The role of the baker is played by Owen Adachi, with Kelsie Peters as the baker’s wife.

Caylee Watrin brings the complicated witch to life, while Julianna Altilia takes the audience through the story as the narrator.

Other featured roles are played by Claire Cruson as Cinderella, Rylea Clark as Little Red Riding Hood, Nikki Song as Jack, Chiara Pirritano as Rapunzel, and Simon Davis and Jonathon Romanuk as the princes.
