Violet is 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 from her desk while her boss takes the credit. She is frustrated with her position, but not bitter. Witty, attractive, strong, ambitious. Alto (F3–D5).
JUDY BERNLY (Mezzo-Soprano)

DORALEE RHODES (Alto)
Doralee Rhodes is 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 destroys Hart. Country singing. Comedy is sharp and no-nonsense. Soprano with high belt (G3–E5)
Roz Keith is the office busy-body, is not-so-secretly in love with Mr. Hart, and does everything she can to undermine the rest of the office to earn his affections. Over the top comedic role. Alto (C5–G3)
Franklin Hart is a pompous jerk of a boss. If he weren’t the boss, he would have no friends at all. Smarmy. Sexist, Egotistical, Lying, Hypocritical, Bigot. Baritone (Gb4–C3)
Charming, attractive accountant who is interested in Violet. Doubles in the Men’s Ensemble. Tenor (G4–B2)
Doralee’s supportive husband. Country. Doubles in the Men’s Ensemble. Tenor (G4–E2)
Judy’s soon-to-be ex-husband. An average guy, he is sporting a little less hair and a little more paunch than he did ten years ago.
Violet’s awkward teenage son. Must look young enough to pass as a teenager, but old enough to double in the Men’s Ensemble.
Office Gossip. Doubles in the Women’s Ensemble.
Office lush. Doubles in the Women’s Ensemble.
Young and vibrant secretary. Doubles in the Women’s Ensemble.
Hart’s Wife. Fluttery and ditzy. Doubles in the Women’s Ensemble.
Great character types and/or strong singer-actor-dancers who will fill out the rest of this wacky world as office employees, police officers, hospital employees. Strong Ensemble is crucial to the success of this show.
