SAMMY – Baritone, to high F.  Singer, basic movement required.  Robbie’s best friend and guitarist for the trio, not terribly bright but means well and is supportive.  Sammy is a typical man’s man, rock star wannabe.

GEORGE – Baritone, to high (strong falsetto).  Strong character singer who can rap and has good falsetto.  Plays keyboard for the trio.  Boy George type.

JULIA SULLIVAN – Soprano, low G to E.  Strong singer with good movement ability.  The role is to be played sweet and innocent, she is a waitress who longs to be married and live the perfect married life.

HOLLY – Pop belt to middle E.  Must have good dance ability and be a strong actor with comedic timing.  Holly is Julia’s cousin, very uninhibited and forward.  Based on Madonna of the 80s.

GLEN GUGLIA – Baritone.  Strong acting skills and requires singing and basic movement.  Julia’s fiancé, a calculating, money-loving Wall Street type.  Probably a former frat fro.  Slimy.
