The characters required are described as follows:
BOB WALLACE Mid 30s. Baritone. Superb singer, with a crooning style, who moves very well.
A major singing star, Bob is the guiding force behind the song & dance team of Wallace and Davis. Despite his occasional gruffness, he is a deeply kind and principled man who is searching for his true love.
PHIL DAVIS Mid 30s. Baritone-tenor. Song-&-dance comic performer. Strong jazz & tap needed.
The fun-loving, go-getting partner of the team of Wallace and Davis. An irrepressible clown, operator and incorrigible ladies’ man, he has a boyish charm and sex appeal.
BETTY HAYNES Late 20s. Rich chest-mix sound with soprano extension. Must move very well.
The responsible half of the upcoming song & dance team, The Haynes Sisters. A charming woman of upstanding principles, she is devoted to her younger sister.
JUDY HAYNES 20s. Chest-mix. Song & dance performer. Strong Jazz & tap needed.
The younger, more ambitious Haynes Sister. While wholesome and adorable, she is sexy and flirty; a winning charmer no man can resist.
GENERAL HENRY WAVERLY Late 50s-mid 60s. Non-singing (except 1 line)
Retired US Army General, adjusting to civilian life as he tries to run an Inn in Vermont. Highly-principled and dignified man. Beneath his curmudgeonly military exterior, lies a warm, compassionate man in need of family and love.
MARTHA WATSON Late 40s-mid 60s. Belt voice. Character-comedienne
Once a Broadway star with a winning, appealing personality, now the General’s house-keeper at the Inn. She has a dry, wry, wise-cracking sense of humour.
SUSAN WAVERLY To play 9 yrs-old. Excellent belt voice. Must be able to move well.
Loveable and out-going kid, General’s granddaughter, very smart and wise beyond her years.
RALPH SHELDRAKE Baritone.
Army buddy of Bob & Phil’s, now a major TV executive with the Ed Sullivan Show. Fast-talking New York professional.
RITA & RHODA Mid 20s- early 30s.
Bob & Phil’s 2 star chorus girls; brash, sexy and fun, although perhaps not the smartest.
EZEKIEL FOSTER Mid 40s-late 50s.
`The ultimate taciturn New Englander, who helps out at the inn and takes life at a very slow pace.
MIKE Mid 20s-late 30s.
Bob & Phil’s stage manager, with a tendency to be over-dramatic and completely hysterical, but will get things done.
