ABOUT THE PLAY
Originally scheduled for Spring 2021 as part of our COVID-canceled Season 48, Four County Players is thrilled to finally be presenting the area premiere of the new 2013 Broadway version RODGERS & HAMMERSTEIN’S CINDERELLA! This refreshing take on the classic fairy tale features some of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s most beloved songs, including “In My Own Little Corner,” “Impossible/It’s Possible,” and “Ten Minutes Ago,” as well as some never-before-heard Rodgers & Hammerstein songs added to the score. The new book is an up-to-date, hilarious, and romantic libretto by Tony Award-nominee Douglas Carter Beane, and sends an important message about choosing your own destiny. Cinderella is filled with unforgettable magic, music, and the reminder that if you believe, anything is possible.
 
ABOUT AUDITIONS
Director/Choreographer Perry Medlin, Vocal Director Amelia Camacho, and Music Director Laura Collier are looking for a strong, diverse cast AGES 14 AND UP to bring this magical show to life. Actors of all races and ethnicities will be considered for all roles. Please see this link for full character descriptions: https://rb.gy/qrh5gn
Initial auditions will consist of 1.5 hour time slots. Each time slot will begin with a group dance audition. Following the group dance audition, you will be called in individually to sing your audition song. After you have sung, you are free to leave.
DANCE AUDITION: Wear clothes you can move in, and close-toed shoes. You will have a chance to change your clothes before your vocal audition, if you wish (but by no means is that an expectation).
VOCAL AUDITION: Please prepare a song of approximately 32 bars that shows us how amazing you are! Musical theater songs are preferred (including songs from the show). Please bring sheet music in your key, as we will have a live accompanist and do need to hear you sing with the piano. Musicnotes.com is a great resource for music!
Scene readings will be at callbacks, so you don’t need to worry about that at initial auditions, but Perry recommends you familiarize yourself with the story and the script if possible. Copies of the script are available upon request (email auditions@fourcp.org).
