NEXT TO NORMAL is the groundbreaking, Tony and Pulitzer prize-winning rock musical that tells the story of a suburban family coping with mental illness. From the outside, the Goodmans are a normal family, but inside, there’s no such thing.

Next to Normal FAQ:

 1. Why do I need to submit a video first?

We have already had many requests for auditions, and as much as we want to meet and audition ALL of you, we just don’t have the time. We’d rather respect your time and ours.

2. What do you want to see from me?

A video showing us YOU. Maybe it’s you singing in a previous show, or you singing at a bar, or you with an accompanist submitting a traditional short audition song. Show us YOU at your best and make us WANT to bring you in for an in-person audition.

a. Should I sing from the show?

For your pre-screen audition, feel free to sing whatever you like – from Next to Normal or not, as long as it’s “in the style of”. If we schedule you for an in-person audition, we’ll ask you to prepare specific songs & sides.

3. I can’t make the audition, can I send in a video?

Sure. We will watch everything we receive.

4. What should I sing? How long should it be?

Sing something in the style of the show, long enough for us to see you make some choices, but not too long. A minute is a good length to shoot for, give or take.

5. How/Where do I submit my video?

Follow the “Video Submission Guidelines” posted at the top of this page.

6. I’m non-union – can I submit?

Of course! Our agreement with AEA means we will see all Equity members without a prescreen. We are asking non-union actors to submit a video because: see question #1.

7. What AEA contract do you work under?

For Next to Normal, we will be employing AEA talent under a Special Appearance agreement, Tier 2: https://www.actorsequity.org/resources/Producers/agreements-and-forms/special-appearance/

8. Do you offer housing?

Unfortunately, except in very specific circumstances, we are not able to offer housing to out-of-town artists. This is also more of a choice, as at TampaRep, we want to offer opportunities to Tampa-based artists as much as possible.

9. Can I sing a capella on my audition video?

No. You’ll be singing with music in the show. Singing without doesn’t show us if you can keep the beat or match pitch.




DIANA GOODMAN (female, any race/ethnicity, 30-50)

A complex and multifaceted character, Diana is strong and resilient, vulnerable and fragile, controlling and manipulative and fiercely protective of her family. She is struggling to come to terms with Gabe’s death, and she is also struggling with her own mental illness. She is a deeply human character who is trying to find her way in the world. Vocal range G below middle C to high G -strong mix to a D.

DAN GOODMAN (male, any race/ethnicity, 30-50)

Dan is a loving and supportive husband who will go to any length to keep up the façade of the “perfect, loving family”. He is exhausted and frustrated, and he sometimes feels like he is losing control of his life while trying to find a way to help Diana. A “good man” who is just trying to do what he thinks is best. Vocal range B below written middle C to high A full voice and to high D flat falsetto.

NATALIE (female, any race/ethnicity, teens/early 20’s)

A bright and talented teenager who feels angry and resentful because she has to be the adult in the family. A young woman trying to find her way in the world, who just wants to lead a life that is “next to normal”. Vocal range G below middle C to high G – strong mix to E flat.

GABRIEL (male, any race/ethnicity, 20s)

DR. MADDEN / DR. FINE (any gender, any race/ethnicity, 30-60)

Two of Diana’s doctors (played by the same actor). Dr. Madden, a psychopharmacologist, is more traditional when it comes to treatment and is less inclined to take his patients suggestions into consideration.

Vocal ranges low A below written middle C to high A flat full voice.

Straight White Men


by Young Jean Lee
director: Emilia Sargent

A provocative and hilarious play by Young Jean Lee (the first female Asian American playwright to be produced on Broadway), STRAIGHT WHITE MEN explores the meaning of privilege and identity in 21st century America. Four adult brothers gather for Christmas at their childhood home, where they are forced to confront their own sense of entitlement and the challenges of being a straight white man in a changing world.

PERSONS IN CHARGE (non-male-identifying, non-white, any age)

Persons in Charge are the creators of this theatre experience. They greet the audience at the beginning and set the stage, literally and figuratively. It is through their eyes that we see this play. We are looking for highly collaborative artists who are intrigued by the idea of interrogating identity and putting straight, white, maleness under a microscope and exploring the positives and negatives. There will be an opportunity for performers to collaborate on their own text as it should be reflective of their true identity.

From the author: Ideally, the people in charge should be played by transgender or non-binary performers (preferably of color), but I’m open to variants depending on circumstances. In no case should actors be cast to perform identities other than their own. Also essential: an abundance of natural charm.

