Director: James Walsh / Choreographer: Brian Viccaro. Character Descriptions:
Chip Tolentino - An athletic, social, boy scout and champion of the Twenty-Fourth Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, he returns to defend his title, but he finds puberty hitting at an inopportune moment.
Logainne Schwartzandgrunenierre (schwartzy) - Logainne is the youngest and most politically aware speller, often making comments about current political figures. She is driven by internal and external pressure, but above all by a desire to win to make her two fathers proud. She is somewhat of a neat freak, speaks with a lisp, and will be back next year.
Leaf Coneybear - The second runner-up in his district, Leaf gets into the competition on a lark and finds everything about the bee incredibly amusing. He is home-schooled and comes from a large family of former hippies. He has severe Attention Deficit Disorder and spells words correctly while in a trance.
William Barfee - A Putnam County Spelling Bee finalist last year, he was eliminated because of an allergic reaction to peanuts and is back for vindication. His famous "Magic Foot" method of spelling has boosted him to spelling glory, even though he only has one working nostril and a touchy, bullying personality. He develops a crush on Olive.
Marcy Park - A recent transfer from Virginia, Marcy placed ninth in last year's nationals. She speaks six languages, is a member of all-American hockey, a championship rugby player, plays Chopin and Mozart on multiple instruments, sleeps only three hours a night, hides in the bathroom cabinet, and is getting very tired of always winning. She is the poster child for the Over-Achieving Asian, and attends a Catholic school called "Our Lady of Intermittent Sorrows." She is also not allowed to cry.
Olive Ostrovsky - A young newcomer to competitive spelling. Her mother is in an ashram in India, and her father is working late, as usual, but he is trying to come sometime during the bee. Having found comfort in its words and vastness, Olive made friends with her dictionary at a very young age, helping her to make it to the competition. She starts enormously shy, and shyly blossoms.
Rona Lisa Peretti - The number-one realtor in Putnam County, a former Putnam County Spelling Bee Champion herself, and the returning moderator. She is a sweet woman who loves children, but she can be very stern when it comes to dealing with Vice Principal Panch and his feelings for her. Her interest in the competition is unflagging and drives it forward.
Douglas Panch - The Vice Principle. Frustrated with his life, he finds the drive of the young spellers alien to him. After five years' absence from the Bee, Panch returns as judge. There was an "incident" at the Twentieth Annual Bee, but he claims to be in "a better place" now, thanks to a high-fiber diet and Jungian analysis. He is infatuated with Rona Lisa Peretti, but she does not return his affections.
Mitch Mahoney - The Official Comfort Counselor. An ex-convict, Mitch is performing his community service with the Bee, and hands out juice boxes to losing students. He has no idea how to offer comfort, but does find himself wishing he could find a way to make the kids feel better.
Carl Dad - Schwarzy's main trainer, the more intense and competitive of Schwarzy's fathers. Normally played by actor playing Leaf.
Dan Dad - the more laid back and ineffectual of Schwarzy's fathers. Normally played by the actor playing Mitch.
Jesus Christ - Deity invoked by a speller in need. Normally played by the actor playing Chip.

Hester Prynne (20’s) Hester is the protagonist of the story. She is a married woman left alone by her husband Roger Prynne who later changes his name to Roger Chillingworth to disguise his association with Hester. During his absence Hester committed adultery with the Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale. She does, however, desire and love him. The outcome of this affair was a daughter, Pearl, and an outraged Puritan community. Hester however is rebel of her day. She is a feminist, religious dissenter, estranged wife, abandoned lover, and devoted mother. Through the character of Hester Hawthorne points out the hypocrisy of the Puritan society. Hester is a woman of strength, independence, benevolence and kindness. Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale (Late 20’s early 30’s) A Boston reverend who secretly has had an affair with Hester Prynne and is the father of Pearl. Dimmesdale is loved and respected by his public. He is selfish and frightened to expose his sin and endure punishment with Hester. He punishes himself by self-flogging and fasting and eventually realizes that his guilt of selfishness and betrayal are far greater than the punishment he could have shared with Hester. He is so plagued with guilt that he becomes ill, and dies of his own pride.
Roger Chillingworth (50’s) Roger is a scholar who married Hester before going to Boston. He is an older man with a forbidding, haunting and ice-cold presence. He married Hester for reasons other than love.
Chillingworth recognizes that the love Hester has for Dimmesdale is humiliating and tormenting him and he swears to punish them. He is arrogant, twisted, bitter and villainous. These characteristics exacerbate through the story.
Pearl (7-10) The illegitimate daughter of Hester and Dimmesdale. She is the “scarlet letter” endowed with life. She is Hester’s strength, love and also her triumph. Hester loves Pearl unconditionally and accepts Pearl as a rebellious and devilish spirit. Pearl’s character is a symbol of the victory of love over a repressed and oppressive Puritan society.
