WE HAD A GIRL BEFORE YOU by Trevor Schmidt
Director: Weylin Symes

Runs October 20 – November 5, 2023
We Had a Girl Before You is written as a solo play.
Edwina “Weenie” Trout, (30s-50s, any ethnicity) Our (unreliable) narrator, who also portrays several other characters. Weenie tells a story of travelling to a decrepit mansion where evil seems to lurk around every corner. Full of classic gothic melodrama and horror tropes, it is unclear if her story is true or the workings of a broken mind.

NICELY-NICELY JOHNSON, B5-D4, 30-45: Just like his name suggests, he is the nicest and cheeriest of the gambling crooks. High-spirited and a bit naïve, but sincere and genuine. Nathan’s loyal friend and lackey.
BENNY SOUTHSTREET, G5-D4, 30-45: Nathan’s right-hand man and a gambler himself. Smart, slick, always moving and shaking, but with what he thinks are Nathan’s best interest at heart.
SARAH BROWN, G5-B3, 20-30: A pretty, bright-eyed woman who serves as Sergeant of the local Mission. Idealistic, sheltered, and straightlaced, she is passionate about her cause and wishes to convert the gambling sinners to saints. Falls unexpectedly in love with gambler Sky Masterson along the way.
ARVIDE ABERNATHY, Strong Baritone, 50+: He is the older, wiser leader of the Salvation Army in Times Square. He is a reasoned old man with a warm heart.
HARRY THE HORSE, G5-F3, 35-55: A crook and gambler. He is a tough guy with dollar signs as his bottom line.
LT. BRANNIGAN, Male, 40-55: A New York police officer who is on to Nathan’s illegal craps games and is dead-set on catching him. A tough, no-nonsense character.
NATHAN DETROIT, Male, F5-D4, 35-45: A good-hearted gambler and craps game organizer who could never hit the bigtime. He loves Adelaide, but cannot quit his gambling ways.
MISS ADELAIDE, Female, F5 – A3, 25-35: Nathan’s fiancé and a lead performer at the Hot Box nightclub. She loves Nathan more than anything in the world and desperately wants to get married. Pretty, outspoken, stubborn.
SKY MASTERSON, Male, E5-B3, 30-45: A high-stakes gambler whose luck never seems to run out, and a wild card who surprises himself when he falls in love with missionary Sarah Brown. Suave, smart, handsome.
BIG JULE, Male, G5-F3, 30-50: A big time craps player from Chicago who uses a gun and his own pair of rigged dice to bully his way into never losing. Tough looking. A bit of an oaf.
