Character Breakdown for I Do!, I Do!

  • MICHAEL (20’s-50’s, any ethnicity) An occasionally overbearing, vaguely chauvinistic writer. An egotist who adores his wife, Agnes. Character ages 50 years over course of the story. Given this wide age range, actors in their 20’s to 50’s will be considered. Ability to play life experiences across the age continuum is more important than biological age. Seeking a strong actor with impeccable comic timing, dynamic singing voice and basic dance ability; a charismatic performer capable of carrying a two-person musical.
  • AGNES (Female, 20’s-50’s, any ethnicity) Soft but independent woman, the romantic yet practical wife of Michael. She can hold her own. Character ages 50 years over course of the story. Given this wide age range, actors in their 20’s to 50’s will be considered. Ability to play life experiences across the age continuum is more important than biological age.
