The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston
as her Fairy Godmother.
There are more than 40 youth in grades 6-12 involved in the on-stage cast or technical crew. Collectively, these students represent 9 area schools and homeschools.
Cinderella is directed by Samantha Henry. The production team also includes Zachary Thomas, music director, Julie Lane choreographer, and Debra Searls, costumer.
