The narrator is the storyteller who speaks directly to the audience.

Find a charismatic girl or boy with great diction for this large speaking role with minimal singing.
Jack is an energetic young man who is always looking for an adventure. He begins this show as a simple little boy (his best friend is a cow), but by the end of the show he learns a few valuable lessons. Seeking an excellent singer and actor who can show great range in this demanding role.
Raising a son and running a farm all by herself has made Jack's Mother a bit frazzled and most definitely overworked. Jack s Mother is a great role for a character actress with solid comic timing and good singing skills.
The Baker is a good-hearted, likeable person who believes he can take on the Witch s curse all by himself. At first, this confidence and his desire to have a child drives him, but he soon learns he needs his wife's help to accomplish the goal. Seeking an excellent actor and singer who is both personable and capable or portraying the Baker's strength of conviction.
The Baker's Wife is a strong, determined and loving woman whose desire to have a child drives the action of the whole show. Her storyline helps tie all the characters storylines together. Cast one of your strongest female performers in this role as it requires both excellent singing and acting as well as a good sense of comedic timing.

The Witch is an ancient, mysterious and manipulative woman who will do anything possible to regain her beauty and protect Rapunzel.

This role is perfect for a good character actress and singer who can physically and vocally portray the complexities of the role.
FLORINDA and LUCINDA
Cinderella's Stepsisters are spoiled brats who care only about themselves and marrying Cinderella's Prince. Cast two actresses who work well together and are able to portray their cattiness in a bold and comical way.
Just like the name suggests, this is one mysterious man. Everything he does is to help the Baker, but he does not explain his motives until the last moment. Seeking an engaging character actor who can speak the Mysterious Man's often puzzling lines clearly for this non-singing role.
The Wolf is a sly and dangerous character intently focused on attacking Little Red Ridinghood. Seeking an actor and singer who can physically and vocally bring the Wolf to life.

Milky-White is Jack's cow. Seeking a focused performer with an expressive face and exceptional physicality
Cinderella's Father will not win any Father-of-the-Year awards. He doesn't care about his daughter's well-being or her actions. This non-singing role is perfect for a new performer just learning to be comfortable onstage.
Cinderella's Prince is a conceited man who adamantly pursues Cinderella and can't take no for an answer. When not chasing her, he is trying to show up Rapunzel's Prince. This role requires a good singer and actor who can portray arrogance while still being likeable.
Cinderella' s Mother comforts Cinderella in her one short song. Seeking a singer with a strong, pleasant voice for this role. Cinderella's Mother has no spoken dialogue.

Cinderella's Stepmother is a mean, evil woman who only cares about her birth children, daughters Florinda and Lucinda. She has only a few singing lines. Seeking an actress who can portray both the strong distaste the character has for Cinderella as well as the love she showers on her own spoiled daughters.
Cinderella is a simple peasant girl whose one wish is to go to the Festival. Unfortunately, when her wish comes true she learns that wishes sometimes come with consequences. Cinderella's inner beauty always shines through her sometimes clumsy and awkward exterior. Seeking a great singer and actor who is charming while maintaining a sense of humor.
Rapunzel has been stuck in a tower for the majority of her life. Finally, she stands up to the Witch in order to get out to see the world. This role doesn,t have a great deal of dialogue but has challenging music. Seeking an excellent soprano singer.
