A note from the Director:


"There are so many versions of Cinderella’s story that you lose track of what she looks like, what she’s supposed to be wearing, and if it even ends happily ever after. No matter what version you are seeing at its core, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella remains a heartfelt tale of the girl from the cinders who connects with her prince. But each version of Cinderella shows her to be a little different, whether tried and true (Original), an outsider hoping to find her way in (Enchanted Edition), or forthright and kind as she tries to change the prince into a better man (Broadway Version)."


"I fell in love with the Broadway version a few years ago. The way Ella takes control, changes the world, and gets the guy at the end is a refreshing look at this classic story. The story is poignant and timely but also timeless."


"The vision for OLTs production is to bring together a talented group of people as a community to create a magical experience for the audience. Give the young audience members the thrill of seeing a pumpkin become a golden carriage. Then make the adults in the audience think about how Ella should behave and what is right for the people in the story."


Auditions are open to all people ages 16 and up


How to Audition:

Please prepare a song either from Cinderella (Broadway Edition) or a song in similar style (16 bars)
