(One block south of Spokane Civic Theatre)


  • JEAN SHEPHERD/NARRATOR – A charismatic storyteller who has the ability to weave a spell and draw an audience into his magical world. A good-natured curmudgeon with a deadpan sense of humor. (Age Range 45-60) 
  • RALPHIE – Cute and winsome, but not precious. He’s a bit mischievous and rascally but with a twinkle in his eye. Tap is a plus.  Must appear to be age 9 going on 10. (High belter, unchanged voice, low F# to high D) 
  • THE OLD MAN – A guy with a good heart, through it is buried beneath a sometimes gruff exterior. He’s a devoted husband and father who loves his family but doesn’t overtly show it. (High Baritone or Tenor, must sing to a high G, Age Range 35-50) 
  • MOTHER – More in charge of the family than the Old Man is, but she would never let him know it. A vibrant woman that is always busy. (Contemporary Mezzo with a strong mix, low G to high Db, Age Range 35-45) 
  • RANDY – Ralphie’s younger brother. Admires his big brother but won’t admit it. Tap is a plus.  Must appear to be 7 or 8.  (High belter, unchanged voice, low F# to high C#) 
  • MISS SHIELDS – The local elementary school teacher, prim and proper. In Ralphie’s fantasy she becomes a dynamic, show-stopping, brassy belter and tapper. (Age Range 25-45) 
  • SCUT FARKUS – The textbook example of a school-yard bully, except this truant doesn’t go to school. He is loud, obnoxious and intimidating. Tap is a plus. (Gruff character voice, Age Range 12-15) 
  • GROVER DILL – Always at Farkus’ side is toady, Dill. Much younger and decidedly smaller than Farkus, Dill delights in being tethered to his “hero.” Tap is a plus. (Age Range 9-12) 
  • SCHWARTZ, FLICK, ESTHER JANE, MARY BETH – Classmates. Tap is a plus. (Strong Belt, Age Range 9-14) 
  • SANTA – The Santa Claus at Higbee’s Department Store is decidedly unlike the typical “jolly old elf.” Ill-tempered and slightly inebriated, he is unhappy with his job. (Age Range 30-60) 
  • ENSEMBLE – Boy, Three Girls, Nancy, Bank Tellers, Customers, Tap Specialty Boy, Goggles Kid, Waiter’s Daughter, Eight Elves, Two Delivery Men, Townspeople, Parents, Can-Can Girls, Can-Can Girlfriend, Policeman, Fireman, Doctor, Nurse, Waiter, Villain, Two Bank Robbers, Escaped Prisoner, Bartender (Many roles will be doubled.)
