Auditions for

Cinderella

Directed by Nedra Pace

SYNOPSIS: 

The familiar, yet timeless story of a young girl who, when her beloved father dies, is left in the clutches of a cruel stepmother who favors her own two daughters and treats Cinderella as a lowly servant.  Cinderella, inwardly wishing to find love, dreams of attending a ball that is being hosted by the local Prince, whose intention is to find a bride among the guests.  Her fairy godmother comes to her aid in making it possible for her to attend.  Though there are frustrating circumstances that arise, a romantic, fairy-tale ending is finally reached. 

 

This is the 2013 Broadway adaptation of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic musical.  Some characters have been added or adapted to make this a thoroughly delightful, enchanting experience for cast and audience alike.  Included in the magical score are “In My Own Little Corner,” “Impossible/It's Possible” and “Ten Minutes Ago,” with an upbeat, hilarious, romantic script.

CAST OF CHARACTERS:

Ella (soprano range):  Beneath her rags, she is charismatic, beautiful, funny, idealistic, and hopeful.  She is not afraid to challenge policies in the kingdom.  She wishes for a loving relationship with a similar young man, who turns out to be the Prince!! 

Topher (tenor/high baritone):  A misguided and lost prince who longs for meaning in his life.  Charming, but NOT a stereotypical ladies’ man, he is thoughtful, appealing, and innocent—with an unforced goofy streak. 

Madame (mezzo/alto):  Ella’s selfish stepmother.  The epitome of vanity and fashion, she is a ravenous social climber.  Unapologetically dismissive and sometimes cruel.

Sebastian (baritone):  The kingdom’s Lord Chancellor.  As Topher’s trusted advisor, he is devious and selfish.    Sebastian rules without regard for the lower class--or anyone other than himself--and truly believes he deserves to rule the kingdom.

Marie (soprano):  The town’s crazy lady and beggar woman and a friend to Ella.  Marie is actually a fairy godmother in disguise.  Wise, warm, otherworldly, and charming.  Marie makes Ella’s dreams a possibility.

Gabrielle (soprano):  Ella’s stepsister and daughter of Madame.  Though she is encouraged by her mother and sister to value material wealth and social status, she is ironically aware that she doesn’t fit in with her family.  She is quietly passionate and empathetic, and she is drawn to Ella and to Jean-Michel. 

Charlotte (mezzo/belt):  Ella’s stepsister and daughter of Madame.  Brash, self-centered, snooty and loud.  Likes a lot of attention.

Jean-Michel (2nd tenor/baritone):  A feisty, passionate peasant determined to make social changes.  Has a crush on Gabrielle, though they are from different social classes.

Lord Pinkleton (tenor):  The Lord Chancellor’s right-hand man.  Announces royal balls, banquets, and even the weather to the villagers.
