CHARACTERS:

The Do-It-Yourself Fairy Sparkly, and pretty, with a mini glue gun on her belt, a bandoleer of glue stick refills and lots of tools. What makes her happy is making wishes come true. Good singing voice.
Dr F (Frankenstein) Looks like a mad scientist, ‘cause that’s what he is. What makes him happy is making things in his lab. And Dame Dumpling!
Dame Dumpling Looks like an Octoberfest waitress recently retired from Rugby.  What makes her happy is making plans to marry Dr F. (the Dame is “traditionally” played by a man)
Igor, the Eternal Intern Wears a robe. What would make him happy is job security.
The Creature Cute but weird-looking lime green “Dog”. Has collar with lightning bolts.  Makeup only on nose. What would make him happy is to make friends, and food, lots of food.
Strange Lestrange Top hatted professional evil villain with moustache and long coat with coat tails. What makes him happy is making trouble.
Smash Amateur level villain, unappreciated henchman of Lestrange. What makes him/her happy is making messes.
Bash Goofy, also unappreciated henchperson of Lestrange. What makes him/her happy is making messes.
Sherlock Holmes/ Villager Dressed as Sherlock Holmes, deerstalker, coat, pipe What makes him happy is solving mysteries. So then why did he stop? English accent a plus.
Dr. Watson Dressed as Dr Watson. What makes him happy is making things work, fixing things. But now he is making a connection… English accent a plus, and sideburns!
Vampire Announcer/ Santa An ability to do impersonations valuable. Wears different bits of costumes as appropriate.
Two Mice / Villagers young folks being super cute. No mice ears when they are playing villagers. Ability to do basic dances steps helpful.
