ANDREW JACKSON | Male, 22-32, Tenor Bb2 - Bb4. A roguish, man's president who is deeply charming and sexy, yet is also an extremely violent, arrogant, bigoted idiot that fights for what he believes in. Must be comfortable shirtless. Must be comfortable getting "bloody"...it's the name of the show.
BLACK FOX | Male, 25-35, Speaking Role. Native American chief who is intelligent and somber with a hint of danger. He used to have an alliance with Jackson.
ENSEMBLE | VARIOUS FRONTIERSMEN, INDIANS, SOLDIERS.
FEMALE SOLOIST | Female, 20-30, Mezzo G3 - B4. Self-confident, attractive singer with powerful, emotive indie rock voice. Dark, mysterious, hip vibe. Can double as other roles.
HENRY CLAY | Male, 28-36, Baritone D3 - A3. An over-the-top, vivacious, tall, cadaverous, and villainous senator with greasy hair who wears weasel pelts. Can double as other roles.
JAMES MONROE | Male, 30-40, Speaking Role. Foppish and overwhelmed old-school President of the United States. Can double as other roles.
JOHN C. CALHOUN | Male, 25-35, Bass B2-F3. A sinister, good-looking, charming, and brilliant gentleman senator from the South who is a vain mastermind. Can double as other roles.

MALE SOLOIST | Male, 18-25, Tenor/Baritone D3-E4. Brooding, intense rocker with powerful, emotive indie rock voice. He is angsty, good-looking, young, and hip. Can double as other roles.
MARTIN VAN BUREN | Male, 25-35, Speaking Role. Jackson's right hand man who is in over his head. He is a well-intentioned buffoon who is utterly lovable. Can double as other roles.

THE STORYTELLER | Female, 35-55, Speaking Role. A milquetoast, oppressively good-natured, history-loving narrator that has not had much excitement in her life. Very strong comedic actor.
