CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS:

George NovackMale, mid 20’s thru 30’s – The manager of Maraczek’s Parfumerie. He is desperate for love and falls in love with Amalia after meeting her through a Lonely Hearts column. A likeable, somewhat soft-spoken, unassuming, regular guy. Baritone.  No dance experience necessary but should be able to move

Amalia BalashFemale, 20s thru 30’s – A new hire at Maraczek’s Parfumerie who falls in love with George after the two meet through a Lonely Hearts column. Strong willed but shy. Desperate for a both a job (at first) and love overall. Intelligent, bookish, sensitive but strong. Soprano needing ability to sing long lyric lines beautifully. No dance experience necessary.  
Ilona RitterFemale, 30 to 40ish – A cleark at the Parfumerie. Been through many men and longing for the real thing. Has a revelation during the show that she must change. Sensitive and very likeable character. Somewhat sexy and vulnerable. Often played with a character voice but not necessarily so. Mezzo.
Steven Kodaly Male – 35- 50 – A strikingly handsome clerk at Maraczek’s Parfumeriie. A womanizer and cad. Elegant, refined, self assured.. Actor should be confident in the role seducing women in general, Ilona in particular. Tenor with ability to sustain long lines.
Ladislav SiposMale – 30 – 60  – A compliant clerk at Maraczek’s Parfumerie who will do anything not to lose his job. Can be played slightly buffo but should be real character. Confidant of both George and Ilona. Very likeable character. Regular guy with wife and kids. Baritone.
Arpad LazloMale – 17 – 26 – The bicycle driving delivery boy for Maraczek’s Parfumerie, indefatigable, excess energy, boyish and willing, wants nothing more than to become saleperson at the parfurmerie. Strong tenor voice for one very energetic solo.
Mr. MaraczekMale – 45 – 65 – The strict, stubborn owner of Maraczek’s Parfumerie for first half. Undergoes big change. Stern, playful, vindictive, warm, many sides. Baritone for single solo that can be “talked” to certain extent.
The WaiterMale – 30 – 60 – An enigmatic role for an enigmatic actor. Might be played over the top somewhat, intensely romanticized notion of his restaurant, a thoroughly 19th century character, eccentric. Single scene character but can be great. Tenor
OthersWill need a minimum of 6 (at least 3 women 17 and above) more players to double as characters in the restaurant scene, customers in the shop, people on the street. All must be able to sing well. No dance training needed but must be confident can move well and be taught .
