THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN
Book & Lyrics by Gordon Leary
Music by Julia Meinwald
Directed by TBA
Choreographed by Duane Lee Holland Jr.
Developed in Flint Rep’s 2019 New Works Festival
Rehearsals: February 28 - March 30, 2023
Performances: March 31 - April 16, 2023
World premiere musical about the 1996 U.S. Women’s Olympic Gymnastics Team.
[AMANDA BORDEN] Female, 19. White. From Cincinnati, Ohio. Captain of the US team. Perky, positive, All-American. Narrowly missed being on the 1992 Olympic team and she wants to make the most of this time around. [G3-F#5]
[AMY CHOW] Female, 18. Chinese-American. From San Jose, California. Multi-talented, she’s also a competitive diver and a piano prodigy, but she’s unbothered by it all. Quietly self-assured. [G3-E5]
[DOMINIQUE DAWES] Female, 19. African-American. From Silver Spring, Maryland. Calm, warm, and poised. She is supremely talented but has often fumbled in major international competitions, though she hopes to break that streak in her second trip to the Olympics. (The first black gymnast from any country to win Olympic gold.) [F3-E5]
[SHANNON MILLER] Female, 19. White. From Edmond, Oklahoma. The most decorated American gymnast of all time. She is confident - bordering on cocky - but wouldn’t you be if you won 5 medals at the last Olympics? Despite all this success, she still hasn’t joined the ranks of the all-star gymnastic legends. [F#3-F#5]
[DOMINIQUE MOCEANU] Female, 14. White. From Hollywood, California. The daughter of Romanian immigrants and former gymnasts who began training as an infant. Bubbly and innocent but very assured of her talents. Even though she’s recovering from an injury, she knows what everyone expects from her. [G3-F5]
[JAYCIE PHELPS] Female, 16. White. From Greenfield, Indiana. In that weird age where she’s too old to be the next big thing, but too young to be a veteran. She’s cool and pretty relaxed, but also unsure where she fits. [G3-G#5]
[KERRI STRUG] Female, 18. White. From Tucson, Arizona. The consummate underdog. Despite being strong and experienced, she’s still a bit timid and understated. She wants nothing more than to break out from the shadow of her more famous teammates - something she never got to do in the last Olympic games. [F3-E5]
A note on vocal quality: The score is intended to be sung in a pop style -- erring on the side of less vibrato. While all the tracks have a rather wide range, in group numbers Jaycie, Amanda, and Dominique Moceanu tend towards the higher end, with Kerri and Dominique Dawes grounding the lower end. Amy tends to sit in the middle of group numbers, and Shannon should have powerful highs and lows.
[JOHN TESH] Male, 44. Blow-dried, charming, a little out of his depth. Sportscaster for the US Open, Tour de France, and Olympic gymnastics. Adult contemporary pianist and composer. Co-host of Entertainment Tonight since 1986. [B2-F#4, floated up to A4]
[ELFI SCHLEGEL] Female, 32. As direct, technical, and stern as her male counterparts. Former Canadian gymnast who missed her chance at competing in the 1980 Olympics when Canada boycotted the games. But she’s not bitter. [G3-D#4] Ethnicity: All Ethnicities.
[TIM DAGGETT] Male, 34. Eager, positive, a gymnastics wonk. Competed in the 1984 Olympic games on the US men’s team, where he scored a perfect 10 and helped the team win the first American gold medal. He’s always had historically weak ankles. [B2-E4, plus an F4 that can option] Ethnicity: All ethnicities.
[AN APPARITION] Female. Any age. A vision of a 16-year-old saint. (It’s Mary Lou Retton, though.) Ethnicity: All ethnicities.
