Lovelash Character Break Down

Dan (Tenor, 24-32): A Nathan Lane loser type and a recent widower. Slightly overweight,
incredibly awkward, but a genuinely nice guy. His wife, Eileen, of five years past away from a
mysterious ailment and has been unable to get over her. He’s pressured into getting back into
the dating scene with hilarious results.
Trey (Tenor, 24-32): Bold, confident, and a lady’s man, Trey is the “Fresh Prince” of this group of
friends. His girlfriend has gone abroad to seek professional opportunities, leaving them in a
long-distance relationship. Instead of embracing it, however, he maintains an outgoing
demeanour, which gets him into trouble on numerous occasions.
Nat: (Soprano, 24-32): A Cute and bubbly redhead, Nat is hopelessly (and obsessively) in love
with her best friend, Carter. Unfortunately, she has no idea how to approach Carter on the
subject. Although a deceptively confident girl, whenever she’s in his presence, she becomes
extremely nervous. She is irrationally confrontational around Carter’s recent ex-girlfriend, Oli.

Carter (Baritenor, 24-32): A very good looking man a la Ricky Martin or Freddie Prinze Jr., Carter
seems to have his entire life in order. He is, however, hiding the fact that he lives in his mother’s
basement, that he can’t hold on to a steady job, and that he doesn’t even have a driver’s license.
When Oli breaks up with him, his self-esteem goes to shambles. He is completely oblivious to
Nat’s obvious feelings for him as he’s too caught up with setting things right with his ex, who
wants nothing to do with him anymore.
Janet (Alto, 24-32): Essentially the female lead in “She’s All That,” she is very pretty girl hidden
behind glasses, a ponytail, and a plaid sweater. She becomes Dan’s love interest, due to her
striking resemblance to his late wife, Eileen. She’s blunt, dry, and mysterious.
Liz (Alto, 24-32): Gorgeous, independent, and ambitious, Liz is Trey’s girlfriend. She leaves to
pursue a corporate job. Although very serious about her professional ventures, she’s very cute
and loving towards Trey.
Oli: (Mezzo-Soprano, 24-32): Oli is a small girl with a big bark. She is brutally honest, and is very
assertive about what she wants. She is Carter’s ex-girlfriend, and is confrontational around his
best friend, Nat.
Mack: (28-45): The owner of the Mack Shack, he is the typical charming and all-knowing
business owner and bartender. He has an ambiguous partnership with Spinach, his protégé.
Mack acts as the narrator of the show, and doesn’t actively interact with anyone else, except for
Spinach.
Spinach: (22-35): Spinach is to Mack like the Pinky is to the Brain from Animaniacs. Spinach is
Mack’s protégé and co-narrator, but is much more hindering than helpful. Genderless, Spinach
dresses and talks like a Vanilla Ice wannabe, and even raps during the show.
