NURSE JONES - An impatient, demanding sort of person who will never get used to the antics of the patients. Older than Miss Smith.

MUSIC TEACHER - Large, heavy-chested woman with great and powerful lungs which are used frequently.
HISTORY TEACHER - Dramatic, nervous, erratic woman.
PRINCIPAL - Serious, never forgets that she is the Principal. She is pompous and bigoted.
ENGLISH TEACHER - A joyful person during playtime but is serious when teaching. The chief comedy part.
GYM TEACHER - Preferably a large woman, very dynamic with an abundance of energy who forces her way through life. She is also very coy and bashful during scenes with Dr. Sullivan.
DOCTOR VAN - The leading man, nice-looking, kind and jovial.
MR. ARTHUR - A man about forty-five or fifty; rather dignified, and inclined to be an "I-told-you'so" type, but still likable.
FLORENCE WARE- A petite and chic young woman-not dumb, but never quite knowing just what everything is all about in this asylum.
DOCTOR SULLIVAN - A dandified and pompous man of forty-five or fifty. Always maintains an air of dignity, until he gets the opportunity of trying one of his theories.
