Major characters

Georg Nowack - Georg, the main male character, works at Maraczek's Parfumerie and is an anonymous pen pal of fellow employee Amalia Balash. Even though they despise each other at work, they eventually develop a good relationship with each other by the end of the play (last name pronounced "No'-vack").
Amalia Balash - Amalia, the main female character, joins Maraczek's Parfumerie after she persuades a customer to buy one of the new musical cigarette boxes. She is the secret pen pal of Georg, though they can't stand one another at work. Halfway through Act Two, she begins to reconsider Georg after he brings her vanilla ice cream while she was at home with a fever.
Ladislav Sipos - A fellow employee of Maraczek's Parfumerie, Sipos is a true friend to Georg Nowack. He's very concerned with having a true "perspective" at work. He's also equally firm on his creed, which is (in the final line of his Act One solo): "Do not lose your job."
Arpad Laszlo - Arpad is the youngest employee at Maraczek's Parfumerie. He rides a bike to work as a messenger for the shop. By Act Two, he gains Mr. Maraczek's respect and is promoted to the post of salesman.
Ilona Ritter - As one of the female employees at Maraczek's Parfumerie, Ilona is a dedicated worker. She has an off & on relationship with Steven Kodaly, but in the end, things just don't work out. She does find true love in the form of an optometrist she meets at the library.
Steven Kodaly - Steven Kodaly works at Maraczek's Parfumerie for most of the play. He has a relationship with Ilona Ritter for most of the play, but in the end, he can't live up to her expectations. He is fired and leaves before the Christmas season.
Mr. Maraczek - Mr. Maraczek is the boss of a parfumerie that bears his name. He watches over everything at his store, seeing that every cosmetic is sold. In the Act One song, "Days Gone By," he relives his youth by teaching Georg how to dance.