These characters are less “actors” and more “people with an opinion to share”. If you’re interested in being considered, please READ THE FIRST FEW PAGES OF THE SCRIPT, and then send a letter of interest to auditions@tamparep.org

ED (male, white, 60+)

** ROLE IS CAST – POSSIBLE UNDERSTUDIES OR REPLACEMENTS WILL BE CONSIDERED ** A retired engineer who lives in a comfortable house in the suburbs. The father of three adult sons, Ed is a kind and generous man, who is also somewhat out of touch with the world and oblivious to the privilege he enjoys as a straight white man. He can be insensitive to the experiences of others.

MATT (male, white, 30+)

** ROLE IS CAST – POSSIBLE UNDERSTUDIES OR REPLACEMENTS WILL BE CONSIDERED ** The eldest brother, Matt is doing everything “right”, which earns the ire and concern of the rest of his family. A soft-spoken office temp who works at a community-service organization, Matt is kind and compassionate, but he is also withdrawn and insecure. He feels like he doesn’t measure up to his brothers, and he is often afraid to speak his mind.

JAKE (male, white, 30+)

** ROLE IS CAST – POSSIBLE UNDERSTUDIES OR REPLACEMENTS WILL BE CONSIDERED ** The middle brother. Cynical alpha male banker who’s fully cognizant of the unjust system he helps to perpetuate. He is more interested in appearances than in substance, and can be superficial in his relationships with others.

DREW (male, white, 30+)

** ROLE IS CAST – POSSIBLE UNDERSTUDIES OR REPLACEMENTS WILL BE CONSIDERED ** The youngest brother. A smart, self-centered manboy.  A successful writer and professor, Drew is intelligent and articulate, but he can also be arrogant and self-righteous. He is quick to judge others, and he is often condescending to those who are different from him.

The Crucible

At this time, all roles have been cast. Thank you to everyone who expressed interest in the project.


by Arthur Miller
director: Georgia Mallory Guy
co-production with ThinkTank Theatre

TampaRep is once again teaming up with ThinkTank Theatre to present THE CRUCIBLE, by Arthur Miller, a powerful and timely play that explores the dangers of religious extremism, mass hysteria, and the scapegoating of innocent people. Set in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692, the play tells the story of a group of young girls who begin to exhibit strange behavior, claiming to be possessed by the devil. As the hysteria spreads, innocent people are accused of witchcraft and put to death. The Crucible is a thrilling and still unfortunately relevant reminder of the importance of critical thinking and the dangers of blindly following authority.

All Roles are open to diverse and nontraditional casting options. The descriptions listed below are a template for casting and not set parameters. We encourage those interested in a particular role to present the selected sides for the roles. If there is no side provided for the character you are interested in, choose the side that best showcases your skills.

REV. PARRIS (male-identifying, any race/ehthniticy, 40+)

The minister of Salem’s church. Reverend Parris is a paranoid, power-hungry, yet oddly self-pitying figure. Many of the townsfolk, especially John Proctor, dislike him, and Parris is very concerned with building his position in the community.

TITUBA/REBECCA NURSE/FRANCIS NURSE – (female-identifying, POC, 30+)

TITUBA – Reverend Parris’s slave from Barbados. Tituba agrees to perform voodoo at Abigail’s request. She is spiritual and incredibly remorseful of what her ceremony might have awakened in Salem.
REBECCA NURSE – Rebecca is a wise, sensible, and upright woman, held in tremendous regard by most of the Salem community. However, she falls victim to hysteria when the Putnams accuse her of witchcraft and she refuses to confess.
FRANCIS NURSE – A wealthy, influential man in Salem. Nurse is well respected by most people in Salem, but he is an enemy of Thomas Putnam and his wife.

ABIGAIL WILLIAMS/SARA GOOD – (female-identifying, any race/ethnicity, 18-24)

ABIGAIL WILLIAMS – Reverend Parris’s niece. Abigail was once the servant for the Proctor household, but Elizabeth Proctor fired her after she discovered that Abigail was having an affair with her husband, John Proctor. Abigail is smart, wily, a seemingly good liar or thoroughly convicted of her beliefs, and vindictive when crossed.

SARA GOOD – Sarah is a mentally unstable homeless lady whom Abigail accuses of witchcraft. Like Tituba, she’s an easy target because she is on one of the bottom rungs of society.

