Not sure who the characters are?
(Here's a quick cheat sheet!)

The Fairies
*Oberon -  The King of the fairies. Oberon is initially at odds with his wife, Titania, because she refuses to relinquish control of a young Indian prince whom he wants for one of his Knights. Oberon plots revenge against Titania and send Puck to obtain a love-potion flower to use against her. Eventually Oberon makes up with Titania. (*this part is reserved for King Danial)
*Titania - The beautiful Queen of the fairies. Titania resists the attempts of Oberon to make a knight of the young Indian prince she was given. Puck transforms Nick Bottom into a man with the head of an ass (donkey), then uses the love-potion flower to make Titania fall in love with him. Eventually Puck releases her from the spell and she makes up with Oberon. (*This part is reserved for Queen Ennelynne)
Puck - AKA Robin Goodfellow. Puck is Oberon's jester and saboteur. Puck delights in playing pranks on mortals and other fairies. Puck is responsible for everything that goes wrong in the play, and also for helping to set it all right again.
Peaseblossom, Cobweb, Mote, & Mustardseed - Faries in Titania's court who she orders to attend to Bottom after she falls in love with him.

The Members of the Ducal Court of Athens
Demetrius - A young man of Athens, initially in love with Hermia, but ultimately falls in love with Helena.
Egeus - Hermia's father. Egeus has given Demetrius permission to marry Hermia, but Hermia is in love with Lysander and refuses to marry Demetrius. Egeus insists that Hermia either abide by his wishes, or face the consequences of Athenian Law. He brings this complaint against his daughter to Theseus for judgment.
Helena - A young woman of Athens, in love with Demetrius. Demetrius and Helena were engaged until Demetrius met Helena's friend Hermia and abandoned Helena. Helena thinks she is unattractive and that both Lysander and Demetrius are making fun of her when they profess their love for her.
Hermia - A young woman of Athens, daughter of Egeus. Hermia is in love with Lysander and is best friends with Helena. Helena is very self conscious about being short and, when both Lysander and Demetrius wake up in love with Helena, accuses her friend of wooing them with her height.
Hyppolyta - The legendary Queen of the Amazons, engaged to Theseus. Everyone is preparing for their wedding festivities.
Lysander - A young man of Athens, who is in love with Hermia. Hermia's father wants her to marry Demetrius, so Lysander and Hermia run away into the forest where Puck uses the love-potion flower on Lysander who wakes up in love with Helena.
Philostrate - Theseus' long-suffering master of ceremonies, who is responsible for organizing the entertainments for the Duke's wedding.
Theseus - The heroic Duke of Athens, who is engaged to Hoppolyta.

The Craftsmen Putting on a Play within the Play
Francis Flute - The bellows-mender chosen by the Craftsmen to play the female role of Thisbe in the Craftsmen's play for Theseus' wedding festivities. Forced to play a young girl, the bearded craftsman insists on saying all of his lines in a high, squeaky voice.
Nick Bottom - An overconfident weaver chosen to play the role of Pyramus in the craftsmen's play for Theseus' wedding celebration. Bottom misuses language and hands out bad advice. He is unaware that Puck has transformed his head into that of an ass as punishment for his arrogance.
Peter Quince - A carpenter and the nominal leader of the craftsmen who are attempting to put on a play for Theseus' wedding festivities.
Robin Starveling - The tailor who was chosen to play Thisbe's mother in the Craftsmen's play.  He ends up playing the part of "Moonshine" in the Craftsmen's play.
Tom Snout - The tinker chose to play Thisbe's father in the Craftsmen's play, who ends up playing the role of "Wall", who divides the two lovers in the play within a play.
Snug - the Joiner who plays the Lion in the Craftsmen's play.  Snug worries that his fierce roaring will frighten all of the ladies in the audience.
