Rockwall Community Playhouse
RCP is seeking a diverse cast of excellent singer/dancer/actors for the Holiday musical production of the Original Version of CINDERELLA. This timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein's CINDERELLA was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true. CINDERELLA is based on the fairy tale by Charles Perrault, with music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics/book by Oscar Hammerstein II. Note this is the Original Version of CINDERELLA, and not the 2013 Broadway Version.
