MALE:

Enoch Snow (Supporting):
A young fisherman. Enoch thinks of everything—from money to his potential family size—on a grandiose scale. He falls in love with Carrie Pipperidge and does his best to provide for her. Tenor (B2-A4).

Jigger Cragin (Supporting):
A young whaler and ruffian. A friend of Billy Bigelow’s, Jigger is a mean-spirited man whose vices include drinking, gambling, and lechery. He convinces Bigelow to join him on a robbery to provide cash for Julie Jordan. Baritone.

Mr. Bascombe (Male, Featured):
A wealthy businessman and owner of the town’s textile mill. Stout and proud, Mr. Bascombe expects a high level of morality from his employees. Bass-Baritone.

The Starkeeper/Dr. Seldon (Male, Featured):
The Starkeeper is a celestial being (originally named “Mr. God”) who runs the afterlife and challenges Billy to return to Earth to prove himself worth of entering Heaven. Dr. Seldon is an elderly physician (and quite possibly the Starkeeper in disguise) beloved by the community. Spoken.

FEMALE:

Carrie Pipperidge (Female, Supporting):
A cheerful young woman who works at Bascombe’s Mill. Carrie is quite open about her emotions, and dreams of spending her life in the arms of Enoch Snow. She is also somewhat naïve, but has the best of intentions. Soprano (D4-G5).

Louise Bigelow (Female, Supporting):
Billy and Julie’s fifteen-year-old daughter, who is born after her father’s death. She grows up sullen and hard-hearted due to her father’s reputation as a crook and wife-beater, prompting Billy to return to Earth to help her. Must be an excellent dancer.

Nettie Fowler (Female, Supporting):
Julie Jordan’s cousin, a businesswoman who runs a small seaside resort and spa. A kindhearted lady, Nettie allows Billy and Julie and Julie to stay with her after they lose their jobs. She also serves as Julie’s confidante and source of support after Billy’s death. Mezzo-soprano (C4-G5).

Mrs. Mullin (Female, Featured):
The widowed owner of the titular carousel. Mrs. Mullin has her eye on Billy and, after seeing his affection for Julie, becomes jealous and fires him. She later reappears in an effort to bring him back to the carousel (and possibly her arms). Spoken. NOTE: The roles of Billy Bigelow and Julie Jordan have ALREADY BEEN CAST. Thank you.

ENSEMBLE:
The citizens of the town, including millworkers, fishermen/whalers, parents, policemen, and other adults. There is also a group of featured ensemble members who play various roles in the amusement park at the top of the show, including a Clown, Dancing Bear, and “The Three Beauties of Europe.” The Ensemble must be able to move well; there are opportunities for solos/small roles throughout.

DANCE ENSEMBLE:
Must be excellent dancers with strong ballet/jazz technique who sing well. Both men and women should have partnering experience. Some members of the amusement park ensemble will be taken from this group.

YOUTH ENSEMBLE:
The children of the town, ranging in age from child to mid-teen. Will be auditioned at a later date.
