Esther Jane

9-10

This Role Has Been Cast

  • Vocal Range:
    TBD. Strong singer that can hold harmonies

A friend and classmate of Ralphie’s. She is the teacher’s pet. Dancing: tap preferred but not required. Movement skills required.

9-10

This Role Has Been Cast

    TBD. Strong singer that can hold harmonies.

Ralphie’s friend and classmate. Not the brightest kid in class, but confident in his convictions nonetheless. Dancing: tap preferred but not required. Movement skills required.

Grover Dill

9 to 10

This Role Has Been Cast

  • Vocal Range:
    TBD. Strong singer that can hold harmonies.

Much younger than Farkus, but perhaps more annoying, Dill delights in being constantly tethered to his “hero”. As Farkus’ toady, he punctuates the bully’s threats and warnings with a series of rapid-fire belly-laughs. Dancing: tap preferred but not required. Movement skills required.

Jean Sheppard / Narrator

Late 40s to early 60s

This Role Has Been Cast

  • Vocal Range:
    Singing is a plus but not required.

A charismatic storyteller who has the ability to weave a spell and draw an audience into his magical world. He is omniscient but not overpowering – a good-natured curmudgeon with a deadpan sense of humor. He holds the audience with his tremendous presence and spark. He has a great sense of play allowing him to slip in and out of minor roles. Dance ability: none required.

Miss Shields

30s to late 50s

This Role Has Been Cast

  • Vocal Range:
    F#3 to D5 (belt)

The local elementary school teacher. A seemingly stereotypical 1940s educator – prim and proper. Stern when necessary, though warm– and even humorous— when the situation merits it. In Ralphie’s fantasy, she becomes a dynamic, show-stopping belter and tapper — a force to be reckoned with. Dancing: tap skills required.

Mother

30s to 40s

This Role Has Been Cast

  • Vocal Range:
    G3 to D flat 5

The smartest person in the Parker family, and more in charge of the family than the Old Man is (but she would never let him know it). She is warm and affable … at times a bit daffy … but not a pushover. A vibrant woman, she is always busy, and is the secret engine that keeps the family running, keeping the household together with an impressive balancing act. Dancing: Strong movement skills required.

Ralphie

9, going on 10

This Role Has Been Cast

  • Vocal Range:
    F#3 to D5

Bright, but not precocious. Cute and winsome, but not precious. A regular kid you wouldn’t mind having as a next-door neighbor. He’s a bit mischievous and rascally but with a twinkle in his eye and single minded determination to get what he wants. Dancing: strong movement skills, tap preferred but not required.

Randy

7 to 8 (may be played by a 7 to 10-year old)

This Role Has Been Cast

  • Vocal Range:
    F#3 to D5

Ralphie’s younger brother. He’s at the stage of childhood wherein he seems opposed to everything, but he’s still lovable — not a brat. He admires Ralphie but won't admit it. Dancing: strong movement skills, tap preferred but not required.

Scut Farkus

14 to 15

This Role Has Been Cast

  • Vocal Range:
    TBD. Strong singer that can hold harmonies

The textbook example of a school-yard bully, except this truant doesn’t go to school. He is loud, obnoxious and intimidating. Older than Ralphie and his classmates by a year or two, he wears a perpetual scowl. Together with his side-kick, Dill, they are the scourge of the neighborhood. Deep down however, he is a coward. Dancing: tap preferred but not required. Movement skills required.

The Old Man

30s to 40s

This Role Has Been Cast

  • Vocal Range:
    B flat 2 - G4

A devoted husband and father who loves his family but doesn’t overtly show it. He is good-hearted, though it is buried beneath a sometimes gruff (and rough) exterior. While he usually expects the worst, he is capable of great excitement if the situation warrants (though it usually doesn’t). In his moments of fantasy, he is transformed from his usual grumbling blue-collar self to a true song and dance man. Dancing: Strong movement skills required.

Young Performer Chorus

9-10 year olds

This Role Has Been Cast

  • Vocal Range:
    Various ranges. Strong singers that can hold harmonies.

Classmates of Ralphie’s. Dancing tap required.
