BREAKDOWN
Santa Claus:
Male. Vocal range top: D5, Vocal range bottom: Bb3. Santa Claus has a lot on his plate during the Christmas season, and it is starting to show. He is annoyed with the Elves, tired of lying to Buddy and sad that people seem to be losing their Christmas spirit. He is still the same jolly old St. Nick underneath it all, but the job is getting to him. This is a great role for a character performer who can play an older (and somewhat cranky) man while trying hard to keep his holiday spirit.

Buddy:
Male. Vocal range top: G5, Vocal range bottom: B3. Very tall! Buddy is the perfect elf! He’s good-natured, he means well, and he’s happy& all the time. There’s only one problem. He’s not an elf, he’s an adult human. This role is perfect for a young man who is an excellent actor and good singer who has the energetic earnestness and comedic timing that Buddy needs.

Walter Hobbs:
Male. Vocal range top: E5, Vocal range bottom: B3. Buddy’s real father, is so focused on keeping his job that he is not making time for his family. He can be stern and unemotional at times, but ultimately he learns to recommit to his family. Cast a great actor with a strong, authoritative presence, but be sure they can also show his softer side.

Deb:
Female. Walter’s secretary, has the big responsibility of keeping her boss and the whole office happy. She does this by sharing her positive attitude with everyone. This is a plum role for a young woman with a pleasant demeanor, yet efficient work ethic, who is a solid actor with a good speaking voice

Emily Hobbs:
Female. Vocal range top: D5, Vocal range bottom: G3. Emily Hobbs is Walter’s devoted wife who would prefer her husband to spend a little more time at home. She is a problem solver and an excellent mother who is doing everything she can to provide a positive family dynamic. Cast an excellent actress and singer who effortlessly conveys a sense of maturity and warmth.

Manager:
Male. The manager is a terrific featured acting role for a performer with good comedic timing. As the manager of Macy’s, he’s doing everything he can to make sure all the employees stay in line.

Jovie:
Female. Vocal range top: Db5, Vocal range bottom: G3. Jovie works as a store elf at Macy’s, but don’t be mistaken, she doesn’t quite exude the Christmas spirit. She’s kind of cynical, a bit tough around the edges, and now the target of Buddy’s complete adoration. This is a fantastic role for a young woman with a strong singing voice and acting chops.

Mr. Greenway:
Male. Mr. Greenway is one of the crankiest businessmen around. He is the big boss, with a commanding presence to tackle this acting role.
