STORY: The story is a simple crime caper. King Leopold III of Balonia and his overbearing, impatient wife are owners of the world’s largest gem, the fabulous Balonian Diamond. Big Boy had planned to steal the diamond for Breathless Mahoney, but after the heist, no one is quite sure who has the diamond. Dick Tracy is on the case, and after a chase sequence that makes the most out of every part of the stage and scenery, he is able to pinpoint the real criminal masterminds and return the diamond to the Balonian royalty!
Dick Tracy Character Break Down:
Dick Tracy: Know as the hero in the America comic strip Dick Tracy. Tracy is a tough and intelligent detective who uses advanced gadgetry, and wits in his relentless pursuit of criminals. When he’s not fighting crime he’s trying to impress Tess Trueheart. A charming leading man needs strong acting abilities – does not sing or dance.
Tess Trueheart: Dick Tracy’s sweetheart, she’s witty, sophisticated and helps Tracy put dangerous criminals behind bars. Sings, dances, and acts.
Breathless Mahoney: This bad girl uses her charm to entice her victims to do her dirty work. Sings, dances, and acts.
Flat Top: Always on the run from Dick Tracy. Sings, dances, and acts
Big Boy: The brains of the operation, always trying to get away with something.
Mumbels: Part of the bad boy crew, however, no one can understand what he says because he’s always mumbling.
Crewy Lou: Don’t let her innocent looks fool you. Trouble is her middle name!
Queen of Malonia: Loud, proud and not afraid to voice her opinion.
King of Malonia: Soft-spoken, and know that the Queen, is the real boss.
