CINDERELLA

Mezzo Soprano – Age 16-24, A very meek and obedient Cinderella, with never a moment’s complaining, but an enormous talent for wishing hard for ‘impossible things to happen’.

STEPMOTHER

Mezzo Soprano – 30s – 50s. Just as we should expect, but with occasional flashes of understanding, until she remembers the main purpose of her life – to marry off her horrible daughters.

JOY

Mezzo Soprano w/belt – 18 – 25, sourpuss with little intelligence.

PORTIA

Mezzo Soprano w/belt – 18 – 25, A goofy girl with a fatuous laugh and no intelligence whatsoever.

GODMOTHER

Mezzo Soprano – 30s – 60s, A most original creation: extremely pragmatic and no-nonsense, she is capable of being swept away by Cinderella’s wishing-power, and is always there at the right moment.

THE KING

Baritone – 40s – 60s, A hard-up grouch who at least has the grace to wish his son as happy in marriage as he is.

THE QUEEN

Mezzo Soprano – 40s – 60s,  Quite serious and domineering, but affectionate to her fuddy-duddy husband.

THE PRINCE

Baritone – 18 – 25, Everybody’s ideal Prince Charming.
