Youth on Stage | Ages 14-22

Join the Youth on Stage Cast of Cinderella this summer!

Auditions are set for May 17 and 22 at 7:00PM.

Questions? Contact director Liz Liszanckie liszanckie@gmail.com


The YOS program will rehearse Sunday – Thursday evenings finding a way to put our individual voices into this classic story. The cast will perform at the NFCT gala on June 8th at Hallockville Farm as well as the dates listed below.

To prepare for the audition, have a song ready that you feel confident singing. You should sing about 32 bars (or 30 seconds). You can bring your own backing track to sing along with or bring sheet music for an accompanist to play. If you want to sing a song from the show, the sheet music will be available.

There will also be a dance audition. The choreographer will teach you a section of a dance that you will perform in small groups. Please wear comfortable shoes to dance in. Open back shoes, flip flops or sandals will not be accepted.

Some will be asked to join us for callbacks on May 25 at 2:00 PM.

If you still have questions, reach out to the director, Liz Liszanckie (liszanckie@gmail.com).



There aren’t many people who aren’t familiar with the story of Cinderella. In the Rodgers and Hammerstein Broadway version Ella feels frustrated with a world she cannot change while Prince Topher has no idea who he is supposed to be. They both feel isolated and lost, looking to make a change. This version has a stepmother and stepsisters as well as a fairy godmother. We add Jean-Michel, a revolutionary to shake up the traditional story we all know.

Come help us put our spin on this classic tale.


Character Descriptions

ELLA – Though no one notices her beneath her rags and quiet demeanor, she is opinionated, charismatic, passionate, beautiful, and funny. Idealistic and hopeful, she courageously challenges the prince to change the policies in his kingdom – and helps him discover who he truly is. She is determined to see the good in everyone despite her hardships and suffering.

TOPHER – A misguided and lost prince who longs to do something important with his life. Though brave and heroic, he feels lonely and unfulfilled. Charming but NOT a stereotypical ladies man, he is thoughtful, appealing, and innocent – with an unforced goofy streak. Moral, genuine, and kindhearted, he is at a crossroads and must take control of his kingdom and his future.

MARIE – A friend to Ella and the town’s resident eccentric lady and beggar woman, Marie is actually a fairy godmother in disguise. Wise, warm, otherworldly, and charming, Marie rewards Ella for her kindness by making her dreams a possibility.

SEBASTIAN – The kingdom’s Lord Chancellor. Though he is Topher’s trusted advisor, he is devious and selfish. Using propaganda and dishonesty, he keeps Topher isolated and in the dark about his kingdom. Sebastian rules without regard for the lower class and truly believes he deserves to rule the kingdom.

LORD PINKLETON – The Lord Chancellor’s right-hand man. Announces royal balls, banquets, and even the weather to the villagers.

MADAME – Ella’s selfish stepmother. The epitome of vanity and fashion. A ravenous social climber who values wealth, status, and material possessions above all else. Unapologetically dismissive and sometimes cruel, Madame schemes her way up the social ladder.

GABRIELLE – Ella’s stepsister and daughter of Madame. Encouraged by her mother and sister to value material wealth and social status, she unenthusiastically joins them in their abrasive behavior. Quietly passionate, empathetic, and witty, she is drawn to Ella and Jean-Michel. Ironically aware that she doesn’t fit in.

CHARLOTTE – Ella’s stepsister and daughter of Madame. Brash, self-centered, materialistic, snooty, loud, sassy, and bratty, she has a ridiculously high, but unfounded, opinion of herself. She never passes up an opportunity to be the center of attention.

JEAN-MICHEL – A feisty, passionate peasant determined to make a change for the starving class. Impetuous. A firebrand, but lacks authority and isn’t taken seriously as a revolutionary. Has a crush on Gabrielle, though their courtship is forbidden because they are from different social classes.


Footman, Coachman, Knights, Peasants, Serfs, Townspeople, Ladies and Gentlemen of the Court, Servants, etc.
