A USO performance from the Andrews Sisters is in jeopardy of cancellation when they fail to appear shortly before curtain. Thankfully, three earnest stagehands are determined to go on with the show! The Andrews Brothers is filled to the brim with 30 songs made famous by The Andrews Sisters and other top artists of the era, including the showstoppers “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree,” “Three Little Sisters,” and “Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive.” Mistaken identities and madcap adventures—imagine Bing Crosby and Bob Hope in a road movie of Some Like It Hot—along with the music of an entire generation highlight this wonderful valentine to the heroes of World War II.
THE ROLES OF MAX & PATRICK ANDREWS HAVE ALREADY BEEN CAST
Lawrence Andrews – 35-55, all ethnicities. Tenor, Bb2-B4. Sits up on G’s and A’s – must be comfortable in high tenor register, and singing in swing style. His Andrews counterpart is LaVerne. He has incredibly poor eyesight, and wears thick glasses. Lawrence is the middle brother, and takes on that role. He is perhaps a little resentful of his older brother, and always ready to crack jokes at his expense. The vast majority of the score is in tight 3- and 4-part harmonies, sung by solo voices with no doubling. Must be able to sing intricate harmonies. Click for audition materials
Peggy Jones – 30-55, all ethnicities. Ab3-Eb5. Smooth swing belter, mezzo/alto. A cross between Betty Hutton and Betty Grable, with the added vocal stylings of Rosemary Clooney & Peggy Lee, Peggy is a WWII pin-up girl, and she longs to show everyone she’s more than just another pretty face. Warm, loving, and sincere. Must be able to sing intricate harmonies. Click for audition materials
