Barry (Male, 18-35, Tenor/Baritone, Voice-Over Role)
Barry is a puppet and the imaginary friend of Max. He is exuberant, energetic and fun-loving. His voice should sound natural, almost childlike. Examples include Walter from “The Muppets”, Phineas from “Phineas and Ferb” or Yakko Warner from “Animaniacs”. Barry is the antithesis of childhood imagination and wonder and exudes love and positivity, with a touch of sarcasm and slight adult humor.
