My high school is putting on Drood this upcoming fall, and since I'm unfamiliar with the show I had a few questions.
1. What is the range of Jasper? This is the part I would like, so I'm wondering his range. Mostly I've seen him billed as a tenor, but sometimes he's referred to as a baritone. I'm a baritone but am able to sing partly in the tenor range, so depending on where his range is placed I could do it. I was just wondering what his range was.
2. The chairman is the other part I'm considering. He's always billed as a baritone, but I'm wondering if his songs require much musicality or if they're more patter songs. It's my senior year and I want to be able to show off both my singing AND acting, so I was wondering if this part would lend itself to that.
Thanks for your input!
