The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.

James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone's favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece... and a rare modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.

Show Notes:

  • CYT students ages 8-18 who are currently enrolled in a class IN ROCKLIN may audition for this show. 
  • An online audition form will be emailed to all students enrolled in a CYT class that selected to participate in auditions. The form will require a bio photo upload, music track upload, and costume measurements in addition to other information. 
  • Some who audition may also be requested to attend a Callback on a second date. 

VOCAL & PRELIMINARY DANCE AUDITIONS: Held on Monday, February 26.   Location: Valley Springs Church (2401 OLYMPUS DRIVE, Roseville)
Students will sign up for a 30 min group audition slot sometime between 3:30pm - 8:30pm.  Please choose a track with no accompanying vocals (such as a karaoke track). Audition music should be no more than 1 minute. Auditions should be to music (not acapella). The director needs to see how well the student can stay with the music, both in tune and in rhythm. You will be able to upload your music to the audition form. It's best if you have a YouTube link or an actual song file rather than getting a song through iTunes, Spotify or Amazon. We cannot open files through these services.  Students will learn choreography at home via video and will come ready to perform it for the directors right after their vocal audition. 

CALLBACKS (including Featured Dancers) : Held on Tuesday, February 27 Location: Valley Springs Church (2401 OLYMPUS DRIVE, Roseville) starting at 4:00pm. The directors will call back certain students to sing again, read a scene, dance some more or any combination of these. They will often ask pairs or groups of students to read scenes to see how different combinations of sizes and personalities work together. CYT callbacks are closed to everyone except the show directors.  If a student is not "called back" it does not mean that they will not be cast in the show.

  • Students who audition are NOT eligible for a class tuition refund regardless of casting. 
  • All students cast in the show will be charged a production fee of $210.
  • Families are required to volunteer 20+ hours on a parent team.
