Auditions for Cinderella
The Bryn Mawr School will host auditions for the Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella. We will be mounting the 2013 Broadway revival which has many more roles for women, deepened character work and great singing roles for men, a featured dance ensemble, and a women-make-their-own-magic message. If you think you know the story of Cinderella, you're in for a treat with this charming updated version of the story.
For your convenience, we have changed audition dates to coincide with the first week of school!
Sunday, August 25 1-4pm in NB3
