Role Description

Rose/Pearl/Mary/Worm/Old Woman: (Lead) Requires excellent comic timing, versatility in dialects, impressions, etc. to play five different characters (possibly more if the podcast is successful enough to have a second season in the future), familiarity with 1940's radio comedy would be helpful, but not essential.
The five characters include: Rose Moroni, private eye- cheerful, dedicated, but somewhat naive and gullible except when being frustrated by the much dumber characters around her;
Pearl Necklace, hard-boiled, wisecracking sidekick to Freddie the Ferret, modeled after '30s character actress Joan Blondell (see attached video clip for reference);
Mary O'Brian, sarcastic Irish banker who is also kidnapped by Freddie the Ferret;
Old Woman, an elderly fortune-teller who assists Lord Stitchington- or tries to- in his search for his sister;
Worm, a talking worm who also offers invaluable assistance to Lord Stitchington in finding his sister.
