Post So Tell Me About Rosie...
...because my town's community theatre is holding auditions for the show, and for the first time in a long time, a female lead character is an alto! (Namely, Rosie) Just like I am. So tell me about her character, personality, what does she sing, who does she interact with, what's her story line, etc. Fill me in!

There are two film versions you could rent - she's hispanic, she's fiery, but deep down inside she just wants to marry an English Teacher. She's in love with Albert Peterson, who is a mama's boy, and also the manager of the hottest act around (Conrad Birdie, who is a broad take off of Elvis.)
