We've done some shoppin' for ya
Ivanna Katenka is the ultra-mysterious airport security clerk. Far from a femme fatale, she is feared by most and has an intense anger management problem. She is the somewhat tolerable neighbor of Gretchen Audigger.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Any type of uniform-like costume (i.e. a white shirt and black pants with a fake arm band or badge.)
Gretchen Audigger is a former barista from the local coffee shop in the tiny town of Gladerock. After meeting her wealthy fiancé 2 years ago, she’s become the town’s ultra-glamorous pampered princess. Her prior sugary sweet disposition has melted into a foul, ill-mannered spirit recently. Nonetheless, Gretchen is anything but boring.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Semi-formal cocktail party attire.
Originally hailing from Eastern Europe, Inga Federov is the town of Gladerock’s personal trainer and serious fitness guru. If you need advice on exercise, diet or overall fitness…she’s your girl! Just don’t let her overly-friendly and fake persona get to you as she does have overall good intentions.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Any type of warm-up suit or athletic attire.
DR. INDY JONAS
Ancient History Professor
Dr. Indy Jonas is the arrogant, over-exaggerating Ancient History professor at Gladerock College. Dr. Jonas can win you over with a little Australian charm, but don’t be fooled; Dr. Jonas cares about one thing and one thing only…Dr. Jonas.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: An archeologist / rugged explorer costume.
The Italian heart-breaker - Micha Angelo - is the charismatic yet eccentric artist. Micha sometimes sings instead of speaks and quickly blames the outburst of song on his/her inner artist.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Very trendy attire. A beret and sketch pad as optional props.
This French Canadian, Billie Benjamins, recently moved to the tiny town of Gladerock. Nobody truly knows Billie’s intentions, but s/he is supposedly a professional fund raiser from a big city. Some of the locals believe s/he is hiding something.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Conservative suit and tie (for a male).
Details, details, details! If you’re speaking to Poindex Boinkerton, you better get ready for a plethora of intricate fine points and facts! This is one over-explaining member of the Nerd Herd - a computer support team in Gladerock - that’s always ready to travel to your home to remedy your technological ailments!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Nerdy attire. The nerdy-er, the better! Glasses with tape on the bridge & a protractor and calculator as optional props.
Day Spa Owner
Originally hailing from the UK, Dorie Laxx traveled to America to implement her dream of owning a luxurious Day Spa. She’s a tad snooty and a bit of a one-upper but this relaxation Queen really knows how to make her customers feel like royalty!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Very casual attire - a terry robe & slippers or a terry warm up suit and slippers.
PAUL A. TISHON
Mayor of Gladerock
There are two sides to the seemingly shy and reserved Mayor Paul A. Tishon…and only one of them you would ever care to be on! If you have something to offer Paul, he’s the nicest and most accommodating man you’ll ever meet. However, if you cross him, his mean spirits will rise to the occasion to greet you.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Very conservative suit.
Owner of Gladerock Coffee Shop
The mayor seems to have everything under control in the tiny town of Gladerock, but everyone knows that it’s really Cara Melate that runs the town! A tad neurotic and overbearing, this Barista Queen is the owner of the upscale coffee shop - the Gladerock Café. She doesn’t care to admit it, but she’s the estranged cousin of the pampered princess, Gretchen Audigger.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Semi-formal cocktail party attire. Any items (i.e. flyers, coupons, name tags, employment applications, etc.) with ‘Gladerock Café’ as optional props.
Sardo Shadespeare is a brilliant actor on stage, but in person, he’s the most timid and reserved person you’ll ever meet! Sardo’s sultry Spanish accent, however, is more than enough to win over the ladies but the theater is Sardo’s true love. During social gatherings, Sardo can’t help but break out into random Shakespearean monologues!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Any type of Shakespearean Style Costume. Study a few Shakespearean monologues (optional) for added fun!
Criminal Defense Attorney
‘Liar, liar, pants on fire’ was certainly made up about Wilshi Lyalot, Esquire. If freedom is your desire, this is one obnoxious criminal defense attorney you’ll want on your side of the courtroom, even if you are guilty of murder! Wilshi makes ambulance chasers look like peace corps volunteers!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Business suit. Fake business cards as optional props.
CHIEF C.R. BADGES
Chief of Police
You would never guess that such a meager self-questioning man could climb his way into such a high ranking position with the police force! Chief C.R. Badges is a kind-hearted gentleman who swore to serve & protect, but sometimes he finds it difficult to do so with a self esteem approaching absolute zero!
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Police uniform. Toy (fake) gun as a prop.
Isabell Ivory is the sarcastic housekeeper for Gretchen Audigger. She is a five time widow that moved to Gladerock a few years ago and absolutely despises everyone. Maybe her issue of low morale stems from the fact that she works for Gretchen?
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: French Maid Outfit (or other custodial-style attire).
Professor and Avid Bird Watcher
Avy Aries is the absent-minded colleague of Dr. Indy Jonas at Gladerock College. An ornithologist (bird scientist) by profession, he also has an intense hobby of bird watching in his spare time. If you want to know anything about birds, he’s the world-renowned expert. Avy’s enormous government grants for his bird research make Dr. Indy Jonas look like a small-timer to their superiors at the college. Because of this, Indy and Avy are notorious rivals.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Bird watching attire. Optional to have binoculars and fake birds as props.
Owner of Gladerock Jewelry Store
If you looked up narcissism in the dictionary, Jade Silverman’s picture would be plastered by the description. Jade is the friendly yet self-loving neighborhood jeweler with a slight over-exaggeration problem.
COSTUME SUGGESTIONS: Business casual attire. Various pieces of costume jewelry as optional props.
