Almost eighteen. Pert, tomboyish, very cute.
Twenty or so. Great charm and sympathy with a touch of wistful sadness and gentle humor. Any ethnic background.
Cindy’s Papa. Gentle with a sense of humor, surrounded on all sides by females. Slight Jewish accent which tends to grow heavier every now and then. Fifties.
Cindy’s stepmother. Strong, agile, tends to be shrewish. The leader of the family. Fifties.
Cindy’s stepsister. Short, plump. Late twenties. Who should contrast strongly with…
Cindy’s other stepsister. Tall and thin. Acid-tongued. Both anxious to find husbands though their prospects are slight.
Very handsome and charming. Around 22.
Chuck’s father. In his fifties. A warm, friendly man who hasn’t forgotten his humble origins regardless of his wealth. A definite Jewish feel to his personality.
Chuck’s mother. Elegant, well-groomed, far more sophisticated and “social” than her husband. Fifties.
A very important role for a dancer, singer, comedienne, who comments on the show, is in charge of changing scenes and doubles as “The Good Fairy.” Any ethnic background.
2 Boy Storytellers:
Her agile singing and dancing assistants. Any ethnic background.
Note: To simplify directions, STORYTELLERS are referred to in the book as “GIRL,” “BOY 1 and BOY 2.”
