Aurora (Rory) (F, 18-30) A young woman on the edge of her 21st birthday, looking for adventure. She feels overly sheltered and is excited to get out and see the world. An excellent singer in both pop and musical theatre styles, good dancer.
Charming (M, 18-35) This elf wannabe is overly good-natured and a people pleaser. Setting off to prove his worth to Santa he discovers love, his natural inner warrior, and his true identity along the way. An excellent singer in both pop and musical theatre styles, good comic timing, dance a plus.
Flo (F, adult) The “pink” fairy is yoga obsessed and believes meditation can solve the world’s problems. Nobody ever sees it coming, but when she freaks out, she FREAKS out. Strong singer, good at harmonies, can dance, good comic timing.
Fanny (F, adult) The “green” fairy is a little uptight and prefers to play by the rules. She gets very nervous when things are outside the norm and only bends the rules when cakes are involved. Strong singer, good at harmonies, can dance, good comic timing.
Mary (F, adult) The “blue” fairy is always cheerful and believes that a smile can heal anything. Very sweet and truly doesn’t understand how people can be annoyed with her (not that she lets it bother her). Strong singer, good at harmonies, can dance.

Bartol (Any gender, 16+) This snowman meets Charming in the forest and befriends him. A chattery, fame obsessed snowman who is envious and obsessed with their cousin Olaf, of Frozen fame.
