      • King Hubert [M] – Phillip’s father; loyal friend of King Stefan and should be played by a strong actor who can comfort his friend as he gives his daughter away and celebrate with everyone.
      • Flora [F] – a fairy; the ringleader and most practical of the Three Fairies, requiring a strong actress, singer and dancer. If she doesn’t think something is a good idea, then it doesn’t happen. However, Flora is not bossy – just more clearheaded than the others.
