Man of La Mancha:
Miguel de Cervantes/Alonso Quijana/ Don Quixote: Plays both a tax collector and a knight. Charismatic, energetic, sympathetic, full of unshakeable faith in the inherent goodness of humankind. Must be able to transform from the author Cervantes into the character Don Quixote. Tall and thin, a man of gentle courtliness leavened by humor. He is in his late forties but his dominant qualities are childlike – ingenuousness, a grave and endless curiosity about human behavior, candor which is very nearly self-destructive. He has, too, the child’s delight in play-acting.
Cervantes’ manservant/Sancho Panza: A comic role; Cervantes' manservant and "stage manager"; a pragmatic, loyal servant and sidekick; old as or older than his master, short, rotund, and suspicious; an illiterate and shrewd peasant primarily interested in eating and drinking.
Aldonza (also plays Dulcinea): the serving wench at a roadside inn, whom Quixote names Dulcinea
Dulcinea (played by Aldonza):
Her life is transformed by Don Quixote’s belief in her; wild and lusty; must be prepared for vocal and physical demands of the role; will be "man handled" and must have dance ability. A savage alley cat, veteran if not always victor of many backfence tussles.
The Governor: the leader of the prison inmates.
The Innkeeper (played by The Governor): A strong but kind and sympathetic man.
Maria: The innkeeper's shrewish wife.
Antonia: Alonso Quijana’s niece; worried about the effect of her uncle's madness on her upcoming marriage to Dr. Carrasco.
Dr. Carrasco: The prosecutor of Cervantes' case; Antonia's fiancé; a man of breeding, intelligence and logic; disguises himself as the Knight of the Mirrors.
The Padre: A man whose own convictions are challenged by meeting Don Quixote; wise and kind; sets wheels in motion to turn Alonso from his madness and persuade him to return home.
The Housekeeper: Alonso Quijana's strong housekeeper who is full of hope for her master.
Pedro, the head muleteer: A rough, sturdy muleteer.
The Barber: Traveling barber/doctor whose shaving basin/hat is believed, by Quixote, to be the Golden Helmet of Mambrino. A comic role.
Captain of the Inquisition: An imposing, cruel man.
Fermina: A servant girl.
Moorish Dancer: Gypsy girl who dances lasciviously and accompanies herself with a nasal whine; Don Quixote finds her charming; Sancho believes her to be a trollop.
