Character Descriptions

 

Cinderella (female) She is a strong-willed girl with enormous faith. Cinderella believes that, in time, good things happen to good people, and deep down she knows her day will come. She does not resent her Stepfamily - she is aware of their social and emotional limitations. This role requires an actress who can convey Cinderella's conviction and her inner beauty.

 

Anastasia (female) Cinderella’s stepsister. She is spoiled rotten and not very bright. She's used to getting her way and throws a fit whenever she hears the word "no."

 

 Drizella - (female) Cinderella’s stepsister and a bully of the two. Although both Stepsisters hate Cinderella equally, Drizella is more likely to be the one that starts a fight with her.

 

Stepmother (female) - The mother to Anastasia and Drizella and the stepmother to Cinderella. She is cold, cruel, and calculating. She is unhappy with her place in life and is determined to use her daughters to get where she wants to be: the Palace. She is threatened by Cinderella's kindness and the effect it has on people.

 

Perla (female) – is the most mature of the mice and is always ready to straighten out a mess. She has a maternal instinct about her. She is often near Gus, helping him on his way.

 

Jaq (male or female) - is Luke's partner in crime. A happy, playful mouse, he is always eager to help.

 

Luke (male or female) - is Jaq's partner in crime. Even though he is just as playful as Jaq, he is more level-headed. He is fiercely loyal to Cinderella. Luke gets the most upset when the Stepfamily is mean to Cinderella.

 

Gus (male or female) - is the most innocent of the mice and Cinderella's biggest fan. Often simple, shy and fearful, Gus responds immediately when Cinderella calls to him.

 

 

Fairy Godmother (female) The Fairy Godmother is the quintessential female mentor. She is kind, gentle and loving, yet strong and extremely capable. Her goal is to help Cinderella succeed by teaching her how much power she has within herself.

 

Narrator(s) (male or female) Storyteller(s) of the plot.


King (male) The King is a parent who just wants his child to be happy. The King throws the royal ball so his son, the Prince, can meet a potential mate. Once the Prince meets and then loses Cinderella, the King does everything in his power to help his son find her again.

 

Prince (male) The Prince is a young man who is not happy with his duty to find a bride. At the royal ball, he is bored and petulant. The Prince's world changes when he finally meets Cinderella.

 

Grand Duke (male) The Grand Duke is clearly the brains behind the royal family. He knows how much he is needed by the royal family and thinks very highly of himself.
