List of Lead Roles
Melchior Gabor: Headstrong, handsome, and charismatic. He knows much more than the others because of what he reads in books and is able to see the corruption in society.
Wendla Bergmann: A naive young girl who has limited knowledge about --pretty much-- everything.
Moritz Stiefel: Melchior's intense and nervous best friend. He has an overwhelming confusion relating to feelings, which seems comedic at first, but quickly develops into a serious issue for him.
Ilse Neumann: A childhood friend who runs away from an abusive home to live in an artists' colony.
Hänschen Rilow: A humorous and almost arrogant classmate, who manipulates the other students.
Martha Bessell: One of Wendla's friends who is abused, and keeps the worst of it to herself.
Ernst Röbel: A sweet and naive classmate. Ernst is in many ways a foil to Hänschen.
Georg Zirschnitz: Another classmate who dreams about his piano teacher.
Otto Lämmermeier: Another classmate who has a dream about his mother.
Thea: A confrontational school girl and Wendla's best friend.
Anna: An innocent school girl and Martha's best friend.
