Something For The Buoys: A Musical Comedy
Produced by Sapling Productions in association with Bygone Theatre and Larry Silverberg
Written and Directed by Eli Pasic
Musical Direction by Jackson Seib
Choreography by Michele Shuster

PLOT SYNOPSIS—A starry-eyed sailor named Jimmy sneaks ashore with his best pal Larry, desperately determined to find a girl and fall in love before his cranky, Alka-Seltzer-addicted captain catches him! (Realism at its finest.)


JIMMY (20s): A starry-eyed sailor who wants to fall in love; baritone (A2 to F#4); strong dance is an asset

LARRY (20s): Jimmy's womanizing best pal from the Bronx; baritone (B2 to F4); strong physicality and movement

CAPTAIN (40s-60s): A cranky captain with an Alka-Seltzer addiction; seventy-three notes away from being a non-singing role (A#2 to Db4); strong physicality and movement

SARAH (20s): A wide-eyed ingénue who dreams of Broadway stardom; mezzo-soprano (Bb3 to F5); strong dance is an asset

BETTY (20s): Sarah's uptight best friend from Brooklyn; alto (B3 to D5); strong dance is an asset

DORIS (40s-60s): A crusty, outspoken grande dame of striptease; alto (G#3 to Db5); strong physicality and movement

TWO SAILORS (20s): ensemble; vocal range—as many notes as possible; strong dance is an asset
