarding production team auditors and auditioners to avoid any conflict of interest.
2. SGMT performers are all equal. All performers at SGMT donate their time and talent and yet we continually get exceptionally dedicated individuals because of the fun, professional and family environment we try to create and maintain.
3. SGMT demands high standards. We understand that great theater is not easy. Just because we are a “community theater” doesn’t mean that we can’t set high standards for ourselves and we know that our performers will have the best experience when excellence is demanded in rehearsal and on-stage. Many of our SGMT alumni over the past 20 years have gone on to amazing professional careers in theater and they often attribute their passion and exceptional craft to what they learned at SGMT.
4. SGMT strives to develop and nurture talent. Everyone who loves performing had to start somewhere and we want to provide opportunities for performers at all levels of skill and experience. In our intimate “theater-in-the-round” there truly are no “small roles.” Every cast member is important! What are you waiting for? SGMT needs YOU!
