A source close to the situation explained:
This girl is makin' moves, y'all!
The producers of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella announced that Keke is set to make her debut as the well known princess on September 9th!
She's definitely super excited about her new gig!
"I have an infinite amount of gratitude to show, I am thankful to be able to do this and excited for the discipline it will bring."
It's certainly a great opportunity for the budding superstar!
Lead producer Robyn Goodman is also thrilled to have the 20-year-old join the cast! She said:
"We are excited to have this multi-talented young actress/singer join our happy Cinderella family. She grew up in the Chicago acting community and definitely has musical theatre in her blood."
2014 is definitely the year of Keke Palmer, no?!!
