6DOT member: Liam is “the pretty one” and the leader of the group. Not the sharpest tool in the shed, but charismatic and accustomed to having people follow him. Has probably never been told ‘no.’ Think Derek Zoolander.
6DOT member: Zac is “the serious one”
6DOT member: Chad is “the thoughtful one” . His catchphrase is “I’m Chad” - be prepared to say this one line in multiple ways.
6DOT member: Nick is “the one with the toque”
6DOT member: Other Liam is “the other one named Liam”
6DOT member: Murray is … “just Murray” . He is anachronistically balding and middle aged, something that is never explained and makes him stick out like a sore thumb from the other band members. He is considerably less suave than his bandmates, always a bit too slow or a bit too loud and his poses are always a little … off. The band’s 6th wheel.
Ducky is an intrepid cub reporter for the Deep Cove Crier, eagerly looking for his big break. He falls hopelessly in love with Caroline Goodness and makes many unsuccessful attempts to win her heart. This character has lots of energy and interaction with the audience, improv skills an asset!
The Beast is a Sasquatch that lives on Mt. Seymour. He is feared but misunderstood, with a range of hobbies such as cooking and music. Strong physical movement will be needed, and the ability to rap would be ideal.
Hunter Green is the “Bad Guy” archetype. Australian accent required! This accent inspires some interesting entrance music. Hunter is, of course, a hunter, set on adding the Beast’s head to his wall of trophies. He is also a real estate developer who wants to flatten and pave Mount Seymour to build condos. He is loud, mean, selfish and angry. Think ‘Gaston’ from “Beauty and the Beast”
Rosenstern & Guildenkrantz
These are the ‘sidekick duo’ archetype. They are sidekicks to Hunter Green, and constantly seek his approval. Neither of them are very bright, or brave. Rosenstern is braver than Guildenkrantz, but not by much.
Jenkins is a detective who just happens to be a horse. Despite his unusual appearance, he is the smartest and most normal character in the production. Tap dancing skill an asset.
Chief is ornery, cranky, and direct, like every TV police chief ever. He runs the local RCMP detachment with his sleeves rolled up, frequently pounding the desk in anger. (“Darn it, Jenkins, we’ve got to find that boy band!”) Tap dancing skill an asset.
Brock is a full-time vollunteer with North Shore Search and Rescue. He enters by rappelling. He speaks in a deadpan, direct delivery - think ‘Puddy’ on “Seinfeld” or ‘Joe Friday’ on “Dragnet”. (“Just the facts, ma’am.”)
There are multiple roles in the ensemble who will participate in musical numbers. Each person cast in the ensemble will likely play mulitiple roles, including deep covers, mounties, a roadie, and a TV announcer
