SMITTY
Early 20s. Secretary at World Wide Wickets. Wisecracking and worldly. Sings where she speaks – alto with strong, traditional belt to Bb/C. NO POP BELTS PLEASE.

HEDY LA RUE
30s. Cunning bombshell. Gorgeous woman who uses her looks and sexuality to get what she wants.

MISS JONES
30s–50s. The head secretary. Tyrant who relishes her limited authority and lords it over the other employees. Character soprano and/or high belty mix.

PIERREPONT FINCH
Early 20s. Clever young businessman, eager to climb the corporate ladder to success. Has a façade of innocence and charm. High baritone or tenor, with clarion G.

J B BIGGLEY

BUD FRUMP
20–30s. Boss’s conniving nephew. Will do anything to get a promotion. Jealous of Finch and anyone who stands in his (Bud’s) way. Characterful high baritone or tenor with a commanding G; an unexpected dramatic soprano.

TWIMBLE / WHOMPER
One actor plays both. Twimble: Head of the mailroom at World Wide Wickets for 25 years; consummate “company man”. Whomper: The Big Boss. Self-made man. No nonsense or pretense.

BERT BRATT
