LANA MAE HOPKINS: (Vocal Range: F below middle C to two Fs above middle C) Lana Mae runs the Wishy Washy Washateria. She’s been in a bad marriage for five years, but is oblivious to her husband’s philandering and cheating. Her thoughts regarding marriage and love are throwbacks to the 50s. She dresses brightly and uniquely, her hair is larger than normal, and she lives her life through colorful Southern colloquialisms. Cheerful, bighearted, a real diamond-in-the-rough.

KATIE LANE MURPHY: (Vocal Range: G below middle C to two Fs above middle C) Katie finds a job working for Lana Mae in the laundry and sets out to help Lana Mae break free from her husband. KATIE is a bit more prim and proper than Lana Mae, with a touch of neurosis thrown in for good measure, and her accent is not nearly as strong. Katie learns from Lana Mae how to open up and face her fears, especially after the "pills kick in."

TINA DENMARK (Vocal Range: F# below middle C to E one octave above middle C): An adorable and incredibly talented young girl who was born to entertain. She is able to sing, act and tap dance extremely well. She’s charming, courteous and knows exactly what she wants to be before she grows up...a big-time Broadway star. An 8-year old.

LOUISE LERMAN (Vocal Range: Middle C to B Flat above middle C): An adorable and talented 8- year-old who is Tina’s competition. Able to sing, act and dance well.

JUDY DENMARK: (Vocal Range: F below middle C to B Flat one octave above middle C) A devoted wife and mother who floats effortlessly through life with a smile, whether doing housework, doting on her daughter, or taking a time-out to bake a cake. Though a woman with opinions on everything from how best to raise her child to preparing a well-balanced meal, she automatically defers to those around her, the result of her hallmark virtue: consummate politeness.

SYLVIA ST. CROIX ROLE CAST

MISS THORN (Vocal Range: E below middle C to B above middle C): She’s convinced herself, after years of failing to make it as an actress in New York, that true fulfillment could be found not only in front of an audience, but in front of a classroom. Returning to her hometown to become a third-grade teacher, she takes a strictly professional approach to putting on the annual school show.

LITA ENCORE ROLE CAST

EVE (Vocal Range: Middle C to B Flat above middle C): An assistant to a Broadway star, her behavior cycles from professional to erratic to downright bizarre. One minute she’s fiercely loyal, the next she’s imitating the star’s every move, clearly wanting to be her, not work for her. Her slipping into foreign accents would suggest she marches not to a different drummer, but to an entire drum corp.

MARGE GELMAN (Vocal range: Mezzo-Soprano, comfortable to an E and beyond, preferably a legit sound): Abandoned at the altar, Marge is an aspiring dentist from Brooklyn who finds herself in the Catskills on what would have been her honeymoon weekend. (Think Jennifer Grey in DIRTY DANCING) Duped into falling for the suave band leader, she ultimately finds self-esteem, learns the value of honesty and friendship and finds love where she least expected it.

LOIS WARNER (Vocal range: Alto with some Mezzo-Soprano ability, comfortable to a C and beyond, preferably a pop sound): An aspiring nightclub singer, Lois lives her life as if in a Betty Grable movie. She brings her best friend Marge up from Brooklyn to the Catskills for Labor Day Weekend. In trying to help her friend Marge recover from heartbreak, she inadvertently puts her in the line of fire with Del, the hotel’s suave but manipulative bandleader. With a Marilyn Monroe simplicity, Lois is a sweet young girl with more heart than brainpower.

DEL DELMONACO (Vocal range: Tenor, comfortable to an A): An Elvis wannabe, Del is not the brightest bulb on the tree. (Think Conrad Birdie or Joey from FRIENDS). Del will do anything to get ahead, including misleading Marge into thinking he loves her and stealing his cousin Gabe’s songs for his own use.

GABE (Vocal Range: Tenor, Bb-C range): The clumsy, brainy and terribly shy Guy Friday at the hotel, Gabe is on a fast track to joining his father’s orthodontia practice. Lacking the self-confidence to perform his own music, Gabe he is secretly the songwriting genius behind the music Del claims as his own. When Gabe meets Marge, he is compelled to take action to win her heart and, ultimately, to reveal himself as the true musician, performing his own songs in front of the whole resort.

ESTHER (Vocal Range: Alto, comfortable to a C and really rich in the low to mid register): The owner of the mid-size hotel named after her (Esther’s Paradise), Esther is a survivor. Since the death of her husband, she has single-handedly kept the hotel afloat using crafty solutions, boundless energy and creativity to keep guests happy. She is fiercely independent, refusing help or support from anyone, and she’s always there with a quip or smart remark.

HARVEY (Vocal Range: Baritone, should have range to an F# or a G): The resident “tummler” (comedian/social director) at Esther’s Paradise, Harvey is old-school Catskills. He is all about the punch line (and the set-up). A confirmed bachelor, Harvey spends most of his life cracking wise and avoiding any show if genuine emotion or vulnerability. When he witnesses the extreme lengths to which Marge will go to make love work for her again, he is inspired to take a leap of faith with Esther, the one person who truly appreciates the man behind the jokes.

EAT MOE (Vocal Range: Bb2 - Ab4): A hungry Moe who is merry, optimistic, cheery and overweight.

FOUR-EYED MOE (Vocal Range: C3 - G4): The bespectacled, clear-sighted "leader" of the group who is irreverent and magnetic.

LITTLE MOE (Vocal Range: C3 - Ab4): A small, single Moe who likes his chicks large. He is sensitive to his size and very short-tempered.

NO MOE (Vocal Range C3 - G4): A straight-laced, conservative, and high-classed Moe with a sense of humor.

NOMAX (Vocal range Ab2 - G4): Gloomy young man who is depressed about his girlfriend issues. A naive, self-absorbed, deadbeat alcoholic who needs to get his life together.
