Main Cast and Characters
Traditional musical has a main cast, which perform regularly, but will occasionally allow the alternate performers to play the lead roles. This is to allow rest for the performers and for other practical purposes. Regarding the cast, Snow.Wolf.Lake was more rigid. The cast of the canto-pop musical remains unchanged for the majority of the time. There was no alternate performer for the same role. Occasionally, a performer would leave the cast, and another performer takes over, but the replacement will have to remain in that role for all the subsequence performances. Jacky Cheung remains in the role of Wu Long (胡狼) for every performance of the musical's existence.
- Wu, Long or 胡狼 (played by Jacky Cheung)-----Gardener for the Ling family, who falls in love with Ling, Jing-Shu.
- Ling, Jing-Shu or 宁静雪 (played by Sandy Lam in the first showings, then Nadia Chan in the Singapore showings)-----Second daughter of the Ling family, who falls in love with Wu.
- Ling, Yuk-Fung or 宁玉凤 (played by Kit Chan)-----Eldest daughter of the Ling family, who also falls in love with Wu.
- Leung, Jik or 梁直 (played by Michael Tse) -----A wealthy bachelor who loves Ling Jing-Shu. His arranged marriage with Ling Jing-Shu by Ling's parents is but a mean to bring the Ling's family out of financial trouble.
