Character Breakdown

*ages are subject to vary

Ella: Woman, 20s, any ethnicity. Though no one notices her beneath her rags and quiet demeanor, she is opinionated, charismatic, passionate, beautiful and funny. Idealistic and hopeful, she courageously challenges the prince to change the policies in his kingdom – and helps him discover who he truly is. Always her late father’s daughter, she is determined to see the good in everyone despite her hardships and suffering. We see her blossom into a confident woman. Must have strong dance and partnering skills and great comedic timing. Beautiful and expressive traditional musical theatre soprano to E flat.

Prince Topher: Man, 20s – early 30s, any ethnicity. A misguided and lost prince who longs to do something important with his life. Though brave and heroic, he feels lonely and unfulfilled. Attractive and charming but not a stereotypical ladies man, he is thoughtful, appealing and innocent – with an unforced goofy streak. Moral, genuine and kindhearted, he is at a crossroads and must take control of his kingdom and his future. Must have strong dance and partnering skills and great comedic timing. Soaring, rich musical theatre baritone to G.

Madame: Woman, late 40s – 60s, any ethnicity. Ella’s selfish stepmother. The epitome of vanity and fashion. A ravenous social climber who values wealth, status and material possessions above all else. Unapologetically dismissive and sometimes cruel, Madame schemes her way up the social ladder. Must have incredible comic timing. Traditional musical theatre character voice. Mezzo-Soprano 

Sebastian: Man, 40s-60s, any ethnicity. The kingdom’s Lord Chancellor. Though he is Topher’s trusted advisor, he is devious and selfish. Using propaganda and dishonesty, he keeps Topher isolated and in the dark about his kingdom. Sebastian rules without regard for the lower class, or anyone other than himself – and truly believes he deserves to rule the kingdom. Must have incredible comic timing. Traditional musical theatre character voice. Baritone.

Marie: Woman, 40s-60s, any ethnicity. A friend to Ella, and the town’s resident crazy lady and beggar-woman. Actually a fairy godmother in disguise. Wise, warm, otherworldly and charming. Marie rewards Ella for her kindness by making her dreams a possibility. Glorious and expressive traditional musical theatre soprano to G.

Gabrielle: Woman, 20s-30s, any ethnicity. Ella’s stepsister and daughter of Madame. Encouraged by her mother and sister to value material wealth and social status, she unenthusiastically joins them in their abrasive behavior. Quietly passionate, empathetic and witty, she is drawn to Ella and Jean-Michel. Ironically aware that she doesn’t fit in. Must have great comic timing. Strong and expressive traditional musical theatre voice soprano to G.

Charlotte: Woman, 30s, any ethnicity. Ella’s stepsister and daughter of Madame. Brash, self-centered, materialistic, snooty, loud, sassy and bratty, she has a ridiculously high – but unfounded – opinion of herself. She never passes up an opportunity to be the center of attention. Must have great comic timing. Strong and expressive traditional musical theatre character belt to F.

Jean-Michel: Man, 20s-30s, any ethnicity. A feisty, passionate peasant determined to make a change for the starving class. Impetuous. A firebrand, but lacks authority and isn’t taken seriously as a revolutionary. Has a crush on Gabrielle, though their courtship is forbidden because they are from different social classes. Interested in all physical types – he could be scrawny, short, tall, etc. Must have great comic timing. Traditional musical theatre voice. Must understand musical phrasing and have an attractive, compelling sound. Baritone. 

Lord Pinkleton: Man, mid 30s-50s, any ethnicity. The Lord Chancellor’s right-hand man. Announces royal balls, banquets and even the weather to the villagers. Must have great comic timing. Traditional musical theatre tenor with power. Tenor to A4. 

Ensemble Dance Members: Knights, Peasants, Serfs, Townspeople, Ladies and Gentlemen of the Court, Giant, Griffin, Servants, etc.

All auditioning must be 14 and up.
