The Amazing Karnak: Male presenting - 35-60 - non-singing role; the narrator; a mechanical fortune-telling machine.
Ocean O’Connell Rosenberg: Female presenting - 17/18 - The leader of the group, relentlessly competitive, sometimes cruel, though she sees herself as a virtuous person; high Broadway mix, with a pop quality; big range.
Misha Bachinski: Male presenting - 17/18 - Adopted from the Ukraine as a teenager; he has thick Ukrainian dialect and a lot of rage; he is obsessed with Gansgsta Rap (an enormous fan of the auto-tune phenomena); there is a hidden, soulful romantic side; Baritenor with the ability to sing lyrical Ukrainian folk music as well rap.
Noel Gruber: Male presenting - 17/18 - The only gay kid in Uranium; never had a relationship; obsessed by French New Wave cinema, he has fantasies of dying a tragic death. Must be able to sing in the style of a French chanteuse.
Ricky Potts: Male presenting - 17/18 - Begins the play wordless and on crutches; suffers from a degenerative disease that has left him speechless and mostly immobile; he discovers at the beginning of the play that in this strange purgatory, he has regained all of these abilities. Baritone rock voice; basic accordion and/or tumbling a plus.
Constance Blackwood: Female presenting - 17/18 - Awkward and kind, with a a very deep self-loathing. Will do anything for Ocean's friendship and allows herself to be used as a doormat; dubbed "the nicest girl in town," a title she secretly despises. Very likable comic actress; alto belt, with a rock edge.
Jane Doe: Female presenting - 17/18 - She was decapitated in the accident and no one claimed her body; even though she isn't headless in the piece (but often carries around a headless doll). She reacts in a literal way and largely without emotion, almost robot-like; the other contestants are totally freaked out by her. Classically trained soprano with a flexible coloratura upper range, and some grit and meat in the lower register.
The Uranium Chamber Choir Ensemble/Swing - (2-4) Male or Female representing actors who sing and dance to play members of the choir and swing the other 6 roles in the show. *Will perform in all shows and will cover/swing a principle role.
