SILENCE! The Musical
Music and Lyrics by Jon Kaplan and Al Kaplan
Book by Hunter Bell
This musical parody of The Silence Of The Lambs was a huge hit when it debuted at the New York Fringe Festival and it went on to several successful New York runs. Now Falcon Theatre brings this outrageous spoof to our area in its regional premiere. SILENCE! The Musical is hysterical in it’s quest to be completely politically incorrect as it parodies all the characters you loved in the original movie.
NOTE: This play contains extremely mature language and subject matter and is not appropriate for audience members under the age of 18.
Performance Dates: September 25, 26, October 1, 2, 3, 8, 9 & 10, 2015

Renee Alper, long time patron of Falcon Theatre, passed away on July 27, 2015. Renee was one of the most ardent supporters of theater in the Greater Cincinnati area, literally seeing hundreds of productions over the last several years. Although her health made it a challenge for her to travel, she still visited practically every theater in the area and was unwavering in her support of this art she loved so much. She was a playwright and actress herself and was a stalwart patron of the arts. She loved nothing more than seeing shows and discussing predictions with actors and artists…offering insights into everything she saw. Renee will be greatly missed for her unparalleled support and passion.

SILENCE! The Musical is a spoof of the film The Silence Of The Lambs and, as such, is performed with a comedic leaning toward the actors in the original film. We aren’t looking for faithful imitations, but the production will strive to highlight certain characteristics that defined the roles.

Clarice Starling 25-35, Caucasian female. She is a mix of tough and sexy. West Virginian accent. Belt/mix to C (optional to E-flat). Alto/Mezzo-soprano.
Dr. Hannibal Lecter 40s-50s, Caucasian male. An intelligent, psychiatrist with a taste for all things of class and high society, not to mention all things human. Tenor/Baritenor, to A-flat with a strong lower register. Think Evil Gilbert & Sullivan.
Buffalo Bill 30s to early 40s, Caucasian male. Must be an extremely strong comedic actor who can do a Mid-Western accent. Baritone to G (opt. to A) with a strong lower register.
Catherine/Senator Martin/Lamb 20s-30s, Caucasian female. Strong comedic actress. Larger physical build a plus, but not necessary. High belter with strong soprano to A/B.
Crawford/Papa Starling/Lamb 40-50, Caucasian male. Head of FBI. Baritone/Bass to E- flat.
Dr. Chilton/Cop/Lamb 30s-50s. Male, any ethnicity, to play the smarmy Dr. Chilton and multiple roles. Baritone to E-flat, with strong upper register.
