(Note - all characters reside in West Texas, so please be prepared to give us your best "West Texas" accent for auditions.)

Juanita - 40-50 (with the ability to transition to herself 20 years younger): owner of the Five & Dime; a simple Texas woman who is guided by her religious convictions.

Mona (then) - late teens: naive and deeply romantic; imagines herself as different and better than the small town people she grew up with.

Mona - 30s: Fragile; she prefers to live in a dream world and in her memories; has remained in this small town and has changed very little in 20 years.

Sissy (then) - late teens; early 20s; a young girl with dreams of getting out of this small town; aware of her sexuality.

Sissy - 30s: vivacious and outgoing with a quick wit; she appears to be only concerned about her attractiveness and having a good time, but has unexpected depths.

Joe - late teens; sensitive and confused; misunderstood by most except for Mona and Sissy.

Joanne - 30s; mysterious visitor with a big secret; sensual; raised in the area, but escaped to live a different kind of life.

Stella Mae - 30s; loud and boisterous; she appears to have been one of the success stories of the group, but covers up her regrets and longings.

Edna Louise - 30s; pregnant with her 7th child; shy and awkward; simply sweet-natured.
