> The Dollar Princess is an English production of the original 1907
> German operetta, Die Dollarprinzessin. "Dollar Princess" refers to
> the American heiresses of the time whose wealth allowed them to
> marry into aristocratic families in England and Europe. The operetta
> tells the story of an immensely wealthy American brother and sister,
> Harry and Alice Conder, and the complications that money can cause
> in finding true love.
> We are seeking a tenor for the role of Freddy Fairfax, the young
> Englishman (vocal range B2 - A4), escaping both from his dreary
> family desk job and Olga, a music hall artiste (a Lion Queen) with
> whom he has been romantically entangled. He likes strong, edgy women
> but wants to be with one of the right social class and who will let
> him be a strong man. He falls for Alice, (the Dollar Princess of the
> title) but both are too hard-nosed to be the first to confess their
> love for each other. Troubles ensue when Olga appears on the scene,
> posing as an aristocratic countess.
> Preliminary version of performing edition online: http://home.comcast.net/~dollarp
> We have an excellent cast and can promise a good time and strong
> quality performances.
> Thank you!!!
