Parts available for CHAMBER MUSIC

Women
Mrs. Mozart…a stereotype Jewish mother, lots of “Oy-vey”
Osa Johnson…a big game hunter, tough
Gertrude Stein…very defensive and stutters …is the Secretary (note-taker) for the group,
hates Joan of Arc
Pearl White..ditsy silent movie star
Amelia Earhart…..aviatrix, voice of reason, may actually BE Amelia
Queen Isabella of Spain…..veiled and mute until she lets loose with a big
 monologue about Columbus,  lots of mime work
Joan of Arc….in full regalia, carrying a six foot wooden cross, pouts a lot
Susan B. Anthony….runs things with her gavel, authority figure
2 Men’s parts- short roles (with one appearance each, but a long,
interesting monologue each time). Parts are well worth doing, not
just “walk-ons”.
