The Narrators are key to the success of Cinderella KIDS. Through these storytellers, the show's plot and the actions and reactions of the characters are expressed. Cast actors that are mature enough to stand for long periods of time. Clear, loud voices with good diction are a must.
The Stepsisters should be cast with two of your stronger actresses with excellent comedic timing and physical comedy skills. Anastasia works well when played as spoiled rotten and not very bright. Drizella works well as the 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 is 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.
Cinderella is the heroine of the show. 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.
Perla is the most mature of the mice and is always ready to straighten out a mess. She is the only female role of the four main mice, so there can be a maternal instinct about her.
Jaq (pronounced Jacques) is Luke's partner in crime. A happy, playful mouse, he is always eager to help. Jaq has the most solo lines of all the mice, so make sure you cast a strong singer.
Luke 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.
Gus 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.
Casting extra Mice is a wonderful way to use additional children. The Mice are used in several numbers and can double as Villagers in the opening.
The Town Criers can be cast as one person or more than four depending on cast size. The are pivotal in all "royal announcements".
The King is a parent who just wants his child to be happy. The King throws the royal ball so his own son, the Prince, can meet a potential mate. This role requires an actor who can portray the stature of a king and the caring of a father.
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.
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.
The Herald is a wonderful sidekick to the Grand Duke and is a good featured role. Because there are several key moments in the show that rely on timing of the Herald (e.g., the shoe fitting), it is recommended to cast a responsible actor in this role.
Ensemble in Cinderella KIDS is used quite often. Strong singers and dancers are needed for several numbers.
