A travelling troupe of two actors and an opera singer arrive by donkey to masterfully, movingly and miraculously enact the greatest story ever told.
Maurice Rose, male 30s - 40s.
Leader of the two-man acting troupe who considers himself as the best actor in the world! Very physical, pacy comedic role.
Ronald Bream, male 20s - 30s.
The '2IC' to the Maurice Rose players acting troupe who has an equally physically demanding, comedic role.
Both male actors play multiple characters in a fast-paced, comedic manner. They will need physical stamina and ability to interact with audience members and learn a large number of lines as they are on stage the whole time.
Ms Leonora Fflyte - female, operatic "diva", any age. Singing experience is essential for this great scene-stealing role!
