Casting 8 f, 7 M, ensemble
Judy Bernly - 30s, soprano with high belt, a meek housewife with her first foray into the working world when her husband runs off with his secretary. She changes throughout the play into a force to be reckoned with, taking control of herself and her life. Confused.
Violet Newstead - 40s, alto, a smart, efficient, widowed mother of a teenage son who is constantly being passed up for promotion in the boys'-club world of climbing the corporate ladder. She runs the office while her boss takes the credit. She is frustrated with her position, but not bitter. Witty and sharp.
Doralee Rhodes - mid 20s-mid 30s, country singing - high belt, a sexy, country gal who is the secretary for the boss, Franklin Hart. She is misunderstood at the beginning of the play due to rumors about an affair with the boss but comes to be a strong cog in the machine that destorys Hart. She is an eternal optimist, warm and personable, with a ready smile. Comedy is sharp and no-nonsense. American country accent is essential.
Franklin Hart Jr. - late 40s, bass/baritone, a pompous jerk of a boss. If he weren't the boss, he would have no friends at all. Spends his time trying to seduce Doralee. Smarmy, sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical, bigot.
Roz Keith - 40s, alto, the attentive office gossip queen and snitch. She has an unrequited love for Mr. Hart and does everything she can to undermine the rest of the office to earn his affection. Although she has depth, a lonely woman who seeks solace in her work and Hart.
Tinsworthy - late 30s, baritone, Chairman of the Board of the company. An adventurer, still virile. Hart's boss who may be wiser to Hart's ways than he lets on.
Joe - early 30s, high baritone/tenor, young leading man type. Charming, attractive accountant who is interested in Violet.
Dwayne Rhodes - early 30s, tenor, Doralee's husband. He is very supportive of her Country ambitions.
