NELLIE LOVELACE - typical heoine of a melodrama: beautiful, graceful, long blonde hair, and a lovely voice.
ADAM OAKHART - a handsome but rugged son of the soil. All that a hero should be.
IDA RHINEGOLD - big, buxom, dark, and vampirish. She should be on the plump side and able to sing old-time songs.
MUNRO MURGATROYD - the villain, tall, dark, and handsome, with a deep throaty voice, beetling brows, side-burns, and a curled mustache.
MOOKIE MAGUGGINS - the hired man, the comic relief, lanky, freckled, with red hair and a front tooth missing.
WIDOW LOVELACE - a gentle old lady, white-haired, soft-spoken.
MRS. ASTERBILT - a commanding dowager, bustle, big picture hat, long kid gloves, etc.
LEONIE ASTERBILT - a sweet young thing with a bird-like manner, trips about the stage as if she were going to take wing. Should be able to sing.
FLEURETTE - a burlesque French maid, coquettish, with dark, long lashes.
LITTLE NELL - may be any age so long as she is small of stature. Lisping, childish, cute, should be able to sing.
