Carly Rae Jepsen is set to make her Broadway debut!

The "Call Me Maybe" star has signed a deal to play the title role in Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Cinderella" on the Great White Way. She starts in February and will appear in the show for 12 weeks.

"I’ve always been one to believe in the impossible, so I relate to her character completely," Carly Rae told the New York Times.

The Canada-born star attended a performing arts high school where she appeared in many campus productions. "It was essentially musical theater training with studies in singing, dancing and acting. My favorite part of the school year was our trip to New York, where we met Broadway performers and toured the theaters."
