Breakdown:

WINNIE
Female, to play 11. . A little girl without cuteness - she has lost her father. She is
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.
Must have comic timing. 

JESSE TUCK
Male, to play 17. . Light and laughing, he is eternal youth writ large, the lightness shown all the brighter for the shadow of loneliness that he has. Pop tenor. Must sing very well. 

MILES TUCK
Male, 23.  A burned and bitter man. His natural sweetness shut away. Lost his wife and child, doomed to live with regret. Baritenor. Must sing well. 

MA TUCK
Female, 40's. Still beautiful after all these years, a matriarch, a mother, a wife. Her homespun wisdom is leavened by her humor and still girlish delight. 

PA TUCK
Male, 40's.  Once awakened, a vibrant, virile man. He is an indulgent
father, a fond if forgetful husband, but a true soul with a deep well of love and
profound understanding of the life around him. 

NANA
Female, 60's. A loopy old woman, but a loving Grandmother and Mother. Must sing.

MAN IN YELLOW SUIT
Male, 50's - 60's.  Creepy and persuasive, a man with an obsession,
a secret. Must sing. 

HUGO
Male, to play 17. Painfully shy, awkward and goofy; but 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. Must sing well. 

MOTHER
Female, 30's-40's.  A gentle woman almost broken by grief and fear and loss.
Adversity finds her brave and unbending.

CONSTABLE JOE
Male, 60's. Seemingly a buffoon, his simple manner belies a sharp wit
and kind heart.
