Love Stories/Love Songs 2 Cast Page
Similar to last year’s Valentine’s show, the story features 4 couples at various stages of their relationships in a series of 2-person scenes. The four stories are related to one another but the audience doesn’t find out how until the last scene.
The characters are written gender neutral, so the couples can be in any combination.
Each role will get two solos, a duet with the other person in their couple, and will participate in a group number at the end.
See below for information on characters, songs, proposed rehearsal schedule, and an interest form.

Each performer is guaranteed a minimum of $50 per performance – $100 total for this show.
Each performer will also receive equal shares in 50% of the net profits.
For illustrative purposes only:
- Gross Profits: $3,500
- Expenses: $1,500
- Net Profits: $2,000
- 50% of Net: $1,000
- 50% of Net Divided 8 Ways: $125
- Total Performer Compensation (Minimum + Participation): $225
Total performer compensation is therefore dependent on ticket sales, but will be a minimum of $100 even if the show loses money.
