Oberon / Theseus (doubled). Male
Titania / Hippolyta (doubled). Female
Oberon and Titania are the ageless and vigorous King and Queen of the Fairies; Theseus and Hippolyta are adult humans, the Duke of Athens and Queen of the Amazons.
Bottom, an Athenian weaver. Female.
Five Mechanicals (artisans) of Athens. Any age, any gender.
Lysander, Demetrius, Hermia, Helena - four young lovers, male and female.
Egeus, Hermia's father and master of the revels for Theseus.
