General auditions for the spring Cinderella ballet performance will be held by the Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts (MCA) at the Valéncia Arts Center on January 20 from 3-6 p.m.
The Dance Repertory Company performance will run from April 19-22 at the Page Theatre on the Saint Mary’s University campus. With whimsical scenery, a romantic story, and comical stepsisters, this production of “Cinderella” promises a dose of humor with the majesty of classical ballet. The enchanting music of Sergei Prokofieve helps bring this well-loved fairy tale to life.
It’s free to audition and roles are available for male and female dancers ages six and older. Those cast will pay a $75 performance fee (with the exception of Saint Mary’s students) and will need to be enrolled in at least one dance class at MCA. The performance fee covers rehearsal instruction and costumes.
