- Carol: The boss elf. A female Ebenezer Scrooge, at least in demeanor. She is an elf. She is grumpy for many reasons that will be revealed in the musical. This character carries much of the show and must be a strong speaker and confident role player. Her "Big Deals!" are like Scrooge's "Bah Humbug!" Her costume is that of lead elf.
- The Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future: These three characters should be a lot of fun for actors to develop. They should go over the top in costuming and ghostly voices. You could go many directions with their characterizations. One might be a 1940s gangster type. Another might be a pirate, a cowboy, a doctor, a dentist, or a more traditional ghostly character. Be creative in costuming and in executing of lines and staging.
- Elves: There are scores of elves, as many as you would like. A few have very distinguishing characteristics that make them "different" from the more traditional elves. All can be played by boys or girls. Change the names as you wish.
- Timothy Elf: He has big floppy ears like a bunny.
- Oliver Elf: He has big mouse ears.
- Ellen Elf: She has a Rudolph-like red nose.
- Johnny Elf: He has a stovepipe hat and perhaps a carrot nose.
- Annie Elf: She wears a curly red wig.
- Other Elves: Paul, Becky, Webster, Maria, Tommy. Use as many elves as you'd like. You could even divide up the lines to create more speaking roles.
- 6 Mean Kids: (more or less) To tease Carol in the scene from Christmas past.
- In addition to the above, the production guide contains suggestions for the Set and Staging, as well as an Introduction and Conclusion.
