FORTUNE TELLER: Female, early 30s. Very sexy, especially in her voice. Flirts with the audience. Something about her makes you think that she might not just tell the future, but be the future herself.
PREACHER: Male, 50s. Big voice and personality. No one knows how he can be out so late Saturday nights and still make it to church on time Sunday mornings.
TRUMPET PLAYER: Male, middle-aged. Quirky. Charismatic, so the tourists love him. Works at an outdoor jazz venue where he presents the New Orleans life in a true, but unlucky light, in order to capitalize on tips from the tourists. Trumpet playing not necessary.
GUITARIST: Male, 30s. A hopeless romantic in many aspects of life, but the most hopeless when it comes to getting over his ex-girlfriend. Loves the city of New Orleans. A little lacking in luster. Not a rock star. Drinking problem. Guitar playing not necessary.
DANCER: Female, early 20s. Works as a stripper on Bourbon St., selling her sexuality to the men who frequent the club, but doesn’t quite understand her own sexuality. Finds beauty in the stone angel that stands atop her mother's grave. Must be ok with performing a strip tease and putting on makeup without a mirror. 18+
PIANO MAN: Male, late 30s. Mysterious musician type. Shares heartfelt life stories with his audience. Not afraid to appear vulgar or vulnerable. Must be ok with smoke. Piano playing not necessary.

JESUS THE MACHINE GUN: 18 to play younger. Comes from a poor family. Hustles on the street for money, but not yet jaded by the world. Likes to escape into a world of imagination where he becomes an invented character. Tap dancing required.
CANOE BOY: Male, 20s Outdoorsy type. Canooed 3,270 miles over 8 months to bring his uncle’s ashes to New Orleans.

Canadian accent a plus.
