You are a variety agent. You are a loud, brash Australian and should speak with an Australian accent. Unfortunately, you have a few people who do not like you and you are murdered during the evening. The evening has been arranged to celebrate your birthday. As a variety agent, you have many acts on your books and you have invited your top acts along to celebrate your birthday. You have invited the Glenn Miller sound-a-like, Chattanooga Choo Choo, to sing for you tonight. Chattanooga Choo Choo are going to be big and are going to make you a lot of money.
Should you meet these other characters, these are your feelings towards them. Glennis Miller (Singer with Chattanooga Choo Choo) -You think Glennis is by far the best singer in the group and you would make a lot more money if she were to go solo. You should be extremely nice to her when you meet her. Shirley Bossy (Singer with Chattanooga Choo Choo) – She has too much to say for herself. You would prefer it if she were to leave the group. Sammy Quaver (Singer with Chattanooga Choo Choo) – You think his singing is awful and he is really holding back Chattanooga Choo Choo. Pantanos DaGreasy (Musician With Rival Group Touch & Go) – A nasty piece of work. You are frightened of him and would not work with him in a million years. Fabio DaGreasy (Musician With Rival Group Touch & Go) – A seemingly harmless character, but very unstable; he could flip any time. Deep down he’s a DaGreasy, which means trouble.
Your lines are enclosed. You should try to learn your lines, if possible. However, do not worry as there will be a member of the cast with you all the time to help you if you forget any of them. You will be given a microphone to use and you should remember to talk directly into the microphone. It is important that you can be found when it is your turn to do something and not elsewhere – Thank you..
