ABOUT THE SHOW:
The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
Please arrive early to fill out the audition form (be sure to bring a list of all conflicts). Everyone auditioning will be asked to sing 16-32 bars of a prepared song and read aloud from the script. Please bring your own accompaniment – a CD/MP3 player will be provided.
