Prince Charming can call her, but he better not forget her glass slippers.

Carly Rae Jepsen, the voice behind the catchy 2012 pop hit “Call Me Maybe,” will make her Broadway debut as the shoe-loving princess in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella beginning February 4, 2014. And the Canadian singer-songwriter has big shoes to fill. Jepsen takes over the role from Tony Award-nominee Laura Osnes.

“Dear @LauraOsnes I think you are truly lovely,” Jepsen tweeted. “Big shoes to fill! It’s an honor to try on the Cindy shoes! Xoxox.”

Jepsen, who starred in theatrical productions of Annie, The Wiz, and Grease in high school before attending the Canadian College of Performing Arts hopes to dazzle audiences during her 12-week run at the Broadway Theatre in New York City.

“My favorite part of the school year was our trip to New York, where we met Broadway performers and toured the theatres,” Jepsen told the media recently.  “It’s so hopeful and inspiring. I’ve always been one to believe in the impossible, so I relate to her character completely.”

She continued: ”Broadway has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl and I look forward to working with this incredibly talented cast to tell this classic tale. These last few years have been a real fairy tale come to life for me, so I feel especially blessed to play this part and be reminded that you must never stop dreaming!”

Also joining the Grammy-Award winner is The Nanny star Fran Drescher in the role of Cinderella’s stepmother Madame. Are you excited to call Carly Cinderella?
