What:
Auditions for a the new Gallery of Heroes musical The Next Galileo

Who:
Five actors/singers ages 18+ (non-Equity only.)

Gabriella: An inquisitive, imaginative, and smart 13-year girl with an intense interest in astronomy, but a fear of speaking up lest she be labeled “weird” by her classmates. Faced with the challenge of presenting a major project at the science fair, Gabriella falls back in time to help Galileo with his initial telescopic discoveries. Along the way she convinces Galileo to stick to his work despite the challenges and gains the confidence to follow her dream of being the next Galileo. Vocal Range: Bright, MT Mix/High Belt (to D5), Range G3-F5*

Galileo Galilei: An outspoken, irreverent scientist and teacher who challenges the status quo.

He doesn’t hesitate to defend his point of view and becomes a good friend and teacher to Gabriella. Vocal Range: Baritone G2-G4*

Woman 1: Versatile actress who plays multiple roles including: Miss Collins, a nurturing 7th grade science teacher; Ludovico, a boisterous and light-hearted painter and friend of Galileo; and a lady to the queen of France. Vocal Range: F3-E5 (with high mix or belt up to D5 a plus)*

Man 1: Versatile actor who plays various roles including: Cesare Cremonini, a stickler for following the writings and rules of Aristotle and also Galileo’s rival at the University of Padua; Christopher, a “know-it-all” 7th grade student; and the Doge of Venice. Vocal Range: Baritone G2-F4*

Man 2: Versatile actor who plays various roles including: Louis, an “eager-to-please” 7th grade student; Hans Lippershey, the Dutch inventor; Vincenzo Galilei (Galileo’s father); a navy commander; and various citizens of Europe (facility with accents a plus). Vocal Range A2-F4*
