Queenie, Female, 20-30, F3-F5 Blonde and beautiful. Sexy. Looks a little older and more tired than her age would indicate. Afraid of being alone. Has become addicted to Burrs' presence and ravenous sexual appetite.
Burrs, Male, 30-40, G3-A5 Handsome. A professional clown. Dangerous and charming all at once. Sexually ravenous and drawn to Queenie like a moth to the flame. Hurts somewhere deep inside, and slowly descends into jealous insanity.
Black, Male, 25-35, F3-G5 Strong, handsome, and poised without being posed. An enigmatic loner. Protective. No-nonsense kind of guy who cannot understand Queenie's attraction to Burrs.
Kate, Female, 20-30, F3-E5 A lush. Likes to be the "life of the party." Always looking out for number one, and is jealous of Queenie. Sexy, sensual, and confident.
Madeline True, Female, 30-55 (Age Flexible), A3-E5 A tired woman and an announced lesbian. Sexually hungry. Blunt and very dry.
Delores, Female, 30-45(Age Flexible), A3-A5 A party-goer pitching ideas and hoping to score with Sam. A wild woman of the night.
Eddie, Male, 30-45, A3-A5 Mae's husband who is perhaps even more dim-witted than she is. A big oaf. Can be a lovable teddy bear but also a quick tempered brute. Adores his wife.
Mae, Female, 25-45, A3-D5 Eddie's wife. Sweet and beautiful, but not particularly bright. Adores her husband and dotes on him.
Sam, Male, 30-50, A3-A5 Busy producer and "attention whore." Trying to avoid the outrageous pitches made by Dolores, until it becomes sexual.
Oscar D’Armano, Male, 25-35, A3-B5 Phil's brother and lover who dresses as his twin. A composer and an entertainer in every sense of the word. Very flamboyant.
Phil D’Armano, Male, 25-35, A3-A5 Oscar's brother and lover who dresses as his twin. A composer and an entertainer in every sense of the word. Very flamboyant.
Nadine, Female, “A Minor” 16-18 (in appearance) A3-A5 The only minor at the party. Waifish and somewhat naïve. She is in over her head and trying to keep up.
Max, Male, 25-35, A3-B5 One of the party goers and a member of the usual "gang." He is full of life and energy.
Jackie, Male, 20-30, (Ensemble singing/Good Dancer)
Ensemble (10-12) Male and Female, various vocal ranges, Should be good dancers.
