"I Wish" songs and how I need to find mine again--you know, finding that dream that drives.
Oddly enough, my next role is a character whose first and last words of the show are "I wish.." I love that fact and have a hard time believing it is merely a coincidence.
So in several weeks I GET TO BE CINDERELLA! BAHHH!!!!
If you look closely, you can even see the glass slipper on the cake. A nice touch.
So here are a few of the role models.
A young Julie Andrews--the epitome of porcelain doll. She was Cinderella in the Rodgers and Hammerstein version. It aired on television on March 31st, 1957 and was witnessed by 107 million viewers.
Classic Disney. Probably my first introduction to the story and told in an unforgettable way. The mice weren't included in the original story, but their minute presence contributed to the success of this film in a huge way.
It's been fun researching this. I just hope that we have a great rehearsal period and a great run. I can't even tell you how excited I am to be on stage with so many fellow actors I admire and a production dream team I can't wait to work with!
