Please arrive early to fill out an audition form.
A long term Mayor usually runs unopposed, but when he makes a major faux pas he finds himself with a fierce opponent; his wife. (PG)
Sofia Storm – F, 52. Longtime first lady of Anderson. Educated, articulate, left-leaning; polished, graceful, and tired of being underestimated.
Liddie Valentine – F, mid-30s. Sofia's younger best friend and default manager. Take-no-prisoners, witty, far more leftist and far less graceful than Sofia.
Ted Wink – M, 20s. Sofia and Liddie's yoga instructor. Peacenik and zen-lover.
Sam Storm – M, 50s. Mayor of Anderson, incumbent mayoral candidate. Good old Southern boy; smart, protective, often clueless about how to interact with the strong women in his life.
Jimmy Benjamin "J.B." Jackson – M, 20s/30s. Henry's campaign manager and lapdog. Nervous, neo-Conservative, jumps at loud noises.
Savannah Storm – F, 22. Sam and Sofia's rebellious daughter. Bright, active, college senior; does not take kindly to the idea about being used for the political gain of either of her parents.
Setting: Small town Anderson, Georgia, in the year 2010
