11 roles

Willie BakerFemale18-25 y.o.All ethnicities

Leading role. 18+ to play 16 at the start of the play. “Not quite out of the awkward stage, she is tomboy and coquette, raucous and gentle by turns.”

Mrs. BakerFemale46-54 y.o.All ethnicities

Leading role. Willie’s mother, a widow, who runs the hotel dining room. “Her voice is rather sharp, but one would guess her to be kind at heart. She gives the curious impression of being both hard and human at the same time.”

Elvie RappFemale30-39 y.o.All ethnicities

Elvie is “a morbid, ill-looking girl.” Has an eerie presence that can be disconcerting.

HattieFemale40-49 y.o.All ethnicities

Described as “Uncle Jim's housekeeper” she’s too domineering to take orders easily, and never hesitates to speak her mind with Jim. They bicker lovingly like a long-married couple.

OpalenaFemale20-29 y.o.All ethnicities

Hattie’s daughter, a charming young woman with an outgoing personality and fine singing voice. She sings a few a cappella folk songs with vigor and charm. An accomplished musician is preferred.

Mrs. ClovisFemale40-59 y.o.All ethnicities

An acid tongued gossip. Mrs. Clovis appears in the play's first scene only and may be asked to u/s Mrs. Baker.

“Boy” HuntingtonMale20-24 y.o.All ethnicities

Leading role. Described as “22, boyish–rather rough”. Boy is immature, indecisive and appealing.

Uncle Jim ThompsonMale55-56 y.o.All ethnicities

Leading role. “Watt Jim”, past 55. Warm-hearted, gentle man. Willie's uncle, and brother of Mrs. Baker. Proprietor of the St. Francis Hotel.

Osment/LoomisMale50-59 y.o.All ethnicities

Osment is a garrulous gossip with a big laugh and a sense of humor. Loomis is unsavory, unappealing, described in the text as “fat, gross, dirty”.

Clovis/GradenMale50-59 y.o.All ethnicities

Graden has a good sense of humor. He enjoys arguing with Uncle Jim and pretends to be innocent but may be quite sly.

Sheriff Beach/Bill WadeMale30-39 y.o.All ethnicities

Tall and sturdy, thinks a lot of himself.
