ALBERT PETERSON - (Age 30-40, plays age 32). Handsome, charismatic and creative, yet flustered and neurotic, composer/manager, a bit of a “mamma’s boy.” Must sing and move very well, dance experience preferred. (Baritone, high F#)

ROSE ALVAREZ - (Age 28-35). Albert’s long-suffering secretary/girlfriend. Determined, exasperated, with a fiery passion, but a sweet, hopeful heart that shines through. Strong dancing and singing role. (Lyric Alto - Low F#)

CONRAD BIRDIE - (Age 20-28). Handsome, well-built, 50’s rock star with the charisma of a young Elvis Presley. NO ELVIS IMPERSONATORS, PLEASE! Must sing well (rock’n’roll), and move well, dance experience helpful. (Baritone color, lots of high F’s)

KIM MacAFEE - (Age 16). Cast.

MR. HARRY MacAFEE - (Age 38+). Kim’s father, desperately trying to hold on to his place as head of the household. Must have a unique comedy spirit and sing. (Character Baritone, must harmonize - High E)

HUGO PEABODY - (Plays age 16). Kim’s “steady.” The kid next door, he might be any size, style, or personality, but is very threatened by the presence of Conrad in Kim’s life. Must sing and move.

URSULA MERKLE - (Plays age 15-16). Kim’s hyper-enthusiastic teen neighbor, she lives and breathes for Conrad Birdie. Must sing and move well.
