Emcee (age 20+): an androgynous, sexual entertainer who embodies Berlin in the 1930s. Seeking a superb actor/singer/dancer.
Sally Bowles (age 20’s-30’s): English, a charming, slightly manic nightclub singer with a faint aura of desperation. Seeking an actress who sings and dances well.
Cliff (age 20’s-30’s): from Harrisburg, PA, a handsome writer, briefly infatuated with the decadent glamour of pre-war Germany. At his core is a naive and tender romantic. Seeking an actor who sings well.
Ernst (age 20’s-30‘s): German, an amiable, fairly nondescript looking friend of Sally and Cliff. In many ways the last person one would expect to join the Nazi party making his transformation all the more chilling. Seeking an actor who sings.
Fraulein Kost (age 25-40): A blowsy, German prostitute working (not terribly discretely) out of Fraulein Schneiders boarding house. Seeking a comic actress who sings and dances very well. Also doubles as a Kit Kat Girl Fritzie.
Fraulein Schneider (age 50+): German, the owner of Sally and Cliff’s boarding house. A genteel, impoverished, middle-class woman, frightened by the Nazis, and ultimately too weak to stand against them. There is a hint of fading European glamour to her. Seeking an actress who sings very well.
Herr Schultz (age 50+): German-Jewish, a warm, wise and funny middle-class man. He is helpless in the face of the quickly crumbling Germany around him. Seeking an actor who sings.
