MARY LENNOX – Female, 10 (Range: Young Voice, Ab3-D5) Proper British Dialect
A ten year-old girl sent to live with her uncle, Archibald, when her parents die from cholera in India. Quite the curious explorer, and often finding herself in trouble. Stubborn and always fighting for what she believes in.
COLIN CRAVEN – Male, 10 (Range: Young, unchanged Voice, A3-E5) Proper British Dialect Archibald’s ten year-old son. Spent his life in bed due to a heart condition. He is very stubborn and throws temper tantrums to get what he wants. He believes his father hates him for causing Lily’s death.
LILY – Female, 28-38 (Range: Soprano, Bb3-D6) Proper British Dialect
Mary’s aunt and Archibald Craven’s wife. Died of a tragic accident within her garden and metaphorically haunts the walls of Misselthwaite Manor.
ROSE LENNOX – Female, 28-38 (Range: Soprano, A3-D6) Proper British Dialect
Mary’s mother. A “ghost” from the past who doesn’t understand how her sister Lily could truly love Archibald.
CAPTAIN ALBERT LENNOX – Male, 30-40 (Range: Tenor, D3-A5) Proper British Dialect
Mary’s father. Also, a “ghost” from the past.
ARCHIBALD CRAVEN – Male, 35-45 (Range: Baritone, C3-A4) Proper British Dialect
Mary’s uncle and lord of Misselthwaite Manor. He has a hunch-back. Haunted by the past and afraid of the future, he locks himself away both physically and mentally. Mary painfully reminds him too much of his wife, Lily, who died ten years ago.
DR. NEVILLE CRAVEN – Male, 35-45 (Range: Baritone, C3-F#4) Proper British Dialect Archibald’s brother. Trapped by the idea that he is responsible for the caretaking of Colin. Even though he was never loved back by Lily, he is still in love with her. This adds to his unwillingness to move on and leave Misselthwaite.
MRS. MEDLOCK – Female, Age Flexible (Range: Ensemble/Part/Flexible) Proper British Dialect
Archibald’s housekeeper. As cold as the Misselthwaite Manor.
BEN WEATHERSTAFF – Male, Age Flexible (Range: Ensemble/Part Flexible, E3- D#4) Yorkshire Dialect
Head gardener. Secretly entrusted to take care of the garden after Lily’s death. Knows a great deal about the history of the garden and the grounds it sits on. He has worked for the family for many years.
MARTHA – Female, 18-30 (Range: Mezzo-Soprano Belt, G3-D5) Yorkshire Dialect
A faithful housemaid. Grew up near Yorkshire and has the accent to prove it. Although she is from a lower class family, her wisdom is often far beyond her age.
DICKON – Male, 16-25 (Range: Tenor, D3-G4) Yorkshire Dialect
Martha’s younger brother. Looks after the sick plants and animals within the Misselthwaite grounds—including Mary. He is a young man who is between the world of child imagination and adult reasoning. Befriends Mary and convinces her to take care of the Garden.
MRS. WINTHROP – Female, Age Flexible (Range: Ensemble/Part Flexible) Proper British Dialect
Headmistress of a private school. Prides herself on nurturing girls with tempers. Mary seems to be more than she can handle.
