LENNY MCGRATH 30. Celebrating her 30th birthday, Lenny is the older sister to Meg and Babe. Maternal and responsible, she’s trying to keep things together. She’s lonely.
MEG MCGRATH Mid-late 20s. Middle sister to Lenny and Babe. She was wild in high school, and left for California to pursue her singing career.
BABE BOTRELLE Mid 20s. The youngest of the McGrath sisters. She’s maybe a little crazy, but sweet.
CHICK BOYLE 30s. First cousin to the McGrath sisters. She exudes a superficial Southern charm. Self-absorbed, obsessed with appearances.
DOC PORTER 30s. Meg’s ex-boyfriend. Recently returned to Hazelhurst, he is married (to a Yankee!) with children.
BARNETTE LLOYD Mid 20s. Babe’s lawyer. He’s bright and ambitious, working his first real case. He knows how to hold a grudge, and he believes in revenge.

Auditions are open to everyone, however, preference will be given to existing members of the North Vancouver Community Players (NVCP).
