It may just end up a Cinderella story for "Call Me Maybe" singer Carly Rae Jepsen!

The 28-year-old pop singer has been picked to play the titular role of the Rodgers + Hammerstein version of the classic fairy tale for a 12-week run on Broadway beginning on Feb. 4.

Jepsen is apparently a huge fan of the fairy tale, calling the "Cinderella" story "hopeful and inspiring." The modern, musical take on the story has already received Tony nods.

Carly Rae Jepsen to Take Lead in 'Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella'

The Canadian-born singer became a sensation with her 2012 phone-themed teen anthem, despite the fact that she was already well into her twenties. Now, she'll still be playing the part of a much younger girl, but she'll be doing it in a very grown-up way. On Broadway.

Broadway is the pinnacle for nearly any singer or actor, and Jepsen will have reached it by age 30. But how will she do? Let's just hope she doesn't phone in her performance; we'd really hate to have to call her out. (Sorry, we couldn't help it.) For more on this story, head over to Broadway.com.
