  2. Buttons - Cinderella's lovable and friendly friend. Serves as the comedic heart of the story, engaging with the audience. Quick-witted with a good sense of humour to bring joy to the performance. Expressive and energetic, connecting with both children and adults. Strong improvisational skills and audience interaction are key. Comfortable with physical comedy and various slapstick elements.

  4. Dandini - Loyal and charismatic aide to Prince Charming. Possesses wit, charm, and a quick sense of humour. Quick changes between formal and comical scenes.
