Cast of Characters
Charles Marlow - The hero, a handsome, well-educated, well-bred scholar. He is rather a rogue (pick-up-artist) to women of lower social class, to make up for being a painfully shy, bumbling fool among ladies of quality. This is a challenging role; the actor must be able to play both sides of the character convincingly, and manage to be attractive and sympathetic despite being a bit of a foolish jerk. (M- 25-35)
Constance Neville - Kate's dear friend and niece of Mrs. Hardcastle, who is trying to marry her off to Tony, to keep her inheritance in the family. Deeply in love with George Hastings, who wants to elope with her. Sweet, spunky, but slightly more conventional than Kate. (F- 20-30)
George Hastings - Marlow's friend and travel companion, and secret suitor to Constance, Kate's friend and step-cousin. He is well-educated, well-bred and kind, cares deeply for Constance, and wants to elope and get her away from her domineering Aunt. (M- 25-35)
Tony Lumpkin - Over-indulged, immature, dim-witted, under-educated oaf, stepson of Mr. Hardcastle, coddled favorite of his wife. With all his loutish behavior, and his practical joke that sets the plot in motion, he isn't a villain and has a good heart somewhere underneath. (M- 20s)
Mrs. Hardcastle - One of the great comic battleaxe roles in all of theater. Vain, selfish, devious, foolish, she tries to pretend that her son Tony is not yet of age so she can control him and marry him off to Constance for her fortune. She is the closest the play has to a villain, but she is too ditsy to be really evil. Plum role for a good comic actress 'of a certain age'. (F- 45-65 but will kill anyone who suggests she's over 38)
Mr. Hardcastle - Old-fashioned country squire, but warm, intelligent and very fond of his daughter Kate.
Sir Charles Marlow - Old friend of Mr. Hardcastle and father of Charles Marlow; a small part to be cast from the ensemble. (M- 50-70)
Ensemble - Tony's friends - patrons of the local pub, the pub proprietor, various servants.

Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She's unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other's lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda's extraordinary personality. Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing, however – the school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don't abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils' saving grace!
