Of course!

Roles

Bound! The Musical is a character-driven show, with an ensemble cast of 10 main roles, each with several featured singing opportunities.  Although all roles are binary (male/female), actors identifying as any gender are welcome to apply.

  • JEREMY (male, early-mid 20s, any ethnicity, baritone) Captain of the track-and-field team – The “Wishful Leader” with imposter syndrome: caring; indecisive… until he is pushed to the brink.

  • CAMERON (male, early-mid 20s, any ethnicity, baritone) Star of track-and-field team – The “Confident Charmer” with stars in his eyes: a self-absorbed hotshot … until he opens up to the strength of others.

  • LEWIS (male, early-mid 20s, any ethnicity, baritone or tenor) Reluctant member of track-and-field team – The “Anxious Loyalist” with quiet determination: Overtly insecure… until he discovers the strength he always had.

  • DUSTIN (male, early-mid 20s, any ethnicity, baritone) Casual member of track-and-field team – The “Compulsive Joker” with an innate sense of decency: uses humor to hide from his burden… until he discovers and accepts his repressed sexual identity.

  • ANTONIO (male, late 20s, any ethnicity (pretends to be Italian), baritone) Manager of the athletic team – The “Ego-driven Puppeteer” with an over-bearing mother: blinded by narcissism... until love helps him see the value of another.
