Gabriel John Utterson
Male 18+, appears 30+. Vocal Range: B2-F#4 (Violence, heights)
John is Jekyll’s best friend, confidant, lawyer, and supporter. He is an upstanding man, regarded well by his peers but has an underlying humor. He is a gentleman; however, he has a secret gambling problem. Jekyll is his client and friend; they have an ease when together. He holds himself with bearing and decorum.
Sir Danvers Carew
Male 18+, appears 45+. Vocal Range: C3-F#4 (His duet with Emma is cut from this production) (Violence)
Sir Danvers is a genial man, who has no need to prove his standing in society or his influence over others. Chairman of the Board at St Jude’s Hospital. Knighted. Highly protective of his beloved daughter Emma but gives her independence unusual for the period.
Male appears 50+
A catatonic patient in a mental hospital. Member of the Ensemble.
Henry Jekyll/Edward Hyde
Male 18+, appears 30+. Vocal Range: Bb2-A4. (Violence, intimacy, heights)
Henry Jekyll is a tenacious doctor who experiments on himself to separate good and evil, creating his alter-ego, Edward Hyde. He is engaged to Emma Carew. Both Henry and Edward develop very different relationships with Lucy Harris.
This is a physically, emotionally, and vocally demanding role. We are specifically looking for an actor with consistency, stamina, and resilience.
Male 18+. G4-A2 (His duet with Emma is cut from this production) (Violence)
The Secretary of the Board of Governors of St Jude’s Hospital. A man who was born into wealth and who believes that his status and money should be able to get him anything he wants, including Jekyll’s fiancée, Emma.
Female appears 40+. Vocal Range: G3-E5 (Violence)
She has great regard for herself and her own self-importance. Not particularly nice but likely to be on every society guest list. She especially enjoys her jewels – pearls, diamonds etc. Is accepted in a man’s world in a way Emma will never be, because of her vices and widowhood.
Bishop of Basingstoke
Male appears 40+. Vocal Range: C#3-G4. (Violence, intimacy)
A man of the cloth. Likely on the board to make sure that religious strictures are placed upon the development of medicine. Outwardly, a man of God – making sure everyone knows what a ‘do-gooder’ he is. However, he has a penchant for prostitutes. This character is particularly sleazy.
Male appears 40+. (Violence)
Titled from birth, he is a bit of a dandy. Likely would be first to be seen with the newest fashions and slightly “overdone” in the clothing department.
General Lord Glossop
Male appears 40+. Vocal Range: G#3-G4. (Violence)
Typical military man. He is pompous, exacting and probably was a paper pusher rather than has actually seen any front-line fighting in his time. Overbearing and full of his own self-importance. Again, believes he is an upstanding member of society but enjoys the vices that title and money enable him to enjoy. A bully. Uses a cane from a war injury.
Sir Archibald Proops
Male appears 40+. (Violence)
A Q.C. and government official. Busy man, “quick and methodical”, likely equates everything to its relevance to the law. He would be the guiding force on the board of governors in terms of what is lawful, so would be quick to quash anything that he deemed ill-advised.
Male 18+. (Violence)
Has a difficult job and little patience for it. A member of the Ensemble.
Female 18+ appears to be in her 20s or 30s. Vocal Range: A3-C6. (Violence, intimacy)
The graceful, elegant daughter of Sir Danvers, with spirit and joy of life. She has her own mind and is slightly headstrong. In Jekyll’s company, she shows great love and has an easy, fun, and flirty manner around him. She genuinely respects him but is the driving force in their relationship and likely initiated their courtship.
Female 18+ appears to be 16-35. Vocal Range: G#3-F#5. (Violence, intimacy, heights)
Lucy is a prostitute. She takes things as they come, knowing that there is little better life for her, although she does dream there is. To Lucy, Jekyll is an ideal, something she will never have. Hyde is what life tells her she deserves. Like every character in the show, she has a facade.
This is a physically, emotionally, and vocally demanding role. We are specifically looking for an actress with stamina and resilience.
Female 18+, appears 30+. (Intimacy)
Nellie is a “baiter” and prostitute’s abbess. Good at her job. Not sympathetic to the prostitutes of the Red Rat even if she remembers what it was like for her.
The character could present as male, female, or non-binary 18+. (Scene with Lucy is cut from this production) (Violence, intimacy)
Cold, calculating, and cruel, they sell a number of vices, as the front-of-house business of the Red Rat under Nellie’s eye. Spider runs the back-of-house prostitution business. Perhaps the only character in the show with no facade. While some of their dialogue is cut, Spider will be included as Spider in more scenes/songs than the script usually dictates.
Male, middle-aged, or older.
Jekyll’s butler, discrete. Also a member of the Ensemble.
Apothecary. Also a member of the Ensemble.
Male appears 12-16. Vocal range: A3-G4 Also a member of the Ensemble.
People of London
Open to 18+ years of age. (Can include violence and/or intimacy)
The ensemble portrays aristocrats, street people, prostitutes, valets, ladies’ maids, chaperones, society guests, policemen, customers, journalists, and clergy.
*All roles are open to performers of any race, nationality, and ethnicity. Performers with a diversity of looks, body types, and physical abilities are strongly encouraged to audition.
