Casting Notes

  • The role of the Baker’s Wife has been cast

  • The role of Little Red will be cast with an actor who is over the age of 18, however we may be casting additional roles with youth performers so we may ask that you prepare Little Red’s materials

  • Multiple roles in this production will be played by the same actor, so although the casting breakdown is traditional, casting will not be. As of now, the Princes are double cast as the Stepsisters, and all “mother” roles will be played by one actor
