Cinderella: If The Shoe Fits
Doug MacDougall is holding Virtual auditions for Cinderella: If The Shoe Fits ... (Virtual Pantomime) on Saturday, October 23, 2021 from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. for Musical Theatre actors/actresses aged 18+. If you're interested in a particular role, you may forward a current headshot and an updated CV to email@example.com.
Set in medieval France, “Cinderella: If the Shoe Fits…” is written in the style of traditional English pantomime. Chock full of twists and turns, music and laughter, our heroine Cinderella tries to thwart her evil stepmother and twisted stepsisters who in addition to a flutter of princesses have their sights set on becoming royalty through marriage to the affable Prince Charming. Thanks to fairy magic and the help of some unexpected characters along the journey, love may just conquer all in the end! Throw in some familiar songs, hilarious sound effects and cheesy puns, and you have the makings for great musical comedy!
ALL cast members MUST have:
-a Ring Light set up;
-an iPhone or built-in laptop/desktop camera/microphone for self-taping music selections;
-wireless ear buds;
-a Green Screen backdrop (for Virtual Backgrounds);
-Snap Camera app filter for Zoom downloaded on laptop/desktop;
-a willingness to source out some character *costume/props;
-a reliable grounded Internet connection (Ethernet cable), and lastly,
-an ability to speak French or simulate a French accent would be an asset as the action takes place primarily in France.
*Specialty items will be provided on loan.
Virtual rehearsals begin late October and continue through mid-November and will be conducted WEDNESDAY and FRIDAY EVENINGS and some SATURDAY AFTERNOONS as required for 2-3 hours (see attached schedule) Filming will take place mid to end November.
N.B. This will be a CHARITY FUNDRAISING EVENT in December in support of FOOD BANKS CANADA and FEEDING AMERICA, for our friends south of the border. It will feature a virtual ZOOM broadcast screening of a professionally edited film and soundtrack with a Cast Meet ’n Greet afterwards.
