Buddy: The perfect elf! He’s good-natured, he means well, and he’s happy all the time. There’s only one problem. He’s not an elf-he’s an adult human. Vocal range top: G5, Vocal range bottom: B3
Charlie: In charge of monitoring the other Elves, making sure every present is wrapped and every bow is tied.
Shawanda: A dependable and caring elf. She will do whatever she can to help out others, including Buddy, even though she accidentally reveals that he is a human.
Walter Hobbs: Buddy’s real father, is so focused on keeping his job that he is not making time for his family. He can be stern and unemotional at times, but ultimately he learns to recommit to his family. Vocal range top: E5, Vocal range bottom: B3
Sam: One of Walter’s Office Staff who is in a bind at the top of the show.
Deb: Walter’s secretary who has the big responsibility of keeping her boss and the whole office happy. She does this by sharing her positive attitude with everyone.
Emily Hobbs: Walter’s devoted wife who would prefer her husband to spend a little more time at home. She is a problem solver and an excellent mother who is doing everything she can to provide a positive family dynamic. Vocal range top: D5, Vocal range bottom: G3
Michael Hobbs: The smarter-than-average 12-year-old son of Walter and Emily. He quickly befriends his new adult brother, Buddy, and does everything he can to make sure Buddy becomes a permanent part of the family. Vocal range top: D5, Vocal range bottom: G3
Security Guards: A stern duo from Walter’s office, making sure everyone who enters has permission.
Saleswoman: The first person to greet Buddy as he enters Macy’s. She’s the consummate sales person: smiling, overfriendly, and always trying to sell something.
Manager: The manager of Macy’s, he’s doing everything he can to make sure all the employees stay in line.
Jovie: Works as a store elf at Macy’s, but don’t be mistaken, she doesn’t quite exude the Christmas spirit. She’s kind of cynical, a bit tough around the edges, and now the target of Buddy’s complete adoration. Vocal range top: Db5, Vocal range bottom: G3
Santa's Helper: Works as a Macy’s Employee and announces when each kid gets to visit with Santa. Fake Santa: A poor replacement for the real Santa. He is an employee of Macy’s who is a bit rough around the edges. Fake Santa is a little over-the-top.
Policemen: Are a friendly pair of cops who return Buddy to the Hobbs household. Sarah: A staff member at Walter’s office.
Mr. Greenway: One of the crankiest businessmen around. He is the big boss.
Chadwick and Matthews: Staff members at Walter's office who are doing everything they can think of to save the day and make their boss happy.
Charlotte Dennon: A TV reporter with a big personality. She does her best to keep her professional persona in public and doesn’t like being shown up.
Darlene Lambert and Emma Van Brocklin: On the scene in Central Park and are convinced of Santa’s magic after Buddy reveals their past Christmas gifts.
Santa Claus: Has a lot on his plate during the Christmas season, and it is starting to show. He is annoyed with the Elves, tired of lying to Buddy and sad that people seem to be losing their Christmas spirit. He is still the same jolly old St. Nick underneath it all, but the job is getting to him. Vocal range top: D5, Vocal range bottom: B3
Elves: Santa’s special helpers who love their job making toys to meet their Christmas Eve deadline.