ANN PUTNAM/MARY WARREN – (female-identifying, any race/ethnicity, 15+, possible Young Artists’ Ensemble casting)

ANN PUTNAM – Thomas Putnam’s wife. Ann Putnam has given birth to eight children, but only Ruth Putnam survived. The other seven died before they were a day old, and Ann is convinced that they were murdered by supernatural means.

MARY WARREN – The servant in the Proctor household and a member of Abigail’s group of girls. She is a timid girl, easily influenced by those around her, who tried unsuccessfully to expose the hoax and ultimately recanted her confession.

THOMAS PUTNAM/EZEKIEL CHEEVER – (male-identifying, any race/ethnicity, 30+)

THOMAS PUTNAM – A wealthy, influential citizen of Salem, Putnam holds a grudge against Francis Nurse for preventing Putnam’s brother-in-law from being elected to the office of minister. He uses the witch trials to increase his own wealth by accusing people of witchcraft and then buying up their land.

EZEKIEL CHEEVER – A man from Salem who acts as clerk of the court during the witch trials. He is upright and determined to do his duty for justice.

JOHN PROCTOR – (male-identifying, any race/ethnicity, late 20’s-late 30’s)

A local farmer who lives just outside town; Elizabeth Proctor’s husband. A stern, harsh-tongued man, John hates hypocrisy. Nevertheless, he has a hidden sin—his affair with Abigail Williams—that proves his downfall. When the hysteria begins, he hesitates to expose Abigail as a fraud because he worries that his secret will be revealed and his good name ruined.

GILES COREY/JUDGE HAWTHORN – (male-identifying, any race/ethnicity, 60+)

GILES COREY – An elderly but feisty farmer in Salem, famous for his tendency to file lawsuits. Giles’s wife, Martha, is accused of witchcraft, and he himself is eventually held in contempt of court and pressed to death with large stones.

JUDGE HAWTHORN – A judge who presides, along with Danforth, over the witch trials.

REV. JOHN HALE – (male-identifying, any race/ethnicity, 30-40)

A minister reputed to be an expert on witchcraft. Reverend Hale is called in to Salem to examine Parris’s daughter Betty. Hale is a committed Christian and hater of witchcraft. His critical mind and intelligence save him from falling into blind fervor. His arrival sets the hysteria in motion, although he later regrets his actions and attempts to save the lives of those accused.

ELIZABETH PROCTOR – (female-identifying, any race/ethnicity, early 20’s-early 30’s)

John Proctor’s wife. Elizabeth fired Abigail when she discovered that her husband was having an affair with Abigail. Elizabeth is supremely virtuous, but often cold. She is good. She’s moral. She’s upright. She’s composed.

JUDGE DANFORTH/MARSHALL HERRICK – (male-identifying, any race/ethnicity, 50+)

JUDGE DANFORTHThe deputy governor of Massachusetts and the presiding judge at the witch trials. Honest and scrupu-lous, at least in his own mind, Danforth is convinced that he is doing right in rooting out witchcraft.

MARSHAL HERRICKThe (police) marshal of Salem.

Jim, p7.1 “One year I simply took off…” to “…no good for what she’s got.” – SIDE 8


An ensemble of excellent actors to play the following roles:

DR. JIM BAYLISS (male-identifying, any race/ethnicity, 30’s-40’s)
Doctor Bayliss is nearing forty. A wry, self-controlled man, an easy talker, but with a wisp of sadness that cling even to his self-effacing humor.A successful doctor, but frustrated with the stifling domesticity of his life. He wants to become a medical researcher but continues in his job as it pays the bills. He is a close friend to the Keller family and spends a lot of time in their back yard.

BERT (male-identifying, any race/ethnicity, 8-14 to play 8)
Bert is a little boy who lives in the neighborhood; he is friends with the Bayliss’ son Tommy and frequently visits the Kellers’ yard to play “jail” with Joe. He appears only twice in the play: the first time, his part seems relatively unimportant, but the second time his character is more important as he sparks a verbal attack from mother when mentioning “jail,” which highlights Joe’s secret.

