SEEKING THE FOLLOWING PRINCIPAL ROLES:
THE ENTIRE COMPANY MUST BE EXCELLENT COUNTRY SINGERS!!!
FEMALE PRINCIPLES:

FANCY:
Character ages from 18 – 35. She is appealing, attractive and sexual in a nonaggressive way. She is a backwoods Louisiana country girl forced to leave home by her mother. As she makes her way in the world she is both innocent and vulnerable but quickly learns that she must be independent and strong enough not be used and abused by men in order to fulfill her dream of becoming a world famous country star. She abandons her husband and child for her career but eventually realizes that she can have both a family and fame. SHE MUST PLAY THE GUITAR WELL.
SALLY JOHNSON: CAST

MALE PRINCIPLES:

NED CONROY:
(mid 30’s) A southern man. He is handsome, sexy, arrogant, controlling and volatile but has a tender side to him as well. He is the foreman of the glass factory, where he meets Fancy on her first day. He is immediately attracted to her, breaks down her defenses with his charm, and they marry. In his typical alpha male way he makes her into a house wife but he eventually realizes her great talent.
CHARLEY MAKUM:
(mid 40’s) A promoter who discovers and manages Fancy’s career. He is sexually appealing, slick and a bit sleazy, very self-possessed. He takes over her life both professionally and romantically. While he’s responsible for creating her star image, he is ultimately untrustworthy and cheats on Fancy repeatedly during their relationship.
TRAVIS:
(14 years old) Fancy and Ned’s son. He is a troubled arrogant teenager and bitter that his mother has abandoned him for her career. He eventually goes to prison for car theft but he is pardoned and reunited with his mother after his father’s death. He and Fancy reconcile and he supports her stardom.
LITTLE TRAVIS:
(7 years old) This is a non-speaking role that appears in a montage of the beginning of Fancy and Ned’s marriage and family life
