And yet, through it all, Cinderella never stopped hoping that someday her dreams of happiness would come true.

Stepmother:
Girls, it’s not nice to make fun of your sister. It’s not her fault she’s so... unfortunate. Of course you can go, my dear. If you get all of your work done! Now girls, chop-chop, we must go get some new shoes!

Cinderella:
Now, now, fellas, it’s all right. I’m not going to think about dirty socks. I’m going to think about the ball. All the ladies in their fancy dresses, and all the men with their handsome coats and mustaches, and—

With a wicked stepmother and two jealous stepsisters who keep her enslaved and in rags, Cinderella stands no chance of attending the royal ball. When her fairy godmother appears and magically transforms her reality into a dream come true, Cinderella enchants the handsome Prince at the ball, but must face the wrath of her enraged stepmother and sisters when the spell wears off at midnight.


Character Breakdown

Cinderella
Cinderella is a young girl who lives with her evil stepmother and stepsisters. She is intelligent, caring, and beautiful. Though abused by her stepfamily, she has unwavering faith, resourcefulness, and imagination. She is a resilient woman who chooses kindness and optimism even when it’s hard and uses her creativity and strength to rescue herself through her belief in magic.

Fairy Godmother
The Fairy Godmother is a physical, magical embodiment of Cinderella’s hope and belief. She is quirky and funny, but also comforting and gentle with Cinderella. She radiates magic and makes dreams come true for those with pure hearts.

Stepmother
Cinderella’s Stepmother is cold-hearted, cunning, and cruel. She is jealous of Cinderella, who has more poise and beauty than her two daughters, Anastasia and Drizella. Because of her jealousy, she treats Cinderella like a slave and does not care for her. She wishes to move up in the social class by having a daughter marry the Prince or another esteemed bachelor.

Anastasia
Anastasia is the younger of Stepmother’s two daughters and Cinderella’s stepsister. Both girls are awkward, mean, spoiled, and irritating (also easily irritated). While the two girls share similar attributes and circumstances, Anastasia is the youngest in her home. She enjoys annoying her sister and making fun of Cinderella. She loves all princes, and Prince Charming the most.

Drizella
Drizella is the older of Stepmother’s two daughters and Cinderella’s stepsister. Both girls are awkward, mean, spoiled, and irritating. While the two girls share similar attributes and circumstances, Drizella is more easily irritated than her sister. In fact, her sister starts most of their squabbles, and Drizella finishes them. Drizella, like her family, enjoys being mean to Cinderella and is in love with the Prince.

Grand Duke
The Grand Duke is the King’s right hand man, and he takes his job very seriously. While he can be annoyed by the King, he loves his job and takes it very seriously. He carries himself with importance, uses logic and reason, and gets stressed under pressure.

Herald
The Herald is the personal attendant to the Grand Duke. Like an apprentice, the Herald admires the Grand Duke and wants to be like him. He or she stays by his side at all times. He or she is comedic, animated, and cheerful.

Prince Charming
Prince Charming is a dashing, handsome, and, you guessed it, charming young prince. Although his father throws him his own ball, he is not very excited about it until he meets Cinderella. He falls in love with her that night, and after she runs away, he is determined to find her.

King
The King is another comedic relief of the show. What he lacks in logic, he makes up for in love for his son. He throws the Prince a ball in hopes that he will fall in love and find happiness. He is a helpless romantic and an optimist.

Jaq
Jaq is the unspoken leader of Cinderella’s four mice friends. He’s quick-witted and fearless. All of the mice love Cinderella and do everything in their power to help her.

Gus
Gus is Jaq’s best friend, and relies on him most of the time since he takes a bit longer to process things. He’s innocent and shy. All of the mice love Cinderella and do everything in their power to help her.

Luke
Luke is a playful mouse who doesn’t like Cinderella’s stepfamily. All of the mice love Cinderella and do everything in their power to help her.

Perla
Perla is the most mature of the mice. She’s caring and kind and looks up to Cinderella. All of the mice love Cinderella and do everything in their power to help her.

Narrators
There are four Narrators in the tale of Cinderella. All of them connect with the audience in an impactful way: they tell the story directly to them! They are each passionate storytellers with varying personalities. Overdramatic, kind, informative, the narrators can interact with fully developed characters. Use your imagination to create a personality!

Town Criers
The Town Criers are the royal messengers of the kingdom. They share the announcement of the ball with Cinderella and her family and help announce the Prince at the ball. They are excited and animated, and have room for creativity!

Ensemble
The ensemble consists of the villagers, residents in Prince Charming’s kingdom. Many different personalities are shown on the stage as the show goes on.
