***LOCATION CHANGE: She Loves Me auditions will take place at Roger Rocka’s Dinner Theater.***
She Loves Me is a euphoric romantic comedy with a soaring score. Set in a 1930s European perfumery, we meet shop clerks Amalia and Georg who work together, and have disliked each other from the very beginning. He thinks she’s stuck up, and she thinks he’s arrogant and mean. But each rapturously writes to a lonely hearts pen pal when the work day is done, and it doesn’t take long for the audience to see that they’re in love without realizing it. Inevitably – through some of the most iconic songs in the musical theatre canon (“Vanilla Ice Cream”, “She Loves Me”, “Will He Like Me?” – Georg and Amalia discover the truth as well and rejoice in their love for each other at the story’s sweet and musically delightful conclusion. She Loves Me showcases a small but strong ensemble cast playing a range of memorable characters of all ages. Strong comedic skills are a plus. Rated PG.
CAST OF CHARACTERS:
GEORG NOWACK (Male, Bari-Tenor, 21-45) An established employee of Maraczek’s Parfumerie. He is ikeable, intelligent, hard-working, and romantic but is not adept at flirtation. Mr. Maraczek’s right hand man.
AMALIA BALASH (Female, Soprano, 20-40) The eager new employee at Maraczek’s Parfumerie. She quickly abandons all nerves and takes Georg head-on in a battle of wits. She is warm and funny with all but Georg.
ILONA RITTER (Female, Mezzo, 20-35) Employed at Maraczek’s Parfumerie. She is sexy and learned in the ways of romance, but longing for something more from the game of love.
STEVEN KODALY (Male, Tenor, 21-40) Though he is considered dapper and occasionally charming, he is more of a shallow womanizer.
MARACZEK (Male, Baritone, 40-70) Owner of Maraczek’s Parfumerie. He is kind, loyal, and dedicated to his parfumerie and employees. Firm when needed but not without a sense of humor.
ARPAD LASZLO (Male, Bari-Tenor, 14-18) Delivery boy at Maraczek’s Parfumerie. His exuberance is infectious and his commitment to his job is remarkable. He is ambitious and adorable.
LADISLAV SIPOS (Male, Baritone, 40+) A bit of a klutz and a confidant to Georg. He is very aware of the ridiculous situations in which his coworkers often find themselves.
WAITER (Male, Tenor, 35+) An eccentric and over-zealous waiter insistent on creating a romantic atmosphere.
ENSEMBLE (All Ages) The ensemble consists of CUSTOMERS, CAROLERS, BUSBOYS, WAITER, and a P.I.
