ROLES ARE OPEN TO ALL TYPES & ETHNICITIES

HERMIANE: Female, 20-30s. Wealthy, aristocratic, haughty, and spirited. A fabulous creation of beauty and money, with a great deal of curiosity and a very deeply hidden compassionate streak. (Note: rehearsal commitment will be very light for this character.)

THE PRINCE: Male, 20-30s. Suave, charismatic, and cruel. Deeply intelligent but without empathy. He considers himself a scientist, philosopher, and wit. He wins every argument he enters. (Note: rehearsal commitment will be very light for this character.)

ADINE: Female, early 20s. Innocent and open, but also smart and temperamental. Frank and practical, and completely without guile, even when it gets her into trouble. Pleasure-seeking. Must be comfortable in romantic and/or sexualized situations with both genders.

EGLE: Female, early 20s. Innocent and open, but also smart and temperamental. Very curious and alive to the wonders of the world, in particular those that involve her own beauty. Pleasure-seeking. Must be comfortable in romantic and/or sexualized situations with both genders.

MESRIN: Male, early 20s. Innocent and open, but also smart and temperamental. Hot tempered, romantic and stubborn. He is bewildered by the world around him and the actions of those in it. Pleasure-seeking. Must be comfortable in romantic and/or sexualized situations with both genders.

AZOR: Male, early 20s. Innocent and open, but also smart and temperamental. Totally loyal and extremely open hearted, he is alive to love and pleasure in any form and from whatever source. He sees the best in everything. Pleasure-seeking. Must be comfortable in romantic and/or sexualized situations with both genders.

MESROU: Male, any age. Servant to the prince, at once a caretaker and jailer. Carise and Mesrou are implicit in the cruelty of the children's captivity, but are also their only confidants. Capable of both deep love and great betrayal. The perfect servant.

DINA: Female, 20s. Kind, pure, innocent, deeply in love, extremely independent.
