Leo (30's-40's) Attractive and marginally gifted Shakespearean actor. Charming, but a bit pompous, and short-tempered; thinks a lot of himself and longs to achieve stardom. (British accent required.)
Jack (30's-40's) Leo's (more reserved) acting partner and fellow Brit. Genuine nice guy who's easily drawn into Leo's harebrained schemes. Think Ethel to Leo's Lucy. (British accent required.)
Meg (Late 20's-early 30's) Vivacious and attractive local PA girl who harbors a world of dreams for a bigger world. She is very warm and good-natured. Engaged to the much older Duncan.
Duncan (Late 40's-50's) Local minister, engaged to Meg. Very fussy and set in his ways and a little scatter brained.
Audrey (Late teens-early' 20's) Very attractive and well-built. She is extremely gullible and sweet, with newly acquired book sense, but not much common sense; an "intelligent airhead." (Actress required to roller skate.)
Doc (50's-60's) A country doctor, a gruff, likeable curmudgeon who doesn't take any guff from anybody. "Chief Moose" at the Moose Lodge, with a very distinctive "moose call."
Florence (60+) Meg's (and Max and Steve's) millionairess aunt. Very crusty and irritable with terrible eyesight. On her deathbed...or not?
Butch (20's) Doc's son who is totally smitten with Audrey. Sincere and good-hearted, but a little slow on the uptake.
