Chairman/Mayor Thomas Sapsea:
The leader of the music hall troupe. The Chairperson carries the majority of the dialogue and must be quick with a joke and able to improvise.

The not-so-innocent ingenue of the Music Hall Royale, Deirdre
portrays the love interest of Drood, the young, beautiful and apparently fragile Rosa Bud. 18-30ish. True soprano (A3-B5), with a high B natural that can't be avoided.

As the mysterious Princess Puffer, Madam, opium dealer and general purveyor of vice of all kinds, she is glamorous in her ruin. Over 50. Serious low alto (F3 -D5) - must have a big chest voice and lots of rapport with the audience.
