SteppingStone Theatre auditions for Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters!

SteppingStone Theatre auditions for Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters!

SteppingStone Theatre is very proud to announce auditions for Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters! For this production, we're looking for young actors between the ages of 12-19, and four adult (2F, 2M) roles for actors age 20+. The adult roles include a small stipend; youth roles are not paid.


The Great King is seeking a Queen worthy of the realm. Mufaro journeys to the King with his two daughters, certain that one of them will be chosen. Discover that beauty is not the measure of greatness, and strength is found in kindness, in this moving folktale from Zimbabwe. A lush adaptation of the Caldecott Award-Winning book featuring music, dance, and joyous celebration.
