Eliza/Ebenezer Scrooge (age 14-18) is a grouchy, cold, and impatient spinster/lifelong bachelor whose whole life is decidedly consumed with being cheap and hoarding wealth. She/he has heartbreak in her/his past that has caused this blackened view of the world and hatred of Christmas.
Jessica/Jacob Marley (age 12-18) was always a jolly family lady/man and constantly tried to help Scrooge come out of her dark shell. Though she/he spends most of the show as a ghost, her/his impact on the story helps Scrooge realize the goodness that was always inside her/him.
Sarah Marley (ages 12-18) is Jessica/Jacob’s older sister and always thought her/him wrong for wasting time on an unchangeable woman/man like Scrooge. She is saddened by her sister/brother’s death and disappointed by Scrooge’s constant angry ways.

The Ghost of Christmas Past (ages 12-16) is cryptic but humorous in her attempt to show Scrooge what she/he used to be in her best days.
The Ghost of Christmas Present (ages 10-15) is grand and dramatic and perfectly happy to show Scrooge something she/he didn’t know she/he had.
