The Cast List
September 2, 2015

Below is the FINAL cast list for BHS’s fall production of Let’s Get Jaunty! the classic 1937 naval romp with music and lyrics by Cole Porter’s mentally ill half-brother, Jole. I want to stress again that these casting decisions are FINAL and NON-NEGOTIABLE and my office hours are ALWAYS CANCELLED no matter WHAT THE SCHOOL WEBSITE SAYS.

First Mate Cockney Ipswitch – Rodney Harrisburg (congrats!!!)

Ensign Shufflehoofer – Jake Davis

Virginia Sweetface – Candice Lipler

Sick Cabin Boy – Daniel West (sorry!!!)

Detective Edgar T. Shoehorn – Claire Barnes

Mayor of New York – Gary? Greg? The heavy one

FDR – Rodney Harrisburg (congrats!!!)
