Welcome back, fans of Sunnyville Stories. I have some more pencils to share with all of you this week. Picking up from where we left off last time with Sunnyville Stories episode 6, it was none other than Ragnar Eftirmatur who was picked for the role of the prince. So who will play Cinderella?
The girls of the Sunnyville Junior Theater Club are all lined up there. From left to right, we have Rei Tanuki, Rose Von Straussen, Samantha Macgregor, Margaret Macgregor, and Magnolia Talbot. They seem to wonder which one of them will play Cinderella.
My, Rose seems quite confident about her chances, doesn’t she?
The part with Rose winking and saying her line was directly lifted from a similar scene in the Maple Town episode “A Most Unlikely Heroine” which was partly the inspiration for this story. The other source of inspiration was my own experience in the casting of “Alice in Wonderland”, which I did in my high school theater class. There was a lot of anxiety over who would be chosen for what role.
So the role of Cinderella will be none other than…
…come on…all of you saw this coming. Sam Macgregor was a natural in my mind to play the female lead in Cinderella.
The other roles took some time to decide. I had originally debated having Rusty as the Grand Duke and Olaf as the king. As you can see here, the two of them were switched in the final version. I wonder if I made the right decision.
I thought that Margaret and Magnolia would make a good pair as the wicked stepsisters. After all, these two girls are best friends.
Those of you may have noticed that the role of the wicked stepmother hasn’t been announced on this page. But that will be in the next blog post.