Governor Bellingham (Late 50’s) He is the brother of Mistress Hibbins. He is an example of hypocrisy in puritan society. For others, he punishes those who do not abide by puritan rules of behavior yet he himself acts as a noble, enjoying money, luxury and power. In the novel he accuses and executes his own sister of practicing witchcraft.
Mistress Hibbins (40’s) The sister of Governor Bellingham. Very eccentric and bizarre to the point that the people in the town think that she is possibly possessed by the devil (“Black Man”). An example of this is she invites Hester to witches’ meetings in the forest. Pearl becomes fascinated by Mistress Hibbins. She often speaks of the “Black Man” to people in the village.
Goodwife Robson & Goodwife Doolittle (both between 35 to 45). Both are bitter women, who are full of fear and uncertainty. They are typical of the village person who is full of bigotry and hatefulness due to the fact that they are unable to understand beyond the confines of her knowledge of the world, therefore they cannot connect with people who are different than themselves like Hester or Dimmesdale. They both feel no significance so therefore are negative forces in this society.
The Beadle (40- 50) A guard and official designated to keep order in the town during town proceedings. The beadle represented the laws of the Puritans, and it was his job to deliver the punishments they required. He was a grim figure, with a sword by his side and the staff of office in his hand.
The Blacksmith (40-50) He is a good and hard-working man of the village who left for a time (7 years) to work in Boston. He is a man who knows the history of the village and knows how the people in the area think and behave. His character also importantly indicates the passing of time for the audience.

Jerry Lukowski : An unemployed mill worker. 30-40. Jerry is a complex emotional character with serious heart and charisma, and genuine tenderness for his son – a regular guy. Vocal Range: Rock Tenor, with a strong controlled falsetto.
Nathan Lukowski: Jerry's young son. Age 12. “12 years old going on forty” but young looking for his age. Nathan can be stoic, sincere, and charming, but ultimately real as he deals with his parents' custody battle. Vocal Range: age appropriate.
Pam Lukowski: Jerry's estranged wife, Teddy's fiancée. 30-40. In some ways Pam has become a realist. She earnestly wants Jerry to be an active parent for Nathan, but wrestles with strong reservations about his character and her own lingering feelings for him. Vocal Range: Alto with mezzo with belt.
Dave Bukatinsky: An unemployed steel worker. 30-40. He struggles with unemployment and its effect on his marriage. A lovable, good-natured soul, with body weight and self-esteem issues. Must be comfortable enough with your belly to proudly wield it in all its glory. Vocal Range: Lyric Tenor with strong falsetto.
Georgie Bukatinsky: Dave's wife. 30-40. A warm, down-to-earth soul that isn't afraid to kick up her heels. Her exuberance opens the show and sets the place and mood perfectly! Her reality comes in dealing with her hubby's struggles and trying to hold her marriage together. Vocal Range: High alto/broad mezzo belter.
Malcolm MacGregor: An unemployed mill worker. 25-40. His frank self-assessment neglects to mention his sweetness and sincerity. Malcolm transforms from desperately lonely to deeply loving. Vocal Range High Tenor, smooth falsetto, C#3-E5.
Ethan Girard: An unemployed steel worker. 25-40. Ethan remains an optimist while struggling with unemployment and friendship. He energetically attempts wall-walking a la Donald O'Connor's 'Singing In The Rain' acrobatics. He loves simply, and openly. Good physical comedic role. Vocal Range: High baritone/tenor.
Noah “Horse” T. Simmons: A retired African American mill worker. 50+. Gentle demeanor. Seemingly, his “break-dancing” days are over until he breaks out. Excellent mover with great dead-pan comedy. Vocal Range: Baritone/Tenor.
Harold Nichols: An unemployed mill supervisor. 35-60. He is a doting, prideful husband who is determined to keep his wife be-decked in upper middle class luxury – in spite of 6 months of unemployment. Aloof at first, his dance skills are what finally brings “Hot Metal” alive. Vocal Range: High baritone/tenor.
Vicki Nichols: Harold's wife. 30-55. Charming and energetic, she loves Prada ensembles. But, not more than she loves her husband. Flamboyant on the surface, her love and understanding are real. Classy, but easily one of the girls. Comedic triple-threat. Vocal Range: High alto/broad mezzo belter.
Jeannette Burmeister: The piano player. 50+. She's seen it all. She’s got show-biz running through her blood. You can't shock her, but she'll shock you as she says what's really on her mind! Shows up with a piano to play for the guys totally out of the blue. Vocal Range: Low alto belter.
Teddy Slaughter: Pam's fiancé. 35-55. The opposite of Jerry – clean-cut, well-off. Singing and harmonies required.
Buddy 'Keno' Walsh: Handsome and experienced gay male stripper. 21-32. With his ambitions he won’t be a Chippendale-esque performer forever. Singing and harmonies required.
MALE & FEMALE ENSEMBLE: May double in other roles. Various age, vocal ranges, and types.
