LIST OF ROLES: Some roles listed are doubled Ensemble

EBENEZER SCROOGE: Male, 50s or older. Scrooge is a grumpy old man who’s buried a lot of memories by focusing only on his work and material success. Vocal Range: A2-F#4.

BOB CRATCHIT: Male, 30s or older. Bob is a good-natured and hard-working man, doing his best to stay positive while supporting a large family and working for a difficult boss. Vocal Range: C3- Gb4.

FRED: Male, 20s and up. Fred is the opposite of his uncle Scrooge— upbeat and optimistic, he celebrates his life, even though he’s not well off financially. Vocal Range: C3-G4.

YOUNG EBENEZER: Male, late teens-early 20s. Unlike his older self, Young Ebenezer tempers his drive to succeed with a dash of wide-eyed romance. Vocal Range: C3-G4.

BELLE: Female, late teens-early 20s. Belle is the girl of Young Ebenezer’s dreams, who falls for him but is strong and independent enough to walk away when he chooses work over her. Vocal Range: B3-E5.

ELIZABETH: Female, 20s and up. Elizabeth is Fred’s better half; confident and strong, a modern woman who isn’t afraid to let her voice be heard. Vocal Range: B3-E5.

TINY TIM: Male, between 8-12. Tiny Tim is Cratchit’s partially crippled son who still believes in everything around him, despite his physical condition. Vocal Range: D4-D5.

GHOST OF CHRISTMAS PAST: Female, late teens and up. The Ghost seems soft and airy, but her questioning of Scrooge intentionally causes him to address memories he’d be happier to push aside. Vocal Range: B3-F5.

GHOST OF CHRISTMAS PRESENT: Male, adult. Loud and boisterous, the Ghost lives in the moment but mixes his good nature with a serious understanding of the weight of time. Vocal Range: Ab2-Gb4.

JACOB MARLEY: Male, 50s or older. The ghost of Jacob Marley shows the tragic end of a life lived like Scrooge’s. He deals in heavy emotions at all times— anger and anguish mostly. Vocal Range: C#3-Eb4.

OLD JOE: Male, 50s or older. Old Joe is a street person with a wicked sense of humor who’s not afraid to engage in some dirty business. Vocal Range: A2-E4.
