- Jed: (23-28)An attractive young man who thinks he has it all together. However, is a bit under cultured and a bit oblivious at times. He dresses in jeans, a button up shirt, vest, Converse, and a fedora? He is not dumb, but he is definitely not the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree either. He is driven by his desire to impress Rose. He is generally a very nice person, but he is also very clumsy and often finds himself in awkward situations. He also has a wide range of facial expressions. Has the ability to do comedy.
- Patron 1: (early to mid 40s) She has a deep appreciation for good art. She is very elegant and has a certain air of pompousness around her.
- Waiter: (20-25) A very formal put together kind of person. He appears to be friendly to those he is serving, but there is almost a slight feeling of contempt in him like he thinks he is better than everyone else. This comes out with his interactions with Jed.
- Rose: (23-28) A really sweet, attractive, young woman. She is very artistic and expressive. She has red streaks in her hair that match her red dress. She is a very smiley and has a generally warm personality that just makes people like her.
- Guard: (no older than 40) A very large man who comes off as very imposing at first. He is tall and well built, kind of a bouncer look to him. However we find out that he has no backbone whatsoever. He is no confrontational and is very soft spoken. He is pretty much a walking contradiction because as a large guard we expect him to be gruff but he is truly and pansy.
- John Potts: (early to mid 40s) A rather chubby man who an equally large voice with extreme enthusiasm.
- Hipster: (20-25) A middle aged man with an extremely scruffy and unkempt beard. He dresses in a leather jacket, solid color pants, TOMS/flip flops and a beanie.
- Goth Girl: (16-21) A small younger woman. She is dressed in dark clothes and is wearing darker make-up. Her moods change very quickly from flirty to pissed. Her large voice makes up for her small stature.
- Patron 2: A younger man who is very passionate about art as well. He is well dressed and pompous.
- Old Man & Old Woman: Cute older couple who are always holding hands. The woman is a bit more outgoing than the man who simply smiles. They are no younger than 55 years old.
These are not paid roles.
