Drew – Male, 20s. A young, handsome rocker. He has great comedic timing and a strong rock tenor. Drew desperately wants to be a rocker, but works as a bar back at the famous Rock of Ages club on the Sunset Strip until his dreams, however unrealistic, come true. (PRINCIPAL)

Lonny - Male, 30s – 40s. Very strong comedic timing and a commanding but comically strong rock vocal. Our narrator, he possibly has a slightly unflattering appearance but doesn’t see it. (PRINCIPAL)
Dennis – Male, 40s. Possibly heavyset (not crucial). Strong comedic timing. Any ethnicity. He runs the famous Rock of Ages club on the Sunset Strip. He is caught between a rock and a hard place when German businessmen pressure him to sell his club. (PRINCIPAL)
