Mama Rose - (40-60) Huge lead/Star role, should be a Strong Mezzo/Alto with good low notes and belt

Louise - (18-28 ) Mezzo (needs a light sound for "Little Lamb" and belt for "Let Me Entertain You"). Needs to be comfortable with stripping.

Dainty June (16-24) Mezzo/Alto (should be flexibile and have some dance experience)

Herbie - (40-60) Baritone

Tulsa - (18-30) High Baritone with strong dance skills

Baby June - (6-10) Mezzo, with strong dance/performance skills

Young Louise - (10-14) Mezzo

Tessie Tura - (20's to 40's) Mezzo Belt with Ballet (Stripper)

Mazeppa - (20's to 40's) Alto Belt, possibly with trumpet-playing ability(Stripper)

Electra - (20's to 40's) Character Mezzo with Belt
