Reviews

"WONDERFUL! PERFECT! MORE HITS THAN YOU CAN SHAKE A STICK AT! The audience is promised a 'Foot-Stompin', Hand-Clappin', Honky Tonk good time,' and they get it!"

Stage and Cinema

Casting

Lana Mae Hopkins
Female
Lana Mae runs the Wishy Washy Washateria. She’s been in a bad marriage for five years, but is oblivious to her husband’s philandering and cheating. Her thoughts regarding marriage and love are throwbacks to the 50s, as evidenced by her rendition of "Stand By Your Man." It is only when Katie helps show her the truth that she is able to break free of her old thoughts. She dresses brightly and uniquely, her hair is larger than normal, and she lives her life through colorful Southern colloquialisms. Cheerful, bighearted, a real diamond-in-the-rough. Mezzo-alto with strong belt.

Katie Lane Murphy
Female
Katie finds a job working for Lana Mae in the laundry and sets out to help Lana Mae break free from her husband. At the same time, Katie is struggling with her own obsession with her ex-boyfriend, who still figures prominently in her imaginary love life. KATIE is a bit more prim and proper than Lana Mae, with a touch of neurosis thrown in for good measure, and her accent is not nearly as strong. Katie learns from Lana Mae how to open up and face her fears, especially after the "pills kick in." Mezzo-Soprano with strong belt.
