CHARACTER INFORMATION

Curly McClain (Baritone)- He is a handsome, strong, rough-hewn, clever cowhand in love with Laurey, but refuses to admit it.

Aunt Eller (Mezzo-Soprano)- She is rough with a fair heart that makes her a leader in the community. Good values and a sense of humor. She raises Laurey as her own.
