AUNT ELLER - Female, late 40’s/50’s. Runs a farm in the Oklahoma Territory. She is tough, resourceful, earthy and strong. A single woman with a flinty sense of humor and big heart. Strong actor who sings and moves well. Voice: Mezzo (G3 to F5)
CURLY - Male, 20’s-30’s. Young, strapping cowman. Charming, flirty and sexy, but hasn’t yet been ready to commit. Engages in witty sparring with Laurey. He’s got a strong sense of ethics and decency. Strong baritone. Voice: Baritone (C3 to F#4)
LAUREY - Female, early to late 20’s. Attractive, strong, quick witted farm-owner in the Oklahoma territory. Skilled, no-nonsense farmer.

ADO ANNIE - Female, early 20’s to mid 30’s. Funny, good-natured, energetic, and a bit wild. Enjoys her sexuality. A bit naïve – or perhaps it’s just an act? Either way, she’s good hearted and great fun. Strong comic actor. Strong mover/dancer. Voice: Mezzo/belt (C4 to F5)
