11 roles

JENNAFemale20-39 y.o.All ethnicities

A waitress at Joe’s Diner. A woman stuck in her life: unhappily married and unexpectedly pregnant. Finds some joy and expression through her meticulous baking of pies and her friendships with coworkers, Becky and Dawn. Lives life paycheck-to-paycheck, day by day, and wants to get away and start fresh, unbeknownst to her abusive husband, Earl. Mezzo-soprano F#3-F5.

BECKYBoth genders40-59 y.o.All ethnicities

A waitress at Joe’s Diner. She is irreverent, snarky, been there, made it back, and somehow kept her sense of humor. She is honest and loyal to her gals at the diner. Vocal range: Eb3-E5.

DAWNBoth genders20-39 y.o.All ethnicities

A waitress at Joe’s Diner. Endearing and genuine. She is eccentric, wonderfully unusual, and a bit of a nerd who has spent too much time alone watching The History Channel. She sets the tables, painstakingly ensuring each salt and pepper-shaker is equidistant from the napkin holder. Vocal range: G3-E5.

CALMale40-49 y.o.All ethnicities

A chef at the diner. A “Salt of the earth” guy’s guy surrounded by gals. Brash, impatient, unsentimental, but somehow charming. Vocal range: D3-F4. Note: This role engages in a scene of staged intimacy involving close proximity, kissing, and simulated sexual activity. No nudity or undress.

JOEBoth genders60-79 y.o.All ethnicities

The owner of the diner where Jenna, Dawn, Becky, and Cal work. A seemingly old, curmudgeonly man who has a soft spot for Jenna (and her pie): he wants her to succeed in life and be happy. Gruff exterior but warm at heart. Joe is a sarcastic and no-nonsense guy with a keen ability to read people. Vocal range: B2-G#4.

EARLMale20-39 y.o.White / Caucasian

Jenna’s husband. Earl is an almost talented musician who peaked in high school. He’s handsome in a gruff way, but that face is clouded with broken dreams, drowned in cheap beer. Publicly, Earl turns on the charm but privately he is a nightmare narcissist, exploding into unexpected anger one second and turning into a sobbing mess the next. And Jenna bears the brunt of his unhappiness. Guitar playing a plus. Vocal range: Eb3-G4.

POMATTERBoth genders30-49 y.o.All ethnicities

Jenna’s gynecologist turned lover. He’s endearing, genuine, and awkward. He is clumsy in manner and a bit neurotic, with a quirky sense of humor and a big heart. Vocal range: Bb2-Bb4.

OGIEBoth genders20-39 y.o.All ethnicities

Absolutely smitten with Dawn after a 5-minute date, he will do anything in his power to win her over including showing up to the diner unannounced and making up poems on the spot. Extremely quirky (amateur magician, competitive clog dancer, only eats white food on Wednesdays), incredibly persistent, yet always kind. Vocal range: C3-F4.

ENSEMBLEMale20-49 y.o.All ethnicities

Essential to the storytelling of the production, the ensemble are Jenna’s muses, Joe’s Diner Customers, a trio of pregnant women, Nurse Norma, Francine Pomatter and more. Some Ensemble members will also understudy principal roles. As characters comprising the community in which the story takes place, ensemble members should be strong movers who excel at storytelling choreography.
