Major Roles are listed, although additional bit parts with both vocal and speaking opportunities are available.

Show Director is MaryBeth Topf, Music Director is Janice Westphal, and Choreographer is Rebecca Ruiz.

TULLY (Male - 27-39) Smooth-talking, self-deprecating playboy. He's completely content with the life he's chosen as the singer/ bartender at a tropical resort, until he meets Rachel, a vacationer who upends his heart. ** Guitar skills are useful. Vocal Range: B2-C5

RACHEL (Female - 27-33) Fully committed to her job and helping the world. Willing to put in as many hours of hard work as it takes and expects everyone else to do that same. Suspicious of fools and operators, Rachel is not easily distracted from her life plan. Vocal Range: A3-F#5

TAMMY (Female - 30-39) Loyal friend to Rachel. Sees the best in people and has a zest for life that is often squelched by her fiance, Chad. Her low self-esteem manifests itself as denial in her own life. Vocal Range: B3-F5

BRICK (Male - 30-39) The Island bartender. Has a big heart and a good friend to Tully. Not the brightest bulb, but sensitive and thoughtful. Vocal Range: A2-C5

MARLEY (Female - 40-49) No-nonsense and assertive with an island accent. She runs the resort and keeps everyone in check, but clearly cares about her employees, her customers, and J.D., an older island denizen. Great singer. Vocal Range: G#3-G#5

J.D. (Male - 60-79) A funny, endearing older man who always has a parrot on his shoulder. He's losing his vision and his hearing, but won't acknowledge it. A good-natured drunkard, he's always writing his memoirs on bar napkins and, as it turns out, he's lived a full life. Vocal Range: G2-D4

ENSEMBLE  - Jamal, Ted, Chadd, Goon #1, Goon #2, Wanda the Waitress, Dancing Insurance Salesmen, Lawyers, Investors, Weather Men, Weather Ladies, Vacation Guests at Margaritaville.
