Only actors needed for scheduled scenes will be required at rehearsals, and we’ll release the kids first and as early as possible. As we get further into rehearsals, we’ll need everybody there so we can run the whole show.

Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella is the new Broadway adaptation of the classic musical. This contemporary take on the classic tale features Rodgers & Hammerstein’s most beloved songs, including “In My Own Little Corner,” “Impossible/It’s Possible” and “Ten Minutes Ago,” alongside a hilarious and romantic libretto by Tony Award nominee Douglas Carter Beane, with new characters and surprising twists.
Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella was twice remade, first in 1965 for Lesley Ann Warren and then again in 1997 featuring Brandy and Whitney Houston.
The original Broadway production opened in 2013 and starred Laura Osnes, Santino Fontana, Victoria Clark and Harriet Harris. — rnh.com
