Nathan Detroit Nathan Detroit is the heart and soul of Guys And Dolls JR. Nathan needn't be a great singer, but should be a very good actor with excellent comic timing and able to handle a sizable role. Nathan's big secret is that he wants to marry Adelaide; he just can't bring himself to admit it. Eb4 - B4
Miss Adelaide Miss Adelaide is the classic "intellectually-challenged floozy." She doesn't need to be a strong singer, but she must have a good sense of pitch. Adelaide needs to be funny and able to do a convincingly thick New York City dialect. A3 - D5
Sky Masterson Sky Masterson is the quintessential, "smooth-as-velvet" Broadway gambler; he's slick and charming. In today's terms he would be called "a player." Sky should have a strong voice capable of owning the stage when delivering "Luck Be a Lady." He has a soft spot for Sarah Brown. Bb3 - D5
Sarah Brown Sarah Brown is the "girl next door" with an adventurous side that's waiting to escape. She is gently authoritative, the mirror opposite of Sky. Sky is her weakness. Sarah is about substance as much as Sky is about style. She should be an excellent actress as well as singer, and must be able to show two distinct sides of herself. Bb3 - E5
Arvide Abernathy Arvide Abernathy is Sarah Brown's grandfather and the bass drum player in the Mission Band. This part can easily be cast as a girl, changing the character to Sarah's grandmother or female relative. Non-singing
Nicely-Nicely Johnson Nicely - Nicely Johnson is walking, talking, Broadway comedy. This should be a performer who has fantastic comic timing and is naturally funny. He (or she) should have the chops to really deliver the showstopper, "Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat." Bb3 - F5
Benny Southstreet Benny Southstreet and Rusty Charlie are the small-time gambler sidekicks of Nicely- Nicely Johnson. These are perfect roles for good actors who are naturally funny. They should be confident singers (they open the show with "The Fugue for Tin Horns") and have a handle on comic timing. Benny has speaking lines throughout. Range: Bb3 - E5
Rusty Charlie Benny Southstreet and Rusty Charlie are the small-time gambler sidekicks of Nicely- Nicely Johnson. They should be confident singers (they open the show with "The Fugue for Tin Horns") and have a handle on comic timing. Rusty Charlie's role is just singing. Range: Bb3 - D5
Harry The Horse Big Jule Harry the Horse and Big Jule are colorful additions to the crapshooters crew. They should be strong and humorous characters. They don't need to be strong singers.
Lt. Brannigan Lt. Brannigan is the police officer that always plays the patsy and is outwitted by the Gamblers. Non-singing
General Cartwright General Cartwright is the formidable leader of the Save-a-Soul Mission organization. Non-singing
Master of Ceremonies The Master of Ceremonies is the host at the Hot Box Club. He has one memorable line, so this is a great role for someone new to the stage. Non-singing
Ensemble Gamblers/ Hot Box Girls/ Mission Band/ Dancers/ Guys & Dolls (some have speaking lines)
