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. The actor playing Liam must be dynamic, sincerely charismatic and infinitely loveable. They must understand their bodies and voice to be able to create and crystalise the real and fantasy worlds inhabited by Liam.
All ethnicities considered.
Patrick: (Tenor G2-Bb5) Father to Liam and husband to Christine. He is your average working class man. Blue collar and salt of the earth .He works as a mechanic and is hard on himself for not being able to always understand Liam or provide Liamwith everything he needs.

All ethnicities considered.
