The joint is jumpin’ in this sassy, sultry musical celebration of jazz legend Fats Waller! Winner of three Tony Awards including Best Musical, Ain’t Misbehavin evokes the delightful humor, infectious energy and soul of 1930’s Harlem, the Golden Age of jazz palaces like the Cotton Club, the Savoy Ballroom, and honky tonk dives along Lenox Avenue, where pulsing swing music played all hours of the day.

Seeking a talented and versatile triple-threat cast of five to strut, strum and sing its way through 29 unforgettable favorites including “Honeysuckle Rose,” “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love,” “This Joint Is Jumpin’’’ and “Ain’t Misbehavin’. Breakdown follows:

NELL – Mezzo. Confident and charming. A knowledgeable woman of the world. Range: F3-F5.
ANDRE – Baritone. Handsome and charismatic. An unrepentant party hound. A flirt and a bit of a womanizer. Range: G2-E6.
KEN – Bari-tenor. Jovial, cheerful and larger than life. Charming and effervescent personality. Range: D3-C6.
ARMELIA – Soprano. A voluptuous and sassy woman. Very strong-willed and not afraid to share her thoughts. Range: G3-C6
CHARLAYNE – Mezzo. A sweet and attractive young lady. Very innocent. Range: G3-G5.

Please prepare 32 bars of two songs (up-tempo and ballad), either from the show or other choices of the “Fats Waller style” Blues or Jazz variety from the 20’s or 30’s. There will also be a dance audition, so dress comfortably and appropriately for dance. Please bring your own sheet music in the key you will be singing. No transposing. No tracks permitted. Accompanist provided

Ain’t Misbehavin’ is part of the Broadway Festival of South Florida, July 20-22, 2018, sponsored in part by a grant from Broward County Florida Cultural Tourism Program, and is presented through special arrangement with Music Theater International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
