NCT 2017 SEASON and Character Breakdowns


Directed by Jack Neary
July 6-15


(rehearsals begin June 27)

FROGGY LESUEUR: (40-50s)A British military demolitions expert and Charlie's caring friend. Cockney Accent.

CHARLIE BAKER: (30-40s) A science-fiction copy editor who is a pathologically shy little man with little personality.

BETTY MEEKS: (60-70s) The proprietor of a Georgia fishing lodge and a long-time friend of Froggy. She is pleasant, wise, and naïve all rolled into one. She is a good-hearted, generous, “down-home” Southerner.. 

REVEREND DAVID MARSHALL LEE: (30s) He is neither the stereotypical pallid young divinity student nor the hearty backslapping evangelist. Reverend David is a very likeable guy who is not what he seems to be. 

CATHERINE SIMMS: (30s) She is a formidable force and engaged to Reverend David. She is occasionally almost too much for the good reverend to handle. She has a ready wit and a sharp tongue. She badly needs someone to talk to.

OWEN MUSSER: (40-50s) The Tilghman County property inspector, Owen is a two-tattoo man: one of them, he may have gotten while drunk or on a dare; two of them means he went back for more. Beware of a two-tattoo man. 

ELLARD SIMMS: (20s) Catherine's brother, Ellard is an agreeable young man who is a bit slow-witted. He works as a sort of handyman for Betty and needs a considerable bit of instruction in his tasks, but may not be as dull as he seems.
