Denny Varney Vocal Range: Tenor C3-Ab 4; Falsetto to D5) Five years after high school graduation, Denny still lives with his mother, goofing off in the family basement instead of working for a living. Denny's lack of ambition and discipline have always been his downfall, but the new WOPR Radio "Dream of a Lifetime Talent Search" has put new wind in his sails. He uses his talents as a former Crooning Crabcake (the Glee Club at Springfield High) to first create a duo, then a trio, and finally a quartet to help find the unique doo-wop sound (and backer's money) he needs to bring his dream to reality. Jealousy rears its head when the final member of the group unintentionally steals Denny's spotlight.
Duke Henderson Vocal Range: Bass/Baritone Ab 2-G4; Falsetto to Eb 5) The last add-on to our singing group, Duke is the new guy from the wrong side of the tracks, and a natural singing whiz. He works for Big Stuff Auto, the new sponsor of the group, and Duke is added to Denny's fledgling group to turn it into a proper quartet. Duke is definitely the new alpha male, and Denny feels pushed aside and ignored for the seemingly brighter talents Duke brings to the table. Duke is also conflicted about falling in love with the boss's daughter, Lois, the girl that Eugene and Wally are already fighting over. Could he ever possibly fit into her family? Will Duke's bad-boy attitude break up the group's chance to win the big contest?
Weekly pay and housing provided as well as free meals on show days.
