Cinderella Kids

“Cinderella Kids” has a talented cast comprising award winners and nominees ages 6-10.

A timeless fairytale meets the magic of Disney in the Musical Theatre of Anthem’s production of “Cinderella Kids.”

In the adaptation of the treasured animated film, poor Cinderella is endlessly mistreated by her wicked stepmother and stepsisters and denied a chance to go to the royal ball. A little help from her mice friends and a touch of magic from her Fairy Godmother send Cinderella to the ball to meet the Prince and fall in love.

The production — which features a beautiful score including “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” and the classic “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo” — take place Thursday, Feb. 17, through Sunday, Feb. 20, at Musical Theatre of Anthem’s performance space, 42201 N. 41st Drive, Suite B100. Tickets cost $25.

Auditions take place Saturday, Jan. 8. The cost is $325 for ages 6-10, but all youth who audition are cast. Those auditioning should bring a musical theatre song (or any song they are comfortable with), 16-32 bars or 1 minute in length.
