Cast of Charachters:
ANNIE: Jack's younger sister and, in many ways, his opposite in terms of personality. She is a risk-taker who often follows her heart instead of her head.

BLACK KNIGHT: A mysterious figure who sends Jack and Annie on their quest. In the Duke's kingdom, the Black Knight is something of a legend and a celebrity.Range: Bb3-Ab4

HARRY: The Duke's brother and although he has been in the dungeon for forty-seven years, he has retained his quiet dignity and nobility.Range: F3-G4
JACK: He is bookish, careful and thoughtful, but he is NOT a nerd! Jack has tremendous curiosity about the world around him and loves to take notes about his observations.
