Show Information - As a girl, Violet was struck by a wayward axe blade when her father was chopping wood, leaving her with a visible scar across her face. With enough money finally saved she's traveling across the Deep South in 1964 towards a miracle – the healing touch of a TV evangelist who will make her beautiful. Although she may not succeed in having the scar on her face healed, Violet is able to repair those scars that are lying deeper than her skin. On the way, she meets a young, African-American soldier whose love for her reaches far past her physical "imperfections."

Character Descriptions Violet The title character, a young North Carolina woman whose face was scarred in a childhood accident. She is stubborn and prickly, but filled with equal parts hope and obsession that she may heal and be made beautiful. Gender: Female Age: 20 to 35 Vocal range top: F5 Vocal range bottom: G3 Flick An African-American soldier; a dreamer and go-getter. He doesn't enjoy the army, but enjoys the respect it garners him. There is something gentle, good about him, not to be interpreted or confused with weakness or lack of authority. Gender: Male Age: 20 to 30 Vocal range top: E6 Vocal range bottom: C4 Monty A paratrooper and Flick's friend from basic training. Rough around the edges. Self-consumed, but not necessarily purposefully so. Fighting his own demons. Gender: Male Age: 20 to 30 Vocal range top: G5 Vocal range bottom: A3 Young Vi Not quite as guarded or prickly as her older self, but still tough and stubborn. She has a keen curiosity and the rough edges of being brought up solely by her father. Gender: Female Age: 10 to 13 Vocal range top: E5 Vocal range bottom: A3 Father A simple, widowed man who lovingly raises his daughter alone doing the best he can with the little knowledge and resources he has to do so.

Gender: Female Age: 55 to 65 Vocal range top: E5 Vocal range bottom: F3 Preacher An impassioned, theatrical man who preaches with all the bravado he can muster. Once had a true healing touch but has lost it in his quest to become a showman. Dismissive and egotistical. Gender: Male Age: 30 to 40 Vocal range top: G5 Vocal range bottom: B3 Virgil The Preacher's assistant. Knows the smoke & mirrors of the Preacher's show and must begrudgingly deal with anyone who might derail it.
