Character Breakdown

AMBER VONTUSSLE
A prom queen nightmare! She is definitely “The Corny Collins Show” favorite, but she is
competitive and has a bad attitude.

CORNY COLLINS
The host of “The Corny Collins Show,” and a Baltimore celebrity. Foremost, Corny is a
charmer.

COUNCIL MEMBERS- BRAD, TAMMY, FENDER, SKETCH, SHELLEY, IQ,
BRENDA and LOU ANN
The famed teenage performers on “The Corney Collins Show.”

EDNA TURNBLAD
Tracy’s loving mother who doesn’t spend much time outside the house. She works days
and nights as a laundress in her home, and her lack of social interaction has made her a
bundle of nerves.

LINK LARKIN
Baltimore’s biggest heartthrob, and Tracy’s dream guy. Link is considered the best
performer in town. Think of any teenage idol who is able to reduce girls to tears there’s your
guy!

LITTLE INEZ STUBBS
Seaweed’s little sister and a great breakout role

MOTORMOUTH MAYBELLE
is the face of the Civil Rights Movement and sings the beautiful anthem, “I Know Where
I’ve Been.”

MR. PINKY
Owner of a ladies’ clothing shop and is a salesperson inside and out he is always the first to
give a compliment.

PENNY PINGLETON
Tracy’s fun and sheltered sidekick. She is a young lady caught between her mother’s very
strict rules and her own wants and desires to be just another teenage girl.

PRUDY PINGLETON
Penny’s eccentric but loving mother, who wants the best for her daughter but is extreme in
her means.

SEAWEED J. STUBBS
The object of Penny’s affections, and together, they are determined to defy the
segregation laws of the 1960s.

THE DUNAMITES ((JUDINE, KAMILAH & SHAYNA)
A dynamic musical trio, iconic of the Motown era and the 1960s. Like The Supremes.
Range: E4-A5

TRACY TURNBLAD
A young lady with big hair and an even bigger personality! She is the hero of our story and
she is sweet but also strong in her convictions. She could be bigger in size than the other
girls, or just different. but she isn’t shy about it she can still dance with the best of them!

VELMA VON TUSSLE
A carbon copy of Amber just twenty years older and meaner! She is most concerned with
making sure her daughter wins Miss Teenage Baltimore.

WILBUR TURNBLAD
Edna’s loving husband and Tracy’s supportive father who just wants the best for his girls
