Thank you for auditioning for Youtheatre's production of

Performances: October 1 & 2, 2021

Director: Samantha Henry • Music Director: Zachary Thomas • Choreographer: Julie Lane

Thank you all so much for auditioning for Cinderella. We had a large turnout for auditions and this made decision-making difficult. Everyone did a fantastic job in auditions, but unfortunately, there were only so many cast roles to fill. To make our final casting decisions, we looked at things like schedules, conflicts and role requirements, as well as the actual audition itself. To those who were not selected for this production, please do not be discouraged! We had the pleasure of hearing some really great auditions over the last two days and we look forward to your coming back and working with us again!

If you are interested in being involved in the Technical Crew and your name isn’t on this list, or if you would like to be added to an additional position please email [email protected]. For every successful production, it takes a talented and strong Technical Crew – the Technical Crew is just as important as what takes place on the stage.

ALL assignments must be accepted or refused by 12 p.m., Thursday, August 5, by e-mailing [email protected] and indicating YOUTHEATRE RESPONSE in the subject line.

Remember, the decision of the directors is FINAL!

All youth participating in the production (as an on-stage cast member or technical crew member) and their parents must attend a mandatory meeting on Thursday, August 5, at 6:00 p.m. at the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts.  Informational packets will be handed out and questions will be answered. All on-stage cast members will be measured for costumes.  A read-through of the script will continue for the on-stage cast members until 8:00 p.m. 

*Please note that due to the Farmers Market at MCPA, you will need to park in the back parking lots and enter through the back-Stage Door.*
