N/A (Not a musical)

DOCTOR HEINRICH VON SCHTOOPTENSTEIN - bizarre, arden, confused, comical mad-scientist type. Speaks with a heavy German accent. Infamous founder of the private foundation, The Society for the Advancement of Beauty Through Tissue Research. He has an M.D. in biomedical research, a Ph.D. in abnormal psychology, and a doctorate in veterinary medicine. His gray hair is in disarray and he displays behavioral tics. He frequently uses scientific terminology with slips of the tongue. 50 years old.
COQUETTE VON SCHTOOPENSTEIN MULLER (Beauty) - was once married, now divorced, twenty-four year old estranged daughter of Dr. Von Schtoopenstein. She resents her father, but because he is family, she will not tell all, with respect to his experimental deed, even though she was the victim of his experiments. She was not always physically beautiful. In her mind, he has ruined her by experimenting and making her physically beautiful. She does not know that Victor (Beast), whith whom she is in love, is her twin brother. She displays discreet, animal-like behavior, preening herself, somewhat cat-like in nature.
ANNABELLE - a bag lady with more clothes on her back than Bloomindale's has on their racks. Stumbles drunkenly into the convention. She decidedly wears the pants in her household, which now is a cardboard Maytag refrigerator box. Has a wild and beautiful laugh. Underneath there's a lot of hurt. She went mad when Dr. Von Schtoopenstein started experimenting on their two children.
LOUIE - middle-aged, tattered, lovable bagman. Danny DeVito type. Walks with a limp, has very few teeth left. Devoted to Annabelle. A good hearted man.
FRANCES - a drag  version of Herman Munster. A flaming red-headed bombshell. She is Heinrich's own special creation. Her accent is from the Bronx, legs of a Vegas showgirl and biceps of a Dallas Cowboy. Twenty-five years old.
VICTOR - twenty-five year old son of Heinrich and Annabelle. In love with Coquette. He does not speak. He is realistic in appearance as half lion/half man in ragged burlap clothes. He is intelligent, poetic and eloquent.
ARNOLD/ ANN ARMSTRONG - twenty-five to thirty year-old sharp-tongued, syndicated investigative reporter.
CASWELL HUDDLESTONE - a Federal marshal present at this even for purposes of providing undercover government protection. A very suspicious character, not above reproach or incrimination. Tough and unflappable.
