From the Director

She Loves Me is a musical oozing with charm, romance, and elegance.  We are looking for self-possessed actors who are strong singers (there are no non-singing roles) and confident movers.

Audition Preparation

Please prepare 16-32 bars of any up-tempo showtune and a one to two minute monologue. You must provide your own sheet music in the appropriate key. Dress for dance.

Character Descriptions

Amalia Balash: Lands a job as the newest clerk at Maraczek’s Parfumerie. Quick-witted and clever. Views life through an optimistic and romantic lens. Impulsive and attractive. 20s-early 30s. Vocal range C4-B5. Must be a strong singer.

Georg Nowack: A sweet and smart man. A rock-steady and highly valued clerk at Maraczek’s. His shyness sometimes keeps him from acting upon his considerable romantic notions. 20s-early 30s. Vocal range B2-F4.

Ilona Ritter: Employed at Maraczek's Parfumerie. She is self-assured, sexy and direct. Becoming a bit disillusioned about love. 20s-30s. Vocal range F#3-E5. Strong dancer.

Ladislav Sipos: Like everybody’s favorite uncle. Friendly and trustworthy. A long-time, though not outstanding, employee at Maraczek’s. 30s-50s. Vocal range A2-E4.

Steven Kodaly: Smooth talking, stylish, and successful clerk at Maraczek’s. Something of a ladies man. A little oily. 20s-30s. Vocal range B2-A4. Good dancer.

Head Waiter: The prim and frazzled man in charge at Café Imperiale. He strives to provide a “romantic atmosphere” for his customers. Strong comedic timing a must. Will double in ensemble. Vocal range C3-F4.
