Confederation Centre Recruiting Musicians for Cinderella: A Fairly Tall Tale

September 22, 2014

(Charlottetown, P.E.I.) - With an audition call already out for interested performers, choirs, and dance troupes, Confederation Centre is now on the hunt for orchestra members to help bring this year's holiday musical to life. Cinderella: A Fairly Tall Tale comes to the Centre's Homburg Theatre this Christmas for a nine show run between December 12 and 20. Directed by incoming artistic director Adam Brazier, with musical direction from Matt Campbell (Canada ROCKS!, Musical Director for Dear Johnny Deere) this comedic family musical features an exhilarating song-list of pop hits and well-known musical numbers.

To arrange an audition, interested musicians should send an e-mail indicating what instrument you play to Cindy Riley at criley@confederationcentre.com. If a web link is available of you playing your instrument, please include it in the email. Audition times will then be arranged for Sunday, September 28 beginning at 12 noon in the Mawson Rehearsal Hall at the Centre. Both traditional and pop instruments are welcome.

Orchestra rehearsals will begin in mid to late November and performances will be split between four matinees and five evenings, between December 12 and December 20. Please note that these positions are available on a volunteer basis.
