Upstart Crow Children’s Theatre presents Cinderella Kids!
Grades 2-6

(Check out Mouse Crew for grades K-2!)

The timeless, “rags to riches” fairy tale becomes a new audience favorite in Disney’s Cinderella KIDS, an adaptation of the treasured animated film that will charm its way into your heart and remind audiences that dreams really can come true.

Poor Cinderella is endlessly mistreated by her wicked stepmother and stepsisters and denied a chance to go to the royal ball. With a little help from her mice friends – and a lot of help from her Fairy Godmother – Cinderella’s dreams come true. She goes to the ball, meets the Prince and falls in love.

Tuition $275.00

How to schedule your audition

 

Register for this production HERE: Registration Page. You will receive a confirmation email with a link to sign up for your audition appointment time.

Prepare a one minute-segment of a song from Cinderella. Bring your karaoke track with you to auditions on a phone, tablet, or other mp3 player. If you do not have a device to play your karaoke track, email the track to heidi@upstartcrowstudios.org by 3:00pm on the day of your audition and we will have it ready to play for you.

Prepare a 1 minute, memorized monologue. It is more important the monologue is memorized than it is for the monologue to be extensive. Auditionees should take the time to memorize their monologue so they are able to showcase their best acting skills rather than focusing on remembering words. Please contact the production manager, Heidi, at heidi@upstartcrowstudios.org if you have difficulties finding an appropriate monologue.

 

Dance auditions and callbacks will be held Wednesday, March 20th from 4:30-6:00pm.
