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. S/he is in charge of keeping the pace of the show moving. This part can be played by either a man or a woman, and can be any age over 40ish. Baritone/Low Alto (D#3 -F#4 -can pop octaves if needed).
Clive Paget/John Jasper:
The Royale's male lead, a devilishly attractive cad, and he knows it. In Drood, he is the antagonist. Choirmaster of Cloisterham Cathedral, and uncle of Edwin Drood. In love with Rosa Bud. Madness lurks beneath his smooth exterior. 35-50ish. Bari-tenor (A2 -A4).
Victor Grinstead/Neville Landless:
Victor is enjoying his premier performance with the Music Hall
Royale. His character, Neville, is Helena's twin brother. Very passionate and often angry. 25-50ish. Bari-tenor (C3 -G4), strong ensemble singer.
Cedric Moncrieffe/Reverend Crisparkle:
This troupe member is a bit of an open book who plays an
archetypal vicar, who is also a bit of a lurker, and was in love with Rosa's mother. Must be significantly older than Rosa. Baritone (C3 -G4), strong ensemble singer.
Devotee of the theatre, the everlasting understudy, who finally gets his moment. May have quite a major part if the evening turns out that way. Any age. Bari-tenor (A2 -Eb4 [opt G4 or Bb4]).
Nick Cricker, Sr./Durdles:
"Clown Prince of the Royale" who makes the most of every line and plays the drunkard sexton in Drood. Over 30. Baritone or Tenor (B2 -F4) -ensemble singer.
Nick Cricker, Jr./Deputy:
Boy, any age younger than Cricker, Sr. As the Deputy, lowest in the pecking order, and very funny. Any voice range -ensemble singer.
