Available Roles:

  • Winnie – (13-18) Lead, Soprano (A3-E5). Actor should be able to play 11 (No taller than 5’2”).  A little girl who has lost her father; too skeptical for her age, but with an unknown longing for romance and adventure. Must sing very well and be a subtle actress with the ability to hold a stage. Comic timing and ability to move a plus.

  • Jesse Tuck – (16-22) Lead, Tenor (F3-C5). Must be able to sing, move well and play 17. The youngest of the Tuck family; light and laughing, he is eternal. His lightness shines through all the brighter for the shadow of loneliness inside him.

  • Mae Tuck (40-55) – Lead, Mezzo-Soprano (A3-E5). Mae is the Tuck Matriarch, Jesse’s Mother, and Angus’s wife. Her homespun wisdom is leavened by her humor and still girlish delight. She is beautiful after all these years.

  • Angus “Pa” Tuck (40-55) Tenor (E3-B4). Once awakened, a vibrant, virile man; he is an indulgent father, a fond, forgetful husband, but a true soul with a deep well of love and profound understanding of the life around him.

  • Miles Tuck – (18-27) to play 23 Bari-tenor (F3-C5). 23-year-old Lead. Jesse's older brother, a burned and bitter man living with regret; his natural sweetness shut away after losing his wife and child.

  • The Man in the Yellow Suit (45-69) Lead, Tenor (G3-B4). The creepy, persuasive and nefarious leader of a traveling carnival, in search of the fountain of youth. He is a man with an obsession who holds onto a secret.

  • Constable Joe – (60-69) Supporting, tenor (F3-B4). Seemingly a buffoon, his simple manner belies a sharp wit and kind heart; Head of the police force in Treegap.

  • Hugo (16-22) – to play 17; Supporting, tenor (G3-C5) painfully shy, awkward, and goofy. Smart and eerily observant; his father (Constable Joe) knows this. The two of them have a routine that fools most of the people all of the time.

  • Nana – (50-72) Supporting, Alto (A3-C#/Db5). Winnie’s Grandmother and Mother to Betsy Foster. A loopy old woman, but a loving grandmother and mother.

  • Betsy Foster (35-45) Supporting, Mezzo-Soprano(A3-E5) Winnie’s Mother, a gentle woman almost broken by grief and fear and loss. Adversity finds her brave and unbending.

  • Ensemble (Up to 12 members) character roles/singers/dancers/movers including: Carnie, Various Memories, Spirits, Travelers, Townsfolk, Carnival Workers, and Patrons. The chorus functions as the audience’s gateway into the past and future, representing the passage of time by singing and dancing the physical expression of the joy and energy we all have when we are most alive and free.
