REHEARSALS begin next week for Saffron Walden Musical Theatre Company’s (SWMTC) 2011 production, the hit family musical Mister Cinders, by Vivian Ellis.

The story is an inversion of the Cinderella fairy tale with the roles reversed. Prince Charming is a twenties flapper girl; while Mister Cinders is a lowly servant with whom she falls in love. The show captures the energy, wit and fun of the roaring ‘20s and is full of flapper girls and Charleston dancers.

SWMTC is looking for singers, dancers and actors who would like to join it for this show in March 2011.

Originally performed in the 1920s, Mister Cinders was revived in the West End during the ‘80s. Its headline song ‘Spread a Little Happiness’ became a chart-topping success for Pop legend Sting.

Mister Cinders has many parts for actors of all ages – to suit performers of a variety of ages from early 20s upwards. The company would also welcome anyone who would like to perform as part of the chorus.

SWMTC is a friendly and inclusive society.

It meets on Wednesday evenings at the Baptist Church in Saffron Walden. Its first meeting is on Wednesday September 15 at 8pm.

The company would encourage anyone who thinks they might be interested to come along and join them on the evening itself. Alternatively, if you require further information, e-mail secretary@swmusicaltheatre.co.uk or call the secretary on 07798 790609.
