Character Breakdown

Jerry Lukowski: An unemployed mill worker, fighting to maintain his pride and the custody of his only son. All-American jock and the definitive man’s man. Spontaneous. Very prideful. Male, 30-40 yrs old Range: C4 – D6

Pam Lukowski: Jerry’s estranged wife and high school sweetheart. She wants what is best for her son. Strong business woman, but also compassionate and motherly. Female, 25-35 yrs old Range: B3 – A5

Nathan Lukowski: Jerry and Pam’s young son 12 years old going on forty, but young-looking for his age. Nathan can be stoic, sincere, and charming, but ultimately real as he deals with his parents’ custody battle. The movie is Rated R for language and differs from the play in significant ways. The script for the play is available from the library, book stores, or you can contact us directly for a perusal. Nathan sees and hears adult-themed content and, critically, drops the f-bomb (says “f**k” once – no exceptions). This role is strictly for a young male performer: no girls auditioning as boys.

Dave Bukatinsky: Jerry’s best friend and fellow unemployed mill worker. Very much a man’s man, but more of a follower than leader. The definitive sidekick. Prideful. Self-conscious about his size. Male, 30-40 yrs old Range: C4 – E6

Georgie Bukatinsky: Dave’s wife. She loves her husband, and worries about him. Loud, outgoing and brash. She is the “leader” of her group of girlfriends. Female, 30-40 yrs old Range: G3 – A5

Harold Nichols:  An unemployed supervisor at the mill. Hot Metal’s choreographer. Thinks his worth comes from providing for his wife, so he hides his unemployment from her. Male, 35-45 yrs old Range: B3 – A5

Vicki Nichols:  Harold’s wife. She enjoys the finer things in life. Loves her husband more than anything, and supports him no matter what. Female, 30-40 yrs old Range: G3 – A5

Malcolm Macgregor:  An unemployed mill worker. Lives at home with his mother. Depressed, suicidal, awkward, and feeble. Pigeon-chested. Finds comfort in Ethan. Male, 25-35 yrs old Range: C4 – E6

Ethan Girard:  An unemployed mill worker. Lonely. Has a blind determination and confidence to succeed. Finds company with Malcolm. Male, 25-35 yrs old Range: D3 – A5

Noah “Horse” T. Simmons:  A retired mill worker. Embarrassed about being an “average sized” Black man. Despite being old and slow when walking, he still has explosive dance moves. Frequently grumpy. Male, 50-60 yrs old Range: F2 – B5

Jeanette Burmeister:  A piano player of indeterminate years and show-business pro. Sassy, quick-witted, and larger than life. Has slowed down in recent years. Female, 65-75 yrs old Range: F4 – B5

Buddy ‘Keno’ Walsh: Male, 21-32: handsome and experienced gay male stripper; should be in excellent physical shape and very comfortable with his body

Ensemble of approximately 5 women and 5 men to play various roles including, but not limited to, the following:

Joanie Lish: Female, 28-40: friend of Georgie and Pam, blue-collar, fun, sassy, noisy, can be any ethnicity

Susan Hershey: Female, 35-50: friend of Georgie and Pam, blue-collar, the slightly older gal at work who loves to grab a beer with the girls before she heads home

Estelle Genovese: Jerry’s new girlfriend…the youngest, and decidedly sluttiest of the bunch,  a hottie in a funny and trashy way

Molly MacGregor: Female, 35-70 (any age to play a wide range) Malcolm’s frail mom and also an assortment of women (all working class) friends to Georgie and Estelle

Teddy Slaughter: Pam’s live-in boyfriend, every bit as good looking as Jerry, but his collar is “whiter” and he has a job; honestly cares for Pam and Nathan

Reg Willoughby: Male, 40-59: gruff union leader, plays an assortment of characters throughout including Police Sergeant, Tony Giordano, etc.

Marty/Minister: Male, 40-59: unsuccessful stripper, minister at Molly’s funeral, an assortment of characters throughout
