**All roles are available.**
Eddie Carbone – Male – 40 – 55 a longshoreman; proud, stubborn, passionate, impulsive; powerful; masculine and virile, but feeling for the first time his own oncoming age and the looming specter of his diminishing power; when he finds himself in circumstances he cannot control he doesn't hesitate to use force to gain the upper hand; extremely protective of what is his especially when it comes to his young niece; increasingly unable to separate reality from fantasy, giving himself the permission to go to great even violent lengths; a fierce temper.
Beatrice Carbone – Female – 40 – 50 Eddie's wife; big-hearted and generous, she cares deeply for those around her; loyal, perceptive and loving she is very concerned by her husband’s growing physical and emotional distance from her; though her emotions may run as deeply as everyone else’s, she doesn't have the luxury of letting them show and attempts to exercise her power in other, more subtle ways; she sees her relationship with her husband and her family deteriorating before her eyes. She is anxious to repair the situation any way she can.
Catherine Carbone – Female – early 20’s to play 17 Eddie and Beatrice's niece, who lives with them; alluring, charming; a bright spirit; Eddie's overbearing pampering has kept her in a state of arrested development, but she’s begun to come into her own, and is constantly testing the boundaries between being a girl and a grown woman; both excited by and fearful of the outside world; anxious to grow up and make her own life, but frightened of invoking her uncles fearsome wrath; doesn't fully understand the darker side of her uncle's affection for her until it is too late.
Rudolpho – Male – 20 – 30 – Italian accent a young Italian immigrant; blond-haired Sicilian; handsome, charming, dashing; masculine and confident; charismatic; enchanted by the romance of America, and has loftier dreams than being a longshoreman; creative and unconventional; stands out in a world where he’s supposed to live in the shadows.

Louis – Male – 20 – 35 A longshoreman and friend of Eddie's. He looks up to Eddie. He is part of the community in Red Hook; working class, with a rough-hewn sense of humor; exchanges easy and colorful banter with Eddie about the goings-on at the docks. Seeking actors with sharp sense of comedy.
First Immigration Officer – Male – 30 – 49 no nonsense; born and bred in Red Hook, he knows this neighborhood and the people who inhabit it like the back of his hand. Steeliness. A man of size, he has a real command when entering a room, like a supernatural force of nature.

I thought I would only get dance jobs for shows on the Strip, but was happy to see gigs for cruise ships and conventions and trade shows too!
