Amalia and Georg work together at a modest Hungarian parfurmerie, and have disliked each other from the very beginning. He thinks she’s stuck-up, and she thinks he’s arrogant and mean. But each rapturously writes to a lonely hearts penpal when the workday is done, not realizing that they are writing to each other. Inevitably, through some of the most iconic songs in the musical theatre canon (Vanilla Ice Cream, She Loves Me, Dear Friend), Georg and Amalia discover the truth and rejoice in their love for each other at the story’s sweet and musically delightful conclusion.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWN

AMALIA BALASH (F) (20-30): Intelligent and skilled new salesperson at Maraczek’s who takes emotional risks in the moment and overthinks them afterwards; well-spoken lover of literature. Vocal range: C4 – B5.
