PRINCESS & THE PEA: Character Breakdown
Note: All ethnicities and gender non-conforming artists are encouraged to audition for all roles.
Chester - the Queen's loyal right hand man and friend to Prince Wellington and comic relief - strong comedy skills. He is torn between his loyalty to Queen Evermean and his loyalty to Prince Wellington David. He is Wellington’s confidante, and the Queen’s servant, who also serves as the gameshow host.
Queen Evermean - Prince Wellington's mother. An overbearing mother and ruler of her kingdom. No one is good enough for her son. Big personality, loves appearances, fashion and royal regalia - but has a heart underneath. She loves her son.
Prince Wellington David -"ole W.D. " - The Queens' son - about to turn 18 and his mother is putting on a contest to find his bride. He is controlled by his mother until he finds his own voice. He loves to write romantic tales. He finds his "voice' in his writing as he is often silenced by his mother, the Queen. He wants to find a bride for love, not passing the Princess test. He longs to leave the castle where finding love becomes a choice.
Papa - A sweet and kind man in his 50's - a widow and father of Ruth. A doting father – very encouraging. He loves Ruth with all his heart, but feels it is her time to leave and make her own life now. This actor also plays Biff - a very over the top TV personality who reports on the Princess Contest. Biff is a newscaster and anchorman, and is a showman about it.
Ruth - A sweet girl who lives with her Papa. Independent, romantic, reads a lot – much like Belle in Beauty and the Beast. She is a princess at heart. She takes care of him since her mother died. She lives for reading her books where she can escape to other worlds and take adventures through the pages. She also loves to sleep and snores loudly! Papa encourages her it is her time to leave him and live her life.
Buffy - A contestant in the Princess contest. She is spunky, loves her hair, her dress, her voice and has her own cheer! She wants to marry Prince Wellington David. She is from a rich family which greatly pleases Queen Evermean. This performer also plays Cumula – a TV Weather girl.
