TULLY – (Male, age 30-40) Vocal Range: Tenor - B2-C5
Smooth-talking, self-deprecating playboy. He's completely content with the life he's chosen as the singer at a tropical resort, until he meets Rachel, a vacationer who upends his heart. Guitar skills are useful.
RACHEL – (Female, age 30-40) Vocal Range: Soprano - A3-F#5
Fully committed to her job and helping the world. Willing to put in as many hours of hard work as it takes and expects everyone else to do the same. Suspicious of fools and operators, Rachel is not easily distracted from her life plan.
TAMMY – (Female, age 30-40) Vocal Range: Soprano - B3-F5
Loyal friend to Rachel. Cheerful and always ready for a good time. Sees the best in people and has a zest for life that is often squelched by her fiancé, Chadd. Her low self-esteem manifests itself as denial in her own life.
BRICK – (Male, age 30-40) Vocal Range: Bari-Tenor - A2-C5
The Margaritaville Hotel & Bar’s bartender. Has a big heart and is a good friend to Tully. Not the brightest bulb, but sensitive and thoughtful. Willing to put himself out there emotionally and is able to admit when he’s scared.
MARLEY – (Female, age 40-50) Vocal Range: Soprano - G#3-G#5
No-nonsense and assertive with a sharp sense of humor. She runs the Margaritaville Hotel & Bar and keeps everyone in check, but clearly cares about her employees, her customers, and J.D. Speaks with an island accent.
J.D – (Male, age 60-70) Vocal Range: Baritone - G2-D4
A funny, endearing older man who always has a parrot on his shoulder. He's losing his vision and his hearing, but won't acknowledge it. A good-natured drunkard, he's always writing his memoirs on bar napkins and, as it turns out, he's lived a full life.
Jamal – (Male, age 21-40) Vocal Range: Bari-Tenor
Works as both the dishwasher and masseuse at the resort. Fancies himself a real Don Juan. Speaks with an island accent. Speaks with an island accent.
