Play Synopsis: 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. BUT – this won’t be your typical Princess story!
Poor Cinderella is endlessly mistreated by her wicked stepmother and stepsisters (these hilarious wacky parts may be played by both boys and girls!), 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.
But that’s not all! With many featured speaking roles, and a splash of Broadway, this is the perfect show for both boys and girls. Look out for hysterical and beloved characters in the Duke, Cinderella’s Father, Loveable Mice, Town Cryer and Narrators!

Arts Alive Artistic Director, Dena Davis, shares some insight into the auditioning process. Check out the video!
