Cinderella's Dilemma - Game Script What really happened to Cinderella that special night at the Royal Ball?


Cinderella is a 17 years old girl who lives with her father, her evil stepmother and 2 foolish step sisters – who love taking selfies, surfing online, going out till the late hours of the night and easily caving into peer pressure. The King has decided that the time has come for his son, the 18 year old prince, to find a wife! Therefore, the King is conducting a special ball for his son to be able to find a wife. Cinderella’s father has gone on a business trip to the next town, so he is not able to come to the ball. Cinderella and the Prince already know one another and he has invited her personally to come to the ball! However, Cinderella’s evil stepmother wants one of her daughters to marry the prince. Although she knows clearly that Cinderella is a better match for The Prince, she has forbidden Cinderella from going to the ball!

Nevertheless, Cinderella called her Fairy-Godmother to help her sneak into the ball.

The Fairy-Godmother threw some fairy dust into the air and PUFF here is a dress, a driver and a limousine! But Cinderella must come home at 12 o’clock – the time when the magic wears off.  

She must come home right away and not cave into The Prince’s pleading to stay out late; in addition, she must get a good night’s sleep because tomorrow is the “special cleaning day”, and the Evil stepmother wants Cinderella to clean up the house. 


The limousine driver Driver

I am a goose, who was turned into a human being by magic which has an expiration date, more precisely an expiration time. I am very impatient!

I have to be back home at 12 o’clock, midnight, sharp before I turn back to being a goose! I do not care if Cinderella comes on time or not! I leave at 23:50! And I will start texting her at 23:30 to remind her that I am going at 23:50!!!!!!!! 

Your Task

You have to pressure Cinderella into leaving on time because you do not want to turn back into a goose half way home.  You do not care if she gets engaged to The Prince or not, you want to be home on time.


Scene - 01

The Prince Prince

I am the Prince. I am eighteen years old. I love horseback riding and falling in love with beautiful girls. I always keep my word no matter what happens.

Cinderella is the perfect girl for me! I love her and I want her to be my wife! At midnight, I will announce that she is my bride, and then I will take her for a night walk in the Royal Gardens. They are so beautiful at night! After we walk, talk and kiss a lot, I will call a special Royal Taxi to take her home.

Your Task

I have to make Cinderella understand that she is the only one for me.  I cannot live another day without her. I will keep her safe at all times and at all cost


Scene - 01

The-Fairy-Godmother Licensed Fairy

I am the Fairy-Godmother. I am 568 years old, but thanks to my magic I look 27. I have never been a Godmother to a teenager. They require a great deal of attention! I need to keep Cinderella safe from any harm until she becomes an adult. Therefore, I will help her to go to the ball, but Cinderella must be home on time! She must have a full night sleep. In addition, she does not know The Prince and cannot stay with him all night long.

Your Task

I am very concerned about Cinderella: she gets up early and goes to sleep at late hours – teenagers must get a good night sleep to be able to grow and develop! Her mother is not here to keep her safe, and her stepmother only cares about money and her biological daughters.

No one can keep her safe besides me. I do not believe that The Prince is truly in love with her and does not want to take advantage of her. I also know that he was engaged once, but it was his father’s arrangement to secure political power.


Scene - 01

Minderella Best friend forever YOLO

I am Cinderella’s best friend! We have been friends since I remember myself! We take each other’s advice and love to spend time together. I am engaged to the prince of the next kingdom, and Cinderella must marry The Prince so we can be queens together. In addition, we are teenagers! These are our golden years! We are supposed to party all night and sleep all day!! YOLO!!!!!!

I know she loves The Prince and that he loves her. They must marry one another and live happily ever after. Cinderella must be the one to marry The Prince at all costs!

Your Task

I have to make Cinderella understand that The Prince is the one for her. The Prince and I went to the same judo class when we were little. He is a good and genuine person.

I know that he was engaged once, but it was his father’s arrangement to secure political power.


Scene - 01

The evil stepmother Evil spoiled woman

I have married Cinderella’s father because I thought he is a rich business man! However, he always travels and I cannot ask him for his Platinum Isracard! I thought that if I marry him I will be richer than before, but it is not enough! I need to marry one of my precious daughters to The Prince. He must choose one of them at the ball and not Cinderella!

Cinderella thinks that I am old and that I did not notice her at the ball?! She will not steal The Prince away from my daughters; moreover, tomorrow in the “special cleaning day”! She must have a good night sleep to be able to work all day long! I will make her go home early even though I really do not care about her.

Your Task

The Prince’s father and I were engaged many years ago, and I was supposed to be the Queen! His family owes me money by right! And his son will marry one of my daughters!

I need to pretend to be a good mother for Cinderella so she will believe I care about her, so she will go home early and let me work my magic, so The Prince will not notice my daughters are fools.
