The following three actors/characters should be thought of first as stereotypes as per the names. We will develop specific traits during rehearsal. A number of characters are animals. However, for this play, the animals have human qualities - good and bad. The actors chosen for the multiple roles will need to convey male and female characteristics and be able to have quick costume changes, sometimes with just a wig or a coat or both. Various accents are helpful.They are in and out of numerous scenes with a few lines, looks, desires.


BIRDER/GAYER/WANNA BE/CHASTITY/JOE - male, over 40.


PAUL ZAHN/BOMBSHELL/BETTY/GAY/BORED/TEEN TANGO/GROWN UP TANGO - female, 30s


​RICHARD/FAT CAT/PORKEY/GAYEST/MAN IN OVERALLS/PREENING - male, 30s
