Synopsis Weave together the feel of a classic fairy tale, the delight of a fractured fairy tale and the fun of a mystery in need of solving, and you can’t go wrong with this hilarious, expertly-woven romp!
When a girl wakes up alone in a tower in the forest, she has no memory of her past. She can’t remember where she’s from or how she got there. She can’t even remember her own name! All alone, she embarks on a journey to recall her past. Along the way, she meets several fairy-tale characters — Hansel and Gretel, Rumpelstiltskin, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Cinderella and Rapunzel to name a few. Some are helpful and some dangerous, yet all have information that intertwines and helps our fair maiden recall her own story, eventually revealing her true identity as a princess. Of course, her prince is desperately looking for her, but he seems to always be one step behind and inadvertently rescuing and winning the hearts of the wrong princesses!
With plenty of roles to go around and fun new takes on the stories everyone loves, the Princess’s quest to remember her true identity will keep everyone guessing to the happily ever after ending.
Dress the part: We recommend clothes you can move
in, closed toed shoes, a shirt that covers your tummy, and no
distracting jewelry. You want to show your personality, but still have
the focus be on YOU.
Before you audition: Introduce yourself
with confidence and a huge smile. State your full name and one thing about you. Keep it happy and bright. Definitely
practice this as part of your audition with lots of energy. One of our
best tips for auditions is to remember to “take a beat”. This
means, take at least 1 deep breath, position yourself, and then begin.
Learn your stuff: Practice, practice, practice! You have 30 seconds to
stand out. Reading lyrics or reciting a monologue from a paper makes it hard to express your personality. When it is memorized, students are more confident in their audition.
Overall Smile, be confident, and be yourself. You learn something from every audition so the more you audition, the better you will become. Relax...and have fun!
