Douglas Carter Beane’s new book re-invents the classic tale of a maid-turned-princess with fresh comedy, wit and satire: with pumpkin, glass slippers, Fairy Godmother and other story elements intact, it is now Cinderella’s turn to rescue the Prince, reminding us once again that in a cruel world the act that matters most is kindness.

 

We are seeking all ethnicities and types for all roles.

 

SEEKING:

 

ELLA: Female, 20’s. ANY ETHNICITY. Though no one notices her beneath her rags and quiet demeanor, she is opinionated, charismatic, passionate, funny, and effortlessly beautiful. Idealistic and hopeful, she courageously challenges the prince to change the policies in his kingdom – and helps him discover who he truly is. Always her late father’s daughter, she is determined to see the good in everyone despite her hardships and suffering. We see her blossom into a confident woman. An elegant dancer, she must have strong dance and partnering skills and great comedic timing. Beautiful and expressive traditional musical theatre soprano.

 

TOPHER: Male, 20’s. ANY ETHNICITY. A misguided and lost prince who longs to do something important with his life.  Though brave and heroic, he feels lonely and unfulfilled. Charming but NOT a stereotypical ladies man, he is thoughtful, appealing, and innocent – with an unforced goofy streak. Moral, genuine, and kindhearted, he is at a crossroads and must take control of his kingdom and his future. Must have strong dance and partnering skills and great comedic timing. Soaring, rich musical theatre baritone to a G. 

 

JEAN-MICHEL/ENSEMBLE: Male, 20’s. ANY ETHNICITY. A feisty, passionate peasant determined to make a change for the starving class. Impetuous. A firebrand, but lacks authority and isn’t taken seriously as a revolutionary. Has a crush on Gabrielle, though their courtship is forbidden because they are from different social classes. Interesting physical type – he could be scrawny, short, tall, chubby, etc. Must have great comic timing and understand musical phrasing. Traditional musical theatre voice with an attractive, compelling sound.  Also doubles in the ensemble. Must move well. 

MALE TUMBLERS (FOX & RACCOON): To play characters 20s-30s, including the Fox footman and Raccoon carriage driver. ANY ETHNICITY. 5’10” or smaller. Must be fantastic dancers with strong ballet technique for extensive partnering and lifts. Must tumble well: back handsprings, back tucks, aerials, etc. Strong singers for multiple voice parts. Potential to cover as well.

 

MALE AND FEMALE DANCERS: 20s-30s, ANY ETHNICITY. Must be elegant dancers with solid ballet technique for extensive partnering and lifts.  Strong singers who can handle multiple vocal parts.  Also seeking principal covers and swings.
