THE STORY OF CINDERELLA
There are five characters, Narrator (N), Cinderella (C), Prince Charming (P), the Ugly Sister (U), and the Fairy Godmother (F). They need not wear special costumes but it helps if they have some identifiable piece of apparel such as a top hat or bowler hat (N), a bow in the hair (C), a cardboard or part crown (P), a tasteless hat or wig (U) and a short wand (F). The five characters sit on five chairs in a row facing the audience. They have absolutely blank expressions on their faces, even when the audience is laughing. Their lines are delivered slowly and deliberately, without expression or interest. Each one stands to deliver his or her lines and sits immediately afterwards, each one waiting for the previous speaker to sit before standing, and if the audience is laughing waits until the laughter subsides before continuing.
