RALPHIE PARKER – (child lead, age 10 to 12 in appearance.) The hero. Imaginative and adventurous boy who must battle school bullies and convince his parents to buy him the PERFECT Christmas gift. Knows how to tell a joke, can get out of any tricky situation and loves to perform.

RANDY – Ralphie's little brother (age 6 to 8 in appearance.) Smaller than Ralphie; the cuter the better. Can be a bit awkward and offbeat. Admires Ralphie but won't admit it.

FLICK – Ralphie's friend and classmate (age 10 to 12 in appearance.) Skinny; has the look of Alfalfa from "Our Gang." He's the kid who gets his tongue stuck to the pole.

SCHWARTZ – Ralphie's friend and classmate (age 10 to 12 in appearance.) Slightly larger than Flick, a little tougher. He's the kid who "double dog dares" Flick to stick his tongue to the pole.

SCUT FARKAS – A meanie – the bully (age 13 to 15 in appearance.) There's nothing about him you want to like. He's that kid you always made sure to avoid in school.

ESTHER JANE ALBERRY – a classmate (age 10 to 12 in appearance.)

HELEN WEATHERS – a classmate (age 10 to 12 in appearance.)
