Marty
Female, High School Teen (Range Alto, C4–C5)
The 'beauty' of the Pink Ladies; pretty and looks older than the other girls, but betrays her real age when she opens her mouth. She tries to act sophisticated.
Jan
Female, High School Teen (Range: Alto, A3-C5)
Funny, loud, compulsive eater, and awkward member of the Pink Ladies. Loud and pushy with the girls, but shy with boys.
Doody

The youngest of the guys; small, boyish, and open, with a disarming smile and a hero-worshipping attitude towards the other guys. He also plays the guitar.
Kenickie

A no-nonsense, serious, loud English teacher.
Patty Simcox
Female, High School Teen (Range: Alto, D4-A4)

Dir Michael Baron
Choreo TBA
Book by Jeff Whitty

Basilus
King of Arcadia. A sexy, good ol' boy. A hothead, but not a despot. Blindly thinks Arcadia is doing great under his masculine rule, which will be sorely tested during the course of the show.
Gynecia
Queen of Arcadia. Sexy, wise, beautiful. Like any longstanding spouse, knows how to get her way with her husband when push comes to shove.
Pamela
Basilius and Gynecia's older daughter. Confident and obsessed with her appearance. Known to be the most beautiful bachelorette throughout Arcadia.
Philoclea
Basilius and Gynecia's younger daughter. Shy and a "good girl", she yearns to follow her heart rather than obey her father's orders.
Dametas
The King’s viceroy; father to Mopsa.
Mopsa
Handmaiden to Pamela. Warm, skeptical. Growing up without a mother has made her wise beyond her years about everyone and everything, which is why she is the (sometime) narrator to the show.
Musidorus
A young shepherd who courts after Philoclea.
Pythio
The Oracle; powerful, mysterious. Demanding. Great sense of humor--can see through everyone--they are the Oracle of Delphi, after all. Performers isn't limited to gender identity and ethnicity.
