CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS:
Ralphie Parker– age 9-14: Strong but with dry comedic timing. Thinks he’s older than he is. A 5th-grade boy who wants an Air Rifle for Christmas: specifically the Red Ryder Carbine Action BB Gun. He is a bright, mischievous, cute kid…someone you wouldn’t mind having as a next-door neighbor.

FEATURED ADULTS:
Ralph Narrator– Adult: Ralphie as an adult, and the narrator of the play. Clear radio type voice.
My Old Man– Adult: Ralphie’s father. Gruff and grumbling. Does the same motions every day. He ultimately gets Ralphie the Red Ryder BB gun.
Mother– Adult: Ralphie’s mother. She cares about him and is willing to conceal the truth of his fight from his father. Kind and loving Donna Reed type but with a little sass.
Dept store Santa– Adult: Not your traditional Santa character. Been in the “business” too long. Slightly impatient.
Miss Sheilds– Adult: Ralphie’s elementary school teacher. Discipline and stern.

FEATURED KIDS:
Flick– age 9-14: A classmate and best buddy of Ralphie’s; Flick is the guinea pig in the flagpole licking experiment. The actor playing this role should be able to sustain and communicate with a serious lisp!
Schwartz- age 9-14: A classmate and best buddy of Ralphie; Schwartz becomes the scapegoat when Ralphie utters an unmentionable word.
Randy– age 7-12: Ralphie’s younger brother, he is cute, cuddly, lovable and whiny– like most baby brothers! He looks up to his big brother, tries to keep up with him. Always feeling left out.
Esther Jane-age 9-14: Female classmate. Wants to be with the rest of the kids.
Helen– age 9-14: Female classmate.
Skut Farkus– age 10- 15: Schoolyard bully. Kid with a bad attitude and always down for a fight or chase.
