Fairy Godmother

Any age, although obviously a more mature mother figure is particularly appropriate. She does not have to sing, but she should definitely have a good sense of humour. A bit bossy, with a certain matronly briskness about her!

Females, aged 18 to 99 from Northland, New Zealand

  • Minimum Acting experience: No previous acting experience

Dandini

This part can be played by a male or female. An opportunist, mischievous, fun loving and wants to enjoy life. We should feel a strong bond of friendship between him and the Prince. Ideally should have a nice singing voice and regularly finds himself on the wrong of the sisters amorous intentions, needs to have a good sense of comedy.

Prince Charming

This part can be played by a male or female. Handsome and Prince-like, charm and a natural authority are important. The Prince is fond of Dandini, and more reserved than his cheeky valet. Most importantly the Prince and Cinderella carry some of the key elements in the story and it is important that the audience feels their love is real. He should have a pleasant singing voice.

Cinderella

There needs to be a wholesomeness to Cinderella. Sweet, attractive and has a sense of fun especially in scenes with Buttons. Does show spiritedness as at times stand up to the ugly Sisters. Like the Prince she should have a pleasant singing voice.

Females, aged 18 to 30 from Northland, New Zealand

  • Minimum Acting experience: No previous acting experience

Buttons

Must be able to engage with audience and encourage audience participation. Charm energy and attack. Good at comedy, and also be able to portray his sincere love for Cinderella. A great mix of comedy and pathos makes this role special. Good singing voice is always a bonus but not essential.

  • Minimum Acting experience: No previous acting experience

Baron Hardup

An older man. Full of sudden enthusiasms which always come to nothing. Unable to control the Ugly sisters, is weak but has a certain vigour. In a lot of comedy scenes.

Males, aged 18 to 99 from Northland, New Zealand

  • Minimum Acting experience: No previous acting experience

Ugly Sisters

Beryl is the dominant ‘thin’ one and Sheryl is the ‘plump’ one. Expelled school girls, mean and nasty to everyone. Obvious baddies. Very humorous and fast paced dialogue. They carry a lot of the comedy, so is essential they play with a sense of fun.
