Male Roles: Must be able to sing!
Jimmy – a gruff bar owner with nothing but displeasure of even the word Karaoke (This role has been cast)

Elvis – 20-60 – A guy who resembles Elvis and ‘channels’ him when he sings
Computer Nerd – 20-40 – His world revolves around karaoke, hardware and the latest programming available. He has only one love bigger than karaoke, and that is the city librarian.

Trixie – 25-35: Jimmies love of his life – ditzy new jersey type glamour girl who made a big splash of glitz in the Las Vegas Bowling circles.
Loretta – 20-45: A country western singer who wants nothing more than to be discovered so she can get out of her double wide and onto the stage in Vegas. Former girlfriend of Jimmy’s. The relationship did not end well.
Liz the Librarian: 20-45: Liz goes from the very timid mousy librarian to the hot sizzly madonna when it’s her turn to sing!
Suzie: 20-35: Stephan’s biggest cheerleader of all – she is just sure he’s the winner of everything.
