Shows "O"

Curly and Laurey drive off on their honeymoon, "in a surrey with the fringe on top". CHARACTERS • AUNT ELLER - A middle-aged down-to-earth 'mother to everyone'. She is Laurey's aunt and confidante, and has a very friendly personality. • CURLY - The young cowman in love with Laurey. His heart is in the right place and he is strong in facing up to Jud. • LAUREY - Our heroine. She is confused about Curly and seems always to be waiting for him to make the first move; she is too innocent to see that her acceptance of Jud's invitation will mean trouble. • IKE SKIDMORE - A ranch-house cowman. • SLIM, FRED - Cowman friends of Ike and Curly's. • WILL PARKER - A hapless young cowman who is very much in love with Annie. He has a pleasant happy-go-lucky disposition, but needs to assert himself strongly to get her full attention. • JUD FRY - The hired hand on Laurey's farm. Sullen, mysterious and dangerous. Nobody likes him and he lives a lonely depressive existence in the smokehouse, dreaming broodily of real women, not the pin-ups on the walls. • ADO ANNIE - A flirtatious girl who cannot resist any man, particularly if a wedding ring is in prospect. • ALI HAKIM - A Persian peddler and a shrewd salesman. A great one for the girls, but not too adept at avoiding shotguns! • GERTIE - Another flirt whose presence is always announced by her ear-piercing laugh. Like Annie, she just wants to get married to someone. • ELLEN, KATE, SYLVIE,ARMINA, AGGIE - A group of fun-loving farmer's daughters who form the ensemble at the Box Social and the ballet at the end of Act One.
