Breakdown

Note: SYNOPSIS: Jo has twenty-four hours to save Hiram Hall, her father's once famous country western saloon. She thinks she has booked a country music trio that is sure to save the day, but there's been a little misunderstanding: can the classical Coghill Trio turn themselves into the country Cowgirl Trio in time to put on a rip-roaring show that will save Hiram Hall from foreclosure? It’s an all female cast, and they all play one or more musical instruments.

Seeking:

Jo Carlson
Late 40s. Owner of Hiram Hall. If fate hadn't intervened she would have been the next Loretta Lynn/Dolly Parton. As it is, she is the forceful owner of a Music Hall that has seen its better day. She is potentially at the beginning of a brand new chapter in her life with the recent death of her father and subsequent inheritance of Hiram hall. Jo plays piano and guitar.

Mary Lou
Mid 30s. She is the most repressed, inflexible member of the trio. She's been following rules for so long that she no longer knows the difference between what she wants to do and what she should do. Although she doesn't realize it, her subconscious is trying to tell her it's time to do what she wants. Mary Lou plays violin (fiddle), mandolin, and guitar.

Rita
Mid 30s. The well-meaning, if somewhat confused organizer of the summer tour of the Coghill Trio. Her role as wife and mother-to-be has a great deal to do with her confusion. She is seven months into a nine month dealing to figure out what she's going to do with the rest of her life. Rita plays piano, synthesizer, accordion, harmonica and bucket.

Lee
Mid 30s. A great explorer of the spiritual frontier, she's always looking for the order in the chaos. She is never without a personal mission and that is particularly true right now. All of this, however, does not preclude a good sense of humor. Lee plays cello, guitar, and tambourine.

Mickey
Late 20s. the 'rode hard and put away wet' waitress at Hiram Hall. She's younger and spirited than she ought to be for amount of life she lived. She doesn't appear to be Nashville's next sweetheart but that won't stop her. Mickey plays banjo and tambourine. Mo - 20s. She's got a special knack for numbers, cooking and finding the question in what everybody else thought was an answer. Sincere and big-hearted, she is Mickey's greatest fan and Jo's most loyal employee. Mo plays autoharp, ukulele, and bucket.
