- Maria is a sweet young postulant whose love of freedom makes it obvious to her superiors that she is not suited for religious life at the Nonnberg Abbey. Maria is full of energy, passionate, country girl who has a charming but gawky, awkward physicality and personality, naive, naughty, witty, strong-minded, and tomboyish. Needs to have an obvious connection with children and an ability to relate at their level. Age: 21-25
- A retired very wealthy Austro-Hungarian Naval Lieutenant Commander, distinguished, active, handsome, highly organized and regimented, efficient and very smart. The Captain is a widower with seven children who is strong and firm with a hidden softness. Age: 35-40
- A true big-hearted mother figure, loved, adored and respected. Age 45+
- A very wealthy widow, who is president of her late husband’s corporation. Elegant, sophisticated city person. Clever and canny and very much into making a good social arrangement Age: 35-45
- A theatrical agent and First Secretary of Education and Culture- personal friend of von Trapp and a sort of uncle to his children. He is clever at his job, witty and charming though quite pushy to get what he wants. We are not sure whose side he is on until the last moment. Witt and humor personality of the show. Age: 40-50
- Eldest daughter of Von Trapp. Innocent, naïve, infatuated with Rolf, pretty but unsophisticated and tends to think everything is wonderful. She has a maternal edge to her and cares very deeply for her younger siblings. Growing up fast with no maternal role model, she represents the juvenile romantic plot. Age: 16-17
- The other part of the juvenile romantic plot is the blonde telegram delivery boy friend of Liesl. He's self-important, boasting, a very pleasant young man, somewhat aggressive but in a gentle way. Rolf has Hitler as his paternal role model and the Nazi regime as a future goal. He seems to know an enormous amount of what is going on because of his job and seems to relish his spying tactics. Age: 17-19
- No nonsense type, officious and very strict. Not a supporter of Maria. Age: 40+
- Kind and understanding supporter of Maria. Age: 25+
- Dutiful and kind-takes the middle road to avoid controversy. Age: 35+
- Tough exterior, very much trying to be “the man” of the family; desperately needs his father. Age: 14-15
- Likes to play tricks on people and is quite a tomboy; Rebellious attitude. She misses her mother a great deal. Age: 13-14
- Sweet, gentle and charming, he takes to Maria more quickly than the others. Age: 10-11
- She is a smart avid reader, always says what she thinks and observes well. She is suspicious of ‘Uncle’ Max. Age: 9-10
- Very inquisitive, smart and gentle. Age: 7-8
- Sweet and loving-doll-like and wants attention. Must have the cute factor. Age: 6-7
- Originally a sort of protector to Captain Von Trapp in the Navy, he is now retired into this position as valet, which he carries out with somber efficiency. He is humorless and appears harmless but underneath we discover he is secretly plotting with the Nazi party Anschluss and might have become a major threat had the family not escaped. Age: 45+
- Going slightly deaf, very little personality; she does her job efficiently but without affection. She is strong and somewhat dominating. She has been around a long time and hates the way she is treated with whistles by the Baron. It affects her dignity. She appears to be a thoroughly reliable member of the staff and respected by all. Although this character doesn't traditionally sing in the show, this role could be doubled as part of the nun ensemble. Age: 50+
- Ursula is a servant in the von Trapp household. The new postulant is a smart, well-dressed young girl who has a walk-on moment only-no dialogue. These roles can be split and can be a part of the nun ensemble. Age: 17-20
- The Gauleiter-a sort of district governor appointed by the Nazi Regime to prepare the Anschluss. He is overbearing, arrogant and autocratic, self-important and pompous. Stern and unsmiling, a typical Nazi official whose primary concern is to see that everyone toes the line. Age: 45+
- A neighbor of Captain Von Trapp and one of the “Old Guards” of Austria, violently opposed to the takeover of his beloved country by Nazi Germany. Can double with other roles in the ensemble. Age: 45+
- A neighbor of Captain Von Trapp and wife to the Baron Elberfeld. Can double with the nun ensemble. Age: 45+
- An important figure in the Austrian Navy and appears to be much respected by Captain von Trapp. He has obviously agreed to be part of the new regime with Germany. Age: 50+
- Three person performance group who wins 3rd place in the Festival Concert. Can be doubled with other ensemble parts. Ages: 17+
- Female performer who wins 2nd place in the Festival Concert. Can be double with nun ensemble. Age: 17+
- Strong male actors are needed to perform the onstage roles for the Nazi soldiers. Strong male and female actors and singers are needed for neighbors and friends who come to Captain Von Trapp’s party. Also, strong female actors and singers are needed to compose the nuns, novices, and postulants who live in the Nonnberg Abby.
