Casting Cinderella & Rockerfella

What a difficult task we had casting the show this year! The caliber of all the auditions we saw was truly exceptional and the production team and I are excited to start rehearsals on Friday.

We had a record number of children come to be involved this year and managed to see 60 auditions over the course of the afternoon. It was wonderful to see the vast improvement our returning performers have made and lovely to see so much new talent.

We only started looking at who could part at around 5:00pm and it took us until 5:30pm to assign the first part. Once this was done it was easier to match other performers to their look and style and the process moved a lot quicker.

As ever, it is a terribly difficult task to cast a production, even more so when all the auditionees are good. There are many factors that the audition panel must take into account when assigning roles. Here are just a few that we have considered:



Singing ability

Acting ability

Interaction with other performers

How paired parts look together

How the overall cast will look together

Movement ability
