Character Breakdown -
Calamity Jane (Low G (Opt. F) to D Flat (Opt. E. Flat) The hard-bitten, gun-totin' heroine, who tries to behave like a man but can't help loving like a woman. In order to hold her own in a man's world, she dresses, speaks, rides and shoots like a man ; groomed and dressed in proper feminine fashion, she is revealed as a beautiful girl-and the transformation is quite startling.
Wild Bill Hickock ( B Flat to E Natural) - Aged about 35, and a handsome figure of a man, he is an ex-peacc-officer turned professional gambler. Good-natured, with a sense of humour. In love with Calamity Jane, but doesn't know it.
