6 roles

CINDERELLA/A.K.A “ELLA C”Female18-25 y.o.African-American Latino / Hispanic Other Asian Middle Eastern Native American Pacific Islander Indian/South Asian

(Age 18+ to play high schooler, woman of color). A passionate, young woman whose mother passed away many years ago. Her father was a genius quantum computer scientist who remarried Lady Zurka before he, too, passed. Strong Contemporary Pop/Rapper/Hip Hopper.

RUNKABoth genders18-25 y.o.All ethnicities

(Age 18+ to play high schooler). Constructed from video game computer parts, Runka is a robot made by Cinderella with her father. They are her sassy, human-like, hunk-a-junk companion and protector, and they have a real fondness for narrating Cinderella’s life over their livestreaming Instahologram feed. Runka is out of date and in need of a serious upgrade, but they still have a few tricks up their mechanical sleeve. Contemporary Pop/R&B.

LADY ZURKAFemale30-39 y.o.All ethnicities

DOUBLES AS HIP HOP BALL CONTESTANTS WINGNUT, AL LOY, AND BAFFLER. Cinderella ’s stepmother. She enjoys being mean and bossy to Cinderella and treats Runka the Robot Rapper especially cruelly. Perhaps there is a path to redemption after all. She is a combination of Ursula (Little Mermaid), Mama Rose, (Gypsy) and Faye Dunaway in “Mommy Dearest...” Versatile, funny, with a big personality. Strong Singer/Rapper.

ZIGFemale18-25 y.o.All ethnicities

(Age 18+ to play high schooler). Lady Zurka’s vain and somewhat vapid daughter, giving off distinct valley girl vibes. Her loftiest dream is to be an Instahologram “influencer.” Contemporary Pop/R&B.

ZAGFemale18-25 y.o.All ethnicities

(Age 18+ to play high schooler). Lady Zurka’s stuck up and selfish daughter, who fancies reading books cover to cover (though not any of the pages in between), and who inexplicably started speaking with a British accent at the age of five when she overheard it on the Great Galactic Bakeoff Show her mom used to watch at night. Contemporary Pop/R&B.

PRINCEMale18-56 y.o.All ethnicities

(18+). Heir to the throne of the Galactic Empire, he is an ineffectual but charming prince who is good at little except cultivating Instahologram followers, throwing extravagant parties, and disappointing his mother. He lives in the Hip Hop Palace on the capital planet Zolla. Strong Singer/Rapper/Hip Hopper.
