Cinderella arrives at St Norbert College in 2021
On Sunday, 18 October, a group of nervous but excited students spent the day auditioning in the Xanten Performing Arts Centre for next year’s College production.
They were all very well prepared and it was a joy to listen to them and to see them all audition for the roles in the show. The creative team certainly put the students through their paces. It was not an easy task, but decisions were made and we are delighted to have found a wonderful cast for this show.
Rehearsals have started and we will continue in Term 4 and start early in the new year. This show is funny, moving, creative and clever and wonderful for the whole family to see.
Be dazzled by the traditional story of Cinderella as she meets her Prince Charming. There are some very modern takes on some things in the show and we can guarantee you an enchanted night. Pumpkins, fairy godmothers, step sisters who really are not terribly clever, a very sarcastic friend to Prince Charming and a host of other characters will promise you a wonderful night.
Stay tuned for more details about the show. It is certainly one not to be missed!
