Mid 30s to early 40s. A major singing star, Bob is the guiding force behind the song and dance team of Wallace and Davis. He wears his fame easily, but has some trouble with social and romantic interactions. Despite occasional gruffness, he is a deeply kind and principled man who is searching for true love. Excellent singer with a crooning style who moves well. Baritone.
Mid 30s to early 40s. The fun-loving song-and-dance partner of the team Wallace and Davis. An irrepressible clown, operator, and incorrigible ladies’ man who is determined to see his friend happy, even if it requires scheming and outright deception. He has a boyish charm and sex appeal. Strong ballroom, jazz and tap-dancing needed. Baritone-tenor.
Mid-20s to late 30s. Sensible, responsible half of the Haynes sisters act. Classic elegance. Destined to be a star, but hesitant to take the spotlight. Devoted to her sister. Hides a yearning for true love under a protective shell. Female singer of quiet beauty and charm with a rich chest mix and soprano extension. Must move well.
Mid-20s to mid 30s. Younger, more ambitious and slightly scheming other sister. Wholesome and adorable, sexy and flirty. Strong ballroom, jazz and tap dancer. Strong singer with a chest mix.
General Henry Waverly
Late 50s to mid 60s. Retired Army general with a curmudgeonly military exterior, adjusting to retired life in post WW II America. Precise and orderly, struggling to run the Inn in Vermont. A man of integrity. Underneath a warm compassionate man in need of family and love. With the exception of one line, can be a non-singing role.
Late 40s to mid-60s. Once a Broadway star, now the General’s housekeeper. The true force behind running the Inn. Very dry wit and frank with a wisecracking sense of humor. Big hearted, but unsentimental. Irrepressible meddler, believing she acts on everyone’s best behalf. Strong singer, Broadway belter.
Young girl, 9 years old. The General’s granddaughter. Loveable and outgoing. A bit precocious, but wise beyond her years. Gets bitten by the stage bug and is great at it. Excellent belt voice, must move very well.
Mid 30s to early 40s. Jokester Army buddy of Bob and Phil’s, now a major television executive. Fast talking, loud, brash New York professional.
Rita and Rhoda
Mid 20s to early 30s. Bob and Phil’s two star chorus showgirls. Brash, sexy and fun. Perhaps not the brightest. Also, dance with the Ensemble.
Mid 40s to mid 50s. Practical, the ultimate laid back New Englander. A man of few words. Takes life at a very leisurely pace.
Mid 20s to late 30s. Bob and Phil’s Stage Manager. Can be dramatic and hysterical, but gets the job done. Works to attempt a sense of control and order for the company.
Male and Female Ensemble:
Early 20s to mid 30s. To play assorted speaking roles as well as being a strong singing/dancing ensemble. Ballroom, Jazz and Tap. Dance style is 1950’s Hollywood movie musical.
