    Hello!
    Upon acceptance of a performer role in the DCP, is it the norm to receive disclosure of a specific character that you're slated to play...er, be friends with?
    I have read of other people being indentified as "PFLA" which I believe stands for "Potential Face Look-Alikes", but I was under the impression that the rest of the furry folks were cast into a height-determined pool until they are approved for one or more characters. My information is obviously wrong, however, as my daughter's confirmation email names a specific furry friend. She is delighted to be friends with this character, but neither she or I has come across anyone else with this particular circumstance.
    Anyone else have any experience with this?

    Based on the experience of a few people I know that did entertainment in CP, you are a variety of characters within your height group. The one character that was named is probably representative of the height group she falls into. Which character was named?

    In my experiences i have not heard of this, but at check-in (when you get to casting) some people are "accidentally" told they will be friends with Mickey.. which is a height range that contains alot of friends.

    Hello!
    Thank you so much for responding!
    After paying her deposit, my daughter received an email that said: "...We are thrilled that you have decided to join us in the CHARACTER PERFORMER-TIGGER role!"
    My daughter is a dancer, but from what we gather, she's too tall for most dance roles....perhaps that's why?
    Any other tall female performers out there? How 'bout others who are/have been friends with Tigger?
    We'd be delighted to hear your thoughts!

    I believe that is the 'Tigger' height class- Character Performer- Tigger is the class for the range of characters that are in Tigger's height range. hope that helps!

    Yeah it's just the height class

    5'10" - 5'11": Geppetto, Sherriff of Nottingham, Foulfellow, King Lion, Tigger
    5'11" - 6'0": Foulfellow, King Lion, Sheriff of Nottingham, Tigger
