Characters

 

  • AUNT ELLER - A middle-aged down-to-earth 'mother to everyone'. She is Laurey's aunt and confidante, and has a very friendly personality. ~ Mezzo Soprano, Supporting Female

 

  • CURLY - The young cowman in love with Laurey. His heart is in the right place and he is strong in facing up to Jud. ~ Baritone, Male Lead

 

  • LAUREY - Our heroine. She is confused about Curly and seems always to be waiting for him to make the first move; she is too innocent to see that her acceptance of Jud's invitation will mean trouble. ~ Soprano, Female Lead

 

  • IKE SKIDMORE - A ranch-house cowman. ~ Ensemble

 

  • SLIM, FRED - Cowman friends of Ike and Curly's. ~ Ensemble

 

  • WILL PARKER - A hapless young cowman who is very much in love with Annie. He has a pleasant happy-go-lucky disposition, but needs to assert himself strongly to get her full attention. ~ Tenor, Male Lead

 

  • JUD FRY - The hired hand on Laurey's farm. Sullen, mysterious and dangerous. Nobody likes him and he lives a lonely depressive existence in the smokehouse, dreaming broodily of real women, not the pin-ups on the walls. ~ Baritone, Supporting Male

 

  • ADO ANNIE - A flirtatious girl who cannot resist any man, particularly if a wedding ring is in prospect. ~ Mezzo Soprano, Female Lead

 

  • ALI HAKIM - A Persian peddler and a shrewd salesman. A great one for the girls, but not too adept at avoiding shotguns! ~ Baritone, Supporting Male

 

  • GERTIE - Another flirt whose presence is always announced by her ear-piercing laugh. Like Annie, she just wants to get married to someone. ~ Ensemble

 

  • ELLEN, KATE, SYLVIE,ARMINA, AGGIE - A group of fun-loving farmer's daughters who form the ensemble at the Box Social and the ballet at the end of Act One. ~ Ensemble
