|Actor||Character in play||Role|
|David Denninger||Doctor Thomas Stockmann||A practicing medical doctor, the medical officer for Kirsten Springs, and the brother of the mayor. He is in the prime of his life; idealistic and enthusiastic to the point of disillusion. Thomas lived much of his life impoverished in the countryside; but is now relatively prosperous and living in a bustling town.|
|Kathy Kohlstedt||Catherine Stockmann||Dr. Stockmann's wife, and daughter of Morten Kiil. Catherine is loyal to her husband but practical. She often encourages her husband to think of his family when he is being hasty or irrational.|
|George M.Calger||Peter Stockmann||Mayor of the town and Dr. Stockmann's brother. He is also chairman of the baths committee for Kirsten Springs. Peter is a bachelor, nearing sixty years old in this story. He is a cautious and sometimes ruthless politician.|
|Paul Ratté||Hovstad||Editor of the People's Daily Messenger, the town's leftist newspaper. He is in his early thirties in this story, and has a peasantry background. Slightly corrupt and conflicted, Hovstad is at heart a political radical that just wants to belong.|
|Frank Blomgren||Aslaksen||Printer for the People's Daily Messenger. A lover of moderation, and representative of the Temperance Society.|
|Aaron Wlaschin||Billing||Junior editor of the People’s Daily Messenger. Billings is a radical, like Hovstad, but he is also ambitious and plans to run for office.|
|James Currell||Captain Horster||A ship captain who has little concern for local politics. Horster is a quiet and courageous friend of the Stockmann family.|
|Richard Daly||Morten Kiil||Father of Catherine Stockmann. A wealthy, but slovenly old man. Kiil owns several of the tanneries that Dr. Stockmann implicates in his water pollution report.|
|Kira Pontiff||Petra Stockmann||Daughter of Thomas and Catherine Stockmann. Petra is idealistic like her father. She is a hard-working teacher, but is frustrated that the law requires her to teach things she doesn't believe in.|
|Palmer Sola||Ejlif Stockmann||Son of Thomas and Catherine Stockmann.|
|Samuel Mork||Morten Stockmann||Son of Thomas and Catherine Stockmann.|
|Tom Kelly||The Drunk|
