Eden Prairie Players

Live Theater in Eden Prairie

Cononavirus note

Because of the Coronavirus and restrictions on public gatherings and use of city facilities, the Children's Theatre Workshop auditions have been postponed with no new date announced yet. Please feel free to sign up anyway and we will notify all signed-up auditioners of the new dates.

Unfortunately, the summer musical, Cinderella, has had to be cancelled this year. We would not be able to have auditions and begin rehearsals soon enough to be able to have a quality production of this show ready for our June performance dates, and there is no opportunity to postpone the production to another date in 2020.

Auditions for Children's Theatre Workshop

Eden Prairie Players is holding Auditions for our Children's Theater Workshop!

Cinderella and the Substitute Fairy Godmother

by Ed Monk
directed by Gina Light
produced by Liz Michaelson 

It's the night of the royal ball and Cinderella must get to the palace if she is ever to meet her one true love, Prince Charmfull. But when she calls for her Fairy Godmother, it turns out that some bad potato salad has given all the Fairy Godmothers food poisoning. Enter Lucretia Fossilwart, scented candle saleswoman and Substitute Fairy Godmother. This will not end well. (Or will it?)

Where and When

Because of restrictions on public gatherings and use of city facilities at this time, we have postponed these auditions and do not yet have new audition dates scheduled. If you are interested, please sign up for auditions anyway and we will notify you when we know more.

Audition Info 

Great roles for boys and girls ages 9-15 (21 to 29 children will be cast). If cast, a $275 fee* is assessed for this 3-week program with rehearsals beginning July 13. We are requesting that each child actor arrive at 6:30 PM with parent/guardian.  After sign in and a brief informational meeting, we will begin auditions at 7:00 PM. Parents/Guardians are expected to stay until the end of the audition process.

Dress for comfort & movement. We ask that if girls wear skirts they also wear shorts or other pants under them.  Please wear shoes, not flip-flops.

Before the Audition

A parent or guardian should fill out our online audition form. Having this done in advance saves a lot of time at the auditions. Before filling it out, please find a photo of your child who is auditioning that you can upload. It should be a JPEG file. Ideally, it should be a portrait-oriented picture of just the child, facing the camera. If you do not have this as a file on your computer, you can bring a photo to the audition. Also, when filling out the form, please have your family calendar available as you will be asked to mark the dates of rehearsals that your child will be unable to attend.
