BREAKDOWN

MRS SNUSTAD (VIVIAN)
50’-60’s She is the most conservative of the ladies and the matriarch of the kitchen. Her word is not to be tested and her decisions are final. She is a mix of Shirley McClain as “Weeser”, Bea Arthur as “Maude” “Doris” in Everybody Loves Raymond and the Mom in Golden Girls. Vocally hers is the highest voice of the ladies. Low – A flat below middle C, no lower than a B flat below middle C. High - E, a major 10th above middle C.
MRS ELROY ENGELSON (KARIN)
40’s She is second in line to take over the kitchen. She is neat and tidy in appearance and quite pretty in a very conservative way, almost looking like Jackie Kennedy with everything perfectly in it’s place. The middle voice. Low – A flat below middle C, and High – D, a major 9th above middle C. Should have a comfortable belt.
MRS GILMER GILMERSON (MAVIS)
late 40’s - late 50’s and is a farmer’s wife and a grandmother. She is the most physical comedienne of the three ladies because of her “jump in and work” attitude. She appears rather disheveled even when dressed up for a wedding. She is somewhat butch, but not gay. Everyone loves her. The lowest of the voices – Low – A flat below middle C. High - D, a major 9th above middle C.
SIGNE (Beverly) ENGELSON
20’s She is the daughter of Karin, and has just started college at the University of Minnesota. She is pretty like her mother, and very sweet, but not afraid to challenge Mrs. Snustad and speak her mind in a respectful way. Low – A below middle C. High – G flat above middle C.
PASTOR E. L. GUNDERSON
40’s – 50’s The ladies all seem to have crushes on him in a respectful “pastorly” way. He is goaded by the fact that he comes from a family of Pastors, and his brother, not he, inherited his father’s church down the road. He is a bit competitive, and finds that he can truly relax when in the kitchen. He has a very friendly and intimate relationship with God, almost like “Tevye” and he knows that the church runs best when the kitchen is happy. Low – B flat, a major 9th below middle C. High – G flat above middle C
