CHARACTERS

PIPPIN - M (18-21) - Our story's young and confused protagonist. He is longing to find his purpose in life. Naive, innocent, and discontent.

LEADING PLAYER - M/F/NB (Mid 20s-early 50s) – (A knowledge of magic and illusion is desired but not necessary) The ultimate 'ring leader.' Masterfully charming and manipulative, the Leading Player is a chameleon of sorts.

CHARLES- M (50-70) – Pippin's demanding father. As the King of the Holy Roman Empire, Charlemagne is more comfortable wielding a sword than breaking bread. He wears his years with great pride.

FASTRADA - F(30-50) – Pippin's conniving stepmother. A seductress, who is no stranger to deceit and betrayal, she is both sexy and smart. Skilled at using her sexual appeal to benefit her and her son.

LEWIS - M (18-30) – (Minimal to non-singing role) Pippin's half-brother. Vain and vacant with an impressive physique, he is a cross between a muscle-head and an ill-developed mama's boy. A pawn in Fastrada's scheme.

BERTHE - F (66) – Pippin's saucy grandmother. A brassy broad full of wisdom, grace, and sass.

CATHERINE- F (25-35) – A young widow and mother. She is a beautiful and hopeless romantic, who possesses graceful elegance.

THEO - M (6-10) – Catherine's son.

FEATURED DANCER - M/F/NB (18+) - Featured Dancers within the ensemble.

FEATURED MAGICIAN - M/F/NB (18+) - Featured Magicians within the ensemble.

ENSEMBLE - M/F/NB (Any Age) - Members of a traveling troupe of players, ever-present, taking on various roles such as Charlemagne's Army, Monks, Nobility, Peasants, etc.
