    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.

    Irving Kreller:
    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.

    Zelda Kreller:
    Cindy’s stepmother. Strong, agile, tends to be shrewish. The leader of the family. Fifties.

    Golda Kreller:
    Cindy’s stepsister. Short, plump. Late twenties. Who should contrast strongly with…

    Della Kreller:
    Cindy’s other stepsister. Tall and thin. Acid-tongued. Both anxious to find husbands though their prospects are slight.

    Chuck Rosenfeld:
    Very handsome and charming. Around 22.

    David Rosenfeld:
    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.

    Ruth Rosenfeld:
    Chuck’s mother. Elegant, well-groomed, far more sophisticated and “social” than her husband. Fifties.

    Girl Storyteller:
    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.
