The cast for this comedy consists of 2 females and 5 males. All roles are available.
The characters are:
Sgt. Froggy LeSueur-age from mid 40's up to 60's. He is a British military man with a Cockney accent.
Charlie Baker-age 30's to 40's. He has a British accent, as well as faking a foreign accent, preferably Polish, Hungarian, or other Slavic-esque accent. He is quiet, shy and unassuming. This is the lead character and must have comic timing with an expressive face. Think a young Harpo Marx.
All other characters are from the backwoods of Georgia and have a deep Southern accent.
Betty Meeks-age 60 plus--a widow that runs the local fishing lodge.
Rev. David Marshall Lee-30's. Local preacher engaged to Catherine. Appears very sweet and dear, but is a wolf in sheep's clothing.
Catherine Simms-20's. Former debutante and future heiress of her Daddy's processed meat company.
Owen Musser- late 20's to late 40's. Gruff and crude, he is a villain that is more brawn than brain.
Ellard Simms-late teens to early 20's. Catherine's younger brother with mental challenges. Very likable and always eager to help.
Rehearsals are Mondays thru Thursdays, 7 to 10 PM the weeks of December 9 and 16, 2013 followed by a 2 week break for the holidays. Rehearsals will resume beginning January 6, 2014 and continue until load in and tech week on Feb. 2, 2014. the show opens on Feb. 7, 2014 and runs for 3 weekends.
