Book by Nathan Hartswick

Music and Lyrics by Bill Francoeu

Is ever after really as happy as everyone expected?

In this hilarious parody of daytime TV, our host wonders if time truly heals all wounds. The host invites Cinderella and her middle-aged ‘beauty-impaired’ stepsisters to reconcile with each other after being estranged for 20 years. Can Snow White make amends with the Evil Queen? And what secret is the frog prince hiding? This hysterical fractured fairy tale has it all.

At your audition, you will sing a song and read a selection from the script. We prefer songs that tell a story in a humorous way since all the songs in The Ever After do that.

Please arrange accompaniment such as your smart phone, a memory stick or a URL for your audition as the only equipment available at the audition will be a computer connected to the internet.

Also, please bring a resume listing your theatre experience to the audition.
