Synopsis
Comedy, drama and horror all come together in John Dempsy and Dana P. Rowe's musical adaptation of THE WITCHES OF EASTWICK.
In the sleepy New England town of Eastwick, our three (not-so-wicked) witches Alexandra Spofford, Sukie Rougemont and Jane Smart are divorcees feeling trapped in their everyday humdrum lives. One stormy night, high on Martinis and brownies, they make a crazy wish - for a man to make their own. But their wish has consequences they could never have dreamed...
"A wickedly funny comedy" - Time Magazine.
"The Audience was spellbound" - The Evening Standard.
"Sends you into the night with a spring in your step and a smile on your face" - London Daily Telegraph.
"Musical comedy Heaven" - London Mail on Sunday.

Parts

Darryl Van Horne - A new comer from New York

Age: 35–50

Vocal Range: Low A- high F#.

The antagonist of the production. Has sex appeal. Has a hypnotic charm and sophistication. Has a hidden agenda. He is the catalyst for the three witches exploring their inner most desires. Excellent comic timing.

 

Alexandra Spofford - A sculptress

Age: 35-45

Vocal Range: Low G-C

A divorcee, Alex is a passionate artist. Her life experience forms the basis of her insecurities and her relationships with the other characters. Has a teenage son – Michael.

 

Jane Smart - A cellist

Age: 25-40

Vocal Range: Low A- high C above the stave

A musician who is reserved and quiet. She has a straight laced appearance but an underlying desire for more passion in her life. Excellent comic timing.

 

Sukie Rougemount - A writer

Age: 25-40

Vocal Range: Low A-E

A journalist who is not focused on her work. Conveniently scatter brained from time to time. Talks faster than she thinks. She is on the shy side and a follower rather than a leader. See’s Jane and Alex as the sisters she never had. Good movement required

 

Felicia Gabriel - Town Gossip and Eastwick's First Lady

Age: 40-55

Vocal Range: Low A- top A optional C

A misplaced sense of importance. Veneer of happiness is always on. Has money and is the self appointed leader of society with an unshakable belief that she knows what is best for Eastwick. Her brand of dictatorship is dispenced with a saccharine sweetness. She takes an instant dislike to Darryl upon his arrival and becomes his nemesis.  She has a teenage daughter – Jennifer

 

Jennifer Gabriel - Felicia's daugher, Michael's girlfriend

Age: Appearance of 18

Vocal Range: Low A - D

Main juvenile lead. Direct opposite of her mother. Complete natural innocence. Her mother is a smothering presence. Accustomed to acting in a certain way to keep her mother happy. Felicia has tried to mould her into a “Barbie” doll for whom she will find the perfect “Ken” – which isn’t going to be Michael.

 

Michael Spofford - Alexandra’s son, Jennifer’s boyfriend

Age: Appearance of 18

Vocal Range: Middle C - top C above the stave

Main juvenile lead. Innocence with a wild edge. He has a non-conformity about him. He has a naivety and sweetness but finds his “cool” later on. Is more a friend to his mother than a son.

 

Clyde Gabriel - Felicia’s Husband

Age: 40-50

A pathetic downtrodden man, who is trapped in a loveless marriage. He’s having an affair with Sukie, yet your sympathy lies with him due to his relationship with Felicia.

 

Fidel - Darryl’s servant

Age: Immaterial

Physical extreme of exotic looks. “Not of this world”
