Character Breakdown

  • Liam: (Tenor G5–A5) An 18 year old boy with severe autism. He is non-verbal, in a wheelchair, and has a difficult time communicating to others unless he has his laptop to type on. Liam has a very vivid and wild imagination and when he is alone on stage he can speak to the audience just like he is an average person. Liam loves make believe, especially stories involving knights and princesses.
  • Patrick: (Tenor G2-Bb5) Father to Liam and husband to Christine. He is your average working class man. He works as a mechanic and is hard on himself for not being able to always understand Liam or provide Liam with everything he needs.
  • Christine: (Mezzo C3-D4) Mother to Liam and wife to Patrick. Works as a server at a restaurant but has not worked in several months as she has needed to stay home to help take care of Liam now that he has finished high school. She is very protective of Liam and has a very special connect with him through the daily routine that they share everyday as well as the medieval fantasy stories that she reads him.
  • Lance Donovan: (Baritone G2-G5 or Mezzo, range dependant) A fabulously slimy television personality who is only focused on ratings and success. Host of “The Lance Donovan Show” an extremely popular daytime talk show filled with only shock value teasers and sob stories. Driven entirely by ego and fame. Open to exploring gender fluid casting.
