Lizzie - 20’s/30’s - High belt: F#3-F#5 (belt to A5 if possible.) - The younger daughter of the Borden household, accused of her father and stepmother's axe murders; damaged and twisted, can turn on a dime from fragile, broken, meek and obedient to conniving, sinister, furious, and terrifying.
Alice - to play 20’s/30’s - High mezzo lyric/mix/belt: G3 (w/F#3 pick-up/ghost-notes in one number) – A5 (legit soprano) - Lizzie's next door neighbor who visits frequently; seductive and secretive, with an almost maternal tenderness in her affections for Lizzie.
Emma - to play 20’s/30’s - Alto/mezzo belt: F#3-D5 - Lizzie's older sister; resentful of her father's marriage to his second wife and his financial support of her family; protective, outspoken, and commanding; furious, but also desperately sad.
Bridget - to play 20’s/30’s - Contralto/low alto: F3 (w/E3 pick-up/ghost-notes in one number) – Eb5 (E5 option in one ad lib) - The Borden family maid of several years and occasional show narrator; Irish; speaks and sings in dialect; clever with a dry and dark sense of humor; a rock and roll nihilist; not much gets past her.
