Description:

Production of "Saving Cinderella" seeks male and female talent. Please find more details below. ONLY LOCAL TALENT WILL BE CONSIDERED. About the project: Cinderella must abandon old insecurities and rise up to save herself and her country in this spirited poverty-fighting sequel to the famous fable. Becoming a princess is far from a dream come true as Cinderella’s innocent eyes are opened to the cruel intrigues of courtly life. The Prince stands aloof – convinced he’s already saved her – and pressure mounts as the Princess cannot even command her own servants. Everyone thinks they know what the help should look like, but they couldn’t be further from lifting up Cinderella. Feeble and faint, she falls from grace and returns to the ashes. When Cinderella abandons the crown, the vacuum is soon filled by a new nemesis – an avaricious Advisor. Will the Prince be convinced to sign away power, or will Cinderella stop the deadly chain of events? Bolstered by friends, in the end she must choose – will she listen to the lies or will she hear the truth? Will she finally see “It’s Time To Get Up?” She’d better act quick – before time runs out! Kingdoms and kindly words just aren’t enough when you’re SAVING CINDERELLA.
