The Heroine of our story: the King’s only daughter and as far as anyone knows, the only eligible young lady in the kingdom; a smart, sassy and headstrong young lady.
The teenage daughter of Myrtle the Witch; starts out seemingly a villain but becomes one of Larissa’s closest allies. A sarcastic, comically downbeat young lady.
The panto dame: the castle cook, cleaner and general busybody who by chance was spared from Myrtles original curse. Hilarious with a bawdy sense of humour; the mother of Felix.
A young lower born lad who is in love with Larissa (and she with him) though neither of them realise it. Felix is very clever and brave to a fault when it comes to defending Larissa’s honour.
The villain, a real scenery-chewing, crowd-baiting panto witch whose dastardly schemes put even her own daughter at risk.
Seems like he’s going to be the hero, Prince Appleby is dashing, chivalrous and well mannered, though also a massive coward when it comes to fighting.
Oliver comes to pursue Larissa’s hand in marriage but soon joins forces
with Myrtle after everyone realises he is a cruel, obnoxious, selfish bad
The king of Wherisia; lazy, a bit dim and generally oblivious to what’s
happening around him.
The chief of Palace security, who seems dogged and thorough in his work,
but who is secretly under the spell of Myrtle for most of the story; though
he redeems himself at the end.
OTHER SPEAKING ROLES
Captain Crumb’s faithful second-in-command
Chorus member who tends to yell out jokes.
An Irish Prince
A Scottish Prince
A Prince whose parents really wanted a girl.
“Dear Diary. Hi, it’s me, Larissa. Larissa, the Princess? Tomorrow’s
my birthday, and despite all of my protests and everything I’ve
asked father specifically not to do, the entire Castle is being turned
into some sort of powder pink Barbie dream-house for the occasion.
Nightmare. All I want is to turn sixteen years old with a little dignity
and a lot of cake, but father has insisted on throwing me this OTT
party. It seems a lot to me like all that’s expected of me is to show
up, smile, look pretty and happy and laugh at peoples jokes then
marry the richest Prince. Is that really what girls my age are
supposed to do? I don’t know, because I’ve never met any girls my
age. Or any age, for that matter. Hmmm. I guess I just answered
My own question. Don’t you hate it when people do that? I do. Sigh.
Yes. I did just write “sigh”.”
In the far off land of “Whereisia” a witches curse had left the land
almost entirely without ladies; to anyone’s knowledge, the only eligible
lady in the kingdom is the Kings daughter, Larissa. On the eve of Larissa’s less than surprising 16th birthday party the King has arranged for suitors from all across the kingdom to come and woo her, but all she wants is to be left alone. Meanwhile, the witch Myrtle is planning a surprise of her own; announcing her own daughter, Aubrey, to the world in order to marry a Prince and rule the kingdom in her stead. But Aubrey has other plans; and when things go pear-shaped in a kingdom run by men, what’s a girl to do?
