Auditions are for the following characters:
All roles require singing 

McBee - A mature man -  A librarian. Meticulous. Single. Very organized. Dresses with all the possible articles of clothings from his wardrobe (hat, jacket, coat, buttoned shirt, undershirt, scarf, etc. Of course, he has a bag, an umbrella, and more accessories). The rules in the library are very important to him. He loves order. Secretly envies authors and wants to become one. In some ways, he is very much like a religious man zealous for God and His laws. During the show, this aspect of his personality comes out.

Merriweather - A mature woman.Young at heart. Manages a department in the library. Loves children and people in general. Single. Her life is really dedicated to the library and books. She could have been many things in her life, but the library, in her opinion, is the most wonderful place to be. She sees the library as a place to liberate people. She is not disorganized like the Storyteller and not as orderly as McBee. She is more of a free spirit who allows herself to move freely in space.



In the library, there are books. But also very clear rules: no shouting, no running, no eating or drinking. But what happens when one day a lion enters the library? He doesn't roar or rampage, and contrary to expectations, he peacefully joins storytelling hour. Not everyone is okay with this, after all, he doesn't abide by the rules. (A lion? In the library? – that's completely out of order!) It will be revealed that rules are important to follow, but not only that: That it is also very important, here and there, to dust off some of these rule books as well.
