The Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich’s Theatre Program is proud to announce auditions for it's mainstage musical, "Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella”
The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein's CINDERELLA was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother.
As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits. In this specially created G2K version, all the beloved songs and familiar characters are present and accounted for. However, the entire script has been condensed to better suit young attention spans, and the plot has been slightly altered so as to highlight some important lessons that exist in this timeless tale.
Auditions will be held on December 13 & 14 at 6:00 pm-9:00 pm at the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich (4 Horseneck Lane, Greenwich, CT 06830). Rocco Natale will direct the musical with Christina Kompar as Music Director and Jennifer Ambrogio choreographing. Performances will occur May 3 & 4, 2013. Young people ages 6-18 are encouraged to audition. Auditoners should prepare an acapella song and be prepared to sing as well as read from a script. Participants must enroll before December 11th.
