- Olivier: A university student attending a clown festival. Olivier is somewhat shy at first but they are also very eager to help his friends. Olivier meets and befriends Gazpacho at the festival, and tries to make Gazpacho overcome stage fright. Olivier is also very eager to get his homework done, and that determination sometimes causes them to miss cues.
- Gazpacho (all genders, all ages): for actors with clown experience! Gazpacho is a novice clown who really wants to perform for their first time, despite being quite sensitive and feeling very anxious about crowds of people. Gazpacho speaks in gestures and in their own clown-language, with some English words thrown in occasionally.