ALL OTHER ROLES ARE CAST, auditioners may be considered for possible understudy or replacement

JOE KELLER (male-identifying, White, 50’s-60’s)
ROLE IS CAST, auditioners may be considered for possible understudy or replacement
“Keller is nearing sixty. A heavy man of stolid mind and build, a businessman these many years, but with the imprint of the machine-shop worker and boss still upon him. When he reads, when he speaks, when he listens, it is with the terrible concentration of the uneducated man for whom there is still wonder in many commonly known things, a man whose judgments must be dredged out of experience and a peasant-like common sense. A man among men.”
Joe was exonerated after being charged with knowingly shipping defective aircraft engine cylinder heads from his factory to the military during World War II, causing the deaths of 21 pilots. For over three years he has placed the blame on his partner and former neighbor, Steve Deever, although he himself committed the crime. When the truth comes out, Joe justifies his actions by claiming that he did it for his family.

KATE KELLER (female-identifying, any race/ethnicity, mid-40’s-mid-60’s)
ROLE IS CAST, auditioners may be considered for possible understudy or replacement
She is in her early fifties, a woman of uncontrolled inspirations and an overwhelming capacity for love.Kate knows that Joe is guilty but lives in denial while mourning for her older son Larry, who has been “missing in action” for three years. She refuses to believe that Larry is dead and maintains that Ann Deever — who returns for a visit at the request of Larry’s brother Chris — is still “Larry’s girl” and believes that he is coming back.

CHRIS KELLER (male-identifying, any race/ethnicity, 30’s)
ROLE IS CAST, auditioners may be considered for possible understudy or replacement
He is thirty-two; like his father, solidly built, a listener. A man capable of immense affection and loyalty.Chris returned home from World War II two years before the play begins, disturbed by the realization that the world was continuing as if nothing had happened. He has summoned Ann Deever to the Keller house to ask for her hand in marriage, but they’re faced with the obstacle of Kate’s unreasonable conviction that Larry will someday return. Chris idolizes his father, not knowing initially what he has done.

ANN DEEVER (female-identifying, any race/ethnicity, mid-20’s-mid-30’s)
ROLE IS CAST, auditioners may be considered for possible understudy or replacement
Ann is twenty-six, gentle but despite herself capable of holding fast to what she knows.
Ann arrives at the Keller home having shunned her “guilty” father since his imprisonment. Throughout the play, Ann is often referred to as pretty, beautiful, and intelligent-looking and as “Annie”. She had a relationship with Larry Keller before his disappearance and has since moved on because she knows the truth of his fate. She hopes that the Kellers will consent to her marriage to Larry’s brother, Chris, with whom she has corresponded by mail for two years. Ann is the truth-bearer in the play. (Role is cast, seeking possible understudy or replacement)

GEORGE DEEVER (male-identifying, any race/ethnicity, 30’s)
ROLE IS CAST, auditioners may be considered for possible understudy or replacement
George is Chris’ age, but a paler man, now on the edge of his self-restraint. He speaks quietly, as though afraid to find himself screaming.” George is Ann’s older brother: a successful New York lawyer, WWII veteran, and a childhood friend of Chris’s. He initially believed in his father’s guilt, but upon visiting Steve in jail, realizes his innocence and becomes enraged at the Kellers for deceiving him. He returns to save his sister from her marriage to Chris, creating the catalyzing final events.

SUE BAYLISS (female-identifying, any race/ethnicity, 30’s-40’s)
ROLE IS CAST, auditioners may be considered for possible understudy or replacement
She is rounding forty, an overweight woman who fears it.Sue is Jim’s wife: needling and dangerous, but sweet and neighborly. She too is a friend of the Keller family but is secretly resentful of what she sees as Chris’s bad idealistic influence on Jim. Sue confronts Ann about her resentment of Chris in a particularly volatile scene in their backyard.

FRANK LUBEY (male-identifying, any race/ethnicity, 30’s)
ROLE IS CAST, auditioners may be considered for possible understudy or replacement
Frank is thirty-two but balding. A pleasant, opinionated man, uncertain of himself, with a tendency toward peevishness when crossed, but always wanting it pleasant and neighborly.Frank was always one year ahead of the draft, so he never served in World War II, instead staying home to marry George’s former sweetheart, Lydia. He draws up Larry’s horoscope and tells Kate that Larry must still be alive, because the day he died was meant to be his “favorable day”. This strengthens Kate’s faith and makes it much harder for Ann to move on.

LYDIA LUBEY (female-identifying, any race/ethnicity, mid-20’s-mid-30’s)
ROLE IS CAST, auditioners may be considered for possible understudy or replacement
a robust, laughing girl of twenty-­seven.Lydia was George’s love interest before the war; after he went away, she married Frank and they soon had three children. She is a model of peaceful domesticity and lends a much-needed cheerful air to several moments of the play, and a nostalgia to what George “might have had”.
