Esther Smith: (Keeley Adkisson) Esther is a year and three months younger than Rose, attractive and effervescent. She tends to look up to Rose and clings to her in time of trouble. She, too, wears the same costume in the first two acts and something very "special" in the last act.
SONGS: "The Boy Next Door"; "The Trolley Song"; "Over The Bannister"; "Have Yourself a Merry little Christmas"; "You are for Loving"

SONGS: "Over the Bannister"; "Reprise The Boy Next Door"; "You Are for Loving"
Mr. Smith: (Brad D. Fowler) He is in his forties, a kind, generous, loving father and a successful business man, to boot. He wears a business suit throughout, and may change for the last act.
SONGS: "Wasn't it Fun?"; "A Day in New York"
Mrs. Smith: (Joy Adkisson) She, too, is in her forties, an attractive woman, with a firm but gentle manner. She has graciousness and charm, which the years and raising a family have mellowed. She wears the same costume in the first two acts and may change to something a little dressier in the third act.
SONGS: "You'll Hear a Bell"; "Wasn't it Fun?"; "A Day in New York"
Rose Smith: (Whitley Fowler) She is the oldest of the girls, eighteen, and the beauty of the family. She has a loyal, loving nature--and also a bit of a temper. She wears the same costume in the first two acts and changes to a very "special" one for the Fair in the final act.
SONGS: "A Raving Beauty"; "A Touch of the Irish"; "Skip to My Lou"; "A Day in New York"
Lon Smith: (Hunter Dotson) He is the oldest in the family, nineteen. Lon is good looking and athletic. He wears sporty-looking collegiate clothes in Acts One and Two and changes in the last act to a more formal-looking suit.
SONGS: "The Banjo"; "Skip To My Lou"
Agnes Smith: (Isabella Bankston) She is about two years younger than Esther and inclined to be a tomboy. Agnes is independent and forthright, and greatly admired by Tootie. Her costume and appearance are somewhat mussed upon her first entrance. She changes in the last act to one of her "best" dresses.
SONGS: "Under the Bamboo Tree"
Tootie Smith: (Ansley Potter) Tootie is the youngest in the family, a bright-eyed, serious faced youngster with a slightly macabre sense of humor. She wears the same costume in the first two acts and one of her "best" dresses for Act Three.
SONGS: "Drunk song"; "Under the Bamboo Tree"
Grandpa: (Floyd Walker) He is a spry old gent in his seventies, with a neat white beard and mustache. The children adore him and never tire of hearing his "tales." He may wear the same costume throughout the play.
SONGS: "A Day in New York"
Katie: (Virginia Church) Katie is ageless; she might be anywhere from forty-five to sixty--you can't tell. She is good-humored, generous loving--and Irish. Her brogue is slight but musical. Through out the play she wears a neat house-dress with a voluminou apron over it.
SONGS: "A Touch of the Irish"; "A Day in New York"
Lucille Ballard: (Lindsey Fowler) She is eighteen, a very pretty but decidedly affected girl from the East. Her manner in front of the boys is arch and coy. Her clothes are very expensive and the very latest in fashion. She may change for each act.
Conductor: (Logan Fagin) This part is not listed in the cast of characters, as he makes only a brief appearance at the curtain of Act One. He wears a streetcar conductor's uniform, with his cap pushed back on his head at a wild angle.
Warren Sheffield: (Jacob Sapp) Rich love-interest of Rose.
SONGS: "A Raving Beauty"; "Skip To My Lou"
Eve Finley: (Kiley Huddleston) (southern accent) Strong, frank, women's lib type

Sidney Purvis: (Sid Yadav) Poor dancing comedic role.
Ensemble: (Emily Stephens, Melody McElroy, Mackenzie Boggs) Party guests, carolers, trolley passengers
