Auditions for Cinderella

Stage Right in Conroe, Texas will be holding auditions for Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella on Sunday, April 29 and Monday, April 30, 2012 at 7:30 PM at the historic Crighton Theatre in downtown Conroe. Cinderella is the classic fairy tale as told by the musical theatre team of legend—Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II.

We are looking primarily for ADULT actors (over 18 years of age) for the lead roles in this production; however, there are several roles for children. The age requirements are listed below. The roles for Cinderella include: (No roles have been pre-cast.)

CINDERELLA (adult)—classic fairy tale heroine
FAIRY GODMOTHER (adult)—Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother, with a little bit of attitude
STEPMOTHER (adult)—Cinderella’s over-the-top stepmother
GRACE (adult)—Cinderella’s awkward stepsister
JOY (adult)—Cinderella’s sullen stepsister
CHRISTOPHER (adult)—Prince Charming
LIONEL (adult)—Christopher’s assistant/watcher
QUEEN CONSTANTINA (adult)—Christopher’s mother
KING MAXIMILLIAN (adult)—Christopher’s father
CHARLES (child)—Cinderella’s cat (Dance and/or Acrobatic skills are highly desired for this role.)
WHITE MICE (child)—Cinderella’s “friends”; multiple mice are needed (Dance and/or Acrobatic skills are highly desired for these roles.)
CHORUS (adult; will consider teens)—will be used to fill in smaller parts throughout the musical, including but not limited to an opening street scene and the ball at the palace.

Since Cinderella is a full musical, auditioners need to prepare a singing audition. You are asked to prepare a song from a Rodgers & Hammerstein musical—but NOT from Cinderella. You may perform your audition piece with piano accompaniment or with CD accompaniment (with no lead vocals) with a preference for music on a CD or ipod touch.

Auditioners will also be asked to cold-read from the Cinderella script. A short dance/acrobatic skills audition may be required as well for some auditioners.

Performances run July 13-29, 2012. Performances Friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons.
Rehearsals begin Wednesday, May 2, 2012. A basic rehearsal schedule will be available at the auditions.
ALL roles are non-paid. For more information, contact the director Debra Schultz at

Barefoot in the Park - Auditions

Auditions will be held for Barefoot in the Park on Dec. 4-5, 2011 at 7 PM at the historic Crighton Theatre.

Character Description
Corie Bratter - a newlywed, married only six days at the beginning of the play. She is
young, pretty, and full of enthusiasm for the future. Impulsive and fun-loving, she considers
herself a doer, not a watcher. Her impetuosity is not shared, at first, by her mother or
husband, and they are aghast when she cheers the crazy antics of Victor, a neighbor. Corie
eventually learns to appreciate dependability and quiet strength.

Paul Bratter - Corie’s husband, a twenty-six-year-old attorney in his first job. Both his dress
and his outlook are very conservative. Extremely proper and dignified, he always knows the
right thing to say. He is levelheaded and practical, and he keeps his emotions in check,
perhaps too much so. After Corie accuses him of lacking playfulness, he shows her that he,
too, is capable of walking barefoot in the park.

Ethel Banks - Corie’s mother. She is in her late forties. Although she is still pretty, she has
fallen out of step with the fashions. She lives alone in West Orange, New Jersey. Consciously
or unconsciously, she has adopted a narrow image of herself as someone with a sensitive
stomach, a bad back, and no need for romance. It takes a wild evening out with Victor for
Ethel to rediscover her carefree and spontaneous self.

Victor Velasco - the Bratters’ upstairs neighbor. Fifty-eight years old, he is a colorful
character. Although capable of looking positively natty in a double-breasted pinstriped suit, he
also wears Japanese kimonos and berets. He is vain, flamboyant, and without shame when it
comes to letting someone else pick up a tab. Married three times, he is a terrific flirt. He is
also a gourmet cook; Paul refers to him as the “Hungarian Duncan Hines.” There are signs
that Victor is beginning to slow down. After an exhilarating evening of his own creation, he
suffers a broken toe and an upset stomach.

Harry Pepper - a telephone repairman. He witnesses, to his mortification, a fight between
Corie and Paul.

Delivery Man – Non-speaking cameo role

A Christmas Story - Auditions

STAGE RIGHT of Texas announces auditions for their upcoming production of A CHRISTMAS STORY. Director Jim Bingham is looking for a large cast of all ages.

The cast requirements are for two men (ages 40 and older), two women (ages 35 and older), four boys (ages 9-12), one boy (age 5-7), and two girls (ages 9-12). Other children ages 5-12 and adults will be cast for various non-speaking roles.

Actor call times are staggered with children rehearsing first and released early on school nights. All cast and crew are required to be present for tech week beginning Nov. 27th.

Auditions will be held at the Crighton Theatre rehearsal hall (enter at 117 Simonton) on Oct. 16 & 17 at 7 pm. Callback auditions may be held at the discretion of the director. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. Sides can be emailed prior to the audition by request via . Contact the director at for questions about the auditions, the show or to volunteer to help backstage.

Christmas is a time of great expectations, especially through the eyes of a child. For nine-year-old Ralphie Parker that great expectation is a genuine Red Ryder 200 Shot Carbine Action Air Rifle. No self-respecting cowboy would be without one. Unfortunately, his mom, teacher and even the Santa Claus toiling away at Goldblatt's Department Store share the same reaction to his Christmas wish: "You'll shoot your eye out!" Based on the book by humorist Jean Shepherd and adapted for the stage by Philip Grecian the play has all the scenes you’ve come to love in the movie; the flagpole, the bunny suit, and the infamous lamp! A CHRISTMAS STORY will delight the whole family and fill you with the spirit of the season.

Show dates are Dec. 2-18 with Friday & Saturday performances at 8 pm and two Sunday matinees on Dec. 11 & 18 at 2 pm. Performances will be held at the historic Crighton Theatre at 234 N. Main in downtown Conroe.
