Roles: (all roles are being offered for ages 13-18)
Albert Peterson - Conrad Birdie’s agent. He is a nervous, excitable man who spends most of his time trying to control the uncontrollable, with quite comic results.
Rose "Rosie" Alvarez - Albert’s girlfriend and secretary. She is frustrated with Albert’s inability to commit to her, and is willing to do anything it takes to get Albert to give up the music business and settle down. Headstrong and confident.
Mae Peterson - Albert’s controlling mother. She loves her son, despite her disapproval of the way he runs the family business. She does not approve of Rosie. She is always parenting Albert and provides much comic relief during the show.
Conrad Birdie - teen heartthrob who has been drafted into the Army. He says little, but conveys much with his body language, swagger, and music.
Kim MacAfee - A self-confident young member of Conrad’s fan club who is chosen to receive a kiss from Conrad before he leaves for the Army. She sees herself as more mature than the average teenager.
Hugo Peabody - Kim’s devoted steady boyfriend who is jealous that Conrad is getting so much attention from Kim.
Mr. Harry MacAfee - Kim’s father. Thinks he is in control of his family (but isn’t). Must be able to find the comedy in his character’s frustration and irritability.
Mrs. Doris MacAfee - Kim’s loving mother who knows just how to handle her husband and her household.
Randolph MacAfee - Kim’s younger brother. Precocious, practical and “wise beyond his years” smart son.
Ursula Merkle - Kim’s best friend. The hyper-enthusiastic teenager who leads the girls in screaming for Conrad.
The Mayor - head figure of Sweet Apple, Ohio who welcomes Conrad Birdie to town. A bit naïve to the effect Conrad has on the girls of the town.
Edna - the Mayor's wife. One of the adults of the show who cannot resist the charms of Conrad Birdie.
Gloria Rasputin - Ambitious woman who Mrs. Peterson chooses to replace Rosie. She is looking for her big break in show business and hopes Albert can help her. Tap dancer.
Mrs. Merkle - Ursula’s overbearing mother who also gets a touch of Conrad Birdie fever.
Mr. Johnson - Harvey’s father and one of the many parents in Sweet Apple desperate to keep control of their children as Conrad Birdie comes to town.
Charles F. Maude - Owner of “Maude’s Roadside Retreat”, the bar where Rosie ends up after storming out on Albert. (part of quartet)
